Hi all, I cannot for the life of me work out my due date. The reason being is that I missed a period in November completely, I was taking tests after the missed period and got negatives for days weeks after. I still kept trying to conceive between then and now, I took a test about a week ago and was still negative. I took two tests today and they both came up as positive but faint lines. Helllp!!

Without an ultrasound machine or a few more dates and details I don't think anyone would be able to tell you what your due date is.

Have you made an appointment go see a midwife yet? They may send you for an early scan if you're not sure of dates.

No, I only found out yesterday. I'm freezing out because the pregnancy test this morning is still faint, and one came up negative!!! Booking into the doctors today I think, will they do a blood test? Or a wee sample?

Mine was really faint, then I done clear blue and said 1-2 weeks which was accurate for me. Congratulations �� I recommend you try a clear blue digital xx

Drs don't generally confirm pregnancies as tests are so accurate now. You may be better calling your GPs and seeing if you can speak to the midwife. You'd usually have a booking in appointment around 8 weeks.

Try a clear blue digi. Was accurate with both my dc. Esp as with DC2 I had no periods as was still expressing for DC1

As a general rule, you get a positive test two weeks after ovulation and therefore 4 weeks after LMP. I know you didn't have a period, but the online calculators work from LMP, so if you count back 4 weeks, use this date on the online calculators, this will give you a rough date.

You'd get a more accurate date at your dating scan.

Test again tomorrow with FMU to be sure.

Thanks guys, it's becoming abit of an obsession now. I've just looked at both tests now and obviously they have dried and both have a second line now, I know you can get evaporation lines, but last week when I were getting bfn's I checked and checked and checked and there were no lines, even hours later, so not sure about this whole evaporation thing. Gonna get a frer and a cb tomorrow. I'm going to just estimate 4 weeks in that case :D feeling happy!
