    @carpedieming:  I voted that you should test today but I think you should hold off until tomorrow and use FMU.  Do you have any cramps, symptoms?

    @carpedieming:  Test tomorrow am but don’t be discouraged if it is negative.  I’ve had several close friends who haven’t had a BFP until several days after AF was due.

    I am not sure why everyone says to test first thing in the morning.  In the directions on the First Response box it specifically says that it doesnt matter the time of day or if it is your first urine of the day.  Your first morning’s urine is usually more concentrated, however if you are pregnant, the line is not just going to not show up just because you’ve peed a few times already.  


    I say hold yourself for a few hours and test this afternoon.  Since your period is due today, you will most likely get accurate results.  Good luck!

    I say test today.  Just don’t be discouraged if it isn’t positive.  I had several negative tests before a final positive and I KNEW I was pregnant.  Also let us know!  Good luck.

    I think you should wait a few days I didn’t get my BFP until 14 DPO.

    ETA: In response to the “if you period is due today you’ll more then likely get accurate results…” Not entirely true. I tested at 11 DPO which is when AF was due (I charted for an entire year) and still didn’t get my BFP until 14 dpo.

    @BearyLovely:  That is true.  But sometimes when it’s really early in pregnancy FMU can be the best. When I was first PG I barely got a line b/c during the day I drink all day and my urine is diluted easily. The next morning my line showed up really well.  I think it can depend how much someone drinks and all sorts of things.

    OP if you can hold your pee for a 4 hour hold and not drink a bunch of water then you could test tonight with a FRER 🙂

    @carpedieming:  Sorry to hear.  Hopefully AF won’t show and you get your BFP in a couple of days.

    @carpedieming:  Sorry to hear that. I would suggest waiting a few more days, perhaps 3 more if you can. Good luck!
