Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. Not sure of the first day if my last period, but i do know it was around July 15th. Last Sunday I went ahead and took a test and it showed a faint positive line. I took another later that day with Clear Blue and it said Pregnant (1-2) We both got really excited! I scheduled a doctors apt but cant get in until Sept 29th. So, to confirm it I went to a free Clinic and their test showed negative. On my way to the clinic I began cramping, and was slightly bleeding when I took the test at the clinic. About an hour later I took another at home test which showed a faint positive line. No one can tell me anything. I need help and or advise. I have another appointment scheduled with the clinic next Tuesday, but I would love to get a yes or no answer. Starting to upset me and bring me down with the yes you are, no your not pregnant roller coaster I am currently on.
Any advise/help would be greatly appreciated!

If you got a positive chances are you are pregmant, as you cant really get false positives.
Christine jones - could the test they used at the clinic have been less sensituve than your ones? The bleeding must be worrying for you but it can happen in pregnancy. If you're still getting positives, even after the bleeding, then I would relax if you can (as stress isnt good) and wait for your appointment on Tuesday.
Popping mad - yes clear blue digitals are less sensitive and may take longer to show a positive.
Hope that puts both your minds at rest a little bit x

Popping mad- I am sorry you are in the same situation. If you feel anything like I do right now. It sucks! I will continue to post my results on here. Hope everything turns out the way you want it. The crazy thing is, I am kinda on my period now. But, I took another test this morning and it showed positive again.
MrsU- I hope not being able to get a false positive is correct. I never thought about the test being less sensitive as the ones i am taking. That may be why it showed negative.
Have either of you heard of blood affecting the tests? Only reason I ask is because when I took the test at the clinic, I had just started bleeding, so I had no tampon in. That's when the test showed negative. When I took the test an hour after the clinic and this morning I had one in and it showed positive. I tried looking it up, but no luck and any useful information.
Thank you guys for the support! It means the world to me that there are people willing to help.

If theres even a chance you could be pregnant I wouldnt use a tampon...use a pad. ive never heard of blood affecting it but maybe it could. it might be more likely that your wee was less concentrated at the clinic than the other times you tested or their test was less sensitive.
