How many DPO should I test??

It has been 6 years lol I don't remember how long I should wait before I test... I am so nervous- I just feel different this cycle. I am getting weird abdominal sensations that I remember having with my other pregnancies. I am only 6dpo but I am getting the testing itch because of feeling so strange (yet familiar!). I don't want to test too early.

Thanks!!

Realistically, I'd say 10 days. At 6 days, you may not have even implanted yet, though that strange feeling might be implantation. But like Asha said, if you use cheapies, you can test as early and as often as you like. Good luck!

Thanks, I got a dip in my temps today and I hope it is a good kind of dip! If my temps go back up tomorrow, I may test Sunday. Cross your fingers for me!

That's promising. It's just the right timing for an implantation dip! Fingers and toes crossed for you!!!

Well my temps went back up today. I KNOW I am only 8 DPO and I shouldn't be testing but I couldn't help it! I bought the FRER $$ one too that is up to 5 days before period-- BFN. I scanned through FF's gallery of BFNs turning to BFPs and I don't feel anything but dumb for testing so early... It's good that my temps went back up and I won't test now till hopefully 11 DPO (with cheapies)...

Thanks, I am spotting a tiny weebit when I wipe now and again (sorry Tmi) but with my last 2 pgs I spotted from implantation until 9 weeks with Charlotte, 6 weeks with Josh- so it doesn't worry me yet. Waiting drives me bonkers!!!!

Spotting at 8 dpo is a good sign. I can't wait to find out!

My temp went even higher! I took a dollar store cheapie today and I am sure everyone would say it's negative but I swear I see the shadow of a line in dimmer light. DH says i am nuts. Maybe an evap??

Well I am not out of the game yet!!

nice chart! And the dollar store cheapies (the pink ones) don't have evap lines. If you can see it, it's there. I'm so excited!
