Could I be pregnant?

I should have started my period about four days ago. Instead all I have had is light spotting. I have had two miscarriages in the past. Is it to early to take an HPT?

  • Yes I think you should wait at least until your a week late and light spotting does not always indicate a miscariage, I myslef had clotts of bleeding one day during my first pregnancy and My baby was fine I was about 3-4 weeks prego when that happend so take what you like from my experience

  • If you already missed it, I'd say go for the test. Or, just wait another week or two to be more accurate. It's possible that you're pregnant.

  • I'd say get a couple different brands of tests and have at it. Get a digital one too just so there's no confusion =P

  • It just sucks. Because we have been trying for five years and had two miscarriages. I haven't really had any other symptoms besides heartburn and gas.
