Clear Blue Pregnancy Test

My husband and I are trying to conceive our 2nd child. My period is due early next week and I will be honest---I am anxious and very excited to take a pregnancy test if I don't get a period. Clear Blue box says you can take it up to 5 days before your period is due; however it's more accurate the day and after you miss your period...just wondering if anyone has tested early and gotten an accurate result? Thinking about trying it...or maybe I should just wait?! My period is very regular...every 25 or 26 days.

False Negative Pregnancy Test??

I was wondering if anyone has ever gotten a false negative on a pregnancy test? I got my IUD taken out at the end of August, 4 days later I got my period on time. I was due for my period yesterday, and still have not gotten it, and I am usually very regular, always have been. I took a test this morning, and it was negative (no signs of the 2nd pink like at all). I know I may be a little irregular since this is my first full cycle after getting the IUD out....but was hoping the pregnancy test was wrong. I felt PMS'y last week - sore...

Positive Pregnancy Test

Hello all- I just got a positive pregnancy test today- one line was faint in color- the other dark. Does it matter the color of the test? Am I pregnant??? I had 3 negative tests- and then the one today- looks like it was positive. Should I call my doctor? I am so anxious about this test. Thanks to all who respond.

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?

The Beauty Experiment - Would You Do This?

There was a woman today on Good Morning America that went one year without wearing makeup. She wanted to find out "what a man would do" - deodorant, MAYBE some gel, no jewlery, etc. and found that she loved it. but "society" didn't handle it too well. I can go either way - I don't wear a ton of make-up - mascara nor foundation. I MIGHT wear eye shadow when I meet candidates, but overall, I use the KISS (Keep It Simple Silly) method. The segment found that women spend up to $15K for beauty treatments during the year...ouch...that's a...

Career - What Would You Do?

Current situation: After 15 years into your gig you have a job that pays six figures, is a fairly easy job. You're tenured and there is very little chance of getting whacked since there are at least a dozen hires below you. You get breaks and summers off. Your work environment is supportive and nurturing and your boss rocks. However, you're exceptionally bored at your job and the passion you used to have has been snuffed out. You feel like your talents and skills could be more beneficial in another field and you simply cannot imagine...
