Hi there!

We are ttc #4! I have been on a bunch of web searches trying to figure out when to expect my period, so I can test!!

Here's my start dates for my last 3 months:




**According to some sites I'm already late, and others say today or tomorrow!! How do you know?? You'd think I'd know by now LOL

  • It looks like you have an irregular cycle. The amount of days between each of your periods varies. Based upon this, I couldn't tell you when you should start.

    The first is 30 days, the second is 32. So if I cut it in the middle it would have been yesterday.

  • Two full cycles isn't enough to see any kind of pattern. Assuming your cycles are always 30-32 days long, you should start sometime from 4/23 (yesterda) to 4/25 (tomorrow). Close enough to go ahead and take a test, though best if you wait until first thing tomorrow morning. If it's negative, wait a week and take another test if your period still doesn't show.

  • Looks like your cycles range from 30-32 days.... So, I'd say anywhere from April 23-26. I know how frustrating it can be - mine are anywhere from 25-42 days :( It is making it very difficult to conceive :'(
