How many weeks along were you when you found out you were pregnant with HPT or Blood test at the doctors?
For those that tested after their missed period and got a negative, how long (days/weeks) after you missed your pperiod until you got a positive HPT/Blood test?

I was 4 weeks and 3 days when I got my positive test, but I hadn’t tested before then. I spent a night throwing up and decided I should take a test the next morning and sure enough – knocked up!

I still got my period when I was pregnant with my son, then I missed one and took a test. A week later I got an ultrasound that said I was 11 weeks. With my second baby, we were trying so I knew all the symptoms to look for. I noticed my sense of smell was out of this world so I took a test that can predict pregnancy before you miss your period and it said I was pregnant.

I was somewhere around 5 weeks when I got a (really 3, lol) positive HPT.

I was so impatient that I tested the day that AF was due! haha!
So I guess 4 weeks 🙂

I was… 4 weeks along? That can’t be right. But according to the calendar, our conception date is exactly four weeks from the date I tested. Weird.

@Mrs. Spring: that does seem odd, do you typically have long cycles? Doesn’t 4 weeks post conception really mean about 6 weeks post last missed period?
I was 4 weeks and 3 days since the start of my last period.

@Bostonsmom:wow that used to be one of my biggest paranoias — that i would get pregnant and have no idea because i was still getting my period. at least you didn’t have to wait very long to tell people!

I found out before I missed a period because I bowled really, really well at league. When I tested, it said I was pregnant and my period was several days away. Granted, I have no idea how many weeks I would’ve been, but basically as early as possible. Even the doctor was surprised. Guess that happens with second babies sometimes.

@SecretName: You’re correct. They consider “how far along your are” based on your last period start date. So naturally anyone testing right around their missed period will be in the 4 week stage (if you have semiregular cycles). Sounds weird but doctors do this bc its harder to pinpoint ovulation and conception for everyone.

@SecretName: Yes! Ok, that’s why it didn’t sound right to me. I was 6 weeks along. 🙂 I “just knew” the day we concieved, so I didn’t even test until I went to make a doctor’s appointment. For future reference, a doctor will not see you based on “intuition”; they will ask you to take a test. 🙂

@Mrs. Spring: *giggle* that’s when you lie and say it was positive! (oh, I’m a bad bad person, aren’t I? LOL!)
My FI knew when I had concieved but he didn’t tell me! in fact… he kept saying I wasn’t, since we both were in denial, I didn’t know until I was 3 months pregnant with our daughter, lol. Something about a disfunctional gallbladder and misery… 😉 I didn’t test until after I missed my period with my son, so I’m the last person to ask about this, lol.
Anywhos, I’ve been wondering this myself!

I was 3 weeks and 3 days (12 DPO) when I got my BFP. I had been charting and I’m impatient so I always tested around that time even though 2 days before I’d gotten a BFN.
