Just after some advice as to what to what to do next... My period was due today. Leading up to today i have had all the normal symptoms - sore boobs, cramping, bloating etc. But no af today! I have taken a pregnosis clear test and a line (kind of faint) did come up. I did one of these tests 3 days ago and nothing. So what next? Should I take another one in a few days? Tomorrow? Or just book a drs appt?

Congratulations! If you are the patient type then sure wait a few days and test again but otherwise go make an appt with your dr and get a bt to confirm. i assume you are already taking pregnancy vitamins - if not get started today!
Best of luck!

I myself then do about another 2-3 HPT in 24 hours and then make a doctors appointment for all my bloods and to be confirmed again just so I believe it.
What you do is up to you as really you could just sit and do nothing for the next few weeks - however if your wanting to go private then you need to at least book your OB ASAP and see the GP for the referral. As for the pregnancy really nothing needs doing until 12 weeks as bloods can be taken then easily and have your NT scan also.
