    Default Newbie :-)

    Hello ladies!
    I have just found out that I may be pregnant. I have done 4 home tests and they all came up positive. I went to the doctors on Friday and I had a blood test. Im still waiting for the results which is very frustrating as we need to make important decisions about jobs and future etc. Asap! Lol. It wasn't planned that I get pregnant yet so we still can't believe it. We are very happy all the same. :-)
    Can anyone help me by telling me how accurate the home tests are and if I could safely say I was pregnant without seeing the results of the blood test?

    Thanks heaps!

    If you've done 4 and they're all positive then I'd say you're pregnant they're pretty reliable, and some are even more sensitive than blood tests.

    Congratulations!!! and welcome x

    home tests are usually fairly accurate.

    The chances of 4 tests all being false posatives is pretty low.

    Congratulations !!!

    Thank you ladies! I'm still in shock and have no idea where to start so will probably be asking a lot of annoying questions. Lol.

    The home tests are measuring the same hormone as the blood tests, so a positive home test is really of a similar reliability as a positive blood test.
