I belive I'm supposed to have AF on the 7th or 8th of this month and I'm feeling either VERY hormonal (huge sore boobs, cravings) or I really am PG. I tested last night and then today and I'm still a big fat NEG! Am I possibly testing too soon?

I guess time will tell! But I've never done this TTC stuff before...it's always kinda been a surprise. So..any tips or advice on testing would help. Thanks.

Hey Julie!

Some people weait at least a wek before testing.
With this pregnancy, I tested on CD 30 (my cycle is usually 28 days) March 7th and it tested positive. I went 2 days later to the clinic and they confirmed it.

Ok..I'm assuming CD stands for Calendar days?? If that's the case...and I'm a 28 dayer too...I'm at CD 28 today. (I don't know why I tested on the 4th. Duh, Julie!!!) On my fertility calendar I typed in the possible dates of conception and it said I'm safe to test on or around the 10th which is Sunday. So...I'm off to the store for another test!

Great story Sarah, and Sandra. Thank you for sharing w/ me. ((HUGS))

I think the 10th is probably a good date. Gives your hcg levels a chance to be high enough to register on the test. Good luck! TTC is very nerve wracking!

I think I tested around the day AF was due with Kiera but it was neg. Then a week later I got a positive. I would wait a few days and test again.

Good luck Julie!! It's so nice to see you on the boards!

It's nice to see you too TAra. I've really missed you!!!!

Well...I'm a bit confused. I started spotting on Saturday. So...I didn't even get to test on the 10th b/c of the spotting. It's a very weird period if that's what this is. Just to be safe...I think I'm gonna go to the store and buy a test anyhow. This isn't anything like AF usually is. We'll see.
