How reliable are these ?? I spent 20 mins holding one in all different positions including up against the bathroom light and there seems to be an extremly faint second line. But it's hard to see and I think i'm getting all excited about an evaporation line. (and yes, I know I promised myself I'd wait a week....). I did it and was waiting and nothing and then whatever way I looked at it I just though, OMG, is that a faint line !! Who has used them before?? Wil test again in 2 days cos I read online if you get a faint line to wait 48 hours to test again.

I used cheapie internet ones when I got my positive so I'm assuming yours are something similar. I started off with a very faint line, but it was def there. The following day it was a little stronger. A line is a line, so sounds good for you! Fingers crossed!!!

thanks for replying sleep monster. Tested again this morning (i'm not obsessed, am I ????) and still faint v, v, faint line. Dh thinks he can see it too so maybe i'm not seeing things. Will test again in a couple of days.

Oirish!!!! If you can see a line then there's a line, and particularily if hubbie can see it!! I used my hubbie as a good measure stick too. I don't think they see things like we do. You know if you use the test properly and read your result within the time directed, that you shouldn't get messed around with evaporation lines. I think they happen when the test has been left for ages. Good luck tomorrow!!! eh-hem - I mean in a couple of days time :o0

:o)ll :o)ll :o)ll If you and your dh can see it, its there!!! My af was over a week late last month, so I did lots of tests and spent ages holding them up to the light trying to find some sort of second line. There never was one and af eventually showed her ugly face! I did find a very faint evaporation line on one test as I emptied the bathroom bin, about 3 days after I had taken the test. I was all excited and did another test which was still negative - if your results are coming up faster now... [color=cyan:1n8j1vi2] [size=200:1n8j1vi2] Wooo Hooo!!!!![/size:1n8j1vi2][/color:1n8j1vi2]
