I took a test this morning at 10 dpo. I glanced at it and didn't see a second line. I didn't wait the full five minutes b/c I already knew it was going to be negative. About an hour later I went to glance at it again, hopeful thinking I guess, and there was definitely a second line! Lighter than the control line but definitely a line. I've never gotten a positive this early. We've been trying for a year since our last m/c. I think I just can't believe I'm finally seeing a line! Now all I can think about it how I took my daughter to the dentist yesterday and sat with her in my lap as they did xrays. As they did it the thought crossed my mind, "what if I am pregnant?" Well, that will add to the worry I already feel. Should I call the doctor? Or just take another test? I'm still in shock!

I would wait until tomorrow morning with FMU and test again. If you didn't look at it again within the first 5 minutes, who knows if it didn't go positive within that time. I know, with the Wondfos I used, they NEVER went positive...even hours later....it was stark white. That being said, depending on the HPT you used, you could have an evap line hours later. When I had a BFP a few months ago, I tested at 12 dpo and it took about 1-2 minutes for it to gradually show up. 10 dpo is pretty early for most people.

I would suggest you do the test, set a timer for 5 minutes, go do something else, then go back and look at it.

Good luck to you!

Oh....and don't worry about the x-rays. I was dental assistant and the amount of radiation you get from dental x-rays is pretty minute and they cover you with a lead vest. Anyway, the most crucial time for any possible exposure to certain chemicals, etc. in a developing embryo, is between 6-9 weeks. You're fine.

CONGRATS!! A line is a line, you got a BFP!! =) It won't be real dark at 10dpo so that is ok, test again if you want but I never test again once I get any line!! =)

Well another line is a good thing! Honestly, I would wait a few more days (maybe until 14 dpo) and then call the dr to get a beta done. You don't want to get one much earlier than that. The number would be low and it would freak you out. Just give it chance to do it's thing. Feel free to test in the meantime. If it's gone by the time 14 dpo comes around then you know there is no reason to get a beta but just because you think it might have gotten lighter doesn't necessarily mean your levels are dropping. The concentration of hCG in your urine would great effect the line. If you drank a lot before etc...
