When do you take a pregnancy test?
At what point during your cycle do you take a pregnancy test? If you are trying to conceive do you wait the Two Week Wait, or do you start testing earlier? Or, if you're not trying to conceive, how late are you when you start testing?

2 days after

Posted by: kay17 on Thu Jun 14, 2007

I've been pregnant twice. I had a miscarriage the first time and the second time lead to my healthy 3 year old daughter. I am married, but neither of my above mentioned pregnacies were planned. I have a normal 28 day cycle so when my period was 2 days late, I tested. By this point, I didn't even have to wait the 3 minutes. As soon as I held the stick up, I had a plus sign. I just started officially trying for baby number 2 this past weekend, so now I have the two week wait. I'm not used to this wait and its killing me! I too want to go ahead and take a pregnancy test! :) But from what I've read, there is no point. I've got to wait it out until at least 5 days before my period is due despite the fact that I already feel tenderness in my chest. We shall see. My mind could be playing games on me! I am going to use one of those early pregnancy tests 4 or 5 days before just to see :)
