expired pg test?

Anyone know whether the dates on pregnancy tests mean don't use it/not accurate after that date? I'm late, and I had a test left over from the last time I needed one (2 1/2 yrs ago). I figured I'd use it, but then it came up positive. It isn't terrible if I'm pregnant. (DH wasn't ready, and I was.) It'd just be for my own mind for the next 24 hrs until I can test again. Thanks!

I wouldn't think it would turn positive if it was bad. I'd say definitely get another test! Did it turn up right away? Test again!

Got another test. Looks like I'm definitely pregnant. It's one thing to look at babies and think "I want another one." It's entirely different when it's a reality.

I think I got a little too confident in my NFP abilities. Wish I could have someone look at this month's chart and tell me when I got pregnant!

Re: expired pg test?

congrats mama. it will all work out in the end. I recall being shocked with my 3rd baby. it changed so many plans I had lined up and I was pretty upset. then it just was what it was and I loved it.

i just reread and it said you wanted a baby. awesome!
