'Cuz I'm kinda freaking


Okay- I think my last period was July 5th.

We DTD a lot this month but on he 20th we had an "oops" (well not really a mistake lol, just heat of the moment sort of thing)

On Friday, the 23rd, I had serious EWCM which continued for three days following.

I have no idea how long my cycles are or what any of these numbers really mean. I'm not sure when to expect my period, I usually just wait until its there and then, well.. there is it. lol

The one time I was pregnant before I didn't find out until i was 7 weeks, my DP was like, havent you gotten your period yet? And I was like no, why was the last time awhile ago? lol

So I totally saved my FMU and am dying to stick a test into it. Is it insanely early? Should I wait until the 5th?

My boobs are sore


Thank you sooo much!

with love, bailey...

LOL I just put my last period into a pregnancy calculator thing (yes, I'm obsessed)

and it said with LMP my estimated conception date is the 20th! (the date of the oops)

I thought it was too much before O that it probably wouldnt hold, but it seems by average standards its right on with my fertile period.. right?

OMG I know nothing about my body.

So is 8 days after possible conception too early to test??

with love, bailey...

because you do not know how long your periods are and they seem to be irregular, I would assume that you Oed after the 3 days of EWCM so more like the 26th... which would make the 20th oops possibly too early (sperm can live inside of you for 5-7 days, 7 being a rare extreme, 5 being a lot less likely than even 3)

however, 20th or 26th, it is WAY too early to test right now. you would only be somewhere between 2 and 8 dpo. Wait a week and test then, if its negative, wait 5 more days and test again. That is, if you dont get AF first.
