I have to test for pregnancy first thing in the morning?
earlier pregnancy tests, it could only check for the presence
of hCG in the morning, when hCG was more concentrated in the
urine. And it was in those earlier pregnancy tests that you
often had to mix vials and test tubes to determine if you
were pregnant. Fortunately, times have changed.
When you are testing
at home, it is always best to use urine from the morning when
you get up, especially if your period isn't due yet, or is
only late by a day or two.
If you tend to
drink a lot of water throughout the day (which you should
be when you are pregnant), it is also best to test in the
morning, because water can dilute the hormone in your urine.
If you simply cannot
wait until morning, try purchasing a two-in-one kit where
you get two kits in the package, or by buying two kits. That
way, you can test when you get home, and then saving one for
the morning, if you do not get a definitive result.
