Its only been a week since I tried to get pregnant, do you think I am?

My husband and I are trying to conceive a baby, I showed I was ovulating on July 31st, we were together Aug. 1st and the 3rd. I am due to get my period on the 10th. I took those EPT but they showed negative, but can it still be possible I am pregnant and it is just not showing up yet? How far along do you have to be until the tests show positive?

You could be pregnant. It's pretty rare to get pregnant the first month you try, but it does happen (happened to me the first time around). A really sensitive test CAN show positive before you miss your period... or it could be 2 weeks or more after your period is due (assuming it doesn't show) before you get a positive result. It depends on the test and the amount of HCG in your urine.

Congratulations if you are and good luck if you are not! :)
