I expected my period last night. It's pretty spot on, so if it doesn't start today then I'll officially be late. But I had to take a test. I just kind of had a "feeling" this month. That, and my SO has been rambling on about babies a LOT. I'm one for signs, and a man who never talks about kids, like ever, and who hasn't shut up about future children this month... I don't know.
This was taken exactly five minutes after I pee'd on the stick.
Well the way the date pregnancy is from your LMP (until they do a dating scan) so technically the day your period is late they consider you 4 weeks preggo.... BUT they assume that you ovulated on day 14, but if you are like me you might have ovulated earlier, or what I suspect may be the case here you may have ovulated later. For sake of argument if you have a 28 day cycle and ovulated on day 18 it generally takes 6-8 days for the egg to implant and then another 48-72 hours to even get enough hormone level to register a faint line, so as I said it may very well be that you are only in early pregnancy.
Unfortunately it may also be that you are losing the pregnancy (I read somewhere that 1 out of every 10 periods is a pregnancy that didn't take for whatever reason). I don't like to mention such things but they do happen. or perhaps it is just a false positive, though rare they do happen. I would recommend that if your period has not arrived within the next 48 hours that you test again.
