At this point, there’s no good reason not to test. It’s better to know either way.

Honestly… I probably would. I had period symptoms mostly at first (bloating, fatigue, hunger, cramping) but it was the sore boobs that did me in. I knew something was up when that started.

Like KatyElle said, no reason not to test. Just keep in mind that if you’re a week from missing your period still, it may come up negative even if you are.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  

 

Mine was off and on when I was pregnant. It always scared me, but it was totally normal.

I agree that there’s no reason not to test.  I didn’t get sore boobs until a week or two after I found out.  My main symptom that made me think something was up was how tired I was.  I was so tired that I seriously felt hungover 24/7 even if I slept for like 14 hours.  I think it’d make you feel better to test but I do agree to remember it may be early.  I tested two days before my period was due and it was negative but got a positive when I was three days late.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  Mine was on and off too. Some days they were more sore than others.

my first symptom was peeing in the middle of the night and more frequently overall!

given you are past your date for your period, testing is a good idea.  try now and if you get a negative, try again in a few days….

If you try to wait a week, you will make yourself crazy.   In making the decision to test, I used to ask myself which would be worse, seeing the negative, or seeing AF?  I would go from there.  Maybe hold off a day or two if testing worries you?  Or if seeing the possible negative is easier for you than seeing AF, then there is no reason not to test sooner.  I hope that all made sense!  Good luck!!

@Sunchick19:  I forgot that one! I was peeing like crazy at the beginning too!

I would just test, otherwise you will drive yourself crazy.  I’d also go ahead and get the digital test, the ones where you have to figure out if there is another line can drive you nuts.  The digital is just boom “pregnant/not pregnant.”    Love it!

I say test. What harm can it do?I like First response ones 🙂

I was extremely moody the week before AF was supposed to show, but that is usually how I am up to AF so I didn’t think anything was up. And then the day AF was due I had cramping like she was coming so I got all prepared and what do you know she never showed.

I probably would test too, but I would do it first thing tomorrow morning if AF didn’t come at all today.

FWIW, I was 100% positive I was getting my period.  DH was trying to take me to the grocery store, and I was being a real witch, and when he asked me what was wrong, I snapped back at him “I’m getting my period and I DON’T WANT IT.”

Few days later I tested positive.

Those were my exact symptoms! I peed non stop and had cramps and fatigue so I thought I was getting my period, and my boobies! So sore! I think you should test 🙂
