Welcome to ehealthforum,
The description of your urine pregnancy test results suggests possibility of a ‘faint positive’ result. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). You can also consider repeating the urine pregnancy test in next 7-10 days on early morning first urine sample to see if it turns positive. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods of time.
Take care.
