Im totally stressing about when to test!

First of all, I read from online pregnancy websites that your luteal phase, not stress determines when you get your period. With that said, I'm stressed and my period ins't here yet. First day of my last period was July 19.
We made love on CD13 and 14 and 19. I normally have 27-30 cycle days. And I normally have spotting a few days before I get the actual flow, but there's nothing.
I used my last HPT (digital) Monday on CD 28. BFN.
So now it's Wed. afternoon and it's about to storm. Wondering if I should go get a test now, or wait til tomorrow. Or wait til Friday? IDK. Help! Been TTC since May. So funny, cuz this is the last month we decided to try before we wait for 2 years to try again.

  • Sounds to me like it is way to early to test. It has not even been a month since your last period. I would wait a good 2 more weeks befor you test again.
    Good luck!

  • Friday EARLIEST.

    Are you charting your cycles? Check out The method there WORKS. I wasn't gobs of money on ovulation kits, then tried this method and got pregnant FIRST TRY. And we only had sex ONCE in that cycle.

  • I would wait until you miss the whole cycle and are on your way to the next. That way, there shouldn't be any question or all this stress.

  • Buy multiple tests and test every single day if you want.......

  • I'd go with Sherribeare, get a bunch of tests and try everyday. Or today, friday, sunday if you wanna save a little money. Are you guys going to go back to trying not to get pregnant or just not trying to get pregnant, because I've heard so many people say that when they stopped worrying about it things happened. :-) Good Luck!

  • According to my Fertility Friend chart, my period was supposed to start on yesterday or today. If i'm not preggers this time, then I don't want to try for 2 yrs bc I will be doing 2 more years of school. I guess I can wait til Friday :) I'm just gonna try to stop thinking about it. Thanks for your help.
