Situation is, Have two ds (2.5 & 1.5). Dp and I were just using condoms up until i decided to go back on pill last month. I took one pill then as i started antibiotics and pill wouldnt work anyway i stopped taking it so oonly took one pill...a few days after a get a 'period' (breakthrough bleed - had only had real period a week previous). so my breakthrough bleed lasts about a week and for the next two weeks after this i have blacky/brown discharge every time i wipe but not enough for pad iykwim.

so yesterday ds1 announced at the dinner table that i have a baby in my belly which i thought was odd. This morning my boobs were sore and felt really bloated so did a test and it was bfp, bit faint but defo there. ive also just done a FR and it was also BFP. you think I am having a mis??im thinking maybe i have lost baby and that is why line is faint??? what do i do now, do i got to gp or ring maternity hosp???

Just to clarify, the faint line isnt that faint, just not as dark as control line.

I had exactly the same happen to me. If you have a positive test then you are pregnant - you need to get an appointment with your GP and they will hopefully refer you for an early scan to see what's going on. This happened to me last year and unfortunately I did MC. But a few months later I got pregnant again and although I had spotting until I was 9 weeks, everything was fine and I am now 33 weeks. So the only way to know is to get a GP appointment as soon as possible. Fingers crossed for you
