I had to put fine speckled down, but for the record, I have high homogeneous ANA too. Just my speckled came out first and are higher than my homogeneous. So I guess that would be primary. Thanks - Kristin

I'm not sure because I was never told. Because of this, I can't vote and therefore can't see the results but by the comments it looks like "speckled" is ahead.
