Still no sign? Thats GOOD!

Soooo...If you ovulated on the 18th that puts you on about 18 or 19 dpo doesn't it? If you read the small print with the preg tests it does actually say that although SOME women get a BFP on the day of their missed period (technically 14dpo) it is more likely around 21dpo (3weeks post ov) so you still have a major chance with every day that passes! I;m getting excited for you now!

Alittle quote from an article whilst browsing:

Q: How accurate are home pregnancy tests on the first day of a missed period?

A: An October 2001 JAMA article (JAMA. 2001;286:1759-1761) said the highest possible screening sensitivity for an hCG-based pregnancy test conducted on the first day of a missed period is 90 percent, as 10 percent of women may not have implanted yet. The authors estimate that the highest possible screening sensitivity of a home pregnancy test by one week after the first day of the missed period is 97 percent.
So Wednesday should give you the most accurate result right?
