We haver only been TTC for a couple months now and everything I notice that’s different I think is a sign of pregnancy. For example, my boobs are HUGE and very tender but they also sometimes get this way a week or so before I start my period. There are other things that could be PMS or pregnancy symptoms so I need your help convincing me to NOT take a test for another 2 weeks. The 17th is the day I should start going off of the LONGEST cycle I’ve had just so I don’t think I’m late and just test early. Can anyone help me to NOT test yet?

Testing now, based on your cycle it’s only going to give you a negative result. It will be sad and depressing to see the not pregnant, or only the control line.
DON’T DO IT!

@bride21: OK I’ll try to convince you not to test:
save your tests!!! you don’t want to be disheartened- wait til you’re officially late!
don’t read into anything! convince yourself it’s PMS.
If you have boxes and boxes at home, give them to your husband so you’re not tempted!
OK, hope that helped 🙂

Just think it’s almost like throwing away $5. It’s way too early to get a positive and when you get a negative you will be sad even if you are really pregnant.

Thanks ladies! I know it’s no good to test now but my mind keeps telling me that it MIGHT show positive and if not I can buy more with my discount and a $2 off coupon I have.
@roxy821: $5 a test is pretty crazy to waste it…if only there was a home remedy instead of having to buy them all.
@lilybugg78: I only have 1 test at the house right now and it’s screaming to be used. I’m trying not to open the drawer that it’s being kept in but I keep thinking of other things in there I might need. This is sooo hard!
@mwitter80: I know you are right but, dang, why does wanting a baby so bad have to make me impatient? lol

I want to test so bad it’s driving me crazy! I havent started yet but I want to wait until Wednesday just to be sure I’m late since the 17th will make it the longest I’ve gone without AF showing up. I keep telling myself to wait but I almost tested this morning because I am 15DPO and wanting to know really bad. My boobs are still sore and really heavy but still no other signs of anything. Normally they would stop hurting 2-3 days before I start so I’m not sure why they are still sore and last time I was pregnant I had no morning sickness until the night before I tested. The sore breasts were my only sign before that pointing towards pregnancy. Why must it be so hard to wait?
