I belive that i ovulated sometime between last sunday and monday. I Bd on sunday and tuesday. yesterday i started to get slighlty sore boobs which feel much more tender today, is it too early to test (only been a week). I only have two pregnancy tests at home and don't want to waste one or should i just do it anyway?

i'd wait normally u have to wait until at least 7 DPO for ultra early test, but normal tests u need to wait till the day of or b4 AF.

good luck.

Wait... The longer you leave it the more accurate the test. They're darned expensive those tests... You don't have to wait that long. Really. I tested DD1 when I was only 4 1/2 weeks pregnant and got a very definate result.

Just another thought (if you are thinking - grrrr - I wanted everyone to say "YES!") - if you ARE pregnant - it is unlikely you will get a + test at the moment, but you will still be pregnant IYSWIM with a - result and a wasted test.

it is prob too early to test. Even with very early tests that say 7dpo tends to usually pick up at 9dpo. A normal test would prob pick up from about 3 days b4 af is due.

meant to say i tested with this pg at 9dpo on ultra early test and got pos but got neg on normal tests day after. It was about 3 days later i got a pos on a clearblue digi.

I tested on a Friday before my period was due and got a negative. Tested again on Monday (period due day) and got a big, fat positive. So, I think it really depends on your body and how much of the pregnancy hormone you produce. I'd had a week of sore breasts and cramping, so I kind of knew I was, the ng test on the Friday really disappointed me, but symptoms got stronger and no period on Monday made me test again. Glad I did!

Hi , I am due to test on Thursday day AF is due, but do you think I should do a test today the waiting is driving me insane. I have no pregnancy symptoms saying that I have no AF arriving symptoms eihter.

Shall I test or wait, what are the early tests called?

I got a positive result 5 days before AF was due.

Boots own brand. It was 9 days after DH and I bd'd! Did the test for a laugh coz I was drunk and bored one night! We were going to start ttc after Christmas (this was November) so I stocked up on tests. Nearly fainted when the line appeared! dd is 9mths old now.
