Curved line on HPT? Confused


Hi ladies - just wondering if this has happened to anyone before? My cycles have been really weird since a m/c in Oct, and it looks like my thermometer may be completely inaccurate (low batteries?), my BBTs have all been low. But if I have ovulated yet I'm guessing I'm about 8dpo. I took a preg test this morning just in case and got this.. a pink, curved line. I admit it appeared 15 min after the test and not the recommended 10 min. What do you think? Weird evap thing or possible BFP? Thanks for the input!

That's very odd!

As it was taken after the time limit and is curved, I'd say not to trust it

Try with a different test..

I hope you get your soon!

I think its the dye smudging. Sometimes IC's have some extra dye run across the strip after the time limit, and it can leave a smudgy bit or a nasty evap in its place. I've had it happen to me and I got so excited only to end up heartbroken.

Thank you so much.. I had a feeling maybe there was some weird dye thing, but for someone else to have had it happen makes me really think that's what happened. I'm glad I haven't gotten excited.. I was actually really worried it was a BFP because my temps have been showing so low.. I'd think if it was a positive then there would be something wrong with the pregnancy.
