How long is your LP normally? I wouldn't suggest testing for 4 more days if you aren't sure. (otherwise, you just might get depressed if it comes back a BFN, and it could be wrong as it might be too early)

If you don't know how long your LP (luteal phase) is you should wait 14-16 days past ovulation to test. By then you know you are likely late. If seeing BFN's when it is possible you are just testing early does not upset you, many people start testing at 12 DPO (so at least two more days to wait.)

It seems sooo long to wait doesn't it? My rule (after seeing a few BFN's so far) is to wait at least until the day after AF is due. And in the meantime drive myself crazy till it is.

I agree. You could test on Monday and don't worry, if it's not positive, just wait a couple days and try again. Good luck!

Thanks for the info...I am normally (at least the last few months) on a 29 day.....so I think I will test Wednesday morning and see what happens....I am freaking out and once again keeping those fingers crossed....

On a side note, how does one make a fancy signature like you all have...They are so nice!

Thanks,
Jade
