Should I take The Test??

Ok so I'm 97% sure that I'm just freaking out from stress and what not, but I don't really have anyone to ask except for you ladies. I'm hoping that I post this and tomorrow it's nothing...but


FI and I have been abstaining since we got engaged. Well 3 weeks ago we slipped and couldn't control ourselves and dtd. I'm very regular with my cycles and I know that I was to be O'ing around that time.


I am now 4 days late...I have no feelings of starting my period, no bloating, no chocolate cravings...the only thing I have kinda been feeling is sore nipples not the sore all over boobies that I usually get.


So is it too early to take a pregnancy test?? I'm just so nervous...1 month from the wedding.


EDIT: I should add that FI and I want to start TTC right after the wedding, so being pregnant now wouldn't be far off of our plan...just a little unexpected.

You can test days before your missed period. I tested positive 3 days before I missed my period and I didn't even use my first morning urine. Since you are 4 days late a home pregnancy test would more than likely show an accurate result.

haha...I wish! I have to wait till I get off work though...


Funny thing is that my sister is getting inducded tonight. How crazy to have one baby being born on the same day I were to find out that I'm preggers.

you should definitely be able to test now if you are 4 days late.  i tested at 1 day late and got a positive result.  good luck to you!  :)

Well aparently I've confused EPT...I'm both. Took the first test...Pregnant. Took the second...Not Pregnant.


Why do home tests only come 2 to a box? They should at least have 3...have these people never heard of the term "best of 3" or "2 out of 3"....come on!!


Now what?


Ok..I'm kinda thinking out loud here so bear with me: Obviously I take another test...But if it comes back one way or the other does that really tell me anything? I most definitely should follow up with my doc right? Although 2 positives means more than 2 negatives would...cause there would still be that 1 test that was positive. Hummm...FI's at the firestation tonight so I can't talk to him about this...which sucks! I wish I could go back to the store to get another box...but I'm leaving shortly to go to the hospital as my sis will be getting induced shortly. Maybe I'll just have a dr. there give me a quick blood test...is it too early for that??? Ok...I'm done.


I gotta go, but looking forward to seeing what you ladies think...

OMG....go figure you'd get two different results!!  I would talk to a doc ASAP and get the blood test or urine test, whichever one they do.  I've heard it's more likely to get a false positive than a false negative (which is a double negative and very confusing....) but that's just word of mouth.  Def. talk to a doc!!


Good luck! (to you and your sis!)

ohhh yay!! Can't wait to see what your next test tells you! 


I had 3 positives, and then a negative at the OB's office.  We were all like, "Wth?"  He told me that rarely will you get a false positive b/c if it detects even a small amount of the HCG hormone, you will get a positive.  It is more likely to have a false negative, when you are pregnant, because you just aren't far enough along yet.


I'm 5 weeks 2 days pregnant...I have had 2 blood tests and it's "game on" in our house!  Good luck to you!!

I've read that a false positive is extremely rare and a false negative is much more common, so you're much more likely to be pregnant than not. I'd take another test or get to a doctor!

Hi girls sorry to keep you waiting! It's been an eventful night last night and day today...My sister had a little boy! Dominic Joseph 7lbs 11oz 19inchs He's the most precious thing!!


Hi girls sorry to photo 1060221-1


I don't have anymore updates on me right now unfortunately. I have FI going to the store to get another box. I'm offically 28 days into my normal cycle of 24 days...should have started my period on Saturday...the longest I've ever gone is 26 days. So I'm leaning more towards I am pregnant.


What's weird though is I don't feel any different. I don't feel like I'm going to start and I don't feel like I'm pregnant...It's weird...almost like what I would feel like in the middle of my cycle...


The earliest I can see my doc is Friday...with all the snow here the dr's office is closed tomorrow...I'll let you all know what my next test says...

Hi Girls,


I just wanted to give ya'll an update. I took 2 more tests last night...both came back negative. I still wasn't 100% convinced so I had a drs. appt. this afternoon. She confirmed the last 2 tests of a negative. She couldn't really explain the first test coming back positive...so that's a mystery.


I must say though that it hurt a lot worse than I thought it would to find out that I wasn't pregnant. I know it wasn't really something that FI and I had really wanted or planned on before the wedding...but the more we thought about it the more we really did want it. I can't imagine the disappointment we'll feel once we actually start TTC in a month or 2 and if it doesn't happen right away...cause this hurts a lot.


I've been quitely observing this group since it was created...and the one thing that did come out of this was it made me want to be active here...even if I won't be TTC until after 12/5...hope ya'll don't mind seeing me around here more often.


Thanks for all your support these past couple days...I can't wait to actually tell you all that I am pregnant!
