Faint positive on Pregnancy test

My last period was may 9-18 and i irregular and my period usually comes 2 weeks after my period ends and the 2 week mark was yesterday. My period before my last was 23 day cycle too . I've been waking up almost every night to go pee, my boos/ nipples are sore, i have a weird sensation in my lower stomach, I am so so tried, my husband says i've been bitchy, well I took a test this morning and it showed a faint positive. My husband is like did you take the test right, I did, but maybe it's to early in the pregnancy to make a stronger line or maybe the test could be wrong, IDK but i do have the symptoms. I do have a 2 1/2 year old boy.
it was a target brand and i've read that they are giving out false positivies
my last period was may 9-18 so why is it telling me I am about 4 weeks
it also has me putting in how long my cylces but i am irregular so i don't know how long they are. I chart them and i have anywehre from 21 days to

  • I would wait it out a few more days and take another test with another brand. A positive is USUALLY a positive, no matter what. But I got 2 false positives from walmart's early result brand and it's been like 3 weeks and I haven't gotten another positive from any other brand, so I think some brands are starting to slack with their tests. :-/
    Just wait a couple days and take it again.

  • even if you get a dollar store one (which I did) a positive is a positive UNLESS you are taking like one specific type of medication. Look up on the web what it is.

  • There is NO such thing as a false positive. (Unless you are taking a certain brand of fertility medicine). Your body will only produce HCG when pregnant, and that's what the test picks up. So congratulations. You ARE pregnant =].

  • ok thanks, but i have heard the men took target brand and got positive. I have all the symptoms, I took walmart brand before and got positive so I don't doubt store brands but i just read bad reviews about target. If you go on their web site and click on the target brand early pregnancy test it will give almost all bad review. I want to take another test but I am afriad it will be neg and I don't want to waste any money right now. So if I still do not get my period for awhile then i might retest but I have the symptoms
