@MissOct2013:  was it a first response early result ? The pink box ? I would try again tomorrow. Are you sure you’re 11DPO?

Your test accuracy decreases exponentially for every day before your period is due that you test. Tests start being in a range where they are less likely to return a false negative on the day of your period, but some people will take even longer to have high enough HCG levels to get a positive.

They definitely could be!

And a BFN could be because you tested at night. If you can wait until AF is due that would be great, but testing with FMU and an FRER could give you an earlier positive (hopefully!)

Not too early in my book, but I’m a confirmed POAS-aholic.  I test early and often and contrary to what a lot of people say, I’m GLAD that I do, because I found out about miscarriages and an issue that would have effectively prevented me from carrying to term without detection of those miscarriages and the testing that followed!  

That said, you aren’t out until the red lady shows, so fingers crossed!  <3

Implantation only occurs between 8-12 dpo meaning you might not have implanted yet and therefore there is no HCG being made even if you are pregnant. Test every 48 hours until AF shows =] x

It MAY be too early…because implantation may not have even occurred yet. Your symptoms sound good, but I would think that if your symptoms are from pregnancy, then you would have enough hormone in your system to test positive. That said, I’d test every 48 hours until positive or AF arrives. Who am I kdding, I don’t have that willpower. FX for you!

i was naseous this month for a few days leading up to AF with cramps etc and sure i was pregnant.  when i was 1 day late, i took a test, negagtive.  The next day, AF came.

so you might me or you might not be.  wait until after AF is due then test again.

@phoebephoebo:  I’ve been thinking about it a lot especially once I realized the timing of each of them would be such that I would have only been a couple of days late each time.  >.<
