I think I O'd on the 22nd (this is my first month TTC so I wasn't tracking it hardcore) so when can I take a test? This waiting stuff is for the birds!!!

Would it be to soon for me to join the April Fools Day testers??

It wouldn't be too soon, but only about 1/2 of women get a BFP at 10 DPO. The risk of disappointment is too much for some people to take, but if you can handle it I say go for it! If it's a BFN, there's always the next day! ...and the next, and the next... :smileywink:

Most women who get a BFP in the end don't get it at 10DPO. It's considered to be extremely early and more chance of catching a chemical pregnancy if it's going to happen. A little over half get it at 12DPO and than more than half around 14DPO and of course the sure sign is waiting till AF is late or due. There is a great website www.countdowntopregnancy.com that gives you percentages and symptoms for days past ovulation. Good Luck!

Oooooh!! I want you to join us!!! :)

If you O'd on the 22nd, you will be 10 dpo on April 1st, which is early, but possible to get a positive. If you will be too bummed out by a negative then waiting a few more days would be good. But if you like getting an early jump and don't mind going through a whole 3 pack of tests in one month then 10 dpo is a perfectly good time to start, lol ;)

Keep us posted!!

Well I went to the dollar store and bought a bunch afterwork and took one...it was neg but I expected that so I wasn't bummed. I think I will actually be shocked whenever it is positive. I'm still early in the game so my spirits are pretty high to just be trying.

However,

No you're not a bad wife... I would definately test without him.... But he made me promise to not do it. He wants to be there when I found out.

I really think it's more of an ego thing than wanting a baby thing if we don't get pregnant for him. He thinks he has super sperm or something :)
