I found out I Was pregnant before my missed period. I was actually only 3 weeks into my pregnancy when I found out. I had taken the pregnancy test just for fun lol.

I think I took it a day before my missed period. I wanted to wait, but I was too impatient.

My period wasn’t exact, but I was supposed to get my period sometime around Friday.  By Sunday when it hadn’t came (I could feel that it wasn’t coming any time soon) I took a test.

12 DPO for me.  I had a negative HPT on 10 DPO so don’t test too early.

I did a lot of research on how soon you could test. From what I found, you are pregnant not when the egg is fertilized but when the fertilized egg implants. The time it takes for the egg to travel and implant can be anywhere from 6-12 days. Then, you need another 2-3 days for the hormone to show up in your blood, and another 2-3 days for it to show in urine. Based on that, pretty much the quickest you could see a positive result would be 10 days, or 4 days before your period. I am sure there’s an outlier or 2 that was 9 days, or 5 days before your expected period. On the flip side, if it took the full 12 days to travel and implant, and 3 days each for the hormone to show up, you could be looking at 18 DPO, or 4 days after your expected period. Maybe even 5 if there wasn’t enough of the hormone detected in a pregnancy test. So, really, quite a window of when you could/should test.

I waited until the day after I expected period. Positive result came up before I was even finished peeing.

I tested 6 days before my period and got a verrry faint positive.  The next day it was a little darker.  I ahd the best luck with the First Response 2 line kit – not the digital ones.  I dont know how many DPO that was but I do know that the horomone levels are different per person

@umagurl: I did the same thing yesterday and this morning. My period isn’t due until Saturday. Both were negative. I know, it is so hard to wait and be patient!! I had some vertigo yesterday, a tiny nausea this morning and I’ve been so fatigued the last few days even with lots of sleep. Wish you luck!! I’m going to try to force myself to wait and test Thursday. 🙂

I managed to wait two days past my period due date before taking a test, and that’s when it came back positive.

Good luck!

@Jenn23:  I had a very, very early miscarriage (chemical pregnancy?) back in August, and we had been trying since March to get pregnant.  So, I had a lot of time to practice patience!

Good luck!

@eurekaanchovies: Sorry about your loss. I miscarried last July. But I’m the opposite since I’ve had to wait until January to start ttc again, I have no patience like you did. This is my first month ttc and so I’m super excited!!! My husband just emailed me from work earlier this morning and said jokingly, “I’m going to hide those pregnancy tests from you”. LOL
