Ok so i did a pregnancy test at 5.30am yesterday morning, and it was negative, im pretty sure, but when i checked it like 10 hours later (i had to keep it cause i cant throw in the trash as my mom and dad would have found it) there was the slightest slightest faint line in the other area, making it positive, does that mean im pregnant if it wasnt there before but was like hours later? please help!

Pregnancy tests are only meant to be read within a certain time frame, usually 3-5 minutes, or however long the test says it is accurate for. Any longer than that and the results can be screwy, because of the urine soaking into the pad more than it should, etc. So if you took that yesterday morning, and it had been 10-14 days since your risk, the result you got when you looked at it yesterday morning is the accurate one.
