How likely am I pregnant?

DH and I have two children. We were going to try for a third a few years ago but things changed and we didn’t proceed.
Fast forward to now.... Im late for my period (I think, I’m not super regular and don’t always track), sore breast for last two weeks (feel like rocks and sore to sleep) and nausea last two days that I actually thought I had gastro today.
I’ve taken a pregnancy test this afternoon and instantly came up with a super dark blue positive line. I’m fairly dehydrated at the moment- so you think this could be impacting the results and giving a false positive?

You are pregnant. You can’t get a positive without the hormone being present, and the hormone means you are pregnant.

The pregnancy test detects the presence of a pregnancy hormone. So if it comes up positive that is because the hormone is present in your urine. Being dehydrated or extra hydrated has nothing to do with the test.
Edited to take out comment that was unnecessarily mean. Sorry OP. I do hope you’re okay!!

You are definitely pregnant. Being dehydrated doesn’t produce hcg. congratulations.

Same way some adult women apparently don’t know how to be tactful!
How do adult women not know this!!
Hope you’re ok OP

Thanks for your replies. I took another test- positive 3+ weeks since conception. Dh and I are surprised but happy for number 3. Will need to organise a go appointment to arrange a scan for dates as I’m not sure how far along I am.
