When should I test? UPDATE: Is it still possible?

To make a long story short I've never found out that I was pregnant until I was around 6 weeks, but I think I may be again. I don't chart, but we weren't preventing this month. All I know is my LMP was was January 19th. Is it too early to test? It's freezing rain here and I don't want to drag my girls out in this weather if I don't have to.

Update:
So I tested with a digital this morning at 12 DPO and got a BFN. Is it totally out of the question that I could be pregnant?

How long are your cycles normally? Evenif you have a perfect 28 day cycle and you ovulate on day 14, you would only be about 10 dpo now, which is really early to test. I would wait until Sunday at the earliest. Tuesday 2/16 would be when AF would be due (assuming 28 day cycles) and testing Sunday would still be early. If you tend to have short cycles though you could test earlier; long cycles test even later. GL!

If you last period was on the 19th of Jan, assuming that you have regular cycles and ovulate on the 14th cycle day, that would put you at about 11DPO. 11DPO is still kind of early to test but if you use a sensitive test like Fact Plus, Answer Early, or First Response you will probably get an answer.
If you wait about 2 more days then it should confirm it for you. That's IF you have regular cycles.

For First Response Early Result out of 2,439 test the average day post ovulation for + test:

Faint + 12DPO
Standard + 12DPO
Strong + 13DPO

Of course there are many positive before 12DPO but that is average.


If you go with a super sensitive test then you could get a positive today. If you are actually patient unlike me then you could just wait. I pee on any and everything, I cant wait

Re: When should I test?

Thanks! I have a very regular 28 day cycle. I've been feeling kinda run down this week and just thought it would be a nice V-day surprise for dh. I guess I'll wait until Sunday!

Your barking up the wrong tree woman! Most of us are test pushers I have seen numerous + at 9dpo! So of course my vote is TEST, TEST, TEST

It wouldn't hurt to test especially if want to surprise DH for v-day!

I would wait until Sunday to test (as long as a BFN wouldn't mess up V-Day for you). Best of luck and I hope you get the answer you want!

Not totally out of the running... some baby's take until day 12 or so to implant. I would give it three more days, test again if AF hasn't shown, and that should be your final answer.

I agree with Lori. You're not out of the running yet!
