So my cycles are normally 26 days but the last one was 29 days. I am not a POAS addict yet, and I would like to keep it that way! It is too hard for me to see a BFN so I would like to wait until it is likely I would see a BFP if actually pregnant. Should I wait until CD 26 or 27 or 29 or what? I am at CD 19 right now.

As a side note, I got my OPK on Tuesday and so have used it two days thus far at lunch time. The first day there was an obvious line (but not as dark as the control) and yesterday it was still there but slightly more faintly. So that makes me believe I have had a surge-although not enough evidence to make a true inference. I also starting doing my temp and have done that for two days-both at 98.0. If this month isn't a success, I am ready to tackle next month!! (Almost looking forward to it...but don't remind me I said that if I see AF)

I would wait until CD 29 if you don't want to see a BFN just to be on the safe side. If you did O on tuesday (CD16) then at CD 29 you would be 13 DPO and you are more likely to get an accurate result then anyway

I agree. CD 29.

Or you could just be ridiculous like me and test every day from 5dpo and twist and turn the HPT squinting to try to see a line. Or anything whatsoever.

But if you can wait, definitely wait til around 14dpo You'll be most likely to see a positive if it's there!

Did another OPK at lunch and it was barely there at all! Continues to make me believe that I had a surge earlier this week. We did lots of BD around that time so I am hopeful.
