Took an HPT - help!

Hello everyone!

We have been TTC for awhile and I finally have (maybe) a line?! I took a pregnancy test and I can't tell if it's positive. Its very faint. I used a test from the Dollar Tree (I heard those were good). It is a pink test strip (as opposed to blue).

Do these give false positives? It's so faint that in some lights I can't see it. But I took some photos and it came out in some of them.

How faint is too faint??

Thanks for any help sent my way!

Can you post the photo? I've never had a false positive with those, but I haven't used too many of them. These other ladies know more than I do about it. I hope it is positive. You could wait a day or so and test because if you are the line should show up darker. Good luck!
