1 Bump

4 positive pregnancy tests....

Ok so yesterday I took 3 pregnancy tests, and all were positive...

I took another today, and it was positive as well.

I had my last period feb 26th...and it ended a week ago today..
it was regular for the most part, but was sort of lighter during the middle of it....which it usually isnt...

But 2 days after my period ended, I began lightly bleeding... and still am. I called the dr today and they said it sounds perfectly normal. But because I haven't technically "missed" a period yet, that they all could be false positives...!?!?!?

So they recommended that I wait 2 more weeks and test again....what the heck? I thought a positive was a positive?

Also I thought that false negatives happened more than false positives...??

has anyone experienced this??

  • It's pretty normal to have period-like bleeding early in pregnancy. Monday call your doctor back and demand a blood test. If they won't give it to you, tell them fine you'll find a doctor who will.
    False positives are very rare. I only know one brand of tests that will give false positives on a fairly consistent basis - equate, the walmart brand. False negatives, on the other hand, are VERY common.

  • I would ask for a blood test. 4 positive tests sounds like you're pregnant to me.

  • Four false positives?! No way! Get a digital to confirm and then take it to your OB's office and demand a blood test.

  • I know there is something with hormones VERY RARE that will make a preg test say positive, not sure what it is though.....either way you need a blood test from the doc, i don't think they should tell you they won't give you one
