Doing vague TTCing, what would be DC2. Havent had much chance for shagging but I know when I ovulated (get ovulation pains), and we dtd the day after, and had DTD coincidentally two daya before.OV. I.dont know my cycle length, lutal (sp) phases etc as with DD we justDTD every other day and fell pregnant in the second month.

My period should be starting at the start of the month but as I.dont track it yet, it could have been due up to two days ago or could still be two days away.

Im at a wedding tomorrow, so.potentially could be drinking lots and lots of gin so am.tempted to test but even if BFN, I suppose it could still end up a BFP in a few days....

What to doooo......

The important thing is ovulation date, no matter how long or short the cycle, if you ovulated and are not pregnant, a period would be due 14 days after you ovulated... Most tests even the cheap ones will pick up a positive result 2or3 days before the period is due, although the line may be quite pale... If you anticipate a wild weekend of drinking, probably a good idea to poas before. As it is early in the possible pregnancy, don't wee for 4 hrs, then test! The wee will be stronger.

So in theory I might not get AF til Sunday then....which could make it too early to POAS.

I had a pee at 8am and havent been since, but have had a cuppa - not sure if that affects result?

So, 11 days post ovulation now? That is early to test but not impossible.
Wedding is Friday?

If you want the reassurance- test tomorrow morning (don't waste money on expensive first response, IME the cheap ones will also pick up early positives, just look for a colour line, possibly showing up towards the end of the "read within" time (might say, 10min, 30min, it varies).

If the test is negative, enjoy your weekend- if the potential baby hasn't yet implanted and started producing hormones, its not taking nutrient from you... So shouldnt be affected by alcohol.

It's fine to drink something, but if you go for 4 hrs without peeing it will be more concentrate - don't drink gallons or you won't last 4 hrs!

In fact, you have already lasted 4plus hours grin

Felt a bit queasy the other day but had pigged out.

Last month I was manic symptom spotting but turns out it was preAF symptoms. This month I have no symptoms of any sort.
