Default Faint Line or just Crazy???

Okay - here I am at 17DPO with no AF. So I decided to test. I last tested on 12DPO and got a BFN so just prepared for AF. I used FMU and did a Dollar Tree test then decided I'd do a FRED too since I don't really trust the Dollar Tree ones. I "dipped it" in a cup instead of using mid-stream - only 5 seconds like the package says. After about one minute I see a VERY FAINT line on the FRED. What do you think??? Shouldn't it be way darker by now if I indeed was pg? Last time I was pg I tested 18DPO with mid afternoon urine and got a very dark BFP. If it is positive - aren't late implanters usually poor pregnancies?? Could the line have showed because I dipped it and too much urine was on it??? Of course I keep staring at it and it is getting darker the longer it sits but I know that isn't accurate. What do ya'll think??? Guess I just have to wait it out. If it is a BFN at least my cycle will be pushed out and I won't have to IUI on weekends anymore!

Thanks!!!!!

We often dipped versus stream -- that way if we had a defective test - which happened on either OPK or PG tests-- we could retest.

I would try again tomorrow am and see if the line gets darker - but only if you have more tests - I wouldn't buy more tests.

I hope for your sake that this is a very good sign - it can't be a bad sign! I will cross my fingers!

I always dipped instead of stream. I have bad aim and wanted to make sure that I got it on there.
 
My tests were always accurate. I always went by "a line is a line." It's not uncommon to get a false negative but it's extremely rare that you'd get a false positive.

I have to agree with Dopey...I think a line is a line no matter how dark. Take another test tomorrow & let us know how it goes!!
