I took 7 home pregnancy test and 5 came out positive, 1 came out negative, and 1 didnt work. I am only around 5 weeks and I started spotting and cramping a little. I took another test and it was negative. The test brand was Equate. Should I be worried or could the test be false-negative?

If you are spotting just a little and the cramps are light then you shouldn't worry.

I had spotting 4w5d-5w1d and I had light on/off cramping from the day of my BFP to 9w. Its nothing to worry about unless you are bleeding a pad's worth and are cramping bad.

Just relax and put your feet up.

If you are still worried in the morning you should call your OB.

Hi, I agree with Ms. Horo, you should relax, this is my first pregnancy but I've read that a little cramping and spotting is normal. I would advise you to make an appointment with the OB so the can give you more information, they can predict you due date and they will do a blood test to confirm your pregnancy. That would make you feel much better, but until then jus relax ok

Ok! Thank you so much! This is my first pregnancy and I just had no idea what to expect or anything.

Every pregnancy is different even for women who have been pregnant before.
This is my first too. If I have a concern I research it and if I can't find anything about what I'm experiencing I post it here. There a lot of helpful women here.
Moms are helpful too if you are going to tell them (I will be in the next few weeks).
I did tell a friend of mine who has two beautiful girls, she is very blunt and will tell me without sugar coating. She is a great resource for me.

We are here for you.

I had the same issues with the cramping and spotting. I called my doctor since it was another 3 weeks frommy first appt and she got me in the next day to confirm and to do a ultrasound. You couldnt see a whole lot but little one was there. Pic on the fridge makes you feel so much better.

Thank you so much! We haven't told our families yet, but we are going to soon. I have a great friend who is 9 weeks and it's extremely nice to be able to do this with her and also come on here and be able to ask things from women who know first hand.
Thanks again!!
