  • it was pobably too early to tell w theprevious test, and the hormones showed up on this one. my guess would be that your pregnant.

  • I would take another one or two now that you've gotten one positive test. I agree that it was probably just too early for the test to detect the hormone levels when you got the negative tests. I had that happen with my daughter. I took a test, it came out negative. Less than one week later I took like 5 more and they were all positive (I refused to believe the first 1, then second, then third, then fourth lol).

  • Your hormones have to be at a certain level for you to get a positive tesy. Totally normal to get negatives first. Goodluck!

  • Because they are home tests they can't pick up a hormone level very early in a pregnancy. You could wait for another week or two, or make an appointment with your doctor to have a blood test drawn which is more accurate. Either way, if you are pregnant you will have to see your doctor about OB care.
