  • you took one way too early! i did the same thing so many times and wasted so much money lol. wait until your period is ATLEAST a week late. any earlier then that and your results will not be accurate! good luck!!

  • Yep, too early.
    Follow the directions in the package. A couple brands say you can test 3 to 4 days AFTER your period is late. Most say a week.
    And be sure to take it first thing in the morning with your first morning pee. That will be most accurate too.

  • Too early. Could just be gas or bloating too. Wait until you have missed your period. You got yours right when I got mine and mine isn't due until next Weds.

  • Take a home one on: 2-1-09
    Otherwise go get from the doctor a prenatal blood test.

  • way too early I would last period was december 19th and I am still getting negatives on home pregnancy tests...the only reason I found out i was pregnant is cause I was having sharp pains and since I just had an IUC removed the doctor wanted to know if I was or not so he could check for ectopic pregnancy...wait a few more weeks or call the doctor and ask for a blood test! Don't be surprised if you get negatives on hpt until 6-8weeks of pregnancy! Good luck and baby dust!

  • You took it too early. You can take an early pregnancy home test the begining of Feb and then re-test every week after until you either get a positive or get your period.

  • Was going to add that 1-28-09 is when a blood test would be accurate to show.
    So either you can wait until 2-1-09 for a home test or go see a doctor sooner for a test and exam.
    Best of luck.

  • well you said you had a period jan.4th and the normal would be every 28 days you have a period and it's only been 26 but I don't know the normal for you.All I can say is just wait.

  • If you have a normal 28 day cycle you should start your period on the 1st of Feb. I would wait until that date to test. Also, take the test first thing in the morning as the urine is supposed to contain more of the hormone
