    Pregnancy Test smudged

    An_250101 posted:
    I haven't actually missed my period, still two to three days away but had unprotected sex around the time of ovulation, so I am thinking that I may be. Question is: took a pregnancy test today that showed negative with a smudge going into the top part of the positive line. It wasn't a whole line just a smudge into, like starting the line. Does that mean it's still a posiive? Or is it negative? Or if I am pregnant is it still too early for the pregnancy hormone to be detected fully? Was the test defective? I plan to take another test but I can also wait to see if I start since it isn't that far away now.

    I am now officially late for my period! Having a little cramping, breast are achey, and very emotional with mood swings. Is this pregnancy or is my period just going to be a few days late?

    How late is your period? I've had mine be 3 days late without being pregnant. I'd wait a few days and see if it comes and if it doesn't, take another test.

    I would still wait a few days. If it's a week late with no signs of showing, take a test.

    I was going to wait until at least tomorrow or thurs. and see. I have been having twinges in my uterus. My breasts are getting really sore around the nipples and the little bumps are showing more than normal. Don't really know if they are darker, though. I have been extremely wet down there with white thick mucous, although it's not in my panties like usual though. Is this just impending period or pregancy? Getting really impatient here...Also, I have one child already but I don't remember all these symptoms. The only thing I noticed in early pregnancy was implantation bleeding.

    NOW, I am 5 days late. Took a pg test and it came up negative. Is it still too early? Is something else going on? Or is my period just going to be extremely late? It's never this late, by the way, it's either a day early or a day late!

    You may be one of those women who take longer to show on a pregnancy test than others. I'd wait another few days before testing again.

    Thanks. This is very confusing. My first pregnancy, as soon as I missed my period I knew I was pregnant but don't remember how long after that I took a test. I only took one and as soon as the control showed up so did the positive results. So, I'm not understanding this at all. My body, though, just does not feel like it usually does when I am about to start. It just feels different!!!
