tests are Barely positive. Really pregnant?

We just started trying after a (clean and very early) MC in late january. Since then my cycle has been regular and calendar monthly, 30-31 days, aroun the 25th. Over a week ago, thought my period was coming early, but the pink spotting never turned to bleeding... took a couple tests that were negative. Now, period is late and two more tests are BARELY positive. I am using 'strong' first of the morning urine, very sensitive test, my regular brand. I am sure it IS positive but not sure if it stuck or what is up, it seems waaay too light, previous pregnancy tested darker earlier in.
Also, I am on thyroid meds (which finally regulated cycle) was on varying hormonal BC for years (but not the last several) and at 39 with no baby yet, but husband and I dearly wanting one now, this is scary. Also, boobs got noticably larger just last week, but I also gained 20 lbs when I stopped exercising after MC, nearly 10 this past month. Have been very depressed and acutely stressed as well. Is it too early to make an ob/gyn appt, to find out if I am (still) pregnant? ...
Sorry for long post!

Hi teambebes

The light spotting sounds like implantation bleeding so you could well be pregnant. HCG levels increase every day so the longer you leave taking a pregnany test the clearer the results. By the sounds of what you are saying the pregnancy test could well be positive. Have you tried using clearblur digital pregnancy tests? These tests are 99% accurate from the day of your missed period and give a clear yes or no response.
Wishing you all the best and fngers crossed you get the response you are looking for.
Please keep us updated Smile

Thanks! And while the tests are definitely positive, and assuming implantation about 10 days ago, my hcg looks even lower than last (no go) pregnancy. Would love a qualitative test (and US) to know what's happening, but don't want to bother dr if they're just gonna tell me to wait it out. I am clueless re protocol here!

am i pregnant?
Hi im having some issues about my metrual. Ever since im having my normal cycles, and i guess im a heavy bleeder my menses lasts up to 6 days or so. Just last June, me and may partner were trying to conceive but then we are dissapointed when my period came (june 28,2012) lasted for 4 days. We look up the calendar for my fertile days to be straight we do it everyday just to be sure. then before he left abroad we had our last intercourse last July 10,2012, after a week or less i had spotting twice then my period came earlier than expected (July 28- 1 day before target date) but it is unussual, i bled lighter than what is used to be. from 3 pads per day befre, now 1 pad a day and not enough to fill the whole pad lasted for 3days (light bleeding). And now it came earlier again 2 days befre the target date. again lighter not enough to fill the pad, but on the second day my period stopped the whole day then i spotted later that night. On the third day i bled again still lighter. third day spotting. my whole 3 days of mens i can say i only used 1 1/2 pad and thats how light i bled this month. IS IT POSSIBLE THAT I MIGHT BE PREGNANT?
NOTE: i took 3 pt last july 2nd week and 3rd week but all came back negative.
