I was due for my period on Feb 24th. I used a FIRST RESPONSE home test on Feb 19th and got a pretty good positive....

really??? woow...congratulations!!! but FIRST RESPONSE test is a urine test and not a blood test, right? this is amazing how early you tested positive. I am very happy for you!:)

i am now 8dpo...think i will test tomorrow morning just for the heck of it. I have absolutely NOOO symptoms though. Mrs Shelton, what were your early symptoms???

Yes, it is a urine test. A blood test can usually detect hcg in pregnant women somewhere between 5 and 9 days after ovulation. If you have a normal 28 day cycle this would be about a week -a week a half before your expected period. I would just try to hold out as long as you can. Blood test can be expensive, especially if you dont have insurance, even if you do, you still have to pay a co-pay and stuff at the docs office. I know it's hard but try to wait til at least 4 days before your period then try that First Response. Do you know when you ovulated? Do you chart your BBT?

Daynae: The only symptom I had was feeling bloated, and my nipples were (and still are) SUPER sore. I had a couple of pimples pop up on my face too. VERY UNUSUAL. I still don't have too many symptoms... I have a wave of nausea every now and then, my b___bs dont hurt... just nipples are tender. THE GIVE-A-WAY are the veins on my inner arms, and chest. Even my thighs... looks like a road map. This is due to the increase in blood volume. BABY DUST!!!! Keep me updated! Hope to see you on the 1st trimester board soon
