I'm ttc and this would be my 3rd cycle. Each month I have had bad cramping for about a week and a half and feeling a bit nauseus. My cycles are roughly 26-29 days. I'm on CD 29 feeling sick, crampy but no sign of AF. I know I need to test to see if I am, but I'm not sure I'm ready for the dissapointment - how long should I wait to test? With my last pregnancy the only symptoms I had were feeling like AF was on the way.

If you test today you should have a conclusive result. Testing any time from today should really be ok, in terms of avoiding having to squint/twist/invert/stand on your head to see a line.

Good luck! original.gif

well I did do a test (several in fact wink.gif ) and I got a BFP.gif . No really different symptoms that I would normally get when AF is about to arrive!
Excited and nervous about having 2 children to look after in 9 months time!!!

Wow!  What a rush to read your pot where you were asking if you should test and then to scroll down to see a BFP.  If only all suspense-filled waits could be fast forwarded like that, hey.

Best wishes to you!!!!!! grin.gif
