What should I do next?

We are TTC. I'm 4 days late and have been nausous for almost 2 weeks and have no cramps(they are normally horrible a day or 2 before I start). I've taken 2 tests, they were both early result tests. I took one the day before I was supposed to start and then today on missed day 4. Should I bother with another home test? If so, when should I take it? When should I call the doctor?

  • Wait and test again in a few days it may just be too early for the hcg to be showing up in your urine, fro some women it takes a little longer. Good luck

  • Hi....I read that the best time to test is 9 -12 DPO...Of course the 2WW almost kills us considering we are so anxious. I guess it just all depends on the type of test you are using. Some tests are really sensitive and can pick up as little as 5 MIU of HcG. I agree with Graciesmom528...wait a little minute if you can, or find a very sensitive test. I am going to test with EPT. I have heard a lot of good things about them and FRER. Good luck to you dear, SSBD to you and all TTC, my fingers are crossed for you!!!
