Preg testing: Does it have to be the first wee of the day??

Hi all, new to this and I've just been out to buy a pregnancy test. Just wondering, since they are so expensive and I don't want to waste it using it wrong, is it better to only test using your first wee of the day or doesn't it matter? Do you think you are more likely to get a false negative if it isnt the first wee?

I don't know much about these things grin

It's just sat in my bag waiting to be used.. I really don't think I am preg to be honest, I'm a couple of days late but don't have any symptoms or 'sense' anything.

Depends how early on you think it might be. If only a few days/weeks then best to use your first pee of the day as it a more concentrated so you're more likely to get an accurate result.

If you are already late any pee should do. Hcg will be stronger with first urine but more important really when testing early. So POTS (pee on That stick)

If you're a couple of days late, you should be OK to test now.

Thankyou, I POTS and it was a BFN sad Not sure how I feel. Its weird isn't it, I've tested before when I Really didn't want to conceive at that time and I still felt a bit disappointed when it was negative. That single line just looks so lonely somehow..

Exciting to test, but a bit of an anti-climax :/ Ah well, its definately for the best in my case. I'm a PhD student!

Oh I feel really shitty and empty and lonely inside. This sucks. What a rollercoaster. Feels so horrible sad You think you may be about more than just you, and then you are left with nothing but loneliness and sadness. What a fool to even put myself through the emotions. Somehow must shake this sadness and get on with my day

Aww Lolly sorry you're feeling disappointed and lonely, try to treat yourself a bit

I cant stop eating! Have a history of EDs and have just ended up having a massive binge I couldn't control. So distressing being out of control like that and unable to stop. I'm going to get out the house now.

How're you doing today lolly?

Hi Mogz, thanks for checking in on me. I'm okaay, feeling a bit fat (!) But tomorrow is gym day so hopefully my mood will lift more with the endorphins and fat burn ;) I'm fine about the bfn, I think I will always get that disappointed feeling as I've been broody for the past 8 years x

Isn't it a strange thing that even when it's not something you're trying for getting a bfn feels so horrid?
I'm sure a day or two of eating silly stuff won't have done you any harm, enjoy the exercise high and the sunshine... If it bothers to show up at all today, bloody useless forecasts!

True Mogz, you feel horrid and like you have failed somehow? I did have a nice exercise session thanks. Although today is not much fun as I am indoors trying to write an essay whilst my other half is off playing with friends! I'm well behind my schedule so this weekend is all about catching up a little I'm afraid! Not much time to be broody ;)
