I am a nursing student. I am actually 2 months pregnant:) I think I have some advice for you. I know you must be anxious to know!! I know I was.

I too had somewhat irregular cycles so what I did is I took the average of the two months cycle length. If you were to do that for you would take 25 and 29 get 27 days being the length of this supposed cycle.

Then using an ovulation calculator online (which I used by the way with my pregnancy) you would get your most fertile time being from Monday, January 16 to Saturday, January 21.

Your period would be due Thursday February 2nd. Buy a 2 pack of HPT's I highly recommend First Response pregnancy test (I have found it to be the best, most sensitive) Take the first test thursday if its negative wait at least 2-4 days and take another. Remember a faint pink result line within the time limit, I believe its 10 minutes is a positive result.

Hold back testing too early. You will feel better trust me.

Good luck I hope this helps you:)
