Is this normal in early pregnancy?

I had a "light" positive HPT on Saturday night. I retook it Sunday morning and it was a little darker line, but still not as dark as the control line. I cannot remember when my LMP was, but guess it was about 5-1/2 weeks ago. My breasts have been tender, but not painful, but today they're barely sore. I have been ravenously hungry around meal times (almost nauseous) and have a low-grade headache. I went and had blood drawn this morning, but won't get results until tomorrow. Is all of this normal in early pregnancy?

  • Yep but it could also just be hormones from a late ovulation too. GL!

  • I think that if it looks like a positive pregnancy line, you're pregnant. No matter how light or dark the line is, a positive is a positive! Congrats! :)
