Is it possible to get a false positive on a Clearblue digital test?

5+ weeks means you are literally 3+ weeks pregnant.  The first 2 weeks are free 🙂  So you got pregnant about 3-4 weeks ago when you ovulated.  Congratulations!

Hope this helps!

False positives are incredibly rare so you are pregnant! Now it says 5 weeks because pregnancies are dated with the life of the egg that was fertilized. Technically you probably only ovulated three weeks ago but you usually add two weeks to that to get your true gestational age. With your LMP (last menstrual period) at 5 weeks ago, this seems to be fairly accurate!

@Lemon-Squeezy:  Thank you! It honestly took a good 7-8 weeks to kind of sink in from when we found out (Aug 4).  By our 13 week u/s it was real but still not.  And today, after our 18w u/s, I am beyond excited and feel pregnant.  Give yourself some time to slowly process it, once it becomes real in your mind, it’s not as foreign or daunting!

@Lemon-Squeezy:  I’m still whirling from my BFP yesterday so I know you are! 😀 I DEFINITELY wasn’t expecting it either, I only took the test to shut that little voice in the back of my head up! Now I’m so glad I did, I bet you are as well!!

@Lemon-Squeezy:  It did! It says 2-3 weeks! I took one again this morning with my FMU and still said 2-3! We’re guessing I’m around 4 though… which makes me anxious that it doesn’t say 3+ on the test. I’m going Monday to the doctor! I’m so glad you listened to yourself and took advice!!!
