To think that I am pregnant even though two tests give opposite results.

The early indicator one has two lines, albeit one very faint. I did it first thing this morning.

The Clear Blue one says not pregnant, I did it an hour ago.

I gave birth to our DS 14 weeks ago, my DH reckons the hormones could be in my body from then and I have a false positive because of that.

Anyone know anymore about this?

Apologies if it offends anyone.

I don't about the reliablity of pregancy tests. I just wish you and your family well.

No idea about testing so soon after a birth/hormones left over but I had 6 negatives and knew I was pregnant, eventually got the positive and I'm now 26 weeks so it was definitely a positive! Is your cycle back to normal following the birth?
Congratulations on your son btw!x

Why would it offend anyone?

It seems very soon....go to the doctor maybe? Congratulations though on the new baby!x

Don't know anything about hormones after childbirth but 14 weeks seems a long time for the hcg to stick around.

It may be that the clear blue test isn't as sensitive as the other one you took- especially as you say it's an early indicator one.

Try again in a couple of days and hopefully you'll get a clearer answer.

I seem to remember that you can get false negatives with these tests but not false positives. Also the test done first thing this morning will have a higher hormone concentration so be more reliable.

I think it's congratulations.....smile

I think you are pregnant!

I'd phone your midwifery team and ask. It is certainly possible to be pregnant at 14 weeks, although unlikely.

Are you breastfeeding? Have you had unprotected sex?

Congratulations wink

I'm offended by your apology. wink

I'd wait about 5 weeks and go to the GP. Then they'll be able to do an internal scan to confirm if you have a baby or not. It's the only way you'll be able to tell 100%.

Also, it is possible. 14 weeks is about 3.5 months. You are capable of getting pregnant again. Some people get pregnant as soon as 10 weeks after their previous baby.

When did you last have sex?

After 14 weeks, I doubt you'd still have hormones left over.

ireallydontlikemonday Tue 18-Nov-14 14:15:05

It doesn't matter if the feint line is feint, a line is a line and as pp said, the concentration of hte hormone would be stronger.

When did you last have sex?

I was breast feeding albeit exclusively expressing and became pregnant when DS was 16 weeks. I now have a 10 month old and a 23 month old!

Breastfeeding is not a reliable contraceptive!

There is a year and 5 days between my 2, it's definitely possible to fall pregnant quickly. Good luck smile

MommyBird Tue 18-Nov-14 14:23:44

I had exactly the same pregnancy test problem!

She's almost 5 now. Congrtuitions!

Stormingateacup Tue 18-Nov-14 14:23:45

My understanding is that you can get a false negative but not a false positive.

TrisMas Tue 18-Nov-14 14:24:59

There are only 10 months between my niece and nephew (on dh's side) so it's entirely possible!

Jasharps Tue 18-Nov-14 14:25:42

It's unlikely that it's a false positive as op have said you can get false negs but not the other way about (unless test is faulty). A line is a line, it's likely that you're early in preg hence it being feint and the other test neg. Congratulations

I did an exam on hCG recently and it leaves your body around 3-4 weeks after birth IIRC.

Congrats are in order it seems smile

I had six negatives and then a positive with DD1. (And they were spaced over 8 days)

I don't know anything about when the hormones leave but I would say a faint positive is likely to be more accurate than a negative.

Ludways Tue 18-Nov-14 14:54:46

I had 5 negatives and an internal at the doctors where they said negative. He's 13 now!

Congratulations!!

financialwizard Tue 18-Nov-14 14:59:21

Another one who had several negatives and that negative is nearly 5.

Amber76 Tue 18-Nov-14 14:59:40

I did a pregnancy test ten days after period due and it was negative. Two days later showed positive. He's nearly 17 months now!

My Aunt was 9 months and 2 weeks younger than my Dad and she wasn't premature!
