  • I had a positive 1 week before I was due with both of my sons, so you might try and see.

  • All you can do is take a test. Know that the 99.9% accuracy only applies to a positive reading. It is very possible to have false negatives.

  • I tested two weeks before my period was due and got a negative. I re-tested 5 days before I was due and ta-da! There was a beautiful little "+" sign. Home pregnancy tests are really only accurate when you test within the time frame it says on the package. And even then, like dakotaNrye said, you can still get a false positive. Ifyou can, just make an appt. to get a blood test. Good luck!
