Did the faint line appear within the right time frame? If so, it looks like a faint/early positive to me.

Yes it appeared in the right time, is there any chance that because I took it before and not first thing that, that might be why it's faint

Yes, its positive x

I only paid £1 for two of them that was the only ones that the shop had, what is the best test to take because I want to do another one just to be sure x

You are pregnant. Whether you spend £1 or £13, they just measure if you're producing hcg which is the human pregnancy hormone. The extra money is for fancy packaging or digital whatsits.

You are pregnant.

I take it this is completely unplanned?

All tests are equal. Impossible to get a false positive. Hth.

Katiexo Sun 07-Jun-15 22:47:57

Yes this was unplanned, it's a bit of a shock to me because I never thought I would be, what would you recommend now, would you recommende taking another test or go straight to the doctors x

It looks to me your pregnant. I took a cheap one first time and I didn't believe it when it came up so I took another 3 to make sure. If you aren't certain take another one but to me that looks like a positive one. Congrats

Thank you it's came as a bit of a shock to me, still can't believe it, think I will take another one to be sure x

I wouldn't take another test, no. Assuming you're happy to proceed with the pregnancy, you need to check with your surgery to see how they do things. In some areas they ask that you just book in with the midwife around 8 weeks (I'm assuming you're around 4 weeks at the moment). Some places ask you to see the GP for a referral but they won't do a pregnancy test or anything, just ask questions, give you the opportunity to ask questions, that sort of thing.

You could buy some folic acid from the supermarket. It's really cheap and it's recommended you take it for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

If there's anything you're worried about or would like to know, ask on here. There will be an antenatal thread too if you want to talk to women who are due when you are.

Have you told your partner?

Katiexo Sun 07-Jun-15 23:09:54

I haven't told my partner he has recently broke up with me after we slept together, so I really don't no what to say to him because am scared he will not want it

Using the pulling out "method" that is no method and then ending it with you? He sounds like a peach. I'd have quite a lot to say to him! None of it helpful to you perhaps...

You and the baby are all that matters at the moment. You need to confirm the pg and then see the doctor first, and try to see how you feel about a baby. Lots of luck and best wishes to you.

Definitely pregnant. Sorry your partner has been such an ass x

Looks positive to me. Do a digital one and call the gp.

Is your ex a responsible man? Do you think he will step up or walk away?
