I did a pregnancy test today with a test that tells 6 days before missed period and I saw a faint but visible second line!

My husband & I had unprotected sex August 27-31 (sometimes twice a day.) I was ovulating during this time. We are in our early 20's and very healthy. I have noticed severe breast tenderness. I also have had some minor cramping. A few days ago morning I picked up coffee and the smell made me feel sick and I had no desire to drink it. I've read that some women just "know" that they are pregnant. My next expected period is Sept. 14 or 15.

Could it be a false positive? What were your experiences?

It is almost impossible to have a false positive and more common to have a false negative. So, congratulations! Maybe take another test after your missed period. Even if you do bleed, it could also be misinterpreted as period when it could be normal early pregnancy bleeding. I have had 4 babies and plenty of pregnancy tests and they have all been accurate. Now they have a new test that can also predict how many weeks along you may be.

I had six early faint line tests, then I waited until several days after my missed period and took another one.  The line was darker than the control line.  You sound pregnant to me! 

Mom to two boys, ages 8 and 11, and one blessing due May 8th.

It sounds like you're expecting!! Congratulations! Breast tenderness has been the number one clear sign for me with both of my pregnancies.
