Your cycle is really close to mine. My last period started August 28 and I tested on Saturday and got a positive. I tested again today (Monday) and got another positive, but it was a lighter line than the first time. I have an appt. with my ob/gyn next week, but I may get impatient and test again on Wednesday or Thursday.
