How long after your missed period did you wait to take a pregnancy test? Was it positive or negative?

I'm 2 days late on my period. I'm waiting until I'm a full week late to take a test because I don't want to get a false negative. And no, we were not trying.

  • The longest I waited was 4 days with my first. I already knew because my cycle is always, always on. I got a positive almost immediately. My others were 6 and 5 days before with and early detector pg test!

  • I waited until after my second missed period, but I already had a strong feeling that I was. 4 were positive and 1 was negative.

  • I tested 4 days after my missed period. I peed on two pregnancy tests at one time (don't ask, it was boyfriend's idea) and both came back positive right away.
