Am I pregnant?

Can anyone help? I did a boots own brand pg test last night and this morning, both of which came up with a v faint positive. Did a clear blue digital at lunchtime which came up 'pregnant'. But then when I was at gp later on today, he did a test and it was negative??? ( I had been drinking lots during the day and it is only day 29 of my cycle).

Has anyone had false positives??! Or is it more likely the gp one is a false negative?! Please help!

As far as I'm aware it's extremely rare to get a 'false positive'! I would say just do one more test and if it comes up positive (be it faint or not) I'd say you were pregnant! smile Good luck smile

I do believe your are pregnant, Op. Definetly retest tomorrow and let us know the result!

I'd think the gp's wasn't picking up the hormones as its so early and you were well hydrated.

Do another one with your first wee of the day tomorrow as it'll be it's most concentrated. Good luck!

yes.

Yes. Your wee was too dilute for the GP' s test.

Thank you! I went from being soooo excited to devastated....now I'm kind of calm again! Bought another test (!) and will do it first thing tomorrow morning!! Please keep fingers crossed!! X

Or GP didn't wait long enough for faint second line. It takes 2 minutes for a definite negative & TBH GPs will not always give it the required length of time!! And yes, HCG levels are at their highest first thing in the morning so do your next test first thing.

Well I,ve just done another digital test with my first urine of the day and it definitely says positive! So I'm starting to believe it!!!! It,s been a long 4 years to get to this point, so think it,ll take a while to sink in!!
