Go and get an at home test. They are actually the same exact test that doctors use when they get you to pee in a cup. Get a digital test so that you don’t have to squint at lines. you need to know one way or the other, not sit around stressing about it which can throw your period off even more so. 

Most doctors where I live will give you a pee test (if you haven’t taken one at home) before sending you for he more accurste blood test. At 3 weeks post sex you could certainly have the blood test. So pee on a stick and then go have a blood test. 

Whatever the result, whatever you decide to do, you’ll figure it out. 🙂

Digitalis can be less sensitive so most people would recommend a First Response Early Result test. If you do get even a giant line it’s a positive

At home tests are more accurate than they have ever been. Just go buy one to know. If it’s positive,  you know. If it is negative,  and then your period still doesn’t show up, take another. If yourm period comes, you know. Symptom spotting will just make you nuts.

There’s no point in worrying about or deciding anything until you confirm a pregnancy one way or the other. Go and get a test.

Wow sorry, DIGITALS are less accurate and if you get a FAINT line on a FRER it’s still a positive.

 

autocorrect fail!

Equine_Breeder:  Faint –> Giant. One of the best autocorrects ever – I had a serious laugh about that one.

LuluInLove:  Wow, what a story this could be! Hope you’re feeling ok – I’m sure there’s a lot going through your mind at the moment. Do a test so that you have a better idea, either way, and keep us posted. Have all my fingers crossed you get the result you’re after 🙂

Try not to stress yet! It’s actually not that easy to get pregnant even if you have a “mishap” at exactly the “right” time. If you conceived 3 weeks ago, it would very possibly be enough time to find out via HPT. I agree with PP that getting a First Response Early Result is your best bet at this point. 

And congratulations on your adoption!!

Take a test, but my bet is that your cycle is just wonky from the stresses/change of routine of having a newborn. 🙂

OTC pregnancy tests are very reliable – and definitely much more reliable than guessing based on symptoms. If you ovulated three weeks ago, you are well past the point where a pregnancy test will give you a reliable answer, so go ahead and pee on a stick! Then you will know for sure, one way or the other.

I work with a guy whose wife was told she was infertile, so they adopted a little girl, and that exact same month, she got pregnant. The kids (now 10) are 9 months apart, are both in the same grade and are best friends!

If you are indeed pregnant, congrats! It will be fun for your son to have a sibling so close to him in age! If not, then you’ve had all this stress/worry over nothing!

LuluInLove:  Firstly, congrats on the adoption! That is amazing :)<br /><br />Second, I agree with all the PPs – get an at home test. I have PCOS, so when I got a positive mid-cycle this January (ie about the day I thought I was going to ovulate) I assumed it must be wrong and called the dr to ask for blood work to confirm. She said don’t bother, that the modern tests are so accurate that if there is a positive, you ARE pregnant. And, judging by the size of my belly, I’d currently agree (that and, you know, 6 ultrasounds because I ended up high risk 😉 ).
