Can you really get a positive pregnancy test before your missed period ?

Ok i took 3 first response pregnancy test all of them came back positive the very first one i took was negative and i waited another 4 days got a faint pink line and then i waited another 3 days tested again got another positive but this time the second line was darker and then i tested again and it was even darker but the thing is i havent missed my period its not due till the 10th which is like 3 days away the first time i tested at 12 dpo then i tested again at 15 dpo but i always used my morning urine but i tested again in the afternoon and the lines were as dark as when i used my morning urine so could this really be positives or could it be false positives i really want another baby i just wanna ease my mind and i dont wanna stress about it . any advice will help thanks ?

  • Yes, because a percentage of women will have periods for months into a pregnancy. Just as a number will test negative for months into a pregnancy.

  • there were no home pregnancy tests in the 1960's when I was having my kids and now I can see that was a good thing. Moms are doing so many of them and looking anxiously for the line....wow....talk about driving yourself crazy on purpose!!! my advice is to just relax and wait for a few more weeks.
