False postive on my hpt?

  1. I hope it's okay to post this here...if not, I'm sorry. I have been feeling pregnant for 2 weeks and decided to test today after being late for 2 days. I bought a Clear Blue Easy (non digital) test and it immed. turned postive in less than a minute. I was excited because we have sort of been trying. I then read some complaints about this particular brand giving false positives. Any one have experience with this test? I've also been having PMS cramps for about a week. Sorry if this is TMI! I'm getting a digital test for tomorrow morning.
     
  2. it's actually rare to get a false positive in my experioence moderating a parenting board.
    Either your baody makes the hormone when you're pregnant or it doesn't.
    It's possible that some people think they get a false positive becasue something happens and the pregnancy is no longer viable{?}

    I think we may be congratulating you tomorrow when you update!
     
  3. ^^ I agree. It is rare to get a false positive, and far more common to get a false negative by testing too early. I hope you get the results you are hoping for with the next test!

  14. YAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! :yahoo: Congrats! Listen, I took like four pregnancy tests with all FOUR of my kids - because I was just so like "what if it's not?" but the hg hormone wouldn't be showing up if you were NOT pregnant!! Wonderful - get your tush to your doctor and set up your first appointment! You need to make sure to get your due date (although my pregnancy date wheel would help too - you just go by the date of your last period and count 40 weeks ahead) AND start your prental vitamins right away!!! Oh boy! Gosh - I'm so jealous. Those days are gone for me. I'm 40 and over having any more babies (plus hubby got "snipped") - but happy with 2 girls and 2 boys....:rolleyes:
     
  15. Congrats!!!!!!!
