    My LMP was 11-30-09, I dont know when I ovulated, but I took this test tonight, it was neg officially at first and then an hour later I got this...now I tweaked it a little but do you see anything? If you do, has anyone ever gotten a + that was truly positive an hour later? That was confirmed with another positive test?

    I see a line, but I have used those dollar store tests for years, and EVERY time I will get an evap, so do not look at it after 10 minutes. Test in a day or two to check again. :hug:

    I've used dollar store test my last 3 babies (I've used other brands also) I like the dollar store test but wouldnt trust a pos line after a hour unless I had gotten the line within in the time allowed! As much as I do like the test they are notorious for evap lines.

    I would not trust a dollar store test after 10 minutes. I have had many look dark pink when looking at them out of the time frame and I was not pregnant those cycles.

    Are you 1000% positive the line wasn't there in the beginning and only after drying it became more visable?

    In my experience, I've never had an evap with that brand and have always found them to be very reliable. If you bought extras, do a test now and take pictures at 1 min, 2 mins, 5 mins, 10 mins and see. If you're pregnant, I guarantee a line will be there even if weak. Heck, I had the tiniest, thinnest line at 6DPO! No other test picked anything up...just saying!

    Good Luck :hugs:
