Subject sorta says it all
I'm towards the end of my 2WW, I'm at 11 DPO and am itching to test. I've always doen first morning pee, but will it work with afternoon/evening too? FWIW, I'm using First Response tests.
Thanks!

Weelllll, I hope someone with more experience posts, but I think it has to do with how far along you are. If you are not to many days post-ovulation and there is not much hormone in your blood (and pee), the morning pee is best because it has more than any other pee. But if you think you may be further along, any time is ok.

FWIW, when I was pg with dd I tested for the first time at about 6 weeks, mid-day and it was bold as bold can be.

Wife to dh and mommy to dd1 (3/07), ds (1/10), and dd2 (any day now)!

You can POA stick any time of day but early on your best bet for getting a + is first thing in the morning because your urine will have a higher concentration of the preg hormone in it.

I'd test right now (and post the results ) and if it's - test again either in the morning or after AF is late. But if seeing a - will really upset you I'd just wait because a + might not show up this early even if you are preg.

or you could be like me, and POAS multiple times per day.... early morning, a couple hrs later, in the afternoon and again before bed, just to be sure

Best of luck!
