Personally I won't test until AF is late, but that is me. I know some women test as early as 10 DPO, but it can still be very early. I think if I were to test early it would be 12 DPO if my chart looked really good (i.e. wasn't going downward at that point). Good luck!
I would say really try and wait.
Me and DB have been ttc for 18mths now
and this cycle i have already tested 3 times
and AF is only due today!!!! will prob be late now
just to add to the delights of this nightmare!!! Lol.
I tested at 10dpo and also 2 days ago and today.
If AF stays away i will test again on thursday
and finally on xmas eve if still dont show.
I have become a POAS addict and its not good.
I am upsetting myself all the time by doing this,
So my new years resolution is to only POAS if i am
a wk or more late as i cant take the constant one line
and my eyes are real sore trying to burn a 2nd line onto the tests
Good luck hun
Waiting for god to bless me with my 1st child when the time is right.
Poor Ladybird.. I hear ya though. Once you start POAS for the month, you can't stop until she shows. Especially for cost issues, I would try not to test until at least 14 DPO... BUT.. since Christmas is coming up I might cheat and test at 10 or 11 DPO since that will be Christmas!
Expecting #1: 10-5-06
DPO will you guys test???
Is 10 dpo too early?[/b]
The first two months of TTC I tested early and last month I just waited since it just makes it worse knowing before AF shows. This month I am on the same page as you FutureNCMom and test on Christmas since that will be about 2 or 3 days before AF is expected.
I always plan on testing a day after AF is late, which would be I think 12 DPO, or 11, I don't remember anymore. LOL. AF always arrives on time on the DOT. She's due to arrive next week, on Wednesday, so if she's a no-show, I'll test Thursday morning. I have a feeling she'll show, my DH and I really didn't try this month, but who knows. Good luck to all.
