EPT Or Clear Blue Digital?

Ok, ladies. I know many of you don't like "am I pregnant" questions, but I need your opinion about tests. We have been TTC for a few months, and today I took a First Response and got a faint positive. I have read that there's really no such thing as a false positive, so I think it probably counts, but I took the test in the middle of the afternoon because I am so excited and couldn't wait any longer! My hubby is not so sure it means a positive, so we went out and bought Clear Blue digital and EPT early result tests. I am going to take...

2 Negative Pregnancy Test, but Blood Test Positive.

Hello all ~ I have not had a period since August 10th. I have taken 2 HPT and both came back negative. (2 weeks ago and then 3 weeks ago) On Monday Iwent to the Dr. and had a blood test done.

To Find Out the Gender or Not?

I am expecting baby #3 in September. We need to decide whether to find out the gender at our ultrasound in 8 weeks. We didn't find out with either of our other 2. One boy, one girl so far! Since I have one of each already, I don't need to find out in order to prepare the nursery or buy items. We already have everything we need for either gender. The nursery is gender neutral and most of my 0-3 items are also gender neutral. We do have several items from the previous kids that are blue or pink so I am not worried about needing to shop...

Confused on Ovulation

My first child was a surprise and looking back now I dont remember the dates of everything to see when it was that I got pregnant in relation to having my period and missing my period. We are now in the process of actually planning the next child and I'm hoping to get pregnant right about now. Can someone who has "planned" there pregnancy fill me in on ovulation. Specifically, is it two weeks after your period STARTED or ENDED? My period is just about over so do I have one more week or two weeks starting now? Thanks! S.
