Is half a line on a pregnancy test a BFP?

I took a pregnancy test and only half a line appeared. It is thick and pink, and it showed up in the time limit. Am I pregnant?

I’m sorry to tell you that a half-line on a pregnancy test is an error. This is assuming you mean it was cut in half horizontally – so it was a short test line next to the reference line. These happen from time to time, even on the best brands of tests. It doesn’t mean you are not pregnant… but the information you got from that peestick was about as accurate as peeing on an actual stick from the tree in your front yard.

Now, if the line was cut in half vertically – meaning it just looked thinner than the reference line – that is most likely a BFP. Sometimes those test lines are thinner, or thicker, than the control line. But they do always extend all the way up – and should be just as tall as the reference line on a || test.
