I just really need some of your opinions, dh is driving me nuts. Ok, here is the situation: dh and I have been TTC since Oct or Nov, we just went on vacation, when I was O. A few days ago, I had pain in my boobs, nipples hard as rocks but SENSITIVE!!(sorry if TMI). I have reg AF, no pains, no pms, and no sore boobs. My last was april 1 and so I am due to start Tuesday. DH is all excited and went and bought HPT this morning, which came up neg. Do you think that I am preg and just tested too early- or am i going nuts and wanting this too bad??? When should i re-test?? Thanks so much for your help and answers!

It could definitely be too early to show up on a hpt. Average starts to show at about 35 days after start of last mc, some up to 40 days. Take test with first pee of the day (hormone levels higher) and try dipping in a cup of pee instead of peeing on the stick - I find this works better.

Good luck!!!

Thanks for your input Auroraf. DH made me take another HPT today, and neg. again. He is getting very frustrated with the whole ordeal. I used the First Response test, which say you can test 4 days early. Should I try another brand, or just dip the test? I did take the test with the first pee of the day. Is another sympton of preg. being hot? I usually freeze at work, home,and everywhere! Within the past week(since boobs started being sore), I have been extrememly hot. Thanks for responses and Good Luck to everyone else!!!
