Recently I was advised by my obstetrician to ‘wait until two weeks after you miss your period, do a home pregnancy test, and then call for an appointment if it’s positive’. This got me thinking, that means I will have to wait FOUR weeks from my suspected date of ovulation in order to test? Ooh, I am not a patient person! I did, however realise the wisdom in his advice, since I am a seasoned pregnancy tester (I know some of you out there will relate!) and thought I will explore this topic a little more. Those of us fortunate enough to plan our pregnancies, and anticipate a positive result can be somewhat prone to wanting to know IMMEDIATELY whether we are pregnant or not.
