TTC Month 1- testing on valentines day?

Postby PhDer » Thu Feb 05, 2015 9:44 pm

Hi all

I have an irregular cycle to say the least. Last cycle was 35 days(16 Jan) but is usually not that long- usually around 32-33 days but to be honest I have only started paying attention to my cycles. I used to think I was getting my period as I would get some mild cramping before my period. I now understand this is ovulation pain. Last weekend I had some ovulation pain and EWCM (which I had only learnt about a few days prior) and we had unprotected sex around that time.

I guestimate my period is due maybe around the 17th? This is a really rough estimate. My bestie suggested to test on valentines day as it would be a lovely surprise if it is BFP.

First time on this TWW and finding it tough. I'm a would rather know than not know sorta of person

Would people recommend testing on valentines day or leaving it a few days later? (After all, I don't want to get a false negative)

Thank=you everybody. I tested 8DPO and I got a BFN. That was two days ago. Yesterday 9DPO I had cramping and burpy nauseous in the morning only (went to yoga yesterday night and was fine). Today however (10DPO) different story, vomited whilst doing my makeup, once again in the bucket i took in the car and then four times this evening. Was originally planning on testing v day then I changed to Friday and now I have decided considering the symptoms will just test everyday until AF shows *but hopefully she does not!!

Thanks Yelibaby. Not feeling very 'positive' today.. literally. After the vomiting episode on wednesday I continued to feel sick into Thursday -just wretching but no actual vomiting but I felt awful! So I decided this is it going to do a HPT and was sure based on the vomiting it would be +ve. Nope... BFN! So I went to the docs and he thinks I have gastro! Today I have also had nausea and a very small amount of vomiting which I am taking my maxalon for- bad headache too. Took another HPT this morning and was also BFN. Meanwhile... continued abdominal cramping without a fever.

Kinda feeling a bit cheated that my body would catch stomach flu in the TWW period. I mean what are the odds? I have only had gastro a handful of times and it would have to be the first month we TTC! Seriously universe WTF!?

The doctor did say if the nausea continues into next week to come back so if AF does not arrive Sunday as is hoped I will be heading back mid/end next week to demand a blood test!
