I don’t know what to tell you, it’s hard!  And I was obsessed with taking tests, I think I started around 7 DPO but I had the internet tests so it wasnt too bad.  I think 5 DPO is way too early for a positive.  Good luck!

I went nuts every month. Then after awhile it’s too depressing to see negatives. Sorry this a debbie downer answer but it’s the honest one. When I got my bfp I hadn’t taken a test for 16 days or something after I could have, I was just over it.

I have yet to be in this situation (no O yet) I worry about two things, one a positive and it being a chemical pregnancy and the second if being negative and thinking you aren’t pregnant and drinking, etc.

I’d wait until 7DPO at the VERY earliest. I think 9 or 10 DPO is more realistic, though still quire early. 12 or 13 DPO is a lot more accurate. If you have internet cheapies (about 20 cents each), sure, test at 7 DPO, but don’t be disappointed if it’s a BFN that early. I’ve never ever heard of a BFP at 5DPO…

I got a BFN on 11 DPO and a BFP 12 DPO but ended up having a mc.

It’s hard. I’m 9DPO and getting to the itchy stage. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW.

@jaguar:  I think 8&9 DPO are the hardest. You want to test, you know there’s a chance it might be positive, but at the same time, its still super early. Hope you’re not going too batty!

I’m only 2DPO, so I’ve got AGES to wait. I think I’ll keep away from the boards and from stalking my charts to try and distract myself. I’ve also got a bunch of new books, so reading should distract me (non-baby-related books).

@redsmarties:  Agreed! So close, but yet so far…

@zoesmom126:  Yeah – TTC has certainly taught me lessons in patience over the last 14 months!!
