    Maybe hold out a little longer and test again in a week or so? But certainly I believe that false positives are less common than false negs. Hope this means good news for you, Blakesmummy!

    I think you're pregnant

    At 8 dpo you would expect it to be very faint, very...very faint. Implantation only occurs 4-7dpo and then you allow another couple of days at least for the implanted embryo to start producing enough HCG to give you a positive test. It will start off faint and get darker over a week or so.

    Actually I remember testing at 9dpo with my son and got a negative...kept testing because I knew I was pregnant and it took until 11dpo to get a very faint positive.

    Confirm are quite reliable, I think they measure 25 miu.

    Congratulations!

    I have only ever had a positive with the confirm tests when I was pg and definately had no falso +ve's when I wasn't.. My test was pretty faint and I was 12DPO but implanted at 9DPO.. The tests are 25MIU I think... best of luck, not that I think you neeed it..
