So this question is NOT about if I am pregnant or not, I was already answered that on a previous thread.
Here I would like to ask about taking a pregnancy test. I am very afraid that I am pregnant, but I am going on a week-long family vacation on the 24th and the soonest I can take a test is the 23rd (I might take it the 22nd, I don't know how much a DAY is going to change anything?). Anyway, I need some advice: should I take the test the day before I leave if I might be pregnant? I don't know if having a definite answer would be a good idea if it's positive while I'm going on vacation with my family, because maybe a little doubt would be helpful, but at the same time, if it's a negative, it would save me a week of needless worrying. Basically, I'm just worried that I would ruin this vacation if I got a positive right before I left. At the same time, I don't know how much fun I'll have with the constant worry that I MIGHT be pregnant on the trip. Argh! I don't know what to do! [Frown]

This is not a question we can answer for you - it is up to you to decide what you feel more comfortable with.

However, if you would like my opinion, I think that in general having the definite answer from a pregnancy is very likely to bring some peace of mind.

Yes, I was just asking for some opinions! And thank you for giving yours. I would be open to more opinions, as well.

I'm with Joey on this one, I'd rather know as soon as possible rather than be wondering for longer. Whatever the result, for me, the unknown tends to be a lot scarier.
