Hi ladies, I am new to all this. I have been viewing these forums since we first started trying back in April but have never posted before and am now looking for some advice…

AF is due on Thursday but I have been feeling a bit strange for the last few days so I took a couple of tests yesterday, 5 days early. I got a positive result both times but with the second one the line was fainter although it was definitely still there. I know I should have waited until Thursday to test but I just couldn't wait. I am now worried that AF might still arrive as I have mild period-type pains in my lower stomach and also have pretty sore boobs. Is this normal? I usually get this the day or so before AF arrives but I have now also been reading about chemical pregnancies and I am worrying that this might be happening as they say that these are quite common with the first one. Am I just being totally paranoid?!

Sorry ladies if I should like a total idiot but I just don't know who else to ask. Any advice/info would be much appreciated.

Thanks heaps! x

Thanks for your quick reply. I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I wish I'd just waited until the end of the week to test.

The whole chemical pregnancy thing would never even have entered my head if I hadn't gone trawling the internet looking for info about having a faint positive result. I am probably now making it worse now by stressing out about it. Sad

Good Luck. Faint positive is good sign for hope. Last month I had myself convinced I was preg with all the symptoms but 5 tests came back neg. This month I have been charting and no symptoms. But 5 more days before I can test. No early testing for me this month. Driving myself crazy.

Still no sign of af so I have everything crossed that it stays that way. My boobs are still pretty sore and am still having mild cramps. I am dying to do another test but I am going to try and hold off until Fri - even though it seems so far away!
