Time of Day for HPT?

Mon, 11-02-2009 - 1:57pm

Does it matter what time of day you take the test. I know they suggest the morning, but would it be okay to do it now?

DH is coming home from work with one and I really don't want to wait until tomorrow morning...I am going nuts. My last menstrual cycle was September 4th. Also, I have a lovely, sweet 5 month old...I need to know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks, needed to vent (and an answer).

Sorry about this ticker...don't know how to turn it off:

Hi-


It's recommended that you test in the morning because that is when your urine is the most concentrated.

Hopefully he'll bring home a 2 pack so you can test now and in the morning. LOL. My LMP was 9/9/09 and I've known for weeks that I am pregnant so if you have regular cycles and your lmp was that long ago it shouldn't matter when you take the hpt b/c your hcg will be sky high.

Hi,

Took the test yesterday afternoon and it was negative.

This morning, after I had gone to the bathroom (of course), I was brushing my older daughter's hair and became extremely nauseous. It passed. Later mid to late morning, I was holding the baby, playing, and had a big wave of nausea hit. I put her down and ran to the bathroom. Threw up a little bit (sorry if tmi). I told my husband, and we have decided I will test again tomorrow morning.

Well, not BF because of surgery right after having baby. Yesterday, I was kind of disappointed...not that I want to pregnant again at my age...just I don't know... Well, this morning I started planning in ernest either a Disney or cruise vacation and feeling good about things and now I don't know what to think. So, I hope I get an answer tomorrow morning. I hate going to the doctor if I am not pregnant and it is just age. lol

Thanks so much for your answers and interest. It helps more than you can imagine.
