So... 5 days before your period would usually come is the general rule for "early" tests. Or day 23ish of your cycle? (because the "5days" rule assumes the average woman w/ her mythical 28 day cycle and O on day 14 - and we all know that happens to everyone -right? )

good luck!
Thank you! That is so long to wait, I'm going to go bonkers before then!
