About 25-30% of pregnant women experience some type of spotting or bleeding in early pregnancy. Many women who have this light bleeding go on to have normal pregnancies and healthy babies. Be sure to share with your doctor sny of these symptoms.

However, if your bleeding gets heavier and is accompanied by painful cramping, back pain or stabbing pains, seek medical attention right away.

Doctors can estimate, but not down to the exact date. After a positive pregnancy test, doctors use the first day of the last period (LMP) and ultrasound measurements to gauge the gestational age of a baby and estimate when the baby was conceived. Ultrasounds can be off up to 5-7 days in early pregnancy and up to a couple weeks off if the first ultrasounds are done later in pregnancy. Due dates are not an accurate tool for determining conception since they also are only an estimations date (only 5% of women give birth on their due dates).

A negative result could mean a few things: you are not pregnant, you took the test too early, or something went wrong with the test. Pregnancy tests vary in sensitivity to the hormone hCG, and your body may not have had enough time to produce enough hCG hormones to show up on the test.
