So I was wondering when all you ladies ttc start to take hpt's. I am on cd 24 and am 8-10 DPO. I don't temp so ff is going by my cm and my last 3 cycles to estimate when I Oed. So if I test with first morning urine when can I start to test? I have 2 just waiting for me and I do have the money to go buy more if needed. And if I do test tomorrow (9-11DPO) with first morning urine how likely am I to get a reliable result?

Hey girl. There you are. I have been wondering about you!. So 10dpo huh? Very exciting. What types of tests do you have? If they are dollar tree I say wait a day or so, but if it's any other test I say go for it. Only because I started testing w/dollar tree at 9dpo and was getting BFN and my ++ didn't show until I was 12,13, & 14 dpo. So good luck. Im excited for you!!! Can't wait to hear the results.

hollyl2313, I have been wondering how you are feeling. Any morning sickness yet? I hope not it sucks. Any other symptoms? How far along are you? I think that I will go ahead and test with fmu tomorrow and continue to test every other day until I get a BFP(fingers crossed) or af starts. I will let you know what the results are. Thank you for the good luck wishes.

AHHHH hollyl2313 I really hope that you will read this since there is really no one else on here that seems to respond to me. Anyways so I did it I took the test at 5:30 this morning FMU of course. OMG it was a +, this early I am shocked. It was super light after about 3 minutes, then I went and crawled back into bed and tried to call my hubby who was on the way to work and he had stopped by the yard for his work to drop off some tools and he told me he would call me right back, well I got back out of bed to go look at the test again, to make sure it was still a +, and it was even darker. I am kinda happy but I read somewhere about chemical pregnancies and that it happens in 50% of ladies who get a + before there period is due. So I will be super happy when the 20th comes and af stays away. My hubby is kinda upset but only because we don't have a bigger suv yet but if I am pregnant then we still have 8 months left to take care of it. Well I hope that you are having a good day and feeling good with no morning sickness. O and if anyone else reads this and wanted to know if I am having any symptoms well I am super thirsty and have been for 3 days know. And my back has been hurting, and I have been having lots of cramps and strange little pulling like pains in my abdomen.

sorry angie that no one besides holly got back to you... I'm going to say congrats so long for the BFP... it is a bit early, I'm sure if you test tomorrow it will be darker. The most reliable result is ofcourse on the day of expected AF or after missed AF... but many ladies do get faint positives from 10dpo onwards... Have a happy healthy 9 nine months.... and yeah there is plenty of time to get the car issue sorted out =)

Thank you Martha31 and 2ndtimeround. So do you think that I should test again tomorrow or wait a couple of days and then test again. I am so scared to test again and have it be a BFN. Actually I keep looking at the test to make sure it is a +. I hope I don't sound crazy for doing that. Well thank you ladies again for the congrats and hope you all have a great day!

~*Congratulations*~

Congratulations! Now start your BFP thread and tell the (ttc) world!

Martha31, I HATE having my blood drawn, I usually pa__s out, and I don't go to a ob for my prenatal care I have a mid wife. She does do a blood test at my first visit but that usually isn't until 8 weeks so I still have 4 1/2 weeks to go. I will call her as soon as it is the 20th and af stays away and maybe she will be able to get me in sooner. MammaJL Thank You!

 

angie m - March 15

alicia1 Thank You. I kinda want to wait until af doesn't come before I start a new thread just to make sure. Or until I take another test and get another BFP since I tested so early.

ANGIE!!!Congratulations!!! Omg. You are one fertile girl. I am so excited for you. I was worried about a chemical pregnancy too, but as time wen't on that fear went away. What is your due date? If you had a positive test within 3 minutes today then I'm pretty sure that your test tomorrow will be even darker. I have absolutely noooo symptoms. I feel very grateful but it would be nice to at least feel a little pregnant. You must be freaking out right now. I am so happy for you. Talk to you later.

 

alicia1 - March 15

Understandable. But i agree w/ holly, you should feel confident. Please try not to stress too much. Prayers w/ U!

hollyl2313, I am so glad that you read this! My edd is Nov 26. I am so happy because that means that I will be able to dress my baby up in one of those really cute newborn outfits for Christmas. My whole family is really fertile on my moms side, my grandma had 4, my mom had 4, my aunt had 4, and my other aunt had 2 but that is only because she was older before she got started. I am so glad that you don't have any symptoms yet, I have to pee alot, drink a lot witch doesn't help the having to peeing, my back and head hurts, and I feel kinda crampy. And I haven't been feeling sick but I haven't really felt like eating much either. And since Monday I have been really tired and feeling lazy. But it will be all worth it. I am totally freaking out. I thought that it would take longer and kinda feel guilty that it didn't because so many people on here have been trying for so long. Well I will take a test again tomorrow and then go buy some more to take one every day until the 20th. I really want to get one that says pregnant, I think that it will make me feel better. alicia1 thank you for helping to calm my fears and for the prayers. It is very much appreciated.
