We’ll if you are, a test would certainly show it by now. It’s up to you, would you rather see a BFN or keep hopeful until AF arrives? But those symptoms sound promising! (If it were me I’d test!!!)

emmanneliza:  personally i would wait until 15DPO.  Seeing the negative is heartbreaking, and waiting a few days wont matter really would it?

I keep a bunch of cheap wondfos on hand (well, they came with the ovulation strips) so I figure might as well use them up even if it’s for disappointment.   I start testing around 12 dpo.  But if I had to go buy a $10 FRER, I would just wait for AF.

emmanneliza:  I would test (with a cheapie). I would want to know. IT would hurt if it was a BFN, but I would rather know than wonder.

I think you’ve already come this far, just give it another day.  Some people (me) can’t even wait until 9DPO even though reality is that’s just too early to have a true answer.  If by the end of tomorrow AF still isn’t here, pee on a stick at any time you’d like and you’ll have a definitive answer.  Unless you O’d REALLY late.

I’d wait, but that’s just me. In fact I had some great ‘feelings’ as well as different symptoms the month I got my BFP….but I still didnt test until AF was 6 days late!

Good luck.

emmanneliza:  Buy two tests, and if the first one is BFN, retest tomorrow morning with the other!  Or get a FRER since they’re more sensitive and come two in a pack anyway 🙂

In my experience, by 13dpo, it didn’t matter if I used FMU. As a matter of fact, this time around I got a very dark BFP at 14dpo with just a trickle. Good luck!!

emmanneliza:  I’ve heard you can replicate FMU by not using the bathroom for about four hours, and not drinking more than you would normally

I would totally test, but then again I don’t think I could’ve waited this long to begin with. Maybe try a dollar store cheapey for now as others have suggested!

emmanneliza:  🙁  I’m feeling pretty down right now too.  I tested yesterday at 33 days with middle of the day pee.  It was negative, so I went to the dollar store today and picked up 4 cheapies.  I will test with FMU tomorrow if AF doesn’t come by then.  I’ve been feeling EXTREMELY hungry this week.  For example, at 1pm, I had a full veggie sandwich and a bowl of soup and I am still starving.  At 2 I had a granola bar, and I feel like I haven’t eaten all day.  WTF!!!!!!  Is that a sign of pregnancy?  Breasts are sort of tender, I’ve been peeing a lot during the day, but not having to wake up in the middle of the night to go like I did with my first pregnancy (miscarriage.)  So annoying.
