As William Shakespeare once (sort of) said: “To test or not to test, that is the question.”
You have survived the dreaded two week wait and you still have a couple more days until it’s okay to take a pregnancy test. You really want to test early. Can it really hurt to test a couple days early? Let me make the answer easier for you.
DON’T TEST EARLY!
A lot of thoughts go through your head:
- If I test today and it’s positive, I can surprise my husband on his birthday!
- I had a really hard day and this is the only thing that will make me happy.
- Imagine if I test positive and I can surprise my husband on our anniversary!
All those thoughts are really great but only if the test comes back positive. If it comes back negative (like it typically does), your hubby’s birthday is now ruined and you can enjoy a mental breakdown instead of dinner and a movie on your anniversary.
Whatever you do, don’t test early. Just hold onto hope for one more day.
