I feel inadequate...I'm in the healthcare field, in fact I'm a medical assistant/CNA and I work in a nursing home. I think I just need some reassurance. I've been pregnant twice. I have a 5 year old son, but for some reason, I can't tell if I'm pregnant or not or if it's too soon to take a pregnancy test. My periods have been running anywhere from 25-28 days. They usually last about 5-6 days. Well, my last period was 1/17/03....21 days after December's. It only lasted 4 days and wasn't as heavy as it usually is. I wasn't nearly as crampy or anything as I normally am. There hasn't been a lot of stress in my life lately. I've been going to the bathroom frequently, am constantly tired, breasts are tender (just the jar of walking down stairs hurts). With my crazy cycle, I could start my period any day now. Do you think it's too soon to take a test?
