I am ten days dpo at the moment. I keep feel cramping but no spotting. What Is the best day to test and what test. This is would be my 2nd pregnancy. My 1st one wasn't planned. Dh and I are very anxious. I was thinking of testing in the morning. Any ideas what I should do ladies. Btw my name is angel. Tuvmia

Welcome! Some ladies will start testing at 10dpo but chances are still pretty low at this point -it takes time for the hcg to build up enough to register a positive so a bfn doesn't necessarily mean you're not pg. Another risk of testing so early is detecting a chemical pregnancy. That being said, many ladies here are poas addicts & can't help peeing on things!!

Your best bet is to wait until at least 12dpo, if not longer. Ideally you should wait until af is late. Many of us use Internet cheapies or dollar store tests & then confirm with an frer when a positive shows. Walmart also has 88 cent tests too. Make sure you're using fmu too -good luck Angel :)

Also stay away from blue dye tests! Even if they are on sale!!! We've seen too much heartache from ambiguous or misleading results. Frer's are pink dye...

I agree completely with Angela (girl, you couldn't have said it better...I think my tutorials have paid off LOL).

Good Luck and Baby Dust to you!

I am using 1st morning urine. I always do. I am guess i will test again on friday. thats one day after AF should be here. I did have some cramping the last few days but that could be AF anyways. I am way excited and have my hopes up so i just know becuase of that I will have a BFN. I always use 1st response becuase I looked at percentage and accurancy rates and they were the best. I never used a blue die test before. Didnt even know there was a difference. I buy the pack owith multiple. I also use the clear blue ovulation tests because I did research and found taht was the best. I always get sooo

Thank you so much ladies! My main question I guess right now bc I keep cramping is if you can have ib one pregnancy and. Not another. Any multiple pregnancy mama's know?
