Hello. : Hello. Pregnancy symptoms can begin at the time you first miss your period. They can include some of the symptoms you are referring to: breast tenderness and swelling, widening girth and nausea or vomiting. Additional symptoms can include: lack of period, moodiness, increased frequency of urinating, headaches, insomnia, feeling tired, passing gas, just to mention a few. If you took the urine pregnancy test before you missed your period it would probably not be positive yet. Most women take the test at the time they miss their period. Sometimes, even if a woman is pregnant, the test shows a negative because the HCG titer is too low to trigger the test, i that case, it can be retaken a week or even earlier. Take care.

Agree with Dr. F: You may take the home test again in 7-10 days, unless you you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. Wish you good health.
