  • Well most HPT's are sensitive enough to pick up HCG a couple of days before your missed period, so it should show up by now, but if it is negative, I would still retest! Are your periods usually normal?

  • Follow your womans intuition. It's never wrong.

  • I found our I was pregnant at 4 weeks and had it confirmed at the doc's at 5 weeks. I'd say it never hurts to try. The only thing you might be out is some cash for the test if it is too early but it may very well set your mind at ease.

  • If you are indeed pregnant, it should show up on a test by now. However, some women test w/ hpt and it shows that they are not pregnant, when in fact they are. I would test. If it shows up negative, wait a couple of more days and test again if you still don't get your period. Best of luck!

  • If you have a regular cycle (28 days), then take a test. Most likely it will show up positive. Make sure you use the midstream of your urine. Wal-Mart has a packet of two tests for about $7. I have taken them many times are every time they were accurate. Good luck!!
