Should I wait or test now?

I'm a couple days late on my period. They have been pretty consistent as far as starting on time since I had my last baby (1 yo). They usually start on the 7th or 8th and it's the 9th. Should I wait it out or take a test now?

  • I would wait a few more days and if nothing happens then I would go get a blood test done, that way you know it's accurate.

  • I'm just afraid of wasting another ten bucks if it's negative.

  • I bought my tests through Amazon.com, for like 20 tests it's $5.00. That way you can test more. But a good test can tell you even 6 days before your missed period. I can never wait to test lol.

  • Then id take the test today so u know if u can have a drink or not. Let us know! I'm going to pee on a stick today myself. I'm 2 weeks late but I'm not counting on it. As much as I want to be.
