    How late is late?

    Hello my fine TTC ladies.

    I'm try not to stress out here or get my hopes up either but I am now 4 days late for AF and on CD 30 and in the 3 years I've been tracking, not charting (have been doing that for 6 months), and this is the late I've gone.
    I want to test but I have read many different articles about when to test. Some say you can test as soon as you are 1 day late and others say to wait until you're at least 10 days late. And also seems as soon as I want to test or buy as test AF shows up. Right now have no signs of her showing up, but don't really feel pregnant either. It's weird really. I had no PMS symptoms until the night before AF was due and now my symptoms have seem to have died down. My breasts are achy and very sensitive, hugely fatigued, mild nausea (on & off) and moody. So I don't know what my body it telling me.

    Yes, some test are different and every body and every pregnancy is different. I found out I was pregnant a week before AF was due with my 1st, and I tested from 5 days before AF was due with my 2nd, but nothing showed up on the tests until 2 days after AF was supposed to show up. I would test anyways. And if it is a BFN, just wait another couple of days and test again if still no AF. I'm the same exact way with the pee stick/AF ordeal. I swear, every time I pee on a stick, that very same evening AF comes. It never fails! Good luck!!!
