Hi all

This evening I did a tesco own brand pregnancy test 29 days after the start of my last period. Is states that results should be read in 3 minutes but can be quicker based on how much hormone is present. As soon as the fluid run across the windows, within a few seconds, the result was positive. I have already have 2 kids and the results were positive in less than the inidcated time, but not that quick. I am going to test again in a couple of days just in case even though they say false positives are rare/don't exist.

I just wondered if such a quick result could mean I am further along than i thought even though i had a period last month especially as i remember it being lighter than normal. I know its sometimes possible to get a period the first month of pregnancy but i have never had this before.

I guess my first scan will be the only way of knowing, just interested in knowing if getting a positive result so quickly might inicate something like being further along - or even twins!

I had this. I really didn't think anything was untoward, as we were having a break from TTC that month. So I didn't test until I was about a week late (maybe a bit more) and the result was very quick and very definite.

Was only one baby though!

The 3 mn is the outer limit I think. My positive tests have always been positive as they cross the window iyswim. Congratulations!

I did a test 2 days before period due and the same thing happened...positive line came up before I had even moved off the toilet!
And yes, it was twins...grin

Hiya, just used a tescos test this morning and got a BFP and it was quite quick too. I wouldn't worry about it and you'll get more accurate dating at your scan. If you're really worried you could always buy one of those tests that tell you how many weeks you are.

Same here. CB digital and I hadn't even put the cap back on before that ominous word flashed up and scared the b'jesus out of me

I had the same thing with the digital, flashed pregnant straight away and then went away a a wee egg timer appeared, i then had to wait the time limit to find out for sure.

Only one baby and I was 4 weeks! Second pregnancy though, maybe that makes a difference?

Congrats though!

When I got a postive it showed up before I'd even put the test down!

It was 4 days after my period due and dates were pretty much right for what I thought.
