When to Take a Pregnancy Test


When to Take a Pregnancy TestThis is the month; I know it is... it has to be! 

How many cycles have you felt this way?  It is during these months that the two week wait feels like a two year wait!  It is also during these cycles that it is so hard to know when to take a pregnancy test.

I know that I have to wait for at least 7-10 days past ovulation so that I have given the embryo time to latch on to my uterus.  It isn’t until that happens that the hCG hormone is released into the body.  It also isn’t until then, that I even have a chance of getting the two lines or the word “pregnant” on my pregnancy test.

I tell you though, when I feel like my breasts are swollen, I feel really tired and I am craving certain foods.....it is SO hard to wait to test!

I am 10dpo, i have a 28 day cycle, the first day of my last period was 4th August 2012,i ovulated on 16th,i had unprotected sex on 16th and also two days before and after.
Since 1dpo,i've been having lower abdominal cramps, rise in body temperature,breast tenderness. And on 9dpo,i noticed a drop in my temperature for the whole day.
I'm so anxious, will i get a positive if i go for a blood test today?

hi, Ive been "trying" for two years. I had all the work ups done, my husband got his jizz tested, but no luck. He deployed this year so we werent able to try, but I am going to start clomid when he comes home.
He came home on R&R 3 days before I ovulated this month. I Ovulated about the 4th, on the 16th I had cramping ( I NEVER really cramp, and never when it isnt that TOM) then two or three days in a row I had terrible heartburn, like, band around your chest, hurts your back, go throw up heartburn, that would go away suddenly later.
I took a pregnancy test on the 19th, and on the 20th, both negative.
Im trying really hard not to get my hopes up but I THINK I FEEL pregnant....
what do you think? Am I?

TTC for 7 months now and no luck yet. My husband and I have sex regularly and every month we get sad when my period shows up. I pinpoint my ovulation with opk and monitor my cervical CM. My husband had a sperm count test done and his quantity and motility is fine. The only thing is the quality or morphology. He has to go for another sperm count to see if his sperm morphology change. I just got my period. Good luck to other couples
