Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

You had your periods on 24th of December 2009 and it has just been 3-4 days over due. Two digital tests have come positive and a third urine test with a faint positive line. In all probability you are pregnant.

However there can be false positive results too. Wait for the test report from the lab. Wait for another week and repeat the test. If it is still inconclusive, then a trans-vaginal ultrasound will have to be done at 8-9 weeks to see heart activity.

Please discuss this with your gynecologist and go as per their advice. Hope this helps. Take care!
