How many days before AF is due are you going to test?

I normally started testing around 11 DPO, but I had my first RE appointment and decided to test just in case. Well, at 9 DPO I got a very faint pos. My beta numbers came back at 12.5, and anything over 8 they counted as pos. Every doc has a different magic number they want the first beta to be.

I recomend using the internet cheapies from amazon, they seem to be as sensitive at the expensive ones and your don't feel bad about wasting a test. These are the ones I used: http://www.amazon.com/Step-Pregnancy-Test-Strip-pack/dp/B003APW8XY/ref=sr_1_14?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1344031134&sr=1-14

I got a light BFP at 11 DPO and I was never someone who tested early. I had my RE appointment and just wanted to test just in case before going in for the initial appointment. Unfortunately the blood test was still negative at 11 DPO and that obviously crushed me but when I got my darker results a few days later the beta came back positive as well!

Well AF is due next Wednesday or Thursday and I'm traveling till late Monday night. So I guess Tuesday if I don't feel like she is on her way.

I really just want to test every single day till I get that darn BFP!
