I got a positive on the first one, which I took the day I was supposed to get my period (I took the test at night, after it never came). I took more after that to confirm, but they were all positive. I know if you test too early you might get a false negative, but when you retake the test depends on when you expect your period. I bought the tests that work up to four days before a missed period.

I do know a girl who tested negative on the pee stick, but positive with the blood work at her doctor’s office (she went in because she knew something was off with her body). So some people just might not register with a HPT. That said, I think that’s rare. I think it’s best to wait to test until you miss your period, but I know how hard that is. Good luck! 🙂

It’s happened to me.  I tested on a Saturday 4 days before period was due -negative.  Tested Tuesday night after period didn’t show up – negative.  Tested Wednesday morning – POSITIVE!   So yeah, it happens. 

Definitely wait until you know you’ve missed your period,  even though I know it’s hard to wait!

Nope, all 3 of mine tested positive the first try, at my first missed period.  But I’ve heard it’s quite common for false negatives.  I would wait until your period is supposed to show up and then retake the test.  Good luck! Smile

I think when I took the test it came out glow in the dark, it was so positive.  So I didn’t have that experience, but I also waited until 5 days AFTER my missed period.

I tested positive on the first try with all three childen, BUT I waited until I was several days late each time AND I was always very regular.

My first test was positive, but I waited until I was a day or two late {with a regular cycle} to test.

I would wait completely until you have missed your period. Its been about 4 days since I missed my period and I just took one last night and POSITIVE!!! I went to another store to get a different and more expensive brand cuz I wanted to be SURE and still positive. I got one reg. pregnancy test and then a digital! Def wait then you’ll feel more confident if it comes out positive.

@christie.l: I always have problems believing the pg tests with two lines so I bought a digital test that says pregnant and not pregnant, so it only took one before I believed it. I did take 3 non-digital tests a couple of days apart from each other, I just wanted to make sure the line was getting darker
