Hi everyone, [br>[br>DH and I have only been TTC for 2 months. I stopped by BC at the end of March after taking it for a little over a year. I got my first cycle on April 2nd, and like most of my periods, it lasted 7-8 days (3 days really heavy, 3 days medium and 2 days of spotting). Based on my calendar, I ovulated sometime between April 14th - 19th and DH and I were together several times. My next period came around May 3rd, but was extremely different from the others... It was only 3 days and super light compared to my usual cycles. Unfortunately, I don't recall whether or not it was red or a different color. During this whole time since ovulating in April until today, I've experienced nausea, bloating, constipation, loss of appetite, fatigue, moodiness (according to DH), and on/off sore and tender nipples (sorry if this is TMI). I don't expect my next period until June 3rd and it's driving me bonkers! I didn't see the point in taking a HPT since I still have 6 days to go, but should I just go for it? I know that if it comes out negative, I can always take another one if my period never arrives, but is it worth the trouble? I don't want to get my hopes up.

You could always get super sensitive one, the 20 or less kind, but if you don't want to get your hopes up I say might as well wait.
