Kels123- Greetings back from Colorado. It's so freakin cold today isn't it? We just started getting flurries at my house. It's a perfect day to wrap christmas presents and stay inside.
AF is still 5 days away and I don't want to test too soon, but I don't know if I'm having symptoms wouldn't the test show positive?? Ugh maybe I should break down and get one today. What do you guys think?
5 days before AF with a FRER...it was a faint positive but still a positive...I tested the next day with an ept +/- test and got a regular positive AND I took an ept digital afterwards...I'm a testaholic! Good luck!
It all depends on when you ovulated...do you have a good idea of exactly when that happened? If you ovulate late, then you would probably not get a + 5 days before your period.
For example, if someone ovulates on day 13 and has a 28 day cycle, then they would be 10dpo five days before their period should start.
If they ovulated on day 18 (some people do), then they would only be 5dpo five days before their period..and that would definitely not show up on a hpt. The egg probably wouldn't have even implanted yet.
I was doing the Clearblue Digital Ovulation kit and didn't get a smiley face until day 18-19! That's really late for me, but I was under a lot of stress due to work, my 2 year-old, and graduate school. My cycle has been more of a 30-31 days for a past couple of months.
I'm testing next Thursday on the 11th...I can hardly stand this wait! Ugh!
