Pregnant?
We are trying to have our 3rd baby and I stopped taking the pill in January after many years and have had regular periods since then. I missed my period this month, and I'm about a week late and did a HPT this morning and it was positive. Is this test reliable enough to confirm that I am pregnant? Please advise.

A blood test is not really necessary in your circumstances.
