Hmmm looks good. I can see a line in each picture. The line probably got wider and darker cos you opened the test. Apparently, tests that are in plastic casing (i.e. not the cheapy ones you get off Ebay) can create false positives if taken out of the case but I could see a line in the first picture so looks good. Fingers crossed for you xxx
Look at the bottom of this page in the link for evaporation line PHOTO examples. I found them really helpful! POAS ~ First Response Early Result
This is also info from the site: POAS ~ HPT FAQ
"What's an evaporation line? Evaporation ("evap") lines result with the test's antibody strip just looks slightly different than the space around it. There is a line of antibodies (usually made from mouse cells) in the Control and Test section. The Control line binds with any liquid and turns pink (or blue, in tests using blue dye.) The Test/Result line turns pink only if pregnancy hormone is detected. If not, the moisture passes over this strip and does not turn pink. It may, however, become more visible when the light hits the moisture on the strip-- it may appear gray, colorless, like a "dent" in the test, or like a "ghost line." It may appear at any time-- as soon as the urine hits it, after a few minutes as the test absorbs the moisture, or after the 10-minute time limit. It may appear when the test is drying, or after it has dried. It may disappear as the test is drying, or after the test has dried, or not disappear at all.
The simple fact is that there is always "something there" that is slightly visible-- it's simply the antibodies on the test that would turn pink in the presence of hCG. When the test becomes wet, or as it dries, or after it dries, the antibody strip may become more visible. Therefore, all tests may have them. It is not a defect; it's just how tests are made.
A real positive is identified by its color (pink or blue, whatever the color of the test's dye is) and its appearance within 10 minutes of urinating on the stick. A line that appears after 10 minutes, regardless of color, must be considered an evap line and is caused by the test's chemicals changing. HPT's are rapid assay diagnostics, which means any results appearing after the "rapid" time limit of 10 minutes are invalid."
I had the same thing happen to me a few days ago. I was a few days late and took a test and the postive line was so light its hard to see but its still there! Im not sure if it was there right after I took the test tho cuz it was so light I hadnt noticed it at all before and right when I went to throw it away I did.... trying to wait a few days and take another one... Good luck tho!
I do see something faint in the top ones. It looks almost like my first one at 9dpo. If this might help,here is my positive equate at 9dpo (i know you said you are 9dpo and i see you used an equate). As you can see mine was also super super faint but it did progress And I'll have my fingers crossed yours does also!
