Scared... help...

So lately I have been feeling sick, tired, getting headaches, somewhat of back pain, changes in my boobs, been going to the bathroom more often and change in taste of food. Apparently, they are signs of being pregnant but I took a first step pregnancy test today and it was negative. I don’t know what to do. I’m scared. I want to know if I’m pregnant or not so, I could tell the father of the unborn kid before he deploys…

  • Are you late? Have you been pregnant before? Being pregnant feels a LOT like PMS....

  • Preganacy hormones double every two days, so every two days would be a good testing schedule.

    When was the last sexual contact? If it was more than two weeks ago, the tests should be pretty accurate about now.

  • If the tests still come up negative for the next week, you are probably not pregnant. It would have been enough time for a pee test to see the hormones.

  • I am thinking about going to the pharmacy to get another test. Which one should I get? Would it be best if I got it next week or something since I took one today?
