  • You can test a few days before you miss your period. I took one with both my pregnancies before my period was due. I felt tired and just had a hunch that I was pregnant.

  • if you think you might be pregnant take a test. I took a test the day after I missed my period and it was positive! I was so exited I took two more. lol.

  • How did I find out? The clinic at the AF Hospital called and said the test was positive. I was 2 months pregnant and throwing up I pretty much knew but there were no home pregnancy tests in 1967. They wouldn't even let you have an appointment until you had missed two periods.....bummer.

  • if you're a couple of days late you could try any time now. i found out when i was a week late, one day late, and one day before i missed lol.

  • I took a test. Its very funny because with every pregnancy I had, and I hav 3 kids, I went out and bought a jumbo pack of tampons and a preggo test just in case and sure enough every time I was pregnant! LOL

  • Before I found out I was pregnant, my breasts were very sensitive to cold. It hurt very badly. I also had dark spotting and abdominal pain that I thought was going to turn into my period. Just found out today from this site that it was called "implantation bleeding." When I asked my doctor about it 8 months ago, the only response I got was "it's normal." I was having the spotting before I was even testing positive on home pregnancy tests. The ER even told me I wasn't pregnant at that point.
