Trying to conceive

I have been known to test at 6dpo. I know it’s crazy, but I’m crazy!
I haven’t really tested for the last few months but when I was I generally started at 10dpo (still far too early I know!).
How about you?
31/05/2013 at 11:22
Normally about 7 x
31/05/2013 at 11:23
Yup, been there at 6dpo
Normally around 9/10 dpo I start to get a little manic.
I've promised myself no more until I actually miss a period now.

I take a test whenever I have a symptom (as I'm not tracking anything these days).
Sore boobs - take a test
Queasy - take a test
Tired - take a test
I probably average one a fortnight. All cheapies of course.

I think the earliest I've tested is 7dpo but thats normally if ive just bought a batch of ICs so have loooads to play with lol! Most months i test from 10dpo which is still way too early but if I have ICs in the house it's like I HAVE to use them! Hence this month I've not ordered any so I won't test until 12dpo (LP is 11/12 days) and will use an asda cheapie or something and that's only if I don't have spotting as I normally spot 2 or 3 days before AF when not pregnant.

About 10dpo but I try really hard to wait until after AF was due. I got my BFP at 12dpo so always think that's a good day to test for some reason

I think last time I tested at 10/11 dpo and got a faint positive.

Pre MC it was before id even ovulated, but to be fair i never realised or understood my longer cycles so that is excused.
After MC, i didnt really test intil the day or two before af.
Last month tho i did test at 5dpo just to get the 'testing' out of my system. Then i did a couple between then and AF arriving.
This month i am gonna try and get to atleast 12DPO!

I would opk from 7dpo, super drug early test from 9 dpo if I didn't have a positive by 11dpo I knew I wasn't pg that cycle. I used to have vvv regular cycles
31/05/2013 at 12:49
I think 10dpo was earliest. I never test on a week day, has to be a weekend so I must have some self discipline!

Hmmm that's interesting CP about the OPK testing. I am a POAS addict so I can see myself doing this.
Just incase I happen to do this, in theory of course, are you just looking for a strong line on the OPK or would any kind of line indicate a possible BFP??
31/05/2013 at 13:02
Not going to lie I used to practically poas on a stick every day.
31/05/2013 at 13:20
You are looking for a strong line, by 7 dpo it should be almost non existent, so a strongish line is good but obv they shouldn't be used as preg tests but being a tad obsessive I used them then progressed to hpt about 9dpo! Got isaacs bfp at 9dpo on a super drug test. Heart nurse got her bfp at 8 dpo
31/05/2013 at 15:41
I'm TRYING to avoid testing til after im due. However, I dont know when I'm due now as my cycles are messed up from the MC.
I would say anyhting before 10dpo is insane haha! x

I am an absolute POAS addict so from 8dpo!! I have no self control and can't gave tests in the house most of the time as i can't help myself.
I have had 3 BFPs and never got a line before 12dpo, even then they are very faint. With P i didn't get a line until 14dpo. So i really shouldn't torture myself from so early on!
31/05/2013 at 17:15
I've only tested when I'm late. I figure there's no point otherwise.
31/05/2013 at 18:42
I don't. I wait for AF to show and she always does! If I test now it usually on the day AF is due or the day before if I can't stand the stress anymore and just want to know.

We have been TTC for 2 months, this being the second month. I tested at 8dpo because I have been feeling exhausted, bloated, moody, etc... since 3DPO. My test was a BFN. I am going to wait and test again at 10dpo. Stay tuned... and good luck to everyone
