for a pregnancy test, FMU is best. But you can do a 4 hour hold and it usually produces the same results. BUT since you’ve been POAS so much with FMU, I don’t think a 4 hour hold will do anything differently for you.

I held my tinkle for 3 hours and got a positive result. If i were you, though, I’d probably test at 4am, since that’s when you wake up and before you drink so much water.

@BellaDee:  WHy not test at 4 am when you get up to pee?

After you’re period is late, you should b e able to get a positive at any time, especially after a 4 hour hold assuming you aren’t chugging water.

@BellaDee:  I guess I don’t get it, if you got to bed at 10-11 and don’t drink anything until 4, you’ll be fine to test.  I don’t think drinking a glass of water throughout the night between 10-4 is going to dilute your urine.  It doesn’t seem like your consumption is super high throughout the day either.  If you’re not getting positive HPTs, you’re likely  not pregnant.  If you think you are, go get a blood test.

@BellaDee:  Right, but going to bed at 11 and getting up 4 gives plenty of time to get an accurate test.

I’ve done a 4 hour hold before and it’s worked.  It gives more concentrated urine.

When I got my BFP I woke up at 5:30am and I was too excited so I just did the test then.  Of course I then woke my husband up with all my noise.

Can you cut out water between 10pm and your 4pm pee? Then you should get some decent concentration!
