waiting to take a test and i am losing my mind!

My period is not til the 21st but I am going to take a test Sat. 5 days sooner. I try to keep my mind off of the time but all I think about is taking the test. What if I am not prego and I have to do this wait over again next month too. My nerves are getting to me! I feel real anxious! How can I take my mind off things? I have cleaned my house so much that now I have nothing to do which is not typical of me at all. I don't know how to manage this anxiety.

  • *IF* you are not pregnant this month, pick up a copy of "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler...charting your cycle will really really make a difference in your confidence.

    But're completely normal.

  • I just made DH give me more sex. I made me fell like I was getting pregnant-er! Ha!! 5 days before your missed period is early early to test. You can easily get a false negative then. You'll make yourself crazy. Wait until the day before AF and use first morning urine.
