Too early! hCG levels fluctuate above and below the test cut-off. Wait until the weekend and the line will be stronger. Actually, its better to start testing a week after a missed AF since with early pregnancy loss you can get a positive before a period and a negative after. Good luck!

Thanks Grandpa Viv......... you really are a lifesaver on this site.... dunno what we'd do without you!!! Im gonna try and relax now and wait till weekend AT LEAST!!! ha ha!!! At least i know that the positive may actually have been a positive and my hCG levels may have just been high at that moment, and when ive tested since they may have been lower!!! Thanks again!!

 

I wouldn't wait that long - May 17

If your AF is due in 2 days, the HCG levels in an early test, would normally be high enough to be detected at this point. Levels double every 2 days. I would test tomorrow or the day your AF was due, because the line should definitely be there by then. I've never heard of fluctuating levels like that, and they don't say anything about that on the packets. If you wait til the w/end, you will be hoping for several more days. I'd test before that, because personally I think that the negative after the positve is not the best sign. And 'the line will be stronger' a__sumption is crushing, if it then isn't. So, if that was me, I'd not wait too long because I would really want to know. Here's to hoping Grandpa Viv was right...
