  • If you're a week late you can take a HPT now. Not everyone has the puking and mood swings, so don't wait for those to start, you might be one of the lucky ones. I suggest taking an HPT in the am and if it comes back positive go to the dr. If it comes back negative, wait a couple days and do it again, if it's still negative and you still havent gotten ur period, then call the dr and they can do a blood test.

  • A lot of home pregnancy tests can give you an accurate reading as soon as you miss. I agree with TheDiva...take 2 tests at home. If one comes up positive, schedule with your doctor.

    My morning sickness usually started between 5-8 weeks.
