Hi,

I did a pregnancy test today just to follow up on a first one I did about three weeks ago when my period showed up very light and very unlike me.

In the past two weeks, my breasts have been sore and I've been cramping at times as if I'm about to start a period but it's way too early to start another one.

This test was negative as well however, my hands were shaking so badly that I'm fairly sure I peed over more than just the damn absorbent tip because I saw some of the liquid appear to pass into the actual result window (ugh, it figures I can't even take a damn pregnancy test correctly).

I put the cap back on and almost immediately it began showing a negative result (although the box said the result should take two minutes).

Should I trust this or did I mess the stupid test up? Although the positive window has a light blue hue to it, there is a clearly define dark blue line in the negative result window.


Thanks for any help you can provide this neurotic soul.

I would trust it. If you didn't get enough urine on the absorbant part of the stick, you wouldn't have got the control (negative) line either.

However, if you really do not trust the result, you can take another test. Pee into a container and dip the stick into the urine. Most pregnancy tests that you can pee on can also be dipped into urine (read the instructions -- it should say).

Thanks!

I've been cramping all morning and now I'm bleeding. It feels like my normal period but if I had "one" nearly three weeks ago, I don't understand what's going on.

The one that happened nearly three weeks ago was very light. It was rust colored blood and for about one day it produced some some very odd clotting. It only lasted 3-4 days total...

It showed up around the time I was "expecting" albeit 2-3 days late.

Is this just some fluke hormonal thing?
I did have unprotected sex (sans ejaculation) maybe two weeks prior to the light period.

Is it possible the first period was a miscarriage? Or that this one is?

I'm sorry, I don't mean to be so neurotic but this hasn't happened to me before. My Mom keeps telling me that weird things happen once and awhile but I guess I'd like to hear it from someone other than her, especially since I appear to be having my period again [Razz]
