No there aren't really. My husband was a phlebotomist for 13 years, so he knows how to draw the blood and prepare it to be used as a home test. Basically you use the same test that you would use for urine but you place serum from the blood on it instead. It has been so helpful to me as I never get positive urine tests with my miscarriages. It would have been extremely frustrating having all the symptoms but not knowing for sure and I would hate to be running in every month to the clinic to be tested.

Oh, and Shawna you are right about the early signs. I had mucus mixed with my blood the last day of bleeding, then it changed to blood mixed mucus.

I don't think I've ever ovulated this early before, but then cycles for me have been few and far in between with all the children. The earliest I can remember for a cycle length would be 28 days, but I'll even go as long as 45 days.
