Hi ladies,

I haven't been in this group for a bit. I have a very good idea that I am pregnant. I am three days late. Or four if you count the day of I guess. So my question is when can I test. My DH is leaving for drill on the morning of the 3rd. I want to let him know before then. But I don't want a false positive. Suggestions? Last time I tested 9 days after. Maybe 6 more days?

Most women get accurate results right around when their period is due. I'd test right away unless you have a history of not getting positives until later.

I got a positive HPT! This morning. It turned instantly. Couldn't believe it.

You don't need to worry about false positives, false negatives are the real concern. At this point, the results should be pretty accurate though. False negatives happen a lot more to women testing on the day they should get their period or before.

Thank you. Now to find a midwife. I don't want to get cut open again.

Good luck. I've never had a midwife and I've never been cut open.
You've got plenty of time, so don't rush!
