Pregnant? I need some advice!!

Last month I took two home pregnancy test because I hadn't gotten my period yet, and they both came up positive. I went to the doctor, they did an ultrasound and a vaginal test and they didn't find anything. It usually comes around the end of the month ( appx 20-31) and I still haven't gotten my period. Friday I took another home pregnancy test and it came back positive. I'm not sure if there's any way all three could be false positives, let alone what causes a false positive. I'm not trying to make excuses, but it seems like I don't have the time to make another appointment with as much as me and my boyfriend work and take care of our 8 month old. I've had the early signs, breast tenderness, fatigue... Some feedback would be appreciated. I've been a wreck!

  • Crisis pregnancy centers do pregnancy tests free. I have never had an at home one be wrong (I think you're pregnant) but it has to be done in a clinic to be confirmed, so I suggest you go to a center- do it free, and quick and be out :)

  • I have heard you CANT have a false positive, which makes sense, but i'm not sure how true that is. I've only heard it and it wasnt from a doctor. I say go to a health clinic and get a free test done. Good Luck.;

  • if you already went to doctor and they said no..did you ask them why your HPT said possitive? I just took one found out I am need to go to doc. this scary cause me and DH so happy about this. But any way on box it says a miscarage or recent baby or infections can cause a false possitve. Just double check to be sure and ask why just to be safe.

  • your body can think its pregnant even if there is no baby inside. its called a pseudo, or chemical pregnancy. the tests are still positive, but no baby. its weird.

  • Did they pee test you or blood test you? If they didn't do a blood test, I would suggest asking for one since they are 1) more accurate and 2) detect pregnancy hormones at lower levels. Good luck!

  • ok so how far along were you when you went to the OB? was it right after your period was due? I went to the OB at 5 weeks prego and they wouldnt do a trans vaginal u/s becuase they said it might not even show the sac yet, just a thickened uterine lining. did you go to a good OB or was it a nurse or something? I would make another appt and I would ask for a HCG blood test because it would actually show the level of the pregnancy hormone in your body and not just whether or not it is present
