*sigh*...I was just thinking that maybe I should just wait until tomorrow...and if things don't arrive as planned...then I should take one?...how long does it take for something like that to show? I've never had to take one before....

They have tests that will show you right away. I think it is First Response.

Take one.
Having a period is no guarantee you're not pregnant.
My sister continued having a regular period with all three pregnancies until the 4th month.

These tests are to detect Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG), a hormone secreted from the placenta into the maternal circulation with a role in the maintenance the pregnancy. Even the most sensitive tests generally require that you wait until the first day you miss your period, so tomorrow would be an appropriate day to test. Keep in mind that you could get a false negative if the test did not detect the hormone. If you're going to test this early, it is best to use your first morning urine because this is when the hormone is most concentrated.

Sure hope this does not become an issue for you. Baby Harley is all the baby you need right now!

I agree with testing - early knowing is a good thing! Also, it may be something with the seasons; fall has always bothered me because of the shifting light patterns. That can pop up at any time, and be pretty random! Also, if you are not pregnant and stay this way for more than two weeks, it's time to see a doctor. Depression can be random and rapid.

I have a long history, but one fall I had a major episode, and believe it or not, it was because I didn't get into the choir at college I wanted to be in! I was still in a good one, but not the best. For some reason, I just cried and cried...and felt wierd, and started losing weight, etc. I waited too long, and got very sick. I am about the only one I know who talks about this stuff... perhaps I shouldn't??

But I'm guessing that your mood is more transitory. Good luck with all things, and make sure you don't put off seeing a doctor if there are any medical or persistent mood changes.

It is more accurate with the first morning urine, so you should do it in the morning. Hopefully it is just a case of PMS + stress + hormones. I'll be watching for the results!

It was very, very painful, which is odd cuz for me it usually is never like that....oh the joys of being a woman...

I was talking to my friend here the other day and she told me, "oh, maybe you are pregnant" (from my crying spirts) I was like oh great, thats all that I need...being 21 and unmarried and pregnant...that made me cry again!
I was going to suggest pregnant too....

Ha, I better take that day off when I take the test, I can only imagine, taking a pregnancy test first thing in the morning....oh what a way to start out the day!!

I'm feeling a little better, today is the day when I'll know whether or not to take the test. Nothing has arrived yet (*tear*) so if I haven't gotten it by time I go to bed tonight, I'll go out and buy a test b4 I go to bed so I can take it tomorrow morning.

Good vibes PLEASE!!!!

You're going to worry until you know something for sure. Just hang in there, or the stress will wreak more havoc with your hormones. We're all here for you!

I know it's really scary when you aren't ready for a baby and the possibility of being pregnant arises. My only words of advice are listen to your body. I had my regular periods for the first two months, but I had other physical symptoms that alerted me that something wasn't the same. For example, I was soooo tired for weeks! And I don't mean just tired, I mean such a complete physical exhaustion that it was extremely difficult for me to get through the day of work and school. Also, I could smell everything! It was amazing, and noticably abnormal. There were also other symptoms, but really my point is to listen to these. You may just be having an especially unstable PMS episode (happens to the best of us!). But dont' wait too long. If your period doesn't come when expected, I know it's scary, but test! It's better to know ASAP so a plan of action can be formed and you can begin preparing yourself for what your future will hold.

I know it's scary, hon, but it's scarier not to know. I, too, didn't want to get pregnant (hubby and I had never intended on having children together), and had taken many precautions to prevent this. Nevertheless, the unexpected happened (guess there are statistics for a reason), and I didn't even find out until I was miscarrying. Hindsight is 20/20!

In the meantime, take care of yourself, and try your hardest not to worry. As Purity pointed out, stressing yourself about this uncontrollable issue will only hamper the oncoming of your period.

Keep us updated, though, okay? You are in my thoughts!

Everything has arrived this morning (I've never been so happy to get cramps before!!! ) I'm feeling a little better...not so weepy anymore, just moody (which is normal!)

If I'm still feeling weird by time everything is gone, I will still take a test...or do you think I should still take one? I am 1 day late, which is kinda odd for me but I figure that it could be b/c of the stress of worrying and such...

But in all, I REALLY want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has listened to me and helped me thru this, you have no idea how much this has helped me. Everyone here is so amazing, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!
