  • Did you use first morning urine each time? I've never heard of an infection causing a problem with a pregnancy test.

  • no,the first one was around noon and the one i took today was about 5 or 6 pm.I would only be like 4/5 weeks and im buying the really cheap test.maybe i need to buy a more expansive one?

  • the tests at the doctors are the simple cheap ones. they probably cost under $5. i payed $1 at dollar tree for my pregnancy test back in october & guess what? i'm 33 weeks pregnant now. maybe you took the test wrong? idk why you need to take more than 3 to figure out if you're pregnant, if you got the 2nd line on the 1st 2 tests then you're probably pregnant

  • i took a few cause i havnt missed a period yet,so i wanted to be sure.iv just been sick to my stomach for two weeks now and moody.nothing else would explain the other then being the first one was there just hard to see,the second was alil darker but not much,i took a 3rd to see if it was dark and there was nothing.iv been buying the 88 cent ones from walmart. my first daughter i was 8 weeks before a pret test said yes,my youngest i was 6 weeks.and i dont think im doing it wrong i put three drops on it and let it sit for 3 mins
