How long should you hold your urine before taking a pregnancy test if you don't take it with fmu? I know your suppose to use fmu because it is concentrated. So how long would qualify?

Just curious. When any of you got your bfp was it with fmu or during the day?

With .oni, I was about 2 weeks late and took it at the same time. around 6.30 pm. It was a faint faint positive.

And the next mornin it was a faint positive as well.

A week later, I took another one and it was boldly positive!

I have a test, and am ready to test, I just know it'll be negative.

All I want right now is a period or a positive. that's all!

Thanks for your responces. I took one this morning but not with fmu. I had only let about 1 1/2 hours pass before taking it. Of course, it was a bfn. And I really don't think I am. I just can't help myself. I'm having some signs. (i know i know Rolling Eyes ) But I really really really have to go and it's only been about 2 1/2 hours. I'm pretty sure thats not long enough. But I'm going to try to hold it. Laughing

if your anything like me i tested4 day prior to my missed period and i test at 6:30 pm without holding it in and i got my accurate result...it really depends how much hcg you produce. I would test fmu if you havent missed your period yet..anytime after that date it doesnt really matter when and how long you wait to test.
oh and if you got a negative today do not test for a few more days...those tests are pretty accurate. youre wasting tests

I know....I just can't help myself.Embarassed

I'm taking painkillers and am overparanoid that the slim chance I am pregnant. I would feel horrible if I continued taking them after I could produce a positive. Does that make any sence? It's hard for me to explain.

fmu is only really necessary before a missed period...once youve missed it its not needed because by then youve implanted and hcg is strong enough to be detected at anytime of the day.

That is where things get hazzy. I might not have o'ed all together.(probably not) but if I did I would only be 15dpo. I'm not sure what my cycle is. But in the past, if I had a cyst it would interupt my cycle alltogether. So, basically, I'm being paranoid for no reason. Rolling Eyes I just kinda needed someone to tell me that. Laughing

I recently went off bc. My cycles were about 10 days apart there for a while. If I did, this would be the first month I o'ed. And I only recently started temping so that doesn't help. This is why I want to test so much....I'm just so uncertian about pretty much everything Rolling Eyes

I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I took my test with my fmu and got a positive sign immediately. About 2 hours after I took the test my DH made me take another one "just to make sure". That one was positive immediately too. I did wait till I was like 1 week late to test though.

I'm hoping it's stress...or something else.

I'm not pregnant. (so says the test I took the day of the wedding.) SO I'm sure it's stress related. Even though my mind may not be stressed, my body may.

:shrug:

who knows?
