    Pregnancy tests

    I have been very sick lately with heavy sore breasts sick stomach and a very active bladder. My husband convinced me to take a pregnancy test and it was very faint positive but I could tell there was a line and so could my husband, so I took another and I could see a slightly lighter line but my husband couldn't. We drove back to the store and bought 3 more I took one as soon as I got home and it was negative and 4 hours later I took another and it was negative. The last 2 tests were more sensitive than the first two. Could I be seeing things or did I not wait long enough? I am saving the last test for day after tomorrow, I am just confused! Has anyone else had a similar experience and were you pregnant or not?

    Have you missed a period yet?
    If not, it's best to wait until you have.

    If you have missed a period, you can wait a week to let the hormones build up if you are pregnant and take the test again.

    If you can't wait, you can always go to the doctors to have them see if it shows in the blood test.

    Yes I missed my period, I only spot a little because I have mirena but I do not think it is in the right position and when I went to my dr he did not check it all he did was clip my strings, and my husband keeps telling me that I am pregnant, but all three of the tests I have taken after the two positives have been negative

    You should go to a different doctor!
    find a doctor that will consider your concerns valid and follow up or at least explain to you what is going on.

    You should go to the doctor and get a bloodtest.

    Good luck.
