Post subject: Do the early tests work?
I new to the forum but from what ive seen the advice sounds fantastic, so hoping maybe you could hlp!
I had a mc earlier this year and started to try again last mnth, due on on saturday but for the last week ive jut had a feeling tthat im pregnant and my chest has been really tender and i really want to know (Parnoid im imagining it all just because i want to e too) but i dnt know whether it is worth buying one of those tests that say can detect 5 days early or not incase it doeant work, has anyone had any experience of whether they do?

Welcome to the fourm Hellsbells
If your going to test early the test I would say do is a First Responce test, you can get them from boots and they cost about £10 for two tests.
I hope all works out for you chicken.
Quick question, when was you MC, I had on on the 1st April 2008?
keep in touch and let us know who you get on

Firstly sorry about your mc- hope you are managing to get through it.
I had a mc at beginning of april, and started trying strainght away. Last week I did a test on Tuesday ( af was due Sat) so quite a few days early, and I got a BFP. So for me it did work. I was feeling pretty rough- light headed etc so tested. Obviously is depends on you levels of hormones, but if you get a negative, doesnt mean you not pg, might need to retest few days later. I used the new first response test. followed by a mixture of clear blue and first responce.
good luck honey! Hope you get a BFP!! xxx Baby dust xxx

Hi Pup! Thanks for asking......
Well made it throught the weekend- phew!! No af thank goodness- Have been testing everyday like a woman possessed! and now the positive appears almost instantly!
Still feeling light headed on and off and cant stand the smell of fish fingers been cooked! lol!!
Do you think I should ask doc for an early scan- Im just so paranoid and the 12 week scan seems ages away! argh!!!
Hope you are well and had a good weekend xxx

I spoke to the doctors last week cause like you we have been trying again after the MC and she said the it I was PG then cause of the MC they wpuld arrange for us to have early scans, infact she said I could have 5 scans throughout the whole PG period - whcih is good news.
Im sure that if the test comes back with a BFN (which it sounds like it will) then the NHS will let you have an early scan - if not more than that!!!!
