    Should I test or wait?

    Trying to get pregnant, my period is due on Saturday. For a couple of days now, I have been really tired, moody, hungry, experiencing some breast tenderness, very mild nausea, increased urination, I'm just not sure if I should wait to see if my period shows up or take a test?

    It may be too early to take a test. PMS and early pregnancy symptoms often mimic each other so I'd wait and see if your period comes before you test.

    How late is your period?

    If your period is more than a week late and you're still having symtpoms, you can see your doctor now for a blood test.

    Keep in mind that it's common for women to skip a period. It usually just means she didn't ovulate.

    Its only 2 days late, just really not feeling myself, so I think I'll wait a few more days and see my doctor

    If the test was done with 1st morning urine the it should be accurate, but if you get to a week or later then you should re-test with 1st morning urine and if still negative results then you may want to see a Dr. for a blood test.
    Best of luck.

    It wasn't done with the first morning urine, I saw my doctor at the walk in clinic last night for a different problem, he has advised me to come in for a blood test, so I am doing that today, not sure how long it takes for the results, happy thoughts though

    Really depressed, with the way I have been feeling I was sure I was pregnant, but the blood test came back negative, still no period. Time to book a doctors appointment, something is not right, if I am only getting my period every other month now, I got it in march, nothing in april, got it in may, now nothing in june. So confused and disappointed
