if anyone knows? I thought I read somewhere 4 days from conception and if I am pregnant it will have been 5 days, so if anyone can clarify, I would be most grateful

ive got one here somwhere(cant find it) i thought it was 2 weeks after conception, 4 days does'nt sound enough. the one i used from wilko's was the same as poundlands and that was 2 weeks.

I found the poundland test still didn't work 3 weeks after my missed period - I found them to be rubish!

I used them 2.5 weeks after conception and got a positive. Had used a boots one 2 weeks after and it didn't show. Would definately use them again first next time.

Hi, I used pound shop test two days before i was due to start and got a positive. It did take the full 3 mins though for it to appear. I tested today with clear blue to be sure and again it was positive.

Thanks KemalStilletto, only very early days yet, only DH and I that know at the moment, was only due to start this week so only just preggers. This will be baby no 4 so I dare say that the family will think we are bonkers, but we don't!What about you, whats happening with you? any news!

aww, you'll have a busy house with 4 children!

I am going to buy a test on Monday afternoon definately and will update that evening after I get in from work!

In fact, just thought my town centre is open on Sundays so might pick one up tomorro if I'm not too busy but marne said she thinks it might be 2 weeks from ceonception and mine will only be 6 days, so maybe too early to test?

May be a little early, but fingers crossed, will keep checking this thread. Will be 5 children in house as my DH's son from previous marriage lives with us too, ages 11,9,8,and 14months at the moment!! mad! but happy!
