I am due on May 2nd. I ovluated on April 18th. I tested this morning and got a faint positive. Should I see a Doctor now or should I wait until I get a very clear positive?

The faint positive will darken up in the next few days. You can start with prenatal vitamins anytime soon. It would probably be a good idea to wait until you are sure you have missed a normal period before calling for a checkup. The average first visit to the doctor is around the time of the second missed period. Congratulations and good luck!

I would go now. Because you are definitely pregnant, and if you delay and your doc needs to refer you to a specialist for some reason, you just prolong the wait until you get to see the specialist.

Thank you Grandpa Viv and Nica for your suggestions. Now I am more confused one of you have suggested to wait for couple more weeks, another suggested to go to the doctor right away. Please suggest what should I be doing.

Reddy: My doctor would not see me until I was at least 12 wks so your Dr. might have a similar rule. I would wait until you miss your period and call and tell them that you missed and tested positive! Good luck!

My Dr. Made me wait until 10 weeks. Most won't see you untill then.

Reddy, you can wait to call the doctor. I just got a faint BFP on April 24th and then tested again on April 28th and it as as clear as day. I called the doctors office on the 29th - they just wanted a blood test to confirm how far along I am - that's it until 8/9th week. According to my cycles I am 5 weeks pregnant so I won't be going to see a doctor until the 8th week which is May 22nd for a checkup and then on May 29th for an internal ultrasound which I guess is something they do not at the 9th week and then I don't see the doctor again for a while. I asked about prenatal and they said they won't give me those until my 8 week appt. I don't agree with that at all - I started taking over the counter vitamins with high folic acid and eating and drinking all that I can with vitamins and iron and folic acid. Good luck and don't stress about the doctor thing yet. You have time.
