    Pregnancy Test
    Fatafehi_8674 posted:
    Hello All,

    I am a mother of 3 children. I had a Miscarraige 3/2011. My husband and I really want to have a baby together, we have had no luck since.. I was experiencing Sciaitic pain, Sore breasts, and slight cramps yesterday on 1/4/13. I am not supposed to start my period until 1/6/13. I want to mention I experienced Sciatic pain at the begining of all 3 of my other pregnancies, even with my miscarraige too i had in 2011. I have not had sore breasts like this my misscarriage in 2011. Anyhow i took a pregnany test earlier today 1/5/13,left it in the bathroom and went to put a load of laundry on it only took like 15 minutes to complete came back to the bathroom and noticed i light/faint second line on the stick.. Did I want to long to check the test? Are these results accurate and should i retest? How long does it take for HCG to be detected into your system? Please hekp! Thank You!

    I also tested a few days before my period was due, and it was indeed positive. I also had a miscarriage in November of 2011. It is actually more likely to get a false negative than a false positive, so in all likely-hood you are pregnant. I wish you the best. I am currently 12 weeks.

    ^agree. The first pregnancy test I took with this pregnancy was so faint DH wasnt sure but I told him a line is a line!
    I hope everything is going well and that it was a BFP. Good luck!!

    I hope that you retested. They say its inaccurate after 10 minutes. Also depending on the test you used (blue dye is natorious for this) you could get a evap line that makes it look positive when its really not. Best wishes. I hope it turns out that it was indeed a positive.

    ^^good point, Heather... I forgot about the blue dye tests. The month before my bfp I used a blue dye test and got the evap line and was getting excited for no reason. Really sucks! After that I made sure the tests I used were NOT blue dye.
