To test or not to test?

So I was due on AF on 20th April which was 4 days ago. I was so anxious and stressed because I ran the London marathon yesterday (can't believe I'm saying that) so put my lack of period down to that. I have been getting period pains and had them during the marathon too but still absolutely no sign of AF.

Did some ic's and all bfn. My question is, do I hobble out to the shop and get a better test or do I wait for my body to calm back down again and see if my period arrives?

What would you do?

If I were you, I'd put myself out of my misery and just buy a test to know for sure.

I had period pains around the time it was due. And all the other usual stuff too ...bloating, sore boobs, overeating, feeling emotional etc. It was only when 5 days past by and still no AF that I did a test and found out that I was pregnant! All the initial symptoms were exactly the same as when I was due my period.

Well done on the marathon! x

Oh rose how exciting! Go buy a test. If you've been following my thread you'll see these IC are not reliable!

Massive well done on the marathon!! xx

I could only hobble to Sainsbury's so had to make do with those tests. Thin line came up but it's basically invisible and probs Evap, will test again with fmu.

Thank you for your replies and thanks for all the lovely words! Can't believe I ran a marathon still feeling v surreal

There's definitely a hint of a shadow of a line on that test!
