So, my friend and I are going to Fargo this Saturday to look at bridesmaids dresses for her wedding.  (I'm a bridesmaid.)  I wasn't planning to test until Monday (2 days later), my expected af day.  I'm torn because I wanted to wait until af was late, but if I am in fact pregnant, this would be a good opportunity to 1) look at maternity-approved BM dresses (we've been looking at them anyway just in case, but...I'd be roughly 36 weeks pregnant at the wedding if BFP this month) and 2) buy something and plan a surprise for hubby, which he absolutely would not expect since last he checked, I'm not testing until Monday.  I've always wanted to surprise him, but he's so in tune with my cycle since we've been trying for 8 months now.  But then again, I'm concerned I'll be testing too early (would be 11DPO), get a false negative (or actual negative), and be bummed during our dress shopping and what not.

What do you girls think???  Test or no?

Thanks ladies!  I'm usually a really early tester.  I've been trying to hold back this month.  Trying... to have a different mindset on testing.  But what an awesome opportunity to blab to my closest friend and pick something out to surprise DH with!

I tested several times last month. Dont test. Dont want to be bummed out while with your friends. Besides it may be too early and not show up yet. Then your bummed for nothing. Good luck!

Quoting CamoPrincessUN: Did you test



No, I'm only 9DPO right now. I'll be 11DPO on the day in question. I expect my AF on 13DPO.

TThat's why I'm concerned. I'm sure I could put on a plenty happy face for the day, but...
