Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

That is the question!!!
I am not due on until sunday yet this past week I have had every new symptom under the sun!! I promised myself I would start waiting until the day AF is due until testing to try and save me heartache (and money as 48 months of testing lots= expensive!!! )
I have an overwhelming urge to test in the am but then know in my heart Im probably not pregnant after all this time and then Ive lost the hope if that makes sense!!
PLus all this is going on in my head and I should actually be writing my school reports!!
So what do you do? POAS early or wait???

How many dpo are you? I too have promised myself no more testing, but we'll see how I fair when I'm drawing near the end of the 2ww! If you're a good amount of dpo I would poas, just to see. You're going to drive yourself demented wondering otherwise. You never know! I have my fingers crossed for you x

I would POAS, i did atleast a week before AF was due and got a really clear positive. If you don't then you will be symptom spotting even more. Atleast you will know after you've done it. You can put your mind at rest. Good luck x

How many dpo are you? Do you have an early test ie one that would pick up 10iu of hcg (most only pick up 25iu) superdrug early tests are good. I got a positive at 9dpo on a superdrug test.
You need to think how disappointed you'd be with a bfn, I never minded really because I always expected bfn and tested with opks from 7dpo anyway so it was like a ritual. If you get a bfn today though you won't know its def a bfn because it could still be too early.
I'm a poas addict so I usually tested from 9dpo with a preg test but the bfns won't give an accurate answer.
Do you temp? What are they doing?

Me personally....I would wait until the weekend. I've never tested on a weekday as I'd rather have time to celebrate rather than dash off to work. I appreciate I might have slightly stronger will power :-)

Thanks everyone I'm 9dpo, i have got some ic tests which are early testing so i think i will do one tomorrow although both tmes i got bfp i didnt get them until couple days after af was due. However other of them ended in mc. I am a bit of a poas addict as well but wonder if this is just fuelling my obsession with having a baby if that makes sense.
never really got on with temping as got so confused as whether I was doing it right, ie moving too much and taking it at the wrong times however I am tempted to get a clear blue digital thingy as on other post.
It's ttc never gets easier does it!!

personally I wont test before 10dpo. I do try to wait for AF but always cave and test early. Every cycle I say that I am most certainly NOT testing early then I end up doing it. For me, I'd rather see a BFN than not know at all. Its the waiting and wondering that gets to me. As long as I know the answer I'm fine. Even if its bad news.
See how you feel in the morning. If you want to test I say go ahead. If you can hang on then fine. I got my BFP at 12dpo and I think I might have got it sooner if I'd tested as the line was fairly strong.

If i were 9dpo i'd test. I'm due AFsunday ish and i'll probably POAS from tomorrow because i'm addicted to it!! It's ridiculous because i've had 3 BFPs and never earlier than 12dpo. With P i got days of BFNs before a BFP at 13dpo so i know i won't be disappointed.
Test in the morning with FMU and then you'll be 10dpo which is very acceptable in my book!

Thanks everyone, I'm sure I will be testing n the morning now I know I'm oral- well as normal as the rest of you!!!
Oh god that's meant to say I'm normal not oral!!!
04/06/2013 at 22:05
I always wait until I'm actually late. Good luck if you test tomorrow though!

Maybe that's where I am going wrong. Negative this morning, but I'm holding out hope still lol
05/06/2013 at 07:25
Sorry it was negative this morning, hopefully it was just too early to test. Fingers crossed x
05/06/2013 at 07:54
Sorry it was negative. As Figaro said, maybe still too early xx
05/06/2013 at 07:56
Sorry it was negative. But atleast you have got it out of your system now and you can wait until later on in the week - i have everything crossed for you xx
05/06/2013 at 08:50
Sorry it was negative but others have said it could be too early to tell. Fingers crossed for the weekend x

In all the years we've been trying I have only ever tested twice, enough to put me off evert testing again until I'm over a week late, that crushing feeling when that line doesn't appear isn't worth it, strangely enough I find it alot less disappointing when AF arrives. Sorry it was negative x
05/06/2013 at 15:44
I agree CL! So not worth the disappointment of no line or even worse: the words 'not pregnant' - crushing! I'd rather wait although I know not knowing is a head screw.
Hopefully you were just too early! X
