A blood test will come back positive sooner than a urine test, but most home pregnancy tests say they can pick up right around the time your period is due. So you could possibly get a positive HPT today or tomorrow but you should definitely get a positive blood test at this point. Good luck!

I agree, if af is due TOMORROW...test today!!! Get one with a light sensitivity...like 25mu/u or whatever 25! I know that First response is that low and maybe walmart equate brand is? Oh, and the answer tests are that low too.

DO IT NOW!

I would go get a hpt and see what it says. Some of them can tell that you are preggo when AF is due.

For some reaseon I don't get positive pee tests. I was 10 weeks pregnant with my first when I found out I was pg with her. The blood test came back + but the pee test I had taken 2 days was - .Same with the second I miscaried that baby but with dd#2 I did not even waist my money I just do the bloodtest from now on.

The blood test could already come up positive for you - doesn't take much. I think if I remember right they say to wait until 7dpo for blood draw, but it may be able to tell earlier. Let us know what happens!
