Digital Weeks Estimator test

I used a digital weeks estimator pregnancy test on the day my period was due and it said "1-2 weeks." I did it again now that I'm 5 weeks, it said 2-3 weeks. Since I'm 5 weeks 3 days, should it still be at the 2-3 week or should it have moved up to the 3+ weeks?

Thanks for your message, Starlakim.  The Weeks Estimator estimates weeks since ovulation and needs to be performed with the first urine of the day.  The result is determined by the level of hCG in your urine.  The level of hCG may vary from woman to woman and therefore the Weeks Estimator may sometimes give misleading results.  Since you've got a positive result we recommend that you see your Doctor to discuss your next steps!  Wishing you all the best!
