Should I wait?

I have an appointment at 8:30 on Monday to see my doctor for these gnarly headaches I'm getting. They are horrible migraines. Anyway, my question is, I have had several health professionals (including my dr at the last visit I had) ask me if I was pregnant due to some symptoms that I have had. So should I wait until Monday and ask for a pregnancy test to be run or should I pick up a home test this weekend when I work? What would you do?

  • I don't really like to wait lol so I would get one and test at home. Hope they find what is giving you those headaches.

  • As PP said, they'll likely run a test. If you can't wait, then do it yourself. I hope your headache gets better and they find out whats going on.

  • before giving a medication for migraines they will test for pregnancy. That's how my doctor found out I was pregnant with my second child 2 years ago.
