  • Doc is right, only first morning urine counts. If you peed before going to the doc's office, you diluted the hormone.

    A positive is a positive, though, no matter how light. Congratulations!

  • Yup. This happened to me. First I want to say congrats!!!
    I had a very light positive - went to the doc and told me I WAS NOT pregnant. . . Three weeks later no period in sight. Went back to the doc... still negative. So I went to a specialist. She did a few additional tests... Finally, she gave me an ultrasound. I was pregnant. What is weird is that just for giggles I took a pregnancy test when i was in my 8th month and it came out negative... I was as big as a house and it came out NEGATIVE... crazy stuff.

  • the first morning is only early in pregnancy if the HCG level is too low..and obviously it is because it came up very light on the test..i never took a test first thing in the morning but i still came up preggo..but my HCG levels were just a little higher than yours..you probably found out very very early..oh yeah, congrats mama!

  • I'm four months preggers, and if I was to take a HPT right now it would still show up as a light positive. But the Dr. says everything is normal!

    Congrats as well!
