if you are going to be rude don't answer.....too early???

So I took a pregnancy test this morning, because i've been nauseated, my boobs are extremely sore, to let water even hit them in the shower it hurts to take my bra off, I have had no cramping what-so-ever as if I am going to start my period like I usually do but I am still 8 days away, i had a headache for three days and it stopped and now its back, and i've been sleeping more than should I just wait and re-test if I miss my period, and then if it still shows negative go get a HCG blood level done?

  • As a nurse many women have had false negatives, so if your mense does not appear do another test.

  • I'm not sure I read that correctly... You're still 8 days away from the date you expect to get your period? If that is the case, it is too early to get a positive home pregnancy test, and also most likely too early to have any pregnancy symptoms. I suggest you wait until the date of your expected period and test again. If it is still negative, give it 2 or 3 more days, and test one more time. If it's still negative and your period still has not arrived, give your doctor a call to schedule a blood test.

  • Way too early. Give yourself some time. I would say if you have symptoms this early they are PMS symptoms.

  • Pregnancy symptoms and PMS symptoms are all most alike sometimes,,wait tell you miss your period for a week then test...Women now days are to anxious to find out if they are pregnant now days. Your going to be pregnant for about 9 months,,Why worry if your 3 weeks pregnant...

  • 8 days early is too early to test. Most test reports up to 50% accuracy 4 or 5 days before. So even when you are 5 days early, it is not nearly as accurate. Also I agree, 8 days early is a little too early to even notice symptoms. Most of the time, morning sickness and the like don't occur until close to 6 weeks, which puts you about 2 weeks after your missed period. I don't mean to be patronizing or condescending, but is it possible that you want a baby so bad you are reading too much into PMS symptoms or maybe creating symptoms that aren't real?
