my husband and i are trying to start a family

I am suppose to get my period on Saturday(not a nice Christmas present). My husband and I have "my days" on our phone and it tells when I am ovulating and when I am most fertile. We have been trying on those days and as I said I am suppose to be getting my period on Saturday. I took a pregnancy test this morning and it came up negative. How much longer should I wait before I take another one, or should I wait until and see if I get my period. Also, I have been eating more then usual ....I don't know if it's due to stress or what! Thank you.

  • The day of your missed period. I also am not sure I would trust a phone to tell you your most fertile days. There are much better ways! I am not well versed in the temps and cervical Mucus methods but I wish I had been when I was TTC. It would have been so much easier!

  • Try ovulation prediction kits. You can order in bulk cheap on eBay. Much better than relying on some app to tell you when you're ovulating.

  • You would not be feeling pregnant at all yet. A negative test does not necessarily mean you aren't pregnant though.

  • Wait until you miss your period.

    I'm due for AF Christmas day too. I'm hoping she doesn't show. I will be testing Christmas morning.
