Bleeding in early pregnancy.

Hi all,
I need some advice, as I'm very confused or in deny. (we have been trying for 10mths)
My period was due three days ago, I took a pregnancy test (a strip) the day after I was due and it was negative. I bought a more expensive test and it was positive but a faint line. I took another one this morning and it was negative. By this afternoon I had light bleeding. No way as heavy as my usually period but heavier than spotting. My breast are very tender, (which was the first sign with my first pregnancy). My husband says we should wait until Saturday (a week after my period was due) and do another test.
Should I go to my doctors? Should I wait?

Buy a packet of tests and do another one. There is no point in waiting until Saturday unless you want to do so.

I know your period is overdue but I used one of the early predictor tests before my period was due and got a faint line. I was pregnant so those tests are very sensitive and accurate.

Good luck.

I had a small bleed when I expected my period. Was testing beforehand and all negative. Stopped testing when I had the bleed. A few weeks later I felt bloated. Retested and got a BFP! I was using early predictor ones too and they didn't pick it up so......
