Positive Test

Hey all! I'm not pregnant yet that I know of...but I had a question for any of you who have already had children...have you noticed that your pregnancy test shows positive later with 2nd, or 3rd children? With my first i was positive the day of my missed period...my second I was 4 days late before I got a +, and now what could be my third i'm 2 days late and still no +. Just curious. My husband and I have been doing 'natural' birth control since my first child and were successful until we wanted #2, and have just been charting trying to avoid a third, but are also open to a third if it happens. At this point I just want to KNOW! I'd be thrilled for #3 but also know that technically i'm not in the best health for it either....

i don't think it has anything to do with how many kids you've had but more to do with when the implantation happened? i know after implantation the bean starts giving off HCG which is what makes the test positive Smile Good Luck!!!!!

charting was always so easy because I cramp pretty badly the day I ovulate...but this time there was no cramping so I don't know exactly when I ovulated. #2 came late maybe #3 is just as stubborn! grr

My first baby, I was 4 days late when I tested and it hardly showed. My second, I was just a day late and it was faint, but still easy to see. This one I tested 3 days before AF was due and it came up really dark and very clear. So I guess for me, it was the other way.
