  • I wouldn't take a test now, even with the five or six day ones. I got one of those five day tests and took it and it said no. The baby is three now and she loves hearing about how the first test mommy took said she wasn't pregnant and nine months later I had her.

  • it's still too early. there would be a very small chance of a correct test, it would be a waste. generally the very earliest u can possibly test (with the early detection ones) is 4 days before your missed pd.

  • I also would wait, I have been going thru this same thing the past week, buying test after test getting pos and neg... My Dr said to just wait it out and save some money, so I am, fingers crossed!

  • I took the first response early response test and found out I was pregnant 6 days before my cycle was due. The dollar store test this time were not positive until after I missed my cycle and and the test with the plus sign was positive 4 days before my cycle was due but the line disappeared after the 5 minute time frame to read the test.
