: Ok, I'm 4 days late and i'm never late, i can time it down to the hour usually (i'm on the pill) and so i took a home pregnancy test yesterday and it said that i should wait between 1 and 10 minutes. I waited 1 and half minutes, checked it and i didn't see a line so i thought i wasn't pg but then i came back later (maybe an hour) and it was reading positive. I'm going to retest but i've heard that you should wait 8-10 days to get accurate results but in the mean time, i'm dying here. I'm also getting mild cramps (for about 4 days now) but i haven't gotten my period. Just curious on anyone who i might have any ideas to help me make it till next tuesday.
: thanks, Jill
Anytime you check an HPT after the alloted time, it will look positive..The colors on the stick bleed after a certain amount of minutes, which is why they want you to check it within the time frame that they give you.
I would try another one tomorrow (just to be sure) and follow the directions completely. Be sure to check the results within the time it tells you to...then throw it away.
