Could I be pregnant?

smilingbre

So I might be pregnant. My boyfriend and I have tried to be very careful as to not get pregnant but I have had this weird very very very light spotting like a few drops the last few days and my period was suppose to start today and it hasn't. I've been having these crazy really bad headache for the last few days and just haven't felt well. Not to mention I've been "sassy" to everyone. My boyfriend told me today that I needed to stop being so sassy b/c it was driving him crazy... I don't even realize I am. I have had very weird cravings (even weirder then my usual cravings). I told my bf that I might be prego and told him what was going on. Hopefully my period starts soon! If not we are going to the store and getting a pregnancy test.... its his birthday weekend so I hate to spoil his great weekend by this. We have decided to take a pregnancy test Sunday and then throughout the week and next weekend (to make sure... if it shows up negative)... does it sound like I could be pregnant??? Is one test better then another test.... which test would you recommend?

Generally I think all test are the same. They are all testing too see if you have a certain hormone in your urine that shows up at about 4 weeks pregnant of after. I personally took ect I think the brand is called, there was a big plus sign within seconds. Normally you wouldn't have symptoms this early on, but if your period is late and you are sexually active there is always a chance. But be warned, when you start "thinking" you are pregnant you get all these pregnancy symptoms. If you're already late, take the test Sunday morning (make sure it's in the morning/when you first wake up) because that's when the test is most accurate.

First Response I've read shows up with the lowest amount of HGC. HGC is the hormone that tells your body that you're pregnant, so the less it measures for the more likely you are to get an accurate result.

i definitely agree. Clearblue is the one i used too. it was a little more expensive but it was very clearly a "pregnant" result since it was words! lol. my mom got me another one and i took it and had no idea what it said and we are very intelligent people. i knew i was because of the first one though. lol.

i definitely agree with Lir. be careful about thinking you're pregnant. i know that one time i was absolutely determined i was pregnant and i wasn't no matter how many tests i took but i had all the symptoms. don't worry too much. :] let us know.

I knew i was pregnant a week before my period was due. I could just tell. I tested with a target brand test 4 days before my missed period and still got a positive. what can i say, i was being cheap lol

I tested with one of those off brands from the gas station...haha. But it showed up positive 3 days after my missed period. So it worked for me. I think all tests really are about the same. If you do have a little extra money though, I'd go with clearblue. They tell you in wordsTongue I think it's cool. haha

I missed my period by like three months so I thought something fishy was going on. I got one of those store brand pregnancy test's from wal-mart and as soon as I peed on it there was a positive sign.

Yeah I got a false negative a few days before my positive too. First Response claims to have the earliest results but allot of it may be smudged to make the packaging look better.
