  • When I was TTC dh made me start waiting at least 30 days because my periods have never been regular and he hates seeing me get my hopes up.

  • Most people say wait about a week. Has anyone here ever used american fare digital? I did and it came up positie yesterday. But when I took clear blue digital today it came up negative. Any answers

    Time of day. If you are barely pregnant right now and say you had some coffee or something before you tested, you could actually diute the hormone out. Best time to test is first thing in the morning before you drink anything. If you don't really have to go in the morning pee in a cup and dip the test in the cup. Other than that possibly expired test. They do expire so check the date before you buy. Make sure you read the test in the alotted time frame given.
