  • You're late about 10 days which is the recommended time to take a test. Try to take it in the morning when you wake up because that is when the pregnancy hormone is at it's strongest. Remember, if you have one visible line and one faint line that is still a positive. Be sure to contact your doctor and let them know. Also, if you have a negative test but still feel unsure, call your doctor right away. Hope this helps!

  • It's best to use the first urine of the day as that's when the hormones are most concentrated...throughout the day they dilute out and some tests will not pick them up...I would recommend a Walmart generic over the dollar store

  • I used First Response (it brings two.) I took the first one at night and it gave me a positive test so when I took the second one 2 days later I knew it would probably be a positive. Good luck! :)

  • Yeah I also took a dollar store one with the first morning urine-neg. Then a first response later that day-positive. So I wouldn't recomend a dollar store one. The first response ones are not too spendy and have always showed up soon for me. Good luck.

  • Just tell him you have to go to the bathroom and you'll meet him in a certain place afterward. Go buy it and hide it in your purse. The first time I was pregnant I wrote "ready or not" on a piece of paper and left it where I knew he'd see it and "here I come" on my belly. When he asked me what the note was all about I showed him my belly. I thought it was cute just an idea. =)
