  • Going by the date of your LMP, you SHOULD be 5 weeks tomorrow. It's easy to figure this out, figure out day one of your last menstrual period, then count the weeks between then, and today. That's how far along you are. As for the tests, there is a reason the instructions say test with your first morning urine.

  • DJDNY: i have plans to go tuesday since im off, im just impatient, this is my first pregnancy.
    Rosehawk: i was curious because i was told the tests can detect as early as 2 weeks, so i was curious as to why it was neg one day and pos the next, is there really that much difference? i was told by a nurse friend of mine that the test depends on how long the urine is in the body, which would have really only differed by about 1 hour, maybe another 30 mins.
