Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

it doesnt matter if its faint if its faint it could be from not getting enough pee on it
You're pregnant. My doctor said it is more likely to get a false negative than a false positive...and three positives...congrats!
Be careful, though.  I had a home test and the doctor's test with faint lines and was told everything was fine.  It ended up I had an ectopic pregnancy and a ruptured fallopian tube at week 8.  Talk to the doctor about your concerns, and take a couple more tests to be safe.  I learned the tests should get darker as the pregnancy advances, if not, you may want to see someone asap. 
My test this time around was faint but now I'm 34 weeks. I would definitely say you are pregnant! Congrats and good luck :)
