you are much more likely to receive a false negative than to receive a false positive.

my dr told me that a preg test can't be false pos because it measures a hormone that is not in your system unless you are pregnant.i got this info when i had a pos test at home then went the next week for the blood test and it was neg....i had miscarried in between the two tests (but didn't bleed until after i got the results of my blood test).

I dont think that they are wrong if you have done 3 and all of them are postive. Congrats to you =)

Congratulations!!!!!! I would tend to believe that you are pregnant :o) I ,too, did 3 home pregnancy tests. They were all positive and I was barely 4 weeks along.

unlikely they are wrong, but don't stress either way! It will happen when it is meant to be :) If you worry about it, that is not good for you or the baby (if there is one). If you are not pregnant now, just have fun practicing for the real thing! :) Best wishes :p

I'm having the same fear! I took 4, each one with a pinker line that the previous, but I had a miscarriage last year and am terrified! I'm not having any morning sickness either (which I did BIG TIME with my daughter) so either I am super blessed with no sickness, or........I totally understand the fear you have/had. But congratulations on your new blessing!!!

Bless your heart! I can FEEL your excitement all the way over here! Congratulations!
I'm so jealous...I wanna new baby too!
I remember when my husband and I found the first test was a positive...we went back to town and bought one of EVERY brand of test on the shelf. I peed on em all and squealed with delight over each positive! It was such a wonderful time!
Again, congratulations!

the test is correct eairly congrats. you would never get a test to tell u possitive and you are not pregnant, it will more likely tell you negative and you are.

They are 99% accurate / the odds of all three of them being wrong are pretty slim.

False positives almost never occur. You are totally pregnant!
