I took two pregnancy tests, both came up with an error, does this mean I'm pregnant?

    Positive means you are pregnant, however, here are some symptoms of pregnancy, check them and then see your doctor

    Tender, swollen breasts

    One of the early signs of pregnancy is sensitive, sore breasts caused by increasing levels of hormones. The soreness may feel like an exaggerated version of how your breasts feel before your period. Your discomfort should diminish significantly after the first trimester, as your body adjusts to the hormonal changes.

    Fatigue

    Feeling tired all of a sudden? No, make that exhausted. No one knows for sure what causes early pregnancy fatigue, but it's possible that rapidly increasing levels of the hormone progesterone are contributing to your sleepiness.

    You should start to feel more energetic once you hit your second trimester, although fatigue usually returns late in pregnancy when you're carrying around a lot more weight and some of the common discomforts of pregnancy make it more difficult to get a good night's sleep

    Nausea or vomiting

    If you're like most women, morning sickness won't hit until about a month after conception. (A lucky few escape it altogether.) But some women do start to feel queasy a bit earlier. And not just in the morning, either — pregnancy-related nausea and vomiting can be a problem morning, noon, or night.

    About half of women with nausea feel complete relief by the beginning of the second trimester. For most others it takes another month or so for the queasiness to ease up.

    Increased sensitivity to odors

    If you're newly pregnant, it's not uncommon to feel repelled by the smell of a bologna sandwich or cup of coffee and for certain aromas to trigger your gag reflex. Though no one knows for sure, this may be a side effect of rapidly increasing amounts of estrogen in your system. You may also find that certain foods you used to enjoy are suddenly completely repulsive to you.

    Abdominal bloating

    Hormonal changes in early pregnancy may leave you feeling bloated, similar to the feeling some women have just before their period arrives. That's why your clothes may feel snugger than usual at the waistline, even early on when your uterus is still quite small.

    Frequent urination

    Shortly after you become pregnant, you may find yourself hurrying to the bathroom all the time. Why? Mostly because during pregnancy the amount of blood and other fluids in your body increases, which leads to extra fluid being processed by your kidneys and ending up in your bladder.

    This symptom may start as early as six weeks into your first trimester and continue or worsen as your pregnancy progresses and your growing baby exerts more pressure on your bladder.

    A missed period

    If you're usually pretty regular and your period doesn't arrive on time, you'll probably take a pregnancy test long before you notice any of the above symptoms. But if you're not regular or you're not keeping track of your cycle, nausea and breast tenderness and extra trips to the bathroom may signal pregnancy before you realize you didn't get your period.

    Your basal body temperature stays high

    If you've been charting your basal body temperature and you see that your temperature has stayed elevated for 18 days in a row, you're probably pregnant

    Good luck.

    No, it means you're not taking them right.

    Go buy a different brand. Take the test early in the morning w/ your first pee of the day. Hold it in your urine stream or pee in a cup & dip the stick in the cup for at least 5 seconds. Set the test on a flat surface for 5 mins, then check the results.

  • You are either doing them wrong, or it's just inconclusive. Are you doing them before a missed period? Are you spilling too much urine on the stick? I'd say go to a doctor and get checked out. That's the only way to be 100% sure, and if you are, they will give you information on what you need to do to have a healthy pregnancy.

    either you had a bad test or you are not doing it right. it has to lay flat on a surface the whole time it developes. if it still comes up as an error then go to the hospital and have one done.

    Not necessarily. It means that not enough urine got onto the stick or that your hGC levels were inconclusive. You'll have to get a different brand of test and/or go to planned parenthood and they'll test you (costs the same as a home preg. test)

    No it means you somehow either got bad tests or you screwed them up.. You need to either get another and try again or call your doctor.
