When to do bloodtest
My period is due tomorrow or Thursday (I vary between having a 26 and 27 day cycle). I did pregnancy test 30 minutes ago and got a faint positive. Must I do another one tomorrow and wait for a darker line and then go for the bloodtest, or must I go today? I am scared the count is still to low and then I must anyway go for another one a few days later? Any suggestions? I am so happy, but also scared that it is not for real. We are trying for our second child and have been trying since December.

If the urine test is positive, the blood test will be accurate at this stage.
