Hoping somone can offer some advice. My husband and I have been TTC for 5 months, with no luck so far. However, I just have this feeling that maybe this is the month. I’ve been charting ovulation and based on that calendar I should have ovulated on Oct 24th. Conception dates could have been the 20th, 23rd or 24th of Oct. The ovulation calendar says to use pregnancy test on Nov 3rd. I’ve always heard you are suppose to wait 2 weeks after intercourse before testing. Question is: should I test on Nov 3rd like the calendar says or wait 4-5 days for the full 2 weeks?

I would test – a lot of the home pregnancy tests are very sensitive these days so it might be able to detect a positive (other bees with more experience may know from their own experience). I would test just out of curiousity! And a lot of tests are sold in double packs so keep one for later if you don’t get a positive. Very exciting! Hope you get the BFP (as they say!)

You can test up to 5 days before when your period should start on the most sensitive tests. Read the boxes – they will tell you. Then, if it’s negative, do it every other day. If you are pregnant, the hormone levels should be doubling, so it will eventually be positive. Obviously, every woman’s levels ramp up at different speeds, so it could end up needing to be a more sensitive blood test. Good luck!

I voted to test at the earlier date, but it has nothing to do with anything. In all honesty, how will you be able to wait the full two weeks when there is a chance the result could come sooner?? 🙂
I would not be able to wait!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would test on the earlier date because I’d go crazy not knowing! And I’d get one of those 2 packs because if it comes back negative, just test again a few days later to double check. 🙂

Logically, I would wait the full two weeks. In reality, I’d test ASAP. Waiting? When you might find out sooner? Now, if the cost of the test is an issue, hold off. Otherwise, go for it.

Two negatives. 🙁 I read a lot of good reviews about a product called PreSeed. I ordered it yesterday. I know it’s not a miracle remedy, but I’m hoping it can improve our chances even a little bit. Anyone else use this?
