    Default Testing after giving up breastfeeding .....

    Im pretty sure im pregnant. I feel nautious on and off through out the day, am tired, hungry in the evenings and am moody just like when i was pregnant with my daughter (now 6 months). Ive been experiancing these symptoms for almost a week.

    My Husband & I had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago (3 weeks to the day on saturday night)

    Im unsure about when to test as i have not really had a propper cycle since giving up breastfeeding my daughter a month & a half ago.....

    I have tested today & it was negative. Which i guess is to be expected as i wouldnt even be 3 weeks pregnant yet.....and i cant go by my expected periods as i havent really had one since giving up BF yet. So i dont exactly know when i ovulated or anything....(Im sure i did though)

    Anyway, thoughts on when i should re test? Thanks

    I would think if the hormone levels were high enough to be giving you symptoms for a week it should show up on a test. Maybe give it a few days (although if it was me I'd be testing every morning lol!)

    Thats what i would have thought too, i had a sensetive smell experiance today too. Felt sick when i smelt strawberry yogurt. So im getting a lot of familiar symptoms.

    Though with DD it took a while to get a BFP. Maybe thats just me....?
