Should I test?!?!?

Hey ladies! So I'm 11 dpo today, tested 9dpo bfn I know it was too early but I couldn't help it : / haha. I have long cycles so my AF isn't for another 8 days. Should I test today at 11 dpo or wait a couple more days till AF is 6 days away since that's when most test can detect a BFP!!! I feel like I have had some symptoms but who knows if its AF or my head playing tricks on me! My boobs have been unusually sore and feeling heavy( im only an A cup) It was painful just to walk around yesterday felt like they were throbbing. I do usually have sore boobs before AF but not this painful. I'm just trying to be hopeful that this is our month! : )

Test will not register positive until your hcg register 60 So I would wait. A false neg could cause you to get upset and for no good reason.

My LP is 16 days, so if it were me, I'd wait until 14dpo.  But that is just based on having tested every couple of days from 10dpo until AF arrived for a few months and realizing I was driving myself crazy.  Since I've waited for 14dpo or even all the way to 16dpo because I didn't want to know.  Although, last month at 14dpo it was BFN and I didn't bother to test again - I knew I wasn't pregnant and just waited for AF to arrive.  Again, this is for my own personal mental health and what I've found works best for me =)


FX that you WILL get your BFP no matter when you test!

@claire- the wait is killing me but I'll wait a little longer! : )

@murph- first of all congrats on BFP and TWINS!?!?! So crazy and exciting!!!! I honestly never get my hopes up when testing but it would be nice to get that BFP! Think I'll wait a couple more days.

Took a test this morning still negative. Have been having AF cramps for a couple days on and off. I thought this was going to be our month with the extremely sore boobs, feeling somewhat nauseas at times but I guess AF played some tricks on me. I know it still could be positive but I'm doubtful at this point. I expect AF to make an appearance with in a couple of days. I'm just feeling discouraged at the moment not sure if we'll even try next month. : (

Oh honey!  We have been trying 4 months now and still nothing.  We likely won't even be able to get a BFP next cycle because of DH's fever - we have to wait for him to make new swimmers.  I know how hard it is - but I try to remember that you can do EVERYTHING right and you still only have a 20% chance of even getting pregnant each month - that really isn't a lot.  Hang in there - we are all here with you!  *HUGS*

Aww, try not to get discouraged. I know it's hard and you feel like giving up, but if you don't try, it DEFINITELY won't happen. After we were so disappointed last month, I decided this month to focus on something else besides TTC. We're still trying, but I'm focused on stripping the wallpaper in our living room and painting both in there and in the kitchen. So far I think it's working. I still think about trying, of course, but I'm not obsessing over it the way I did last month. Maybe tackeling a big project of some kind would help you too?
