Probably a dumb question, but here it is!

Ok, so im trying to wait till this weekend to take a HPT, but lately ive been getting up in the middle of the night to pee, so im wondering... i know they say its best to use your first urine of the morning, but how does that work if your getting up at 3am to pee, lol. so do i check it then at 3, or will it be strong enough by like 7? i know it sounds dumb but i was jsut wondering, thanks!

  • If you limit how much you drink in the evenings you should be fine even if you get up in the middle of the night. ALso HPT's are so sensitive now-a-days, you can test in the middle of the day if you've limited your beverage consumption.

  • I'd check it at 3 but if I forget I could still check it later.

  • I dont think it matters much. I know some tests say that "first morning urine" is the best, but I ALWAYS used the cheap-o Dollar Tree tests.... and found out just as quickly as I would have with ept or any of the other tests... and it didnt matter if I used first morning urine or not. Good luck!

  • Yea it should work as long as you've had your urine in your bladder for atleast 3 hours also drinking alot of fluids may effect it too. Good luck hun I hope it all works out great!
