@kw948103:  I didn’t use a FRER until 12DPO and got a very clear positive. At 18DPO it was even more clear. I have heard of some women getting BFP as early as 8DPO, but if you’re worried, I’d wait until tomorrow morning or Saturday morning (depending on when your wedding is). By then, it should show up.

Some people don’t get their BFPs at 10 dpo – I got mine at roughly 18-19 dpo.  I might have gotten a BFP a few days earlier but I decided to stop testing until then because it was heartbreaking seeing the negative.  Everyone is different so its best to wait as long as possible after your missed period.  Anywhere from 14-18dpo to ensure accurate results.  But honestly, it’s up to you!

I used a frer with FMU the day I was expecting my period. It was very clearly positive.

if your 14 dpo you should be able to get a postive now if you are. i would possibly wait til the morning to use FMU for best results.

I would go ahead and test now. You technically don’t need to wait and use FMU, just hold your pee for 4 to 5 hours and you should be all set.

The twinges you felt that woke you could have been late ovulation. I would give it a while longer before you test.
