    I'm not sure what to do been Ttc since feb, I had my implant removed on the 2nd then 28days later af arrive, the next cycle was 28 days then the next two were 30 days. This cycle I had strong ovulation pains which I do every other month and going by that it would mean it's a 28 day cycle which means af is due tomorrow. I really don't want to test to early as I keep getting disappointed.
    Anyway what I'm trying to say is how does everyone keep busy so they don't cave and test, I can't walk my dogs they are limping from yesterday's walk lol x

    I'm on cd 23, also same cycle length as you, and I'm trying to not test too! I'm not due AF for another week!
    I'm on nights which helps - but also meant to be on a night out tomorrow night, so may test then with a frer...

    I don't want to see a bfn but I also need to know! :wall2:

    I know my husband asked me if I wanted to have a drink tonight so I kinda want to test but I also don't want to see the bfn. If my cycle length is 28 days then I should be due af Sunday not tomorrow but then obv if it is a 30 day cycle I've got longer to wait, it's all so annoying x

    I always took the oposite aproach. I bought 100 cheap tests and started taking them when I knew it was way too early for a BFP. That way I wasn't expecting a BFP to start with anyway and wasnt putting on my hope in any particular day. I'm a bad influence for someone trying not to test though :).

    Now Bunny has given me ideas lol!

    I seem to have lost any symptoms I was focusing on - cramps, loss of appetite, etc. So now I don't 'feel' pregnant I may be able to wait a bit longer...although I do have this night out tomorrow....

    I've got loads of tests in my cabinet lol, and lea I seem to have lost all symptoms, I was trying not to symptom spot but I had cramps then a weird sort of stretching pain, a funny taste in my mouth, loss of appetite. I've managed to refrain from testing today so just gonna dingy the drink for tonight and try my hardest to wait. Xx

    The only thing I can tell you is your temp is normal, how long are your cycles? X

    So you would have ovulated round about the 19th ish, do you use opks? There's a chance you could be I dunno if it would be to early to test, that's why I'm leaving it as long as I can so I don't get disapointed at another bfn. X

    Yeah I would wait if you can, and I have vivid dreams all the time so I wouldn't know the difference. I'm trying not to symptom spot and staying off google as I'm not a fertility expert and don't want to kid myself into thinking I'm pregnant and then getting disapointed when a bfn appears x

    I feel your pain Darcy, so hard to keep away from those tempting little tests! I'm way too early to test but can't stop symptom spotting and thinking oh a wee test won't hurt! (and also laughing at your use of the phrase 'dingy the drink' cos all our non-Scottish ladies must be like whaaaat does that even mean!) x
