new to ttc...trying to get my dates right

Postby mommylo » Tue Feb 07, 2012 3:16 pm

I have a question n I hope I don't sound stupid asking it lol I got my period jan 28th and I used walmart brand opk and got a positive on Tuesday jan 31st and a stronger positive on feb 1st. When should I test for pregnancy? I know my cycles r short so my period is expected before feb 28th...Maybe between the 21st and the 28th. I think I'm 7 dpo today. I know the smart answer is to wait til I miss my period but I know I can't wait that long!

WOW, I have never known a CD3 or 4 ovulation. I wonder how common this is. I think you should test starting 8-9 dpo at the earliest. The OPK's are positive 12-48 hours before ovulation, so I'd bd as soon as positive or when it's starting to look that way so the sperm is waiting for the egg. Then begin testing 9 days after positive sticks.
