I'm guessing I'm 5 dpo today. Ran out of OPK's before I got a positive one (started testing too early I think) - but all possible ovulation symptoms stopped last Thursday so I am guessing I ovulated on Wednesday.
I'm testing in 7 days, I have Exacto pregnancy test waiting for me at home (screaming at me!) but I just found out that Clearblue has these pregnancy tests that shows you how many days from conception you are IF you are pregnant.
Has anyone tried them? How accurate are they? If my Exacto test comes out positive I really want to try the Clearblue one since I am not 100% sure when I ovulated.
Yes, I've tried them. I've always had chemical pregnancies that don't progress pasta beta of about 100, sooner always said 1-2. However, I've seen many ladies have melt downs because they take them expecting to see a 2-3 or a 3+ and get a 1-2 then it turns out everything is fine. The sensitivities on the tests are not that good and beta results can vary so widely that isn't nearly impossible to date a pregnancy with betas.
8/13, 1/14, 2/14, 8/15, 10/15 - mommy to angels!
After 5 early losses we are cautiously expecting our second miracle!
I know they aren't as sensitive so definitely use a FRER first
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN
March 2014- BCP to clear up cysts
April 2014- IUI #2 on 4/9/14 with 3 mature follicles and 3 catching up! BFP at 10dpiui!!!!!! So thankful!!! Beta #1 @ 13 DPO- 167; Beta #2 @ 15 DPO- 384!
I don't know how accurate they are, so I wouldn't go for it just for the novelty of it. So... I would stick to FRER if it were ME. However, for you, if it is something that you'd like to have, go for it. I'd only do it if I was sure I was going to get a positive as well.
