    I would ask a different doc and start prenatals if you haven't already. Good luck!

    No such thing as a false positive!

    Actually there are. If you are taking any kind of medicine with progesterone in it it can cause a faint false positive. I've had it happen before. Some pregnancy tests test for hcg and progesterone to provide a positive earlier than the date of your missed period. Testing for both makes them "more sensitive"

    some tests are faulty. I have had one. I was ticked off.

    It's not likely however, so, congrats!

    Find a new dr and get prenatals at Walmart or cvs and start taking them!
