I hope I've posted this in the right place. Apologies if not  :)

I'm 39 years old and have been told we need ICSI because of DH's poor swimmers. All my tests came back as fine apart from a borderline under-active thyroid. I starting taking 50mg levothyroxium for a week now.

My cycle is usually 25-27 days but going to 28 days is not unknown.

I'm now on Day 29. Since Sunday I've had the usual signs that AF is on her way, tender boobs and period pain discomfort. But as yet no AF.

This morning I did a cheapie pregnancy test (came free with pre-seed on ebay!)

The negative strip came up straight away but about 30 seconds-1 minute later the positive strip came up. The colour was not as strong though.

I did another one and same thing happened again.

I'm now sat here puzzled. Is it a postive result? Could the result be true? Would the levothroxium has given a false positive? Should I take a better quality pregnancy tester? Am I a sad desperate old boot trying to delude myself?

Any advice would be welcomed right now  :)

I could sooooooooooooooooo do with a strong cup of coffee right now but I daren't.....just in case!  ^pray^

As long as you've read the result within the time stated on the pack it sounds like a BFP to me! The test strip usually comes up first & then the other line develops over 30sec-2 mins!

I'm really unsure about this. I'm trying not to get my hopes up I guess.

Is it normal to have the signs of AF if you are pregnant?

My boobs are tender and swollen and I feel as though AF is on her way because I keep having period pain, it's more of a mild discomfort rather than pain, since Sunday.

I keep knicker-checking  ;D

Hi

I take the same medication for my thyroid and can reassure you after a few packs of pregnancy tests last weekend it does not give you a positive result  ;D but I was told by sorting my thyroid it would improve my chances of getting pregnant,

So congratulations on your pregnancy!!!!

Hun, you'd better believe it - YOU ARE PREGNANT!!!!

I had AF pain for a few weeks before my BFP - I didn't think it would happen for us without IVF.

Sounds like a BFP to me too!

Thank you ladies!  ^hugme^ to you all.

Well, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :eek: :eek: :eek:

I need to test again because I don't want to rely on the results of a pregnancy test that was an Ebay freebie!  ;D

Can anyone recommend a reliable one?

Clearblue digital says......... PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm in serious shock.

I had totally resigned myself to never getting pregnant naturally and was looking forward to starting IVF/ICSI.

I want to thank all you lovely ladies for your help, advice and support today.

Big hugs to all of you  ^hugme^

Husband and I keep picking up the Clearblue stick and re-reading the word "pregnant" over and over again  ;D

Silly, but we've taken a photgraph of it LOL!  ;D

^reiki^ and  ^fairydust^ to all that need it

Love, Kitty xxxxx
