Some basics: The chemicals which turn pregnancy test positive are made by the embryonic mass of cells attached inside the womb. It makes increasing amounts of such chemicals the longer it is there if it remains healthy. It sounds as if you may have initially been early into a pregnancy that shed. (As many as 1/3 do very early). It could be a false positive early test. Some women skip a cycle occasionally.
