    I got a positive at about 15 DPO. It was on a first response test but it wasn’t the “early result” one, it was the one that Darling Husband bought on sale LOL. I took a first response early result test the day my period was due and it was negative. Same thing 2 days later.

    The earliest I’ve seen from others TTC was 10 dpo… but it was very faint. I’ve also read alot of ladies who were weeks late still not getting a bfp. Because of that I’ve decided to not test until AF doesn’t show. I don’t feel like going through hpt like air and getting bfn =/

    @runsyellowlites:Good point about going through HPTs like air. I called my doctor the day after my period was late and I got a BFN and she told me to wait 5 more days and then test again. For the next 2 days I held strong but after that I tested 3 times. All BFNs. Darling Husband banned me from buying HPTs and he bought one the night before the day that the doctor said to test. I tested the morning that the doctor said to test and ta da! BFP. I wasted a lot of money on pregnancy tests when I should’ve just been patient. It’s so hard to wait though!

    Mine was 12dpo from a Generic Kroger First Response, and my line was still on the light side.  I wanted to wait until the day my period was due so I didn’t have to have the stress of a false negative.

    I didn’t even test until 21 DPO, and that’s when I got my BFP.

    I thought I was 10dpo when I got my positive but the little bean is measuring as though I ovulated the day before I thought I did. So, I guess I got my faint positive at 11dpo. I highly recommend buying the Wondfo strips on Amazon. They are like $5 for 25 of them and for me at least they were quite sensitive. I got my bloodwork done 2 days after my bfp and my hcg was only 43… it must have been in the 20’s when I got the positive.

    What is DPO? I got a positive 2 days after my missed period. Both with First Response and Clear Blue (both digitals).

    So for the first couple of months TTC, I started testing at like 10 DPO – and of course, always BFN until AF reared her ugly head.   After that, I decided that I would NOT test until the day AF was supposed to arrive.   It was really hard to wait, but I found that getting AF was easier to deal with than seeing all those stark white negatives.

    I remember reading somewhere (and of course can’t find it now) that although many pregnancy tests claim they can pick up a pregnancy “as early as 5 days before a missed period” the accuracy when testing that early was very very low (it was something ridiculous like 5-10%).  I don’t think most tests reach 95% accuracy until 14 DPO.  So that info helped me wait it out too.

    For the early miscarriage before this pregnancy, iI had a very faint line at 14 DPO.   For this pregnancy, I also tested positive at 14DPO but it was a bit stronger line this time round, so it *might* have shown up the day before.  

    Soooooooooooo how many DPO are you?!?  Laughing

    wow so many acronyms. haha.

    For my second child, I was damn sure I was pregnant.  I just knew my body. I lost count of how many times I tested, it was probably at least every 3 days because I was that sure.  I tried multiple brands, I didn’t get a postive until I was 9 weeks.  I went to my GP and was all “oh I would say I am about 4 weeks” He did a blood test and told me that I was along way more than that, sent me for an ultra sound and they confirmed it.

    I think I was about 10 DPO when I got a true positive.  It was a digital one that says Yes or NO.  I had taken a target brand one with the blue lines a day or two before and the line was so light I just wasn’t convinced, on Christmas morning I went out and bought the digital one and sure enough it said YES!  I even cracked it open to make sure!
