Hi, just wondering has anyone ever seen three lines on a first response? I've just taken one and there is the control line and two test lines? Very close together but definitely two?! Just trying to work out how to upload a pic, but what on earth does that mean? Came up within a minute, and is pink in colour.

That is odd! Since it is outside the norm, I'd personally be getting a new test.

There is a pretty good chance, that it is positive but the dye has spread.

I would retest, either way though.

It actually looks like it is just dark edges of a line and you have your BFP.

Thanks! I'm still not all that confident. I did another test and it was very faintly positive (first one I hadn't pee'd for about six hours as I was out...second I had just drank a heap of water and obviously just gone to do the first test haha). I'll grab some more tomorrow if af doesn't arrive... Hoping she doesn't though!?

I don't know, I'm not really seeing three lines, even when I enlarged it. It looks like a control line and a test line which is a less dark in the middle. But congrats on your BFP! And don't worry, it still may be multiples.  wink.gif

So I emailed them yesterday and got a reply this morning. They said that the two lines doesn't mean anything it is still a positive. And judging by the cramping and bleeding i have today I think it was a positive?! I wish I never did the testNow though!  Thanks for Taking a look everyone, it was very odd!
