Should I test?

So it's been 29 days since the start of my last period (my first in over a year after getting off BC) - and for the last week and a half I have been super tired, kind of feeling sick (not everyday though) and my boobs are soooooo sore - they are small but feel swollen and when I run up/down the stairs I need to hold onto them because it hurts! I can't even sleep on my side or stomach.


SO - my BFF is convinced I'm preggo and my mom says it's my hormones sorting themselves out and I will get my period again soon.


It's so stupid - I could just test and get this out of my head but I know deep down it will be negative and I really don't want to see a negative. If I don't test I could still hold onto the feeling of what if... how stupid is this???

Oh, boy do I know that feeling! That idea that you may just be pregnant sometimes is worth holding onto! If you think you can wait, I would wait a few days. (I wouldn't be able to)


When AF started again for me I always got very sore boobs like you are describing for about 2 weeks before AF showed. However, when I got my bfp they felt the same way. I also feel tired, and at one point was throwing up every morning, and still was not pg.


Do you have any idea if and when you ovulated? If you know, that could help decide when to test.

I'm such a sucker for testing - i sometimes wonder if I help keep those stupid test companies afloat. I would never be able to wait to test but if you can, wait a few days and see what happens... I'm with Dana, do you know if/when you ovulated?

I have no clue if I ovulated. Because this was my first period in a year, I didn't want to get my hopes up that I was 'fixed' and start temping and using OPKs again (as I did previously when I got off the pill). Its very likely it will be negative but I guess stranger things have happened! And I'm going to see my friends this weekend and I know wine will be involved so because there is a chance, the right thing to do would be to test before the weekend.

Such serious willpower! Everything is crossed for you! Wouldn't it just be awesome if you could get preggo after your first period?!?! Keep us posted....

So I decided that I would test yesterday but I started spotting so I didn't as I knew that was the start of my period - that's how it started last time and I was right as this morning it's full strength! So a 34 day cycle, not bad considering it's my first real cycle in 12 yrs! My husbands away for 2 weeks so I have already warned him that when he gets home it's baby making time! I can't believe it, my periods seem to have returned. It's about time!

Boo to AF! But yay for a good length cycle! That's great news for TTC. Baby dust to you (and go have a big glass of wine!)
