How long does it take for a positive to show up on a test?

@WagonWheel:  I would think by the time your period is missed you’d get a positive. Some women never get a positive HPT though.  It’s definitely possible you ovulated late and your cycle is longer this month so you haven’t missed your period yet.  I’d wait a few more days and maybe go to the dr for a blood test. Good luck!

It does sound like you ovulated later than normal, which is totally possible (stress, diet changes, sickness, etc).  If your period should have started on Sunday you should be safe to test now.  I’d buy a first response test and test with first morning urine tomorrow morning.  Then if it was negative, I’d wait until maybe Saturday to check again (this would be if you ovulated much later so your period would be later too).

Oh boy. Sounds like you may have ovulated later, but that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t be pregnant. I would test now.
