Since my last post nothing has changed and I'm caving in and going to buy a double pack tonight after I get out of my seminar. Question for all of you; which is the best HPT? Which HPT do you prefer over another? EPT, Clear Blue, First Response, etc..

First Response Early Result (FRER) and if you want a digital, Clearblue Easy.

I used the equate brand of the EPT with my first pregnancy, and clearblue easy digital with my second. I've tested so far over the past couple days with first response, equate, and EPT -- got all BFN's but AF isn't actually due until today sometime, so we'll see!

i've only ever used the early pregnancy tests from early pregnancy tests.com ....they are so inexpensive and respond to a lower amount of hcg than most store brands....but..you can't just go out and get them !! ...so i'm not much help....but if you ever want to order them, i think i spent about 10$s for 25 of them....plus they sell some other fun fertility things..my favorite was my little saliva microscope dealy...even though i don't think it works for me since it ALWAYS shows up as if i am about to ovulate..still fun though !

do you usually get cramping before your period starts ?

Sometimes. I've been off bc for 5 months now and my body went from a 28d cycle to a 39d cycle I'm on CD49 according to my menstrual tracker. Past 2 months I've had spotting and no real (red) AF. So I'm confused as to what CD I'm on and the cramping today and yesterday which is light.

from what i have been told, the first day of your period is when you start to actually 'bleed' ..and that a day spotting isn't considered the first day..........but..i think it is pretty much impossible to know any of these things for sure since we're all so different

i have pretty irregular cycles, so i never really know what day i'm on :P ...actually, when i think about it..even if irregular, i will normally have a period every other month..last period that i know was a period was oct.28th..so now i'm really confused

the cramping could be a god sign though ! :)

Well iffrom what ur told spotting isn't an actual period; then my last real period was end of Oct as well!!! I was told 7 years ago apprx that as long as I see red or brown blood that it's considered my period. But I never really believed it. I think I now have a yeast infection.. Is the 1 day or 3 day monistant application better? I hate having these and I hate being told "no sex" lol!

being told no sex is no fun :( .....i haven't been wanting to have sex lately for fear that if i am pregnant, the bleeding i had was a threatened miscarriage.....so i am a little paranoid....i don't think it was an actual miscarriage though bc i didn't have really strong cramps or anything..though some people say they never had cramps with a miscarriage :/

the whole 'when your period actually starts' thing is super confusing..cause out of the bleeding i had a few weeks ago, only three of the days i would consider actual bleeding..and the other five days were spotting....so it was either really short or really long :/

i'm not sure about the monistat ! i hope things start feeling better for you down there ;) ..can't be too comfortable....anymore symptoms ? ..i've just been trying to tell myself all day that i'm not pregnant and i'm imagining things..trying to avoid disappointment.....even though we weren't trying this time, previously we had tried over two years with no luck :P

i'm hoping that one of us gets a really strong symptom of some kind..the type that is unmistakable to be pregnancy...of course..i'm not sure there is a symptom like that....can't even trust the tests a lot of the time it seems !! or our periods !
