When should I test?
Hi there 

Hubby and I have been ttc for 4 months now. First monthly my cycle was 31 days, second month my cycle was 30 days, third month my period was 26 days. Now I''m not sure when my period is or isn''t going to come. What should I test?

On Monday, I was extremely nauseous, I''ve been over emotional these past few days. I''m extremely over-sensative. I''ve had some constipation.

I''ve stopped smoking for 2 weeks now, but I have also have some stress at work. I don''t know if my emotional state is because I stopped smoking, or because my period is coming or because I am pregnant. I don''t want to be too hasty in testing as it might be negative, and I really don''t think I can go through another month of being dissappointed!

Please help?

I would suggest that you wait till Day 31 before testing.
