Hey all,

I signed up today, after searching for pregnancy tests online and catching a thread from here on Google.
I have a (nearly) 3 year old daughter (29 May).
The problem is, I haven't come on for a while. Last month and the whole of this month so far. Im usually regular if not one week later than the last one was expected.
My bf brought a Clearblue Digital which said Not Pregnant the other day.
I did it in the middle of the day without really needing a wee.
I had a m/c last year April-May and am nervous to really find out, not so much nervous, scared.
Should I buy another (but a lined one) or should I wait and see what happens (sickness/period)?

Buy another test. You will only worry otherwise. Get one that has a pink line rather than a blue one as they are more accurate. If it is also negative it might be worth seeing your gp for a blood test just to be certain.

Good luck! I hope you get the result you want. smile

Buy another clear blue digital and do it in the morning first thing. That should give you a pretty clear answer. If really in doubt a trip to the GP wouldn't go amiss, I think their tests are more accurate. Good luck!

Thanks Hetty,
As part of being indecisive I told myself the first post on this would decide it for me! lol, I know it sounds silly but I really didnt have a clue what to do for the best! But i can't get one from anywhere now lol, pharmacy's shut. A trip for tomorrow i guess...

@1teaandsomecake: ty will be doing so, prob not a clearblue, its so expensive for a shiny plastic case!

Don't worry, clear blue told me not pregnant 3times and I knew I was so I bought first response and came up I was! Good luck thanks

My doc said clear blue digital and first response are the best and most sensitive so I would buy another of those if I were you and test first thing in the morning. Good luck and let us know x

Clear Blue digital are NOT the most sensitive by any stretch of the imagination. I think they're 20-25 miu.

Internet cheapies are 10 miu and I think FRER are 12.5 miu.

First Response worked for me, good luck!

I had three negs with 2 blue dye tests and a clear blue. Had 2 VERY clear poss with 2 pink dye tests - turns out i'm having twins grin so how the other tests missed that I do not know! I will be telling all my friends to get pink dye tests if they ever ask.

Good luck! Superdrug own brand tests are good and relatively cheap.

So I did two (blue dye) tests that were neither cheap nor expensive, around £10. Did them both in the morning times and both are negative.
Still no sign of coming on, my usual period symptoms are off on holiday it seems and my usual pregnancy anger and irritation are on 'critical - do not approach this crazy lady'.
I think the last day of the last period was sometime in very early April, making me around 5-6 weeks late.
Im concerned whether there's something wrong since the m/c last year, a few people have speculated about ectopic pregnancy and I'm just stuck here in 'Period Limbo'.
As much as I'm being shoved to go down to the DR's, I'm hesitant to go through more routine bloods, pee and whatever else they'll want from me this time over. When I think my head knows they'll just say Im not pregnant.
>feeling hopeless<
