Yes you are right, and when I tested it really would have made no difference. Its just a way to make us feel more sure about the results, lol.

The morning pee contains a higher build up of hcg things.. Its best to wait a few hours before testing, and never drink loads and loads to make your self pee cause that will dilute it and possibly give you a false negative.

I tested in the afternoon, cause I had to get x-rays at the dentist and I had been really sick for about a week. My period wasn't even due till the next week and it came out pos right away. They say to do it in the morning cause you haven't peed in a while a the hcg level is higher in density but really most pregnancy tests are so sensitive now that you can really test anytime.
