Well, put it this way.. I tried testing at 12DPO and got BFN, then I tested again at 13dpo, BFN again.
I tested at 14dpo, BFN again, then I waited and tested at 16dpo when AF was 2 days late.
BFP, BFP, BFP. So it took me a few days to register, when I got my blood test that wednesday or thursday (2-3 days later,) my levels registered at 50hcg.
That means when I tested my levels were right about 25hcg. had to have been, and I used the + - EPT brand.
A week later I tested with the dollar store brand and got a VERY light BFP. it never showed strong BFP until 3 weeks after my first BFP. I'm now 19+weeks pregnant and due with a little boy in September
I tested positive with a very faint BFP on 10 DPO....however, if I could do it again I dont think I would have tested so early...it is kind of unnerving to test positive before your period is due..its a constant worry wondering if it just might show up and ruin everything....that was just my experience though.
im with ziggy , i would wait at least till i was 14dpo or a day or two before af is due,with first response. The wait is horrible and you always think you have all the symptoms and they prove to be wrong most of the time.. hope you the best..
I got a BFP at 12 DPO. Sadly, it ended in miscarriage. Some pregnancy tests can detect hcg levels as low as 25. I used the pharmacy brand (CVS) test first and got a faint line, then bought First Response and got a dark line at 12 DPO. I think some tests could show a positive result around 9 DPO or 5 days before your period, but most doctor's will tell you to test after you miss your period. (I just don't have the patience for that!) My cousin didn't test positive until 19DPO, so I think everyone is different. Good luck to everyone ttc!
12, 13, and 14 DPO I got VERY VERY faint BFP's with First Response Early Result Tests. I bought the pink box that contains 3 tests. TOOK EM ALL!!! haha I couldn't wait either, so you're not alone... I'm now late for AF, so I'm pretty sure that although they were faint, they were indeed POSITIVE... I'm going to test again today or tomorrow to make sure before I schedule my doc appt though. Keep us posted.... Good Luck!
