My husband and I are not TTC, but we had a little bit of an “oops” moment on Valentine’s Day – right smack dab in the middle of my fertile window (I track my periods very closesly, because I’ve always had somewhat irregular periods – but things have been regular for months at this point). We talked about it, and decided that if I got pregnant, then we’d make it work.
Anyway, since then, I’ve been FREAKING OUT. Every cramp, pain, etc. is making me think I’m pregnant. And I know that in all likelihood, I’m not, but I CAN’T STOP thinking about it. It’s driving me crazy.
According to my apps, AF is due either Wednesday or Thursday. I’ve had some mild cramping, but it started a lot earlier than my usual period cramps do, so that got me thinking it might be possible. I took a pregnancy test this morning, and got a BFN.
So, I was wondering – when did you ladies get your BFP? I bought a big pack of cheap pregnancy tests off Amazon – nothing fancy, and I don’t think they’re the extra sensitive type you see advertised on TV, so I know it’s possible it just hasn’t shown up on a test yet. Either way, I’m fine – this isn’t an expected or planned thing, but the not knowing is what’s killing me!

8 DPO. I only have a 10 day luteal phase so it was 2 days before AF was expected.

I don’t remember where in relation to my period it was, but 11DPO

I was expecting my period on a Thursday and got my BFP on Tuesday at 12 DPO.
Also had a negative test at the doctor at 9 DPO because I also had a cold and they wanted to test, but still made sure they gave me antibiotics that were safe for pregnancy.

I got my BFP at 10 DPO on a cheapo Amazon test, which was exactly a week before my period was due.

I’ve been pregnant 3 times: one natural (11DPO) – usual LP is 12ish days, ended in CP. Second, IUI (10DPO) – on progesterone but ended in early MC. Third, IVF (equivalent to 9DPO) on tons of hormones and currently 15 weeks pregnant. All were tested with cheap Wondfo before confirming with FRER.

Day AF was due, but I have a short LP (10 days). It was incredibly faint, the squintiest of squinters.

I’m a strange duck in this game. I got a BFN at 13dpo but period still didn’t show at 15 or 16dpo and I took another test at got a BFP!

Hey I got my BFP 3 days before my missed period
Post # 10
9 DPO which would be about 5 days before expected period
Post # 11
9 dpo with both pregnancies, so like 3-4 days before my missed period
Post # 12
I got mine 12DPO, but it was after IVF and I was afraid to test earlier in case the trigger shot was still in my system.

I got a super faint/ couldn’t believe it was real BFP at 11dpo, but it wasn’t clear (nor did it come up on the digital) until 14dpo. I was freaking out that I was mistaking or miscarring based on the numbers on the box, so went on here to discover that isn’t a unique situation. When it comes time for TTC for baby #2 I think I’ll skip the stress and avoid testing before a missed period all together.
