  • i did a home test and because I knew we were trying i just waited for my pissed period and the day I missed it I tested. I was very regular with my period...you should wait about a week after your missed period.

  • I was 11 weeks when I found out. I used a first response and it said pregnant before I was finished "using" the stick! But it was accurate because I went to my doctor the following week and tested positive ther as well.

  • I was maybe two weeks. I had absolutely no idea. I was cramping and thought I was going to start my period in the next couple days. My friend was certain she was pregnant. So, being a good friend, I took one with her to make her feel better about it. I was pregnant and she wasn't. I took another one, and the next day went to Planned Parenthood.

  • 14 days after egg retrieval after IVF. I only did the blood test at the doctor's office and sweated out the call for results late in the day. I have never seen a positive pee stick because I was too scared to take them.

  • I was 2 weeks when I found out. I didn't yet miss my monthly but I felt very heavy in my lower abdomen, worse than feeling bloated, and my skin hurt all over like I had a really bad sunburn.
