Mrs2014bee:  Definitely! I took one this morning knowing I wasn’t but I’m a glutton for punishment!! When is AF due? I wouldnt use the digital until AF is late because they are actually not that sensitive and even if you are it may not show up on it.

Mrs2014bee:  woah!! That’s a big wait! Do you know when you ovulated because you can be pretty sure you’ll get a positive test 12-13 days past ovulation. If you don’t know then I’d say pick up a cheap test. Don’t waste the digi!! It’s quite possible you haven’t Od yet it your cycle is so long btw..

I tested because I’m going out tonight and because I’m starting clomid next cycle. I want to pick up the drugs because most pharmacies are closed on Sundays here! 

Hope you’re having a ball on your honeymoon 🙂

Mrs2014bee:  

oh my gosh for probably the first 4-5 months we started TTC, i constantly took HPT’s early because i was convinced that i would get a BFP!! 

without fail, AF would arrive the very next day every time!  i spent a lot of money of HPT’s (since i’d always double up just in case!) and then i’d turn around and have to buy tampons right after lol. 

enjoy your honeymoon! xx

Yes, I am a crazy early-tester.  I decided that for now it would bother me more to not know as soon as I could (as in, if I got a positive test, could have gotten one yesterday?  that thought would drive me nuts).  I did buy a big pack of wondfos from amazon though, they are so cheap that I can test to my heart’s desire without feeling so guilty for wasting money.  That said, I think you really are too early, especially to use a digital test.  Also, remember that if you test early (or really any time) a BFN means less since it could just be too early.  Good luck!

I’ve taken a couple HPTs when I knew I was anovulatory. No surprise they were BFNs.

I think it’s all about your attitude. Will it upset you to see a BFN? Or will it give you peace of mind to know for sure?

I havr and got a BFP but my situation was different as I was vloser to my next cycle. I was charting and afyer month four we decided to take a break off that month and did nothing for pretty much the week of fertility.

I was 8dpo, three days before AF was due and had about 20 minutes to waste. I was at the store already and decided to buy a cheap dollar brand test to kill time even though I was certain even if I was the test wouldn’t show yet and doubted I was anywsys by the BD timing.

I had to pee anyways which is why I went ahead and got the test. I took the test and plain as day it was a positive. 8dpo, no BD the week of fertility, three days before AF, cheap test and third urine of the day. Clear as day positive, I’m now 38 weeks and being induced on the thirteenth 🙂

With you too.. I just recently got off birth control 2 weeks ago and started TTC and idk why but I just bought a PT and said negative.. I’m so weird but I guess it’s because I’m so excited! lol but anyway i guess I have to wait until May 16 to see if I receive my monthly friend.. i don’t even know if my period is going to be late being that I just recently got off BC pills. But I still had a chea. pT that I bought so id use that, and if it read positive ill Forsure buy a clear blue. 🙂  I CANT Wait!

Mrs2014bee:  This month I took some HPT right after AF. Just because it was a weird a short AF. I even used one of my FRERs. So I guess I’m even worse than you!! I must have read the same things than you.

I think every woman in the history of the world has taken (multiple) HPT’s when there’s slim to no chance of being PG. I know I did when I went off BC a year ago because my period stopped for 2 cycles… even though we were using condoms (correctly) every time!

Mrs2014bee:  Oh yes, many many times. That’s why so many of us get the internet cheapies. You can pee to your hearts desire and not feel bad about wasting money. Now feeling bad for a BFN is another story altogether.

I have had a few times being bad with BC pills and thought maybe.. and tested to get a negative and my AF after a few days.. I learnt before TTC not to bother.. plus unless i skip 2 AF then i would test.. i dont want to get my hopes up to much..
