I've had that happen to me twice too. I tested a few days before my periods were due. Got the faint lines for a few days, then disappeared. AF then arrived. Dr told me they were chemical pregnancies. He said that they are very, very common and them most women don't even realise they've had them. More and more people are testing early (before missed periods) so they are getting noticed more.
Each month I'm determined not to test early but I give in each time. For me (@37 years of age) I want to know that at least I am still ovulating and able to conceive, even if the pregnancies don't continue on. My dr HATES the early pregnancy tests.
When you tested, did the second line have any colour in it at all? If there is no colour, then the line was most likely and evaporation line.
The other thing I was thinking was, perhaps there was still a little bit of the hormones from your previous pregnancy in your system? When I had a missed miscarriage at 13 weeks, I still noticed the second line when testing, but got fainter as the time went on until it was gone.
The other thing I would suggest for next time, is to buy the digital clearblue tests that say pregnant or not pregnant. It takes the guess work out of that faint second line. Expensive though.
Or, it could be that you drank lots of water and has diluted your result. Try again in a couple of days.
I wish you all the very best Nina. I'm sure your baby will come along soon.
Thanks so much for such an informative answer!!!
First of all, i already had my hcg levels down to 0 so theres no way i could of had any pregnancy hormone left...they did this to make sure that i had none in my system.
The second line was a very very light pink. Not white.
And when i tested that morning I had been so dehydtrated which is my theory of why it showed up.
This morning i drank a fair bit of water before testing only because i was so thirsty.
So i've booked myself in to see my gp, I cant wait any longer.
I still have that pregnancy test and I can still see that second line.
I am so confused.
Also, i have heaps of pregnancy symptoms and i have (sorry for tmi) creamy white discharge which i had last time.
I hope i am !! But if not , ill keep trying xx
