Missing period and pregnancy test: when to take?

Message length 300 characters recommended

For my first child I took a test 3 days after my missed period and got a positive. With my second I tested 1 week after missing my period. I haven't got my period in 8 days & it's almost always on time. I am debating whether to test now or wait a couple more weeks. I probably will test before the 25th if it hasn't came yet.


I have gotten a early positive pregnancy test 5 days before my missed period. I was obsessed with taking pregnancy tests and took a TON of them.
