will a HPT show a positive when you're 12wks along?

My sister believes she is about 12wks, and we aren't sure if a HPT can detect the hormone if the levels are so high. Can it detect high hcg levels? Or only low levels?

It will show up positive if she's pregnant. There has to be a minimum amount of hormone present to make the tests work, but there is no such thing as too much hormone for the test to work.

If she is pregnant the test will show up positive, it doesn't matter how far along she is...

Oh yeah it'll show.

I had a left over test from when I first tested....and around 12w. I was a huge dork and took it. LOL...I wanted to see how fast the line would show up. (hey why not dang thing probably would have expired before I had the chance to use it again)...
