Question Taking the preg test

Yesterday I asked whether or not it was safe to tan while pregnant and I got a few replies telling me I need to quit until I find out for sure. Im 4 days late now, so if I take the test, is it soon enough and whats the probability it will be right? Im planning on taking one tonight

4 Days late is a good time to take the test. You can take it with your first morning urine if you're not satisfied with tonight's results. Good luck!

Make sure you don't drink lots of water before you take it because that could dilute the hormone. Try not to urinate for about four hours before you take it so that the urine is as concentrated as possible. (This is if you're taking the test at night.) Good luck!

I assume you mean in a tanning bed right? DO NOT TAN in a tanning bed if you think your are pg. it is very dangerous. good luck with your test.

Yes I mean a tanning bed. As I said yesterday, I go tanning about 3 times a week and I was worried that (since Im late) it could be harming a possible child. I know I need to quit tanning until I find out, but (as dumb as this may sound) I just dont 'feel pregnant' My breasts arent sore, Im not tired, in fact I feel fine. If anything, Im a little sore down there, but I was assuming that was just from intercourse.
