its probably not too early - but don't be surprised if it is negative and at 14DPO you get a positive.  

if you can hold out - it's always better to wait until 14 dpo!!
good luck.

They are soooo right!
WAIT, i tested saturday on day 28 and got a -ve. This morning at day 30 and -ve. But i think i ovulated late this month. I didn't track it but i have this sensation so i've got a digital test and i'm gonna wait till friday if SHE doesn't show up in the meantime. Good luck to you and try and stay calm.

I buy 7-8 dollar store tests at a time!!!! I am a total POAS addict!!!! I am 11DPO, and yes BFN's since I started taking them (one a day since 7dpo), however I have had extremely sore tender breasts since 4dpo along with light 'af like' cramping (cramping only last 3 days) breasts still sore and af is nopt due until next monday!!!! Call me crazy but I rushed to the $tree store and bought in bulk, LOL. I was tempted today to buy better ones at target, the first response!!! Good Luck and Baby Dust!!!! I HOPE & PRAY this is our month!!! Also I took the $tree brand 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter, I believe it was the third brand of test I took and it was not as clear as FRER. But I think everyone is different!!!!

I looked at my $tree test box and it said it detects 25m hcg so that is pretty good. I makes me sad tho because I took another one this morning (13dpo) and it came out negative also. I have alittle hope but it is fading. Every time I think about it I want to cry. I sure hope this is our month!!! I will pray for the both of us....and all you other ladies ttc!!!!!!

It is very upsetting. I cried my eyes out the day I got af last month. I cried so hard I said to my daughter, lets go take a nap, we slept for 3 hours. The slowly but surely I regained composure. I always say I am not going to get upset, esp. when everyone around me is getting pregnant almost instantly, but I still run out and test over and over. And it's funny because I didn't start stressing this bad until yesterday, for this month! LOL I just took another one too, BFN! And sadly, now I am getting sharp af like pains in my right side now while yesterday I had sharp pains in my left side. Well 6 more days until af is due, we'll see! Good Luck!!!

Yes it is very upsetting. My DH just does not understand why I take it so hard and he is kinda insensitive. I cried last month until I had a horrible headache then went to sleep. Right before I test I tell myself "well you know its going to be neg again so be prepared" but still when I only see one line I am devastated!!! I have not tested yet today (14ddpo) but my bb's are still very sore. No AF as of yet but we are planning a trip out of town to go Christmas shopping Friday and I'll bet she shows her ugly face on that day! Good Luck to you/and me and keep me posted :)

They can be insensitive at times! 12dpo bfn this morning. I read a post that was made today that 50% of pregnant women will test negative 12dpo, and one third of pregnant women will also test negative 13dpo and 1 in 4 women test postive only after missing their period (I believe that's what the last statistic stated. I hope they are right b/c at 12dpo and 14dpo it's very stressful. I am already planning on what I can do better next month! I told my hubby that the special baby stuff I will collect in jars and freeze myself and use it all during that O time! Haha!!! We both had a good laugh!!! Trying to keep our heads up :)
I'll def keep you posted!!! You please do the same!!!

I completely understand...my husband is a darling, but he doesn't know what to do/say when I get upset after a BFN. Just keep trying...hopefully it'll be everyone's month.

I think I am going to have to agree with you 'bevfly', I think thats the only we can do right now this close to the end of the 2 week wait, esp. for us that have to wait an extra few days after 2ww due to our longer cycles :/ , is to remain positive. We have each other and if this month doesn't pan out we have next month! ~postive thoughts~positve thoughts~Baby Dust to us ladies!

Thats is funny! How long is your cycle might I ask? I have a 32 day cycle and it feels like it drags a tad longer....Monday is only a few days away but it feels like another week!

Ok so I tested again today 15dpo and got another BFN. I figured as much so I am not really that upset. I do have a question tho...my cycle is usually 32 days long, so does that mean we should test later? What are those extra days for? I am expecting AF Friday. I was thinking about taking a few months off because I didnt want to feel crappy for the holidays but I would really like a BFP for Christmas!!!!    :)

MyPreciousHailey-I think I read the same article so maybe we all still have hope.   :)

I have a 32 day cycle too.  It just means our LP is longer than most.  You can still test 14 DPO because you would almost 100% have the correct answer.  Good luck.

I know what you mean with taking some time off esp for the holidays. I know this is ridiculous, however, I have been praying like a son of a gun that I would get a BFP this month because I am even more excited to put it in our family's first chirstmas letter since we moved away from all of our family this year! I know I know odd reasoning I just thought that would be a perfect surprise for christmas. Well I hope the witch stays away tomorrow, I still have to wait until Sunday/Monday to see. I am so bold, later on tonight I want to go to the store to buy some really good tests unless my hubby tells me to wait, haha. He said we need to invest in stock from first response!!! haha Not a bad idea?! I am 13 DPO today and yes I got a BFN (dollar tree brand), loosing hope but also planning for a friskier next month!!! Good Luck!!

Keep me posted :)

I am so confused! I read so many posts from when people get their BFP, and I would like to know what cycle day they got it and how long their cycles are along with the brands of tests they use?! I know it's probably too much to ask, its just so confusing.

I usually have a 31 day cycle (when meds actually make my cycle normal) but whenever I ovulate I have 16 days from that day and I get AF. So my LP is over the "normal" timeframe by two days. It doesn't matter at all :) I still get BFP around the time others do. It should hange that - I wouldn't think...who knows :) Lots of people don't get BFPs until 14-17dpo. Good luck! Hugs and SSBD to you!

Yes it would be a nice surprise to tell the family over the holidays! I think woman and their bodies are so different that we just cant predict how early we would get accurate results. I wish I could say from now I am going to STOP testing before AF is due but I know that would only be a lie. I just cant help myself. I also checked my $tree test and it is pretty sensitive 25m so that is just more depressing. Good luck to you ladies still on the tww train and fingers crossed for the rest starting a new month!!!
