I tested today using a clear blue rapid test and got a bfn however I am getting symptoms! I have 2 apps one saying I should of had AF Monday 25th May and the other saying she is due Friday 29th I haven't been using ovulation tests this is only cycle 2 of ttc! I have now ordered first response tests which should arrive tomorrow should I wait and test again in a few days and test again if still no sign of AF? Thanks guys this is all new to me

Hello lovely! I'm no expert but just from what I have been reading the CB ones are less sensitive so definitely get FR for say the weekend or next week if no AF? Good luck xc

Hello @Egg2020 I'm going to be using first response first thing in the morning cos I've had symptoms too. Today I've done nothing but cry. So emotional over stupid things. On Tuesday my boobs were itchy and irritable which I never get anyway even with AF. I had a slight bit of spotting which I had on just one occasion and have had nothing since. Had very mild cramping now and again too but nothing painful. I only ever get cramps after the moment AF arrives! She is due on the 1st so I'm gonna test first thing tomorrow and on Monday. I too have used clear blue digital and clear blue with lines but it dawned on me. They are only good to detect pregnancy the day before it's due, as it says on the box. They just aren't sensitive enough. First response is the most reliable from what I've read all over the Internet. Baby dust to you! 😊 ❤️❤️
