Pregnancy #3 or Not ?

Yes I just had a silly question 4 you guys! A friend of mine thought she mite be preggo so i went & bought her a test 2 work yesterday(early result from dollar general). Well she was worried so i took one with her. Both were neg. then we had to get back to work. Came back 2 potty in like 5 mins. tops, & thought maybe i shud look again. Well mine said positive very lightly but oviously there. It was the first morning urine & im not suppose 2 get a period til April 6th. Im not sure if that was a false positive or not cuz i take one 2day & its negative. I have 2 kids already & thought it took a little longer 2 show up. ANy help please ladies??? Im all ears cuz i just dont understand anymore. THANK YOU

  • If it was after the time limit allotted for the test, you should be fine and NOT pregnant. I've done a lot of reading up on hp tests and they can show up positive after the time limit is up. So if you're really not sure, I'd take another, but it's unlikely. It also seems really early to get a positive when you wont' miss a period until April. I think it's just a fluke but just incase, I'd retest just to be sure!

  • I got a positive a little over a week BEFORE my missed period..very faintly and got a negative on the doctors then a positive blood test...10 minutes is usually the alloted time so if you got the positive in 5 minutes, i'd say you are most likely pregnant...
