Ok so….. the possibility is there due to a lovely long vacation me and the hubby took. How long till I know? do I have to wait to miss my prd to test? If i do it sooner will the test work???
How many days before or after your expected period did you find out?? Thanks ladies!

I am TTC…and the early test say they can detect the pregnancy hormone up to five days before you expect your period. It’s probably a little more accurate it you test closer to the day you expect your period. There is a TTC thread on the babies board with a LOT of info!! Good luck!

I tested the day af shoulda shown and got a very faint positive.
I would hold off as long as you can to test, especially if you’re hoping for a positive, because getting a negative b/c it’s too early can be really discouraging.

I “knew” immediately. I actually knew I was pregnant before I was even far enough after ovulation for it to show up on a test, the first test I took was negative. I got my very faint BFP at 10 DPO with the First Response tests.
How close you are to your period has nothing to do with accuracy. There are women who don’t get BFPs until weeks after their missed period. It all depends on how fast your body produces HCg.

I found out I was pregnant on 12dpo after getting a bfn on 10dpo, but I think I knew I was pregnant a few days after ovulation (our chances were very high) I was just in denial especially since I was dealing with infertility. I didn’t want to get my hopes up. They say that you should wait until you miss your period, but I don’t know a woman that didn’t test earlier.

For me, I took 4 tests before my period was due and they all came up negative. When my period was late, I didn’t think anything of it since I had all these negative results… Until nausea started. BFP came at 4 days late period.

My husband swore he knew right away, but I was highly suspicious within a couple of days because my boobs were so sore. I tested 4 or 5 days before my missed period and had a pretty good positive line already.
