2 Positives on expired tests

Hey Ladies!

I am 2 days past due, and yesterday I started feeling nauseated, gassy/bloated, and having lower back pains. So this morning I took two pregnancy tests that I had left from DS. I got positives on both of them (not light lines either), but they were both expired by at least a year. DH and I haven't been actively trying, but we haven't been preventing either because we would love another baby!

I didn't want to post this on the "Am I Pregnant" board, because I thought some of you who actually are pregnant might have had the same experience.

I know the best thing to do would be to buy another test or go to the doctor, but I can't drive so I will have to wait till DH gets home. In the meantime I thought I would see your experience/opinions!

Thanks!

I have never tested on an expired test, but I tested the day AF was due and got very dark positive lines, I would say if you have all symptoms and got two positive test then you are preggo, but definitely go to the store once the DH to test on a non expired test .

Baby dust to you

When DH got home and after I surprised him with the news we went and got another test, and it was positive! It was a digital and it showed up in about a min, when it can take up to 3!
