Trying to conceive

So this morning I am 11DPO and I took a FR @ 7:10am. I'm clearly a rookie at this because, well for starters, I didn't put the cap back on afterwards. I watched the urine soak the strip until it reached the control line and waited for like a minute figuring the pregnancy line would have appeared before the second line. At the time, I didn't know the second line was just the control line so people know the rest is working. So I just assume the test was negative, put the cap on and threw it back in the box. I came back into the bathroom 10 - 15mins later to throw the test out and there was a light but definitely pink line. The line has slightly lightened through the day but it's definately there. I bought another test (digital this time) and around 11am and it was neg but my pee was pretty dialuted.
So, here I sit...should I test again in the am? Just wait till Thursday, my period due date...or am I pregnant? I've been reading up about evaporation lines and one comment or said if you test without the lid & the strip is exposed to air while testing it can produce a false positive...

I would say definitely test again with your fmu (first morning urine) to be sure. 12dpo with a first response early response test for example should be pretty accurate If you take the test correctly.

Congratulations! Just FYI, the digital tests are much less sensitive so maybe leave it a week if you want to test with one of those again.
