@kris325:  I really resisted and waited until I was 2 days late with AF. It was hard, but easier than making myself nuts with peeing in tests and trying to read into them!

I have been creepin these threads a lot… I was not TTC and got knocked up… well  NTNP but in denial that i would actually get pregnant. but everyone is going to tell you that they don’t trust the blue dye tests and that you should use a First Response Early Response.. FRER.

lol so thats my input! everybody’s body is so different. I think 9DPO is a little soon so its very possible its too soon, but the ladies on the TTC boards like the FRER tests :]

@kris325:  Yep, no one here trusts blue dye tests. I’ve seen too many people get weird results with them! 9 & 10 DPO are pretty early and it’s totally possible to get a false negative (meaning test is negative but you are pregnant, just not enough HCG to register). I think results are more accurate between 12-14 DPO so I plan to always test between those dates! Maybe wait until 12 DPO to try again?

Honestly, I tested 5 days early both kids and it came up negative.. I tested 2 days early again with my second and got a positive. With my first, I than tested two days late and got the positive. I used the pink line test with her and barely could tell. So, honestly, I went out and got a digital test.. After I got 2 pregos on there I knew.. And, I said I would never use anything but digital again. It is SO much easier to read. So much.. I told my friends all the same. And, they now buy digital. They run the same price as the line ones, so why not. And, they are a clear, no denying it pregnant or not pregnant.. I would recommend digital clear blue easy or another digital.

 

Also, I would wait and test either a day before period is due, or honestly, a day or two after it is late. Your hormones aren’t built up enough way before to get a postive. I learned that lesson with both my kids.

yup like @gpsp2B: said, i would test with the FRER. blue dye tests aren’t as reliable as pink dye tests. if you can, buy an FRER and test in the morning with FMU. you could even wait until saturday to test and skip tomorrow. i’ve heard good things about the dollar store tests too but maybe wait to use those until 11/12DPO. the digital tests are great to confirm but they aren’t as sensitive so you wouldn’t get a positive on them this early unless you had a faint line on another test. i would wait to use the digi’s until at least 13DPO but probably more like 14DPO.

All 14 tests I took were blue dye, and they were all positive. I waited until 18 DPO… I really wanted an accurate answer (clearly I knew something was up, but I had all my pre-period symptoms, including spotting). I think waiting is really the best way to be most accurate, otherwise you’re just going to be tinkling on a stick daily until your get a positive or AF. Which is totally fine, if that’s what you’d like to do! haha

@kris325:  TBH, I don’t like or trust blue dye tests. Go out and get a First Response pink dye test.  If on 6/7DPO you had spotting it could have been implantation.  Rule of thumb is to test about 3 days after the spotting stops.

I had a short LP issue but had no problem with the FRER test. It showed up 11DPO, but I had gotten the faintest line on an internet cheapie at 10DPO.

I would use the FRER and test first thing tomorrow morning. If it’s negative, wait until AF is late.  Good luck!
