Repeat preg test: Sometimes, there are false positives and false negatives that can happen with any test. I recommend that you repeat the home pregnancy test to see if it returns as positive or negative. Repeat positive will confirm your pregnant and you can see your ob gyn for further care best wishes Dr M

The 16th would: have been one day delayed ? even 4 days delayed isn't very delayed. The more sensitive blood tests are your best bet at earliest stages.
