Thanks for writing to us.

Early pregnancy test is less significant. As your period is due on 10th April, you should repeat the home pregnancy test again after missed period. One blood test for beta-HCG level is required to confirm the same after 7 days.

About 95% accurate result is achieved around period due date or missed period. Pregnancy strip test gives 96-99% positive result 7 days after missed period.

Above clinical features are resembled with early pregnancy signs but you need to confirm it. Other possible reasons are stress/ emotional upset/ imagination or thinking of some kind of fact etc.

Take healthy diet and drink more water. Eat fresh vegetables & fruits. You can consult with your gynecologist following test report.

Hope, this information is quite helpful to you. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
