I have just used a Clearblue digital test. The result came up within 2 minutes as a BFP 1-2 weeks. On account of the fact it had expired in October 2010, would you ignore this test?

It's probably correct imo. Do another one to make sure.

I would say you are pregnant, congratulations. but go and get another test to put your mind at rest.

I don't think being out of date would give a false positive, so congratulations smile

MsCrow Wed 06-Jul-11 14:00:36

Oh Christ.

I agree. It sounds like a positive to me! Congratulations smile

Does the fact I'm taking an antibiotic (erythromycin) effect things?

DuelingFanjo Wed 06-Jul-11 14:13:03

hope that it's news you wanted. I don't know about the antibiotics though.

I doubt an antibiotic could affect the test result as the test detects the pregnancy hormone, but it could have affected your pill (if you were on it).

MsCrow Wed 06-Jul-11 14:22:38

No, no pill. Could it effect an embryo? Not really the best news. Not the end of the world. I'm going to ignore it all for a couple of days and see if AF arrives in two days.

Antibiotic extremely unlikely to affect baby...

Congrats Ms Crow: your level of denial is amusing.... grin

Several episodes of POAS later I'm ready to believe I'm pregnant because AF is now 2 days late and the line gets stronger. I really hope this pregnancy progresses ok. It's our first one, but much wanted.

Congratulations! It's great that it snuck up on you a little unexpected- saved you a lot of worry trying every month!
