My Chart - What do you think?

Hi Ladies:

I'm out of town for work, but debating going to get a pregnancy test. Although possible, I would think timing of our bedding wasn't ideal to result in a BFP. But, then again, we were supposed to be avoiding this month in preparation for testing with my RE next month. However, I ovulated about 4 days sooner than I normally do, so...anyway, we thought when we did bed it was "safe".

So, I overlayed my current chart (orange) with my prior BFP charts (the first two (green/purple) were THB, the third was a miscarriage (blue)). I pinned them on ovulation/coverline.

Based on the chart overlay, what do you think? Is it worth a trip to the store? I'm only 8 DPO today, so too early -- but I could test in two days. I have gotten BFP on CD9 and 10 for all my other pregnancies.

What do you think?

Looks nice - but I am not a POAS pusher - I don't have the best history and for me just getting 2 lines on a test doesn't necessarily = a new baby, so early testing just makes it feel like I am waiting even longer to know that everything is okay.
8 DPO is a little too early for my liking.
Honestly I personally won't test until atleast the day AF is due, but I would definately wait past 10DPO......

How do your non-pregnant charts look? Mine never looked different until 12 dpo. How long are you out of town?

I am not a POAS person because I'm cheap and I really hate BFNs and not knowing if it means anything. My last pregnancy I started at 8 dpo because people here see stuff and I was having nausea. I still didn't see anything until 12 dpo but I made myself crazy in those 4 days because I was convinced I was pregnant based on my symptoms but the tests didn't say so. I then took several after because I had just had my loss and was paranoid.

Here is a chart overlay with my non-pregnant cycles.
The first two (green/purple) are the two cycles before my 1st BFP, the blue line is the cycle just before my BFP #2 (i was nursing that cycle) and then orange is current

Then I would definitely be tempted at 10 dpo:) Good luck. I hope you don't need the RE!
