Should I test, slightly reluctant.

Postby twotolove » Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:39 pm

My hubby and I are in our early 20s, it's our 3/4 mo actively ttc but I have been discouraged in the past due to my irregular periods leading me to wonder "Will I be pregnant this month? Or are they just skipping around again?" They became more regular recently but i never know when they will decide to skip around again so I try not to get excited.I have kind of just stop getting my hopes up because it's no fun to continue to get the bfn, but I have no signs of AF this month and I'm a few days late, should I just go for it?

If you're late, I'd test! Don't get discouraged just yet! It takes healthy couples up to a year to conceive! Fingers crossed for you!

@babyprayin if I drank a bottle of water about 5 hours ago do you think my urine will be too diluted?

When in doubt, TEST! That's my answer to everything. :) Also start temping. It will give you a much clearer picture on your cycle.

Hi I'm back, I would like to thank you for the support, I tested last night around 8pm using First Response (non-digital), and I got a BFN. Although I expected that I must say I was disappointed & I told my hubby that it kind of feels unkind to do this to myself. And I wanted to just stop for a while b/c we have been not trying not preventing (ntnp) since around March/April but actively began secretly ttc as I said earlier about 3mos. I had no idea how painful/emotional this journey would actually be, thought about it but it's easier in thought than in reality. But my DH told me not to worry about it we will just wait a few days and test again, so I guess I will test again next week unless AF decides to visit. According to my app I'm 4 days late.

Southern belle I tried temping before but I am not sure how to do so properly, or if I am a good candidate. Do you have to go to sleep/wake up at the same time every day? & I would always forget to temp before I got up in the morning to use the restroom? Does that matter?

It does matter. You should set an alarm and wake at the same time every day and immediately temp before you get out of bed. It doesn't matter when you go to sleep as long as you get a solid three hours of sleep. If I wake earlier than normal for some reason then I'll use a temp converter for that day. Once you get into the routine it gets a little easier.
