  • firstborn = like 3 weeks. maybe less. I just KNEW i was pregnant. in fact we told people before we even knew, we were that sure. same on baby's gender. we KNEW it was a boy long before the parts were even formed. bought blue clothes even!!!

    baby #2 I was not so sure... waited a bit longer. we knew the gender again though. at 9 week ultrasound my husband used a pink marker to write the heart rate on the ultrasound photo.

  • You'll get a big fat negative if you test any earlier than two weeks minimum. It takes a week to travel the fallopian tube to the uterus and another week to implant. The placenta needs to attach to the uterus and start working. Then you need to allow it time to put enough Hcg in your system to register on a test. I would say wait at least three weeks.
