    I know i said i was waiting till January 1 and i had full intention of doing so but i have 4 boxes of FIRST RESPONSE® Gold™ Early Result Digital Pregnancy Test.

    i just took a look at their web site to see how sensitive they were and it says
    "Early results five days before your missed period...NOW in a digital test"


    AF is due on christmas ..maybe the day after.

    to test or not to test that is the question?


    I think i am 9dpo today

    Hey I am due AF on Christmas too (8DPO today)! Arent we lucky! Hoping its BFP for us!

    With my son I tested 9DPO and got a very faint line on a cheap internet test and a not preg on Digi. I tested 10DPO and got a stronger faint line on the cheap test then tested later on with held in pee with a digi(clearblue) and got a pregnant that was 2 days before AF was due.

    I think they arent as sensitive as they say but I recon a few days before AF its more accurate.

    Its up to you really but I would try to hold out until Monday at least if using a digi.....oh its so exciting!!

    I got a bfp on a frer at 8dpo, I guess it depends if you can accept you might need to wait longer. Good luck. X

    how exciting elmaxie I hope we both get our BFP's..

    i will be a bit disappointed if i get a BFN but at the same time it would be ok since we were not going to officially try again till january..

    I am thinking if i test today i can get it out of my system and wait properly.. I have heard so much that a loss and throw your periods out of wack .. I had 2 previous losses but do not remember them making my cycles weird.

    it would be nice to know for sure before christmas and new years so i could relax and drink a bit of holiday cheer.. or be over the moon happy without the need for a drink

    Awww its rubbish seeing BFN on a digi...but as you say its probably a bit early!

    I have got a twin pack of digis for when I see 2 lines...I have a few cheapie tests to use from Monday and I might just have to buy some FRER out shopping tomorrow as I am a bit weird and test with cheapies....if I see a faint line (as my first was mega faint to the point OH couldnt see it!) then the next day I test with FRER and only when I see clearly two lines I use a digi....tis my plan this time.


    Fingers crossed for Christmas BFP!

    Keep us updated!
