  • I agree with kylansmommy09, buying pregnancy tests are a waste untill you have missed a period, don't worry I'm with you on trying to wait and get pregnant, I've been waiting for over five months for a missed period :(

  • Despite the excitement to know now, it's not something you get to control. You're best bet is to wait until you miss your cycle. That said most tests now days allow you to test five days before your period is due. There's really no wiggle room. A week for the egg to travel to the uterus, a week to implant, and another week for enough HCG to build up in your system to register on a test. Of course by the next week your cycle would be due to start.

  • My best advice to you is to wait at least until your period is due. Even waiting an additional week would be good, because pregnancy tests are expensive and sometimes HcG doesn't always show up when expected.
