Take my schtick with a grain of salt, since I pee early and often 🙂

I would test with FMU and a FRER on the 28th-ish, then again on Halloween if it’s negative.  They usually come 2 in a pack so if the first is negative I’d just try again.

@BellaDee:  It’s going to be more accurate if you wait until AF is actually late, but I’ve met so few Bees who have the sheer will to hold out that long!  Good luck 🙂

The only day you had sex with any chance of fertilization was 10/17. So yes, there is a chance, as you had unprotected sex, but it’s a slim chance.

I also agree with PP – wait until the 28th or so. Even in you are pregnant, the chances of it showing up before 10DPO is really really small

@BellaDee:  It is never worthless to TTC. I’m sure your DH wouldn’t mind the extra hours “on the job.” Give it a go, why not?

I thanked my DH for all his tireless dedication to the job of TTC. I know it must be hard on him, all that sex and all. He laughed. 😉

@BellaDee:  BD tonight because it’s fun, not to make a baby. I fully believe you still need to do it because you WANT to 🙂 But, as your last cycle was all kinds of strange, who knows when you ovulated, so BD all the time can’t hurt (and it’s fun!)

 

I would REALLY recommend that you start charting. I find it eases my mind SOOOOOO much. I know what my body is doing and that it is doing what it is supposed to be doing. It takes 2 minutes each morning. I know people say it’s stressful, but it actually RELIEVES stress for me because it takes the guessowrk away – I KNOW I ovulated. I KNOW when I ovulated and thus how many DPO I am and when to test.

In normal, healthy women, the chances of getting pregnant when TTC within the fertile window is about 20-25%. It’s never worthless to TTC, especially since you don’t know for 100% certainty that you are outside the FW. Good luck.

I’d hope for the best and start testing every other day at 12DPO!

@BellaDee:  BDing (or baby dancing) is a great term for doing the deed other than TTC which I find to be more general.

I agree with Glasgowbound that the only day you stood chance of conceiving was the 17th which is a slim chance but still a chance.  It’s better if you BD every day or every other day during your fertile window.  I definitely think it’s too late to conceive this cycle but you can always practice for next time.

As for testing, I wouldn’t test before the 29th or 30th but if you can hold off until the 31st, you have a better chance of the test being accurate.

@BellaDee:  If it makes you feel better, take prenatals and don’t worry about drinking until you see the pink (or blue) lines.  A friend of mine had no idea she was pregnant (she was NTNP by default since she came off BCPs) so she was partying and smoking cigarettes until around month 3 when she finally realized she might be pregnant and took a test.  She stopped as soon as she saw the positive test and her child is a gifted student with no health issues.
