You could try this weekend...Check out babyzone.com...you can go under the trying to concieve section and put in your date, It will tell you the best time to test, if your prego, you can convert your profile to expecting and get all kinds of neat updates, and if your test is Neg, it will help you to figure out when your ovulating and give you the best times to baby make :D

You could take it the week you would start your period or a few days before. I swear by First Response that lets you know 5 days sooner. The closer to the next expected period the better. We were planning our second and I tested 5 days before I was expecting and I got a faint positive line, luckily, but the longer you can hold out the more accurate the response.

i believe its 5 days prior of missing your period. from experience i found out i was pregnant one week before even missing my period. Try taking it in the am, first pp of the day. I also know someone who took the test a week prior and came back negative and two weeks later came back positive so its can go both ways....good luck!

i would wait four to six weeks before taking a pregnancy test.

the reading will be more accurate.

Your level is not high enough yet to detect a positive result. Give it a min. of 4 weeks before you buy a test cause you could come out with a unaccurate reading, which you dont want your emotions played with especially if you are trying. I took all my test at the 4 weeks mark and even though hafl came up very faint it was still a positive reading.. Just giving you a heads up girlie. You are most fertile about 3 days before your period as the eggs are dropping so just keep that in mind and plan a week before you period is due to go crazy on your man.. lol..

I dont know for sure but the commercials I see for at home pregnancy test, the "strongest" one claims it can determine if you are pregnant "5 days before your MISSED period" But I don't know if I would trust that just because there has to be enough of the chemical the test detects before it will show a positive result. Just keep track of your last period and take a test 5-6 weeks after that (that would be the earliest I would start testing)

You could take one now, but it is unlikely to come up with any results. I waited until I was about 6 weeks late before I took any tests with either of my pregnancies, and I got very clear results when I waited.
