  • it could be either - 1 day late really doesn't mean anything. She should wait a week and then take another test if AF hasn't shown up yet.

  • if she is wanting to be pregnant bad enough it could be in her head. Could be her mind playing tricks on her because she wants so bad to be pregnant. Other than that I am not sure sorry.

  • I took 2 tests 1 5days before my missed period and 1 test the day before my missed period. Both were negative. Then missed my period and tested 3 days after i was late and it was Positive. I suggest she wait a few days, 1 day late really isn't' too big a deal--could be stress or any number of things.

  • yes it is possible she's pregnant. With our oldest I didn't get a positive on a HPT until I was almost 3 weeks late. I was taking one every other day (we were trying to get pregnant). With our second I was a little over a week late before it showed up and with our third I was 5 days late before it showed up.

  • I know it took me a couple of tests to get a positive result. I would have her wait a week and try again.

  • It could be either. I know there were times when I wanted to be pg when I psyched myself into every symptom in the book... it's also possible that if she ovulated a few days late that it's too early to get a positive test. She could wait a few days and test again if AF doesn't show before then.

  • It could easily be all in her head, it's happened to me. I thought i was pregnant once, i was a week late. Like the minute i thought i might be pregnant, came morning sickness. I had morning sickness for three days until i finally went & bought a test at the drug store. When it came out negative, i stopped having morning sickness & my period started. Weird huh?

  • Some people are more sensitive to the hormone changes than others. I felt it a week after getting pregnant and sure enough, I tested positive a week before AF was due. She could have ovulated later than she thought, so as others have said, she should wait a week and take another test.
