Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It is rare, but yes you can get a false positive from a home pregnancy test.  I would say if you want to be certain go to a clinic or your gynecologist office and get a test done there.  Then you will be certain.
YES! I am 13 weeks now and I didn't have a possitive test until I was 6 weeks! I took 3 from the store and all were negative and I was even in the hospital at about 5 weeks and they even got a negative pregnancy test. A week later I saw my little peanut on the ultrasound.
nothing is certain! Go to a doctor and see what they say...i took 12 pregnancy tests and almost all of them showed up negative...then i went to a dr. because i still hadnt started and found out i was 8 weeks pregnant!
