My periods are very irregular. frm jan to feb it was 28 day cycle frm feb to march it was 28 day cycle frm march to april it was a 37 day cycle. i use my days app.
I ovulated on 4/28 and it says i should start my period 5/17. Should i wait till after the 17th to see if i start or not? That seems like forever and a day.
Im kind of stuck. i think if test before and get a BFN i will be really upset. either way i will be upset. i dont like this.

It is sooo hard to wait until you miss your period to test. I never do...I make it till about 7 dpo. But it is hard to see those negatives. I say...if you can wait, then wait. But if you have the urge to test early and get a bfn, just remind yourself that it is early and you aren't out till the witch shows! Good Luck!

I agree! It is SOOOO hard to wait but SOOOO hard to see those bfn's. I think because some women get bfp's super early, we tell ourselves that might be us too. But odds are, even if you were preg, you wouldn't get a bfp until closer to missing your period. I'm just entering the tww and already have that feeling I always get - it's like when you're on one of those rides like power tower or tower of terror and you're just sitting at the top waiting and waiting for the fall. Anxious, excited, scared, impatient, angry that dh dragged you into this predicament once again

If you test, let us know!!! GL!

I agree, it is so hard not to test early. But I personally wait because I hate being disappointed with a bfn. I would rather wait til when AF is supposed to show up or have her be a day late before I test. I know that is easier said than done. I have my fingers crossed for you!!! I hope that you get your bfp this cycle

I think testing before af comes is a jinx for me anyways. a couple of times i thought i might be pregnant because i was obsessed with any little thing i felt. lol. so i would go out and buy a hpt and i would take it and literally the second after i take it and wipe Af is there! I think that was the most upsetting. it happening like that. im just going to wait it out(:
