question re sensitivity of early pg test

background info :
i've been having sharp twinges for days and had slight bleeding yesterday which has stopped. am due on in 3 days. to bleed 4 days early is unheard of for me. am regular as clockwork.

i tested on saturday (too early) blush with first response, then today with a chemist's own brand early test, but didnt use the frist urine of the day, as it said i should blush

now, i know i'm being a foolish over this testing business, but would there be any point in going and buying a first response test today?(as i feel the the one i just did 'doesnt count' as i didnt use first urine). am i right in thinking that you dont have to use first urine of the day with first response?

I didnt get a positive until a week after I was due, something to do with me having a late implantation, something like that lol so dont be too put off if you still get a negative (I tested with clear blue)

thanks themighty. i am finding myself feeling quite anxious, tbh, cause if i'm not pregnant, then i've certainly got some sudden odd gynae symptoms that i need to get looked at.

i am so annoyed with myself for being over zealous with the testing, but cant seem to resist.

If you only had implantation bleeding yesterday then I'd imagine there isn't a hope in hell of getting a positive yet.

I'd order a pack of the cheap sensitive ebay tests, they sell them in packs of 10. They'll arrive in a day or two and knowing they're on their way will help you be patient.

summer, is that right? i didnt realise. am very new to TCC as i have 2 older dds who were conceived without effort (am v lucky) so dont really know much about the more 'technical' points.

The most likely reason to bleed slightly before or around the time you were due on is implantation, I only had it with one of my three and it was a tiny amount of blood but same as you I had a bit of twinging for a day or so before. As I hadn't had a period yet since having dd I assumed it was returning but when the period never got going and I started getting preg symptoms.....

Good luck smile
