I’m not going to tell you not to test early because that would be hypocritical of me, at least wait till tomorrow though. My current pregnancy I had a super squinter at 9dpo but my first pregnancy didn’t have a positive till 11dpo. Just be prepared to be disappointed. 

I don’t think implantation symptoms are a thing, I think very, very few people get some implantation spotting but other than that I wouldn’t read into it. Try not to symptom spot, it really doesn’t do you any good and honestly most of the symptoms you read about come after you get you BFP.

KB87 :  I had a BFN at 9dpo and the faintest line on a frer at 10dpo! Best of luck!

Implantation doesn’t occur for most people until 9DPO (on average), so you shouldn’t really expect to see anything on a pregnancy test until about 2 days after this (11DPO) at the earliest, as it takes time for the HCG hormone to be strong enough in your urine. When people get BFPs earlier than this, it basically means that implantation occurred earlier than average.

I know it can be hard to wait but, personally, I would wait at least until tomorrow to test again but would probably try to hold out for a few more days – seeing BFNs can be disheartening. Good luck bee!

I had a faint line at 9dpo on a wondfo and dollar store test. The FRER was negative. The following morning at 10dpo I had a super faint line on the FRER. At 11dpo it was a clear BFP.

It’s hard not to test early so I get it. I would try to wait until at least 10dpo.

KB87 :  FRER says they can detect pregnancy up to 6 days before your period, not that they will necessarily. Their own studies show that they’re only 76% accurate 5 days before a missed period. I’m guessing the only folks who can catch it 6 days early are folks who either have long luteal phases or have unusually early implantation.

KB87 :  it’s just a marketing ploy.  Even cheapie tests can detect pregnancy around the same time the first response can.  Let’s say you have a 15 day luteal phase.  It’s saying it could detect pregnancy 6 days before your missed period which is 9 DPO.  Since implantation could occur on 7 DPO you could easily get a BFP 9 DPO.  But you don’t need to use a first response.  I would use cheapies until you get a line and then use a more expensive test (if you want, you don’t need to). In my case I had a short luteal phase (9-10 days) so I would NEVER get a BFP 6 days before my missed period as it would be impossible.

KB87 :  I had a faint positive on a cheapie at 8DPO, I took a digital and a FR right after that same morning and had BFP on both, so anything is possible.

KB87 :  Just wait and see what happens! There’s always the chance that you ovulated a few days later than you think, which means that AF will be due later. If you get a BFN tomorrow and no AF, just wait a few days and test again. FX you get your BFP bee!
