When to test after IB?

I "think" I had IB on apx 12dpo (just apx since I didn't temp or do opks). On Monday, 12dpo, I had pink tinged cm 3 times that day. Nothing since then though. I've tested the last 2 days and all have been neg (well I swear there's a line on 2 of the tests, dh even thought he saw one but think it was evap). Today is CD 39 of an average of a 36 day cycle. (longest in the last 5 months was 47 though)

So today would be 3 days post the bleeding. I've read all over that it can take anywhere from 2-10days to test positive after IB. Anyone know or have ideas? I have a handful of tests left, but don't want to keep waiting them even though I just "feel" pregnant (on top of super sore boobs, dizzyness, full/bloated and pulling feelings in the uterus), etc).

Since doubling time for HCG is 2-3 days, I'd retest every third day.

Good Luck!
