I'm 6 days late and have been TTC. Plus I've been feeling slightly ill.

DH wants me to wait till the weekend. My cycle has been erratic since a miscarriage last December and just thinks I should wait a bit longer.

But I want to know.

Is there a physical reason to wait longer or could I do one today?

Ay least wait until the morning so the hormone, if present, will be stronger in your urine.

6 days late! You are tough, I would definitely have tested by now!

Buy 2 tests. Do one in the morning if the one today doesn't show.

Ok. I'm off to the shop.

6 days late?! You have patience of a saint!

miraclebabyplease Mon 25-Apr-16 12:50:29

Blimey! I used to test early!

almostthirty Mon 25-Apr-16 12:51:15

Well....--taps foot-- we're waiting!

When I was TTC 2 days late would be enough! No harm in testing now except it is horrible when it comes back "not pregnant".
Hope it's a positive result for you.

I have 3 DC, and starting to get broody again although another would be v stupid for us atm, as we are moving temporarily to another country. So I'm living vicariously through other people's babies and pregnancies which is not weird at all... .

I hope you get the result you are after OP!

I'm pregnant!!'!!!
According to Clear Blue digital I'm 3+ weeks!

I'm delighted and nervous (2 previous miscarriages). Already have a toddler as well.

Congratulations!!! flowers

Helgathehairy Mon 25-Apr-16 13:07:26

Didn't think I was 3+ already. Although looking at dates it is possible.
