Should I Still Be Hopeful

My first day of my last cycle was Dec 26. I usually have 28-30 day cycles. Today would be day 33 and af hasn't shown up yet. I did an Equate test this morning and it was negative. I read on some sites that it detects 100 units of hcg while other sites say 25. I would 2-4 days late right now. What do you think? Is there still a chance? I have a few symptoms of pregnancy. How long did it take for some of you to get a posotive after af was due? thanks ladies

Try a different test - I liked the clearblue digital because it says "pregnant" or "not pregnant". I found it to be just as sensitive as a first response early test or an internet cheapie. You can get two tests at Walmart for $9.99.

Deb, Did you find the digtal at walmart for 9.99? If so,was it a walmart brand. I'm going to get another brand this afternoon and wondering what to buy. I used a fact plus this morning, and got a negative, however I thought I saw a tiny line. I was thinking about getting a digital one.

It was a Clearblue Digital that I got at walmart for 9.99. (in Niagara Falls, NY) I would recommend the Clearblue digital, only because it worked for me. Within a minute of testing it popped up "Pregnant". I would also recommend peeing in a cup and dipping the test instead of peeing on the test. I don't know, it just seems like you have more control (I don't know about you, but sometimes I would have "crazy pee" and have a hard time keeping the test under the stream...LOL). Read the instructions though because I think you have to dip it for longer than you would have to pee on it. The thing that is great about the digital is that you don't have to wonder about any faint lines. If you test and it is negative, wait two days and test again. I got my BFP when my AF was 2 days late, but I had tested from 2 days before AF was due and I got the BFP on the digital, FR early test and internet cheapy all on the same day, so the sensitivity was the same. Good luck!

Thank you Deb for this helpful information. I'll go to walmart today, that gives me hope. That gives me a little hope. Can I ask you another question, I'm kinda imbarrsed to ask, but I couldn't find an answer on the internet. I have noticed that the last 4 or 5 mornings I have had a regular bowel movement. I'm not usually like this. Did you or anyone you know have this. It's a stretch, but just wondering.
