SO here is the deal...

Last period started on Feb 19th

BD with bf on March 1st and also on March 3rd and was definitly ovulating


Sore nipples, prickly boobs, cramping, heavy/full feeling in uterus, peeing more the last three days, creamy white CM which I never have, dizziness, and off and on nausea...most of which has been happening the last three days...

Hi Lisa,

I think you tested too soon, even the FRER test is only 66% effective 4 days before your missed period.

I know it's hard, but I would wait at LEAST 3 more days before trying the First Response Early Response brand.

Good luck!

I got a BFP about 3 days before AF so I would wait until at least then.

In all honesty, I'd wait until the day AF is due and test with FMU (first morning urine).

Yes, you definitely tested too early.

Hey all this is my first response so bear with me! I am in the exact same boat, I am almost positive I am prego, but am not supposed to start my period until 3/19. I have had alot of brown and pink spotting the last couple of days, sore breasts, fatigue, and nausea. I was trying to conceive and ovulated around the 5th of march and had unprotected sex with my husband about 3 times around my ovulating. I don't want to jump the gun, but I am almost positive I'm pregnant. I am going to wait about 3 or 4 more days until I test so keep your fingers crossed for me! Good luck to you with the impending pregnancy!!

There is no right and wrong time as every woman is different.
