how early?

I just took a home pregnancy test and it came out positive. I'm only 5 days late. Is this too soon? Is there such thing as a "false positive"? Also, I carry large buckets of ice at my job, when do you worry about carrying things that are too heavy?

Congrats! Your pregnant!  There is no such thing as a false positive.  The test looks for the hcg hormone.  You only have that hormone when you are pregnant and only then.

If you mean you are only five days after when you expected your period, don't worry.  Pregnancy tests are totally reliable at that point.
