    Hi and congratulations to all of you!

    I used to be a member way back on this board way before the format changes lol, went through my TTC issues and pregnancies on here..I just had a question, I am 5 days late, never late, took a dollar tree test this morning but not with FMU and got a BFN are those tests really accurate? I'm thinking to wait a few days and test again, however, no pregnancy symptoms, so I don't think I am, btw, not trying to have a baby, I have two girls 11 and 7, but if I was it would be a nice surprise

    Hi there. I started on the board in July 2008, so maybe we've crossed paths.

    I know I tested too early with #2. I think maybe wait and try again....

    we may have crossed paths!

    well I tested negative with three home pregnancy tests, still no period, will be seeing my doctor soon though, I think I may be in the beginning stages of perimenopause :(

    thanks for your response!

    I used a Dollar Tree test with my most recent pregnancy and it was accurate. I was TTC for a while, and also used one when I thought I might be pregnant but wasn't. It was accurate then too.

    I am now 41 also and even though I just had a baby and I'm still nursing I wonder if perimenopause is around the corner for me. My mom started menopause early and my sister is fully through it at age 43. I haven't noticed any symptoms yet, other than I'm getting forgetful at times. That could be explained by sleep deprivation also...

    Good luck at the doctor. Keep us posted!
