  • I waited 1 day after my missed period and got a positive. With my first pregnancy I tested the day I was supposed to start and got a positive.

  • I was 1 day late when I tested and got a definite positive! I had tried the day before but the line was so faint i could barely see it, I actually didn't know that it was positive until the next day when I saw the definite positive, that's how light it was.

  • With my daughter, I waited until a week after I missed my period. With this pregnancy, I just waited one day and tested positive.
