    After 2 negative clearblues, and a further weak positive on rapid self test (after 10 mins), I telephoned the pregnancy help line for rapidself test, and was told they all go positive after 15 minutes.....GREAT! I just wasted all that money buying tests because they didn't write that on the info leaflet....I feel really disappointed as i was sure i was pregnant (my nipples are incredibly sore) ho hum :cry:

    Hi

    I bought several pregnancy tests. AF was due on the 17 May and i didnt get a faint positive until 24 May. I had incredibly sore breasts and slight sickness. Hope this helps.

    Hi Davina,

    just a query.When you say sore breasts what exactly do you mean-pains all the time or only on any kind of contact.my boobs have been aching for the past 2 days at the slightest touch.I am just 5 days past ovulation.

    Can PG signs show up this early?

    Hi honey

    They hurt when they came into contact with anything. Especially the nipple area. I am rather large chested so that might be why they hurt at the slightest contact. but that was the strongest indication to be pregnant that i had at first. I have never suffered with tender breasts before for any reason other than being pregnant.

    keeping it all crossed for you.

    Thanx ladies,

    U all are such a darling and so helpful.
    Actually i was very confused as i didnt expect to get any sings this early.I'll have to wait for atleast 1 more week to do any tests as my AF is due on 24th.

    Hi

    Just you make sure you let us know. Fingers crossed for a positive. Sounds good though.

    Hi, I posted my 'saga' on sunday...mini-pill, faint positive.... I had a light period on may 28th but since the i have had nipples that feel like they have been scrubbed with brillo-pads! Also feel very tearful, and have had abdominal discomfort. I was so sure i was pregnant despite the unlikeliness of pregnancy (one month on mini-pill, breastfeeding 16m old)... i would really like another baby but can't stand my painful periods thus the mini-pill, also not sure i can conceive whilst feeding (reg periods since 4 months post delivery).
    Has anyone else had a false positive? Or got a faint positive after 10-15 mins?

    I didn't think you could get false positives until now! It seems false positives are unlikely within the time limit but not after that....the woman on the 'rapidtest' helpline said their tests tend to give a 2nd (positive) line after about 15 minutes; they really should say that on the leaflet shouldn't they?

    My boobs are still huge and tender so i must be extra 'hormonal' this month :lol:
    Nat, I don't think lack of sore boobs indicates no pregnancy, as all women have different symptoms, some women sail through early pregnancy with no symptoms and are as pregnant as the pucking ones with huge sore boobs!! :wink:

    in response to that question about how quickly you feel sypmtoms. I started feeling very different just a week after I ovulated. I guessed straight away that I was pregnant, but my poor husband didn't really believe me.

    The first sign was the much higher than normal temperatures and then the implantation spotting and then all hell broke loose with my symptoms, they just kept on coming.

    I only really did the test for the hubby really, I was utterly convinced that I was pg, straight away.

    :shock: to say we went into a state of shock was a bit of an understatement.

    Well

    I got the spotting about 6 or 7 days after ovulation, and then I got sore nipples and nausea when I tried blow drying my hair, the next day, very wierd.

    then about 10 days after ovulation i went to bed in the afternoon because i felt so tired and weepy. unusual for me and luckily it was a sunday. this has now become my sunday afternoon treat. :)

    on day 11 after ovulation, i decided it was time to do the test as my boobs were much more sore than normal, I had felt nauseous in the car on the way to work and my period is normally on time and wasn't.

    my temperatures were also through the roof. 37.3 instead of 35.9.

    hope this helps.
