Hi ladies! When do you plan on using your first home pregnancy test for this cycle? Sign in here and let us know what day you hope to take your HPT. Be sure to come back here and share your results once you've tested!

Which test are you using?  I've read that some test may not show positive until a week after AF is due.  Good luck, hope you get the answer you want! :-)

Hmmmm....by my calc AF is due Monday (8/13), but according to FF I should expect her Tuesday or Wednesday.  The earliest I will test will be Monday.  I HATE seeing the BFN so i'd rather just wait and see if AF shows on her own.

Although, with DD I tested at 10DPO because I had some "implantation spotting" and sure enough I got a +HPT....if I have any sure signs of PG I'll test earlier, but I'm not very optimistic this cycle.

Frer. Woke up today and still no AF. If she doesn't show, I'll test again tomorrow am.

How frustrating!  Did AF show yet or have you tested again?

First off, hugs.  My dh wouldn't even let me keep tests in the house, lol.  If you're period is still a day or 3 away, you should be testing with only first morning urine (IMO).  It's the most concentrated and will give you the most accurate results.  HcG doubles every 48-72 hours so the line may very well be faint to begin with.  And if the urine is too diluted, it could easily come up negative if in fact it's not.  So my suggestion would be to wait a couple more days and then test again with FMU to see if the test is darker.  Keep in mind that pregnancy symptoms can come and go as well early on.  As for the Vitamin D, I wasn't aware of that.  I was actually taking 2,000 Iu of D3 due to a deficiency myself, but that was started after I was already pregnant and has been cut in half now that my levels are back in normal range.  Good luck!
