I've only gotten a second line on a home pregnancy test after the 10 minute time limit. (The line was colored or colorless) I know you are not supposed to read the results after that time, but I read that early on in a pregnancy the second line takes a while to show up, what if I'm actually pregnant? I also read that home pregnancy test are qualitative test and not quantitative test so it would give me a negative result after a while when my hcg is too high. I don't know what to do. What are some ways to know for sure if you are pregnant or not without a blood test? Can you feel your abdomen like doctors do to tell? Plus, I had sex on the last day of my period in March. Since the egg was already shed and I don't ovulate right away so the sperm won't survive for 5 days to fertilize it does that mean that my chance at becoming pregnant was highly unlikely right??? I was also on birth control around this time and I cant remember if I took it the night before or 100% consistent. I never got a second line right away it was always after about 2 hours.
