Experts believe more than 10,000 women will be taking pregnancy tests tomorrow morning, making tomorrow the day that more women find out they are pregnant than any other time of the year.
This date falls just two weeks after the ‘National Baby-making Day’ on January 2nd, which has been dubbed the most common day of the year for couples to try for a baby.
It’s also been found that 62% of mums-to-be will carry on taking pregnancy tests, despite already having a positive result, leading women on average to spend £30 on pregnancy tests.
As simple as it might sound, pregnancy tests are actually more complicated than they sound. It’s worth noting, if you take a pregnancy test too soon, you might get an incorrect result. Leading pregnancy test company First Response said that it’s early result pregnancy test detected the pregnancy hormone in 76% of pregnant women five days before their period was due, but in more than 99% of women three days before their period was due.
Pregnancy tests work by measuring the levels of hormone hCG in urine, and these levels vary from woman to woman. Depending on the pregnancy test, you might be pregnant but get a negative result as you don’t have enough of the hormone to get a positive result.
