What do you think?

We have been TTC for a year now, and i have not been late for my period in like 8 months. I am not two days late for my period and i do have some symptoms, but i took a test today and it was negative. I dont know if i should keep taking test, or what, i have called to see the doc but my doc does not have an appt open until mid april. Please not rude comments, i am new to all of this and i though who better to ask than you moms who have been through this. SO...what do you think?

  • If you don't get your period in a few days, try pregnancy test again.

  • Wait about a week (I know it sound like a looong time lol) & if you still don't have your period, test again. Also make the doctor's appointment anyway. You can always cancel it if you get your period before then.

  • I'd wait a week and then take a test. It can take time for the hormone to build up enough in your system to register. Those early detection pregnancy tests say " up to 5 days before your missed period" but that doesn't mean it will work for everyone. I took a test before during and after my "period" with my daughter because I knew we had an accident and I was paranoid. None of them showed up positive. I took one a week later randomly because I had one left and I thought what the heck and it turned out i was pregnant.

  • I would say wait a couple days, then test again...but I am OCD about it, so I usually test a ridiculous amount of times until I see a positive or a period.

  • Yes, I would wait like a week or so and try another one. SOmetimes you sre to early to show on a pregnancy tesy but a blood test will show earlier.
