    By my calculations today puts me at 11DPO and its CD40 for me. Ovia tells me that I should test tomorrow- I estimated that I have about a 40 day cycle so tomorrow would technically make me a day late but being irregular that is just a best guess.

    Question is, do I test tomorrow? I suppose its the DPO that would make sense to follow rather than be overly worried by the CD. I dont want to write it off as a negative if I have tested too early but also dont want to be leaving it longer that I need to should a miracle happen and it be positive

    I have been having cramps or pains in my ovaries for a week or so and been spotting on and off since 5DPO. There has been very slight nausea for just 2 days and quite bad backache. I am already quite convinced that AF is just hovering on her broomstick

    I can't help myself testing early so I would also test today. I actually fine it less disappointing if AF arrives and I've already had a negative, I think it softens the blow a bit.

    I'm the opposite. I would much rather wait and see if AF shows up before I even contemplate testing. If it comes out negative then I would just be telling myself that it I could still get a positive later.. if it's positive it'll still be positive when I test later. I definitely don't test too early as then you run the risk of getting excited and then having a chemical. Plus I don't like throwing money away when I can find out for definite a few days later!

    I had gone to bed and already woken up and had my first wee before I got any messages! Its pot luck when I might be late for AF or when its gonna be another 96 days crack so I am torn because I am really hoping and wanting it to be positive but I have never seen 2 lines ever and want to so badly. Equally I understand why I should wait to test to see if AF appears, I do hate to waste and expensive FRER just for it to be a BFN

    I'm really bad, I tell others to test early but I'd never do it myself until AF was late. God knows how many chemicals I've actually had.

    Did you test this morning? Xx

    Yeah I did, BFN :( I thought if I were pregnant a Home Bargains test would pick it up so I saved the FRER. Seems the nausea, dizziness and headache crappy feeling isnt due to a baby xx
