I am wonderin when I should test. 

Got my last AF on December 27th, my cycles are usually 30-34 days. 

I not using any help to find out when my ovulation was, so I am wondering, if I should try on the 26th or wait until the 30th. 

Have some cheap tests around here and one clearblue. 

And I have a very good feeling this month... :-D

When is the day of your expected period? 

Ive read that its advised that you wait til atleast 4-5 days past expected AF just incase you didnt ovulate on time? 


otherwise id say the 30th to test

Fx for you! If your not sure when you O I would test the day af is expected with a first response. I started testing 2 days before af is due (from charting I know it's 12 dpo) so af is not as much a sad surprise. Gl! Hope you get a bfp!

Around the 26th to 30th... 

But we are flying from Germany to Canada on the 30th early in the morning. I think I don't want to test in the plane or airport ;-D

Yeah, maybe I should start with the cheap tests around tuesday and then try the clearblue when I am sure.

I started testing 8 dpo with cheap tests. Then decided 2 days before my expected period to test 2 days before my period was due with a first response test completely expecting a negative...it came back with a line that I didn't expect and didn't completely trust because it was blue dye. So I bought a digital and tested after a 4 her hold...2 days before my period and it was positive
