  • 4.5 weeks for my first, 4 weeks for my second. I was charting both times, so I knew for sure when I'd ovulated and when I should have started my period. My first, my period was late, so I knew I was pregnant before I took the test. My second, I was having symptoms a week before my period was supposed to start, so the day of, I took a test and it was positive.

    If your period is past due and tests are coming back negative, then wait a week and test again. After a couple of weeks, if your period still doesn't show, see a doctor. There are all kinds of tests these days, like blood tests and ultrasounds. Though you have to be prepared that the pee tests might be right, and the symptoms could be in your head from wanting to be pregnant, PMS, or due to some other kind of hormonal imbalance.

    Good luck!

  • I was about 19 weeks when i went to get the test. LOL My only symptom was a missed period. And I had missed 3 months before. I had a U/S soon after and they said I was 19 weeks and 3 days.

  • My dd was five months before we knew. I think she was in denial. I took her to the dr and she still denied it! The fact that she was a teen might have been a factor!
