Could I be pregnant?

I am new to this board. Seems like a fun place, real nice ladies. My husband and I are TTC #1. No previous pregnancies (to my knowledge). I stumbled across you last week then have been out of town and now I have a question!
DH (one of only about 5 abreviations I have figured out so far!!) and I were married last September and have been ttc since, (on account of my age!) I will be 41 this week! Though we were trying, we had not tried anything in particular. Until last month when I saw an article in Lifetime magazine on 'How to get pregnant fast' ~ It worked! Well.. it might have worked! My period is two weeks late. I took a home pregnancy test last night and the result was positive. I had a pre-conception check-up scheduled for the end of this week. I called the Dr's office and she suggested I do another test today, then call them tomorrow re the appointment.
However, today I got my period. I have severe stomach cramps with it too. I still did the 2nd test and that also shows up as positive. So I am not really sure now! How accurate are those tests anyway?! Could I still have a normal (or heavier than normal period?) I am in agony but afraid to take anything, normally I would take a Beecham's Powder, which is probably a similar thing to your BC powders.
Am I or aren't I? I am pinning my hopes on those tests, but DH refuses to now I have my period.
