I already have two boys and my hubby and I are starting to try for number 3. I got off of the pill Sept 12, and have arm surgery on Oct 15 so we've been kind of risking it since then. Once I got off of my pills I had a two day period but nothing since then. Now I'm exhausted, nauseas in the morning and evening, emotional and light headed. I took a test but it was negative. Since I didn't have a period I'm not sure if I ovulated, but need to know if I'm preg for sure or not by the 15th when I have surgery...any suggestions?

Yep, I agree with everyone about the blood test... my friend took TWO pregnancy tests and they were both negative which was obviously wrong since she has a daughter now!

I was the same with my first, tests can be inaccurate until later on in the pregnancy. If you only early it wont be detected so I agree with what others said about going for a blood test etc, if it's importnant you know they will do it! good luck x

I would agree with the blood test but any doctors office should be able to do it not just your ob. But you should do it as soon as possible this way you can know before the surgery

Have your doctor run a blood pregnancy test. It is more accurate and can sense a very small amount of HCG. I would have them do this before your surgery.

Brandi - Thanks, I was thinking about having the blood test done too. I figured I would wait until Monday or so then go in if the home test is still neg. That's what is worrying me the most is that I'm not sure WHEN to test because I never had a regular period, so I'm not even sure if I ovulated. My last period was Aug 17, i skipped Sept. 17, so a couple days AFTER my surgery (to little to late!) is when I should start again...what a pain! Thanks for the help.

I would call your ob-gyn and ask if they can do a blood test. tell them you feel like you might be pregnant, but your period really isn't "due" yet, so the home test comes back neg. I would also tell them about your upcoming surgery. I'm sure they will understand and might be able to get you in to do the blood test (it is more accurate than the urine test and can be detected a little sooner) It sounds like you are trying to take the test a little early. it also could be from coming off the pill. If your dr. can't squeeze you in, I'd either go to the e.r. or make sure your surgeon knows the possiblity of pregnancy. Maybe he could run a blood test before he does the surgery. He really needs to know before he operates, i would imaging. good luck with baby #3.

Try taking your test 1st thing in the morning. I took my test in the evening with my second one and it came out negative and the second test I took first thing in the morning and it came back positive and was right.
