I never had a positive until I missed my period. With my youngest daughter, I missed my period but never had a positive home test, and required a blood test.
With my pregnancy loss, that never showed up on a home test.

4-5 days before my period, with a dollar tree test.

With my current (and second pregnancy) I just sort of knew, so two days before my period was due I took at test and it was positive (it was one of the ones that said it could be accurate up to six or so days before your period).
And it was right! My little boy is due in October!!!

10 dpo with both kids.
In both cases, that was before my "missed period" would be due.

Missed my period and by the 4th day I took the test. It was not even in the morning and it was positive. I would wait until you miss your period for it to be accurate.

First pregnancy with twins-I actually thought I was having my period but had this feeling because the period wasn't a "normal" one for me. I took the test which was an "Eckerd" brand and it was positive within seconds. The second pregnancy which was eventually a miscarriage. I was 3 weeks....I hadn't even expected my period yet but I just had this feeling. I bought dollar store brand pregnancy test and within seconds it was positive. At 5 weeks though I lost that baby ;()( We are thinking about trying again come fall so we shall see how fast I get a clue on that one-lol!

One day late. Not even kidding. I had a vivid dream that I was pregnant, so feeling stupid, I went and bought a pregnancy test. Sure enough it came back positive. My poor husband didn't even have a warning. No, Hey I'm a few days late....nothing. Just came home and BOOM baby on the way. LOL

With my first baby, my period was over a week late before I got a positive. I had tested a couple of other times after I missed that period and it was negative.
