Kind of wondering..

I'm kind of wondering if I should take a test or not...I took one a few days ago...maybe Saturday or Sunday I think lol...I just thought if I took one and it was negative then I could feel pretty sure that AF was coming and I could be done with this particular wait that's been so uncomfortable. I really haven't entertained the idea that I might be pregnant at all because we only DTD like 4 times and I have no clue when I O'd or even if I O'd and I've been so sick and just got the impression our chances for conceiving on our own were pretty crappy. So I've just been going nuts waiting for AF so I can get these tests done and see what's really going on and get on with it. But...I thought I'd start yesterday and I didn't. So I was sure it'd be today and I haven't...it's almost midnight so we're on to Thursday now.

Thing is I'm not really sure when I should consider myself late. More often than not my cycles are 28 days. When on Clomid they were all 31. This is my second month off of Clomid and last month it was kind of between 29-30 days. It started near midnight and so I just counted the next day just in case cause I doubt it flowed until then anyway. So I figured this month it would be closer to the usual 28 days. Well yesterday was 28 and today was 29...so should I test tomorrow or should I test Friday if I don't start? I keep thinking I have...having a wet feeling but I haven't spotted yet.

I just don't see how I could possibly be pregnant. It just doesn't seem likely or possible for this month at all. I mean I don't really O without meds enough and plus the possible endo/candida issues and the lack of BD'ing...seems really unlikely. So...anyone want to weigh in on when I should test? Smile

UMMM... My vote?? Don't test!!!!!!! I try not to test every month.. then I do.. then Im depressed... I just like the *thought* of possibly being pregnant a littttttle bit longer.

PLUS, I think it'd be way better to find out AFTER a missed AF- then you dont have to stress about "Is AF coming?!?!"
Sooo I voteee... Saturday!!!!!!!!!! Smile

i don't see why you think BD only 4 times is bad? This month we were only able to get in 2 sessions and I still think i could be. it only takes 1 sperm! I personally would test but I don't get all that upset if I see a neg... there is just always that chance it could be pos Smile

I'm with Cait, Saturday sounds like a good time if AF still is a no-show. Now I also know that is much easier said than done because if it were me I'd be testing non-stop lol.

Thanks so much ladies and I was totally going to be a good girl and wait until Saturday but I woke up with AF this morning. Lol. I figured if I posted about it, I'd probably start. Seems I'm more of a 30 days girl now. That's interesting but maybe a good LP sign unless I ovulated later or something. Either way. Yay AF is here and we can get this fertility stuff going. Doing blood work tomorrow and then going to the RE on Monday to have the exam and ultrasounds done. I'm nervous about results and all but ready to have this stressful chapter closed and to start a new one where we have more hope again...hopefully. Lol. If they say things are terrible and there's no way I can have a baby which I doubt...we'll go ahead and pursue adoption so either way seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

It feels so good to get real answers, even if it's bad news. But, of course, I hope the RE has some good news for you!
