all the signs of pg - tests whats the best to buy?

I typically have a low level of hcg. I guess I'm trying to test early cause I never get a + till I'm 6-9 weeks. I've had really normal every 10th cycles for 5mn. So I'm 3days late.

My boobs hurt, I'm nauseous, threw up, dizzy, emotional wreak, crying at nothing, freaky strange dreams, low back pain, peeing a ton, so tired, craving foods.

So is one EPT better than another? Or I'm I pretty much stuck waiting?

BTW this was/is so not planned! It was 1 oopsy at the wrong? right? time. We use condoms because of my allergies and reactions to everything else. We want/wanted to wait till we buy a house in a couple years and then try for 1 or 2 more. Isn't that how it always works?

They have been having Evaps on them. Also where you can see the line before you ever pee on it. But you can tell it is an Evap b/c it will have NO color HTH

Re: all the signs of pg - tests whats the best to buy?

That's what I have too :-( , just took one got a bfn but I have almost all the symptoms you do and the ONLY other time I've ever felt this way in my life was when I was pg. With dd. I guess I will go get an equate, I saved my morning urine in a cup this am so I could just dip the test, is there a time limit on how long to keep the urine out to use it for a test?
