  • How many should I take and how far in between each? Tests are expensive and it seems that after reading some blogs on other sites ppl end up taking 4-6 before they get a true response that is correct. Ughhh

  • You can pick up tests at a dollar store and they work just the same as any other high priced tests. I would go pick up a few for $5 and then take them every couple of days and see if anything shows up. Not to scare you but I had a pregnancy that way and it was ectopic and I ended up having to have emergency surgery. If you dont feel well and suspect pregnancy even without a positive test go to the doctor. They can do a blood test and check you out fully.

  • ILovemyPaulie that is just it my period is normally 2-3 days of normal blood flow and 2 days of brown discharge and both December and January my periods were 2-3 days of light period so haven't "missed" a period per say just haven't had normal ones. I am not feeling sick just have the nipple look they say to look for and certain smells make me wanna barf along with stomach being hard and bloaded!!

  • If it was me and my periods were that irregular and I thought I might be pregnant then I would just go to the doctor and let them do a blood test. That would answer that since they are accurate from just a few days post conception.

  • All you can do is wait a couple weeks and test again.

  • I called my midwife I used when I miscarried and am going in on Monday to do a urine pregnancy test and if it still comes back negative they are going to draw blood but she said I very well could be with my symptoms so crossing my fingers it's a yes! Thank you guys!
