Does a BFP after the time limit count?

I think I have a BFP, but the line showed up after the time limit – does that count?

Don’t celebrate quite yet — but sometimes very early BFPs show up faintly after the time limit. But it could also be an evap line. As a general rule,  you shouldn’t read tests after the time limit.  In reality, though, I know many of us stare at them all day long as if we can will it to turn into a BFP.

Test again tomorrow and see if you have a clearer line. OK, who am I kidding?  Test again later today and see if you get a line. Be sure to hold your pee and not drink too much liquid so you can get a concentrated sample.

If you don’t get BFPs on any of your future tests, it was probably just an evap. Click here for more info on evaps.
