Okay... Long story short, the other night my DH and I had the same dream on the same night - that I found out I was pregnant again (I have a 3 month old). That in itself was very bizarre... Well, that got me all up in arms and now I am taking every odd little symptom I have or feel and running with it... That, and my DH keeps rubbing my belly and saying "Is it growing?" LOL

So .... with light cramping, bloating, fatigue, dizziness, feeling hot ALL the time, feeling ravenous and then getting sick at night ( last night I actually thought I was going to toss my cookies... ) and some strange CM...
And my hubs being a butthead and teasing me, I went and bought an HPT from Walmart. The Equate brand.

I know, I am a goof. But hey, can you blame me?!

My AF is not due until the first week of September, but I wondered how soon I could get an accurate reading if I took the test? Do I wait until I am actually late (if that happens)? I've never dealt with HPT's before, I found out about my son through a mandatory urine test by my gyno... If I took it now, would the reading even be correct?

Annie, your sig is so cute.

It depends, really - do you know when you may have conceived? I'd wait at least another week to test, because it may or may not be effective just yet.

My husband always seemed to know I was pregnant before I did. He would start joking about it and it would turn out that I was lol.

I'd get one of those early detection tests and test as soon as it says you can. I know I am always impatient when it comes to testing, I have to do it ASAP lol

Thank you!

If I was pregnant, I figured I'd be just about three weeks along now... I think. I'm confused!
I'm patient, I can definitely wait it out and see what happens...

LOL! Funny thing is, Nathan knew about Connor before I even suspected it. One night while sitting in bed watching tv, he commented on how huge my breasts looked and about something else - I cannot remember, it was a year ago now! - and said "I am willing to bet money you are pregnant!" I kept shrugging it off, then my urine test said he was right! He keeps telling me now he bets I am pregnant again, so I am up in arms this time! LOL!
