I'm 44 and my husband and i would love to have a child together and have been trying for 8 months now. Well i was supposed to start yesterday but did'nt. Took a home test it was negative. Its been awhile since i was last pregnant and don't know how long i should wait to take the test again. Could anybody help? We really hope it is a positive this time.

Hello! I'm TTC as well.

For the last few months I've done this thing where if I feel off at all I take a test. and then I'm heart broken.

Anyways, one day late doesn't necessarily mean anything... you could be either way and not show up on the test yet - some women it takes time to build up enough of the hormone to show up on a test.

So you don't drive yourself crazy like I have, I would recommend waiting until you are one week late and then test... that's what I'm doing now. It's hard not to test, but it's keeping me sane!

Good luck!
