How soon did you take a pregnancy test?

I am at a point where I am wondering, I am usually very regular, and getting close with no signs of starting. With my son, I found out when I was six weeks pregnant.
How about you? How far along were you when you did your first pregnancy test?

  • It was the 7th of the 8th and my period had been on the 4th or 5th of the previous month. I ran out and picked it up and found out I was pregnant. I am now 14 weeks. my first pregnancy I was a month or more pregnant before I took a test.

  • Some of the tests can tell before the first day of your missed period.

  • The first time I had been going to a fertility clinic and they said not to because the meds could show a false positive. I had IUI and I had a blood test about twice a week for then next two weeks to see if the markers were changing, they were. The second time was at almost 9 weeks. I am not regular and my DD was sick and her doctor said a stomach virus was going around. She got better and I didn't. My DH was away on business, so I thought that played a part. I tested when DH came home and I wasn't felling better.

  • Well I had my first ultrasound 2 weeks after I took the HPT and I was 6.5 weeks so I guess I was about 4.5 weeks when I got the positive HPT.

  • my first pregnancy I was young so I kept blowing off the symptoms as something else. didn't know for certain until 6 weeks along.
    when I started having the same symptoms 18 years later, I tested as soon as I suspected.

  • i actually didnt even pay attention that i was almost a month late on my period, my boyfriend is the one who noticed. then i was at a friends and i took two tests, and one the very next morning. i was probably about 7 or 8 weeks pregnant when i found out.
