Dealing with being discouraged...

It's only been a month since my husband and I started trying for baby #2!! My period isn't due until Monday, but I decided to take an early test today. *NEGATIVE* I know it's early and there still could be a chance, but I hate the disappointment of a negative ... any advice?

  • never take tests before your missed period. i know they say you can but they are not accurate. wait until your period is ATLEAST a week late. Mine didnt come out positive until i was 3 weeks late. your going to cause a lot of heartache (not to mention wasted money) by taking tests too early. so be patient!! when the time is right you'll get pregnant. good luck!!

  • You don't even have anything to be disappointed about yet. Wait until Monday and test again. Good luck!

  • If any thing, I wait several days after so that I know Im getting an accurate test result. Dont do that to your self cause that would drive me crazy too. Good luck to you though!

  • Hide the tests!! Promise yourself that you will not test until a few days after your period is due. Sure, some tests can pick up a positive before you've missed your period, but to get a more reliable result, it's better to wait.
