Hi, you would think I would know my answer myself consiseeing I have two kiddies already but I was wondering has anybody who has tested early got negatives then day of AF and onwards got positives? My last two pregnancies I held off testing until day AF was due and got positives but this time after reading about how some people have tested as early as 8DPO and got faint positives I thought I would try and literally everyday my heart has sunk with each negative. I'm due AF this Thursday (21st sept). I dont really have much symptoms so not hopeful but I don't know whether it's because I've been testing and seeing negatives that I've convinced myself I'm not. I still BF my two year old and suppose nipples are slightly sensitive and I have got back ache where I usually get period pains but to be honest haven't had period pains the past few months so making me think could I be? I got period like pains with my other two pregnancies. I know I won't know now until period but just wanted to see if anybody got negatives before AF then surprisingly got positive day of AF and onwards...sorry for the ramble ha!!!

Can't help you with personal experience as I conceived straight off BC each time so wasn't exactly sure when AF was due, only vaguely. I definitely remember testing with my son and getting a negative then retesting 4 days later and getting a positive though.
This website has some useful stats on early testing...
You can select different dpo, but as you can see, pretty pointless testing at 8 dpo.

I tested twice (once about 5 days before AF was due and then 3 days before) on clear blue digital and both were negative. I then tested on day AF was due with second wee of the day and nearly passed out when it said 'pregnant' as I genuinely thought I was just experiencing symptoms from coming off the pill.

I don't even know why I started testing early this time I'm usually so good at waiting haha, but literally been testing since 8DPO literally everyday 🙈 I'm due AF in two days and I'm going to hold off, I have no idea this time round, got same period like feeling as I got with last two pregnancies but seeing negative just makes me think it's AF. This has been awful never again will I test early. Good to know that you can get negatives then on day of AF a positive here's hoping the same happens to me 🙏🏻

I know it's all down to how much HCG is produced and when implantatlion takes place, am I right in thinking can happen 4-12 days after ovulation? So I still have time ha!

I suspected something was going on (I wasn't trying as such, decided to come off the pill to let my cycle sort itself out before we tried next year as I have PCOS and suspected endo) but I had some symptoms which I don't get when I'm coming on. I had cramping exactly a week before my AF was due. 4 days before AF I had one tiny bit of baby pink CM (like white CM with a salmon tinge, not spotting as some describe it) which I've never had before. I then realised the fact I had no spotting days before AF which I always do but assumed a delayed cycle due to the pill. I did a lot of reading on here and can say that everyone is different. Wait until the day you are due on and then test, especially if its upsetting to get a BFN. Good luck!
