liladams - July 2

I am now 10days late and about 5days ago I took an equate I only waited a Min and got a neg so I left. when I came back an hour later it was pos. so I figured it probablly was wrong now but the + was very much there it wasnt faint. So i retested a couple times since then and got neg. well today I took one from kmart brand and it was neg however the test had a crack in it like it had been thrown around so i discarded it. any way. My husband and I have been trying for 4 months now to concieve and this is the first time Ive been late! I even have morning sickness and gas. well has this ever happened to anyone. I have my 1st doctors visit in a week and I am very very scared I hope I am! well any suggestions or stories?? please someone give me some advice!

I am only 3 days late today, but ever since last Weds I've been taking Kmart tests and getting positive results. Within the time frame even. But....I can't get a positive result on any other brand of test! I've been testing every day and nothing. I wish I could tell you what's going on, but I don't really know myself. I have heard that Equate is not prone to false +'s so that's a good thing. Did the pos have color to it? Was it an evap? Generally you shouldn't read a test after the time limit in the instructions, however, if I were you I'd call the toll free number on the side of the box and speak to them about this. Good Luck!!

thanks for the response. I found out that the average % that home test measure is 300 miu every test is diff. it could be2 of the same test but they will both measure diff. I also found out that if you wait untill you miss the second period due. all the tests should come up positive. so I have a doctors appt on the 13th and Im going to see what he says and do a blood test and if its neg through that I will wait untill after the next missed period and take a home ept. This is just some stuff I have learned from websites and consumer reports. Its a little bit of good information I thought Id pa__s along so gl. and thanks abunch!

Hey thanks a lot for letting me know! I really appreciate it. We seem to be in the same boat right now. I'm wishing you the best of luck.
