    You can test now. I tested 5 days before my period was due and came back positive
    Best of luck

    Personally, I'd wait until at least Saturday to see if your period comes.

    I agree with tlkittycat1968.

    You can test now, but it will be more accurate if you wait for your missed period.

    Good luck!

    Ok, I should probably wait hu... so I am not too disappointed! What brands do you guys use that you've liked the best. I've done just the dollar store preg tests before, but this time I got like the equate version of one of the nicer brands. But I don't know if that really makes a difference? Thanks guys!

    I found the first response pink lined tests to be more sensitive. But, if you wait long enough, then it shouldn't make much of a difference.
