EPT Or Clear Blue Digital?

Ok, ladies. I know many of you don't like "am I pregnant" questions, but I need your opinion about tests. We have been TTC for a few months, and today I took a First Response and got a faint positive. I have read that there's really no such thing as a false positive, so I think it probably counts, but I took the test in the middle of the afternoon because I am so excited and couldn't wait any longer! My hubby is not so sure it means a positive, so we went out and bought Clear Blue digital and EPT early result tests. I am going to take...

Negative Pregnancy Test

Today is 18 days after having unprotected sex and a pregnancy test I took a little while ago came up negative. I am still nursing our 14 month old and my period has not returned so the likelihood I got pregnant is pretty slim. Having said that, I am definitely more tired than usual, and in general feel run down and "off". Most likely I am just fighting a cold/virus, etc, but I'm wondering if by now the pregnancy test would have been positive if I were pregnant, or is there still some chance I could be and I should test again in a week? ...

How Accurate Are Home Pregnancy Tests?

I'm a week late (now 8 days) for my period. But the First Response home test (not the digital but the one with the lines) clearly says I'm not pregnant. My husband and I have been "trying" for about 4 months. I'm turning 39 at the end of this month. I had a copper IUD in previously. The month after that came out I had a 30 or 31 day cycle. Then the 3 months after that I had a 24 day cycle (exactly the same each time). Now it's been 32 days and I'm still not having a period. I know that I should just "relax" and wait another 3 days or a week...

When to Test!

I know you should take a pregnancy test with your first morning's urine, but what if you are getting up in the middle of the night to pee? My sleep schedule has been way off this past week and I have been up at all hours of the night (really getting old!) and every time I get up I pee before attempting to go back to sleep. We are on our first month off the pill TTC. My period is due the 8th or 9th. I tested this morning and I saw a very faint line. (i know, i know a day or 2 early but it's so hard to wait!!) Went back to the store for more...

How long does it take to conceive a second child?

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since April. We have a beautiful 18 1/2 month old little girl. I am starting to get a little down because it is taking so long to get pregnant this time. It only took us four months to get pregnant the first time, which we lost that baby, and only two months to get pregnant with my daughter. Its been nine months since we started trying. Did it take anyone else this long to get pregnant after there first child? Do you think it is time to talk with my docter?

Did You "Try" for a Boy or Girl & Either Got One or Didnt?

I know some people don't like when people prefer one gender over the other, but honestly I think nothing is wrong with it & I never look down on anyone for feeling the way they do. I have 2 sons, 1 from a previous relationship who is 5 and one who is 4 with my husband. I am currently 5 weeks pregnant and wanting a girl however before deciding on getting pregnant or not, I was completely satisfied with the fact I could have another boy. I just want opinions on if you tried for a certain sex, what did you do? Did you wait 3-4 days before...
