      Order now and it should arrive in time for you to do the test. It is accurate 7 days before your period is due, so you have a couple of days to go.

      Are you sure you are feeling 'different'? Wishful thinking can make us feel that way if we are trying to get pregnant. Dead giveaway for me was always a change in taste in my mouth, but everyone is different. Good luck smile

        yes my body feels different... and i know the body can change at anytime but i ask this question to see if anyone else has experienced this.. as i mentioned above;  the pinching in the overies, i have never had that before and the feeling full sensation this also i have never had , even when i was getting my period i have never had this major bloating feeling like this......i have never had that until this month...i did think about the wishful thinking bit but i am in reality and i hope i am but if not back to the drawing board and possible other options to have a child...

          Well when you think about it, there shouldn't be any 'pinching in the ovaries', because the eggs would have been released and the ovaries are not important after that, at least for this month.
          I did get niggly growing pains there but a lot further along in pregnancy - that was just muscle or tissue stretch.
          Bloating I would expect, but not until nearer when my period was due. Then again I got that every month, difference is when you are pregnant there is no release - it stays bloated.
          Still don't know. Take the test and let us either way what it says.
          A negative does not necessarily mean you are not pregnant because at this early stage you could get a false negative.

          Oh and read Eaglekiwi's hub on pregnancy smile

      I had this experience when I was trying to get pregnant as well. I'm not trying to dash your hopes, but I wasn't pregnant sad

    Welcome to Hubpages! smile

    I've only one question, before that question leads to others. How old are you?

      i feel foolish posting this but i have no experience in being preg... but i am in my late 30's...

        So, then my only other question would be that--do you feel differently than a bloating feeling? I don't know much about women when it comes to pregnancies, which is why I asked your age first.

        It could be water weight, but without any real test, I don't know, but just guessing.

        I hope you figure it out. Good luck. smile

    I remember going through the "trying to get pregnant" situation, and the wait can be so tough! I had times that I was sure I was pregnant, and when the test was negative I'd be very sad. Of course, one of those times it was positive, and my first son was born 9 months later. smile

    I would wait before taking the pregnancy test for two reasons. The first is that you might get a false negative: if you test too early, you might be pregnant but the test will read as negative because you don't have enough HCG (the pregnancy hormone) built up in your system.

    The second reason is that you might get a positive from a "chemical pregnancy" (this happens when an egg is fertilized but fails to attach - a very, very early miscarriage). With chemical pregnancies, a pregnancy test is positive but the menstrual cycle starts at the normal time. If you wait until your period is at least due, you won't get a chemical pregnancy result.

    Good luck - I hope you have + results this month!

      thank you for the input everyone is very helpful with the advice... and yes i will agree the waiting is very very tough especially after trying for 16 months to have a child...

    That's about how long it took for us to conceive our first son: we were going in for the initial infertility consult when I got the positive pregnancy test result - I hope the same thing happens for you!

    If you're so anxious, they sell those tests at the pharmacy. I don't think you need to read anything to know what to do; go and buy it.

    IF by chance you are not pregnant, I would recommend you look into acupuncture...

    I know quite a few people who tried to conceive with no luck until they went to acupuncture to help out
