Alright, I was due for my period on the first maybe the latest the second, my period is usually on those two days when it comes... sometimes the 31st depending on the month length. It is now the 4th and I dont have it yet, I did a pregnancy test on the 2nd and it was negative. I did however have very very slight spotting when I wiped yesterday(only one time) and today I woke up at 5am to take some cold meds b/c I couldnt sleep (coughing, sore throat, stuffy nose) and I went to the bathroom and yet again another slight spot when I wiped, soooo I put a pad on thinking it would be full flo when I woke up...but nothing was in the pad. Since I have been awake sine 830 I havent had anything in the pad or any spotting when I use the bathroom. Now do you think my period is just playing games with me and I will get it by the end of the day or should I maybe wait till Sunday and if I dont get it by then test again? You know the ones that are TTC your head will play games with you sometimes, but I havent gotten my period any later then the second in the last 6months-I keep track in a planner. Or should I go get another test if I didnt get it by tomorrow morning? UGH I hate this waiting game b/c it could just be my mind and my period playing tricks with me. I am hoping for the best but I have been let down so many times that I am really thinking it is just my period coming. Any thoughts?!?!?!
I say go buy a test today. You can get a false negative but not a false positive. Before I found out I was pregnant, I had flu like symptoms also. Go buy one Jess. Let me know what you decide sweetie.
I agree. Be careful of what you are taking for your cold. If you are pregnant there are some things you should not be taking. Good luck!!!
I answered your e-mail!
Implantation takes two weeks, so you're ok with the cold meds for now, something like Tylenol Sinus or Tylenol Cold is okay throughout pregnancy anyway. Sometimes it takes a while for the HCG to build up enough in your urine to show up in these tests. Since it's still early, don't drink a lot of water tonight, and take the test with your first urine in the morning - even if it says you don't have to - the HCG concentration will be stronger, maybe strong enough for the test to detect.
I also had a false negative, even though my body was telling me I was pg - I just knew I was - so I waited a week, took the test again, and it was positive.
