oh yes, it really does...are you going to cave and start testing early or are you actually going to wait until the supposed arrival of af?
i'm going to test on friday. that would be two weeks and about time for af. i tried to convince my wife that i should do a blood test on monday. she said no:)
If you're going to test a couple of days early or within a couple of days after expecting your period, make sure you don't buy one of the cheap tests. The digital ones are REALLY nice too because then you don't have to try and decipher the line if it comes out kinda funny (which happens quite often). I think with EPT digital you can test 3 days before missing your period... I think.
I second that...I kept trying the dollar store tests and never got a positive, but then we broke down and got one of those digitals, and voila! Plus, the lines are so uncertain...you can *think* you see something, but...is it really? But the "pregnant" or "not pregnant" of the digitals is so helpful. :) We didn't use the digital until 4 days after my missed period, just b/c we tried to be cheap with the dollar store tests.
