Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Im new to this forum. I'm not sure if lets of people have discussed this before so appologise if Im going over old ground.
Today is the 11th. I last had a period on the 15th of last month and my periods though having been long cycles for a while after coming off contraception have in the last 6 months settled into a regular mid month pattern.
My husband and I both work away from home so we dont get much time to spend together on baby making. So I know the exact date of sex since my last period was on the 27th. Since the beginning of this month I have had aching breasts. They have become particularly painfull in the last 48 hours.
Today I took a test and got a very faint line. I couldnt find anywhere on the box what sensitivity level it is so Im not sure what it means.
I dont know whether to mention it to my husband or stay quiet till my period is due in a few days and take another test. I was going to ask my sister but dont want my husband not to be the first to know if it is positive. So now Im asking strangers...
What are your thoughts please?

I really hope so. Should I talk to my husband or wait till Ive done another in a few days?
I dont want to get his hopes up and then it be a what do they call it? chemical preg?

Perki, I was due last friday, I tested both tuesday and wednesday, and had v v v faint poss on them. So I left it till fri morn, and the line was stronger but I wanted to be sure so bought a clearblue and it said pregnant 2-3 weeks, which my doc says it means im 4 weeks pregnant (they go from the date of your last period).
And I got to say your line is darker then my 1st 2 tests!!
Obviously no-one can predict if its going to be a chem preg, but that line does suggest you are pregnant!!! Congertulations!! x x
That looks like a positive to me too! congratulations Perki... maybe do a digital one in a few days, to be 100% sure xx

So I did another test this morning. Second one from the boots packet.
Pretty much same result. But all morning I've felt queasy and had an upset tummy - maybe thats the nerves more than anything else.
I wanted to talk to my husband last night but he's working 9am till 10pm all this week so finding the right time is hard. When he got in he was exhausted so I didnt want to have the maybe we are maybe were not conversation then. I definitely need to get the digital test today. Then I'll know for sure and if its a yes I can sit him down and show him when he gets in. Although if I wait to do the test in the morning that'll be another day to wait! Who knew this could be so complicated!!!
