Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Should I take another pregnancy test or wait ?

1 answers
Had sex on and ovulation day (December 21) and my period was 1 week & few days late, when it came it was very light and shorter (5 days) than my usual cycle (7 days) so I took 2 pregnancy test which came back negative , I lately have been having back pains, I been having really bad gas, my breast has been sore here and there and even been a little constipated but im never really tired and havent been feeling sick. I'm really confused on whats going on with my body & I'm scared to take a test and its not the results I want.. Do I wait for more signs or should just try another test

You can wait a few days and take another test. But, if you did get a real period, it's likely that you aren't pregnant. Usually a test that is taken a week past your expected period will give a reliable result.
