Testing too early

Why do I do this to myself? I've been having some symptoms, nausea, a little cramping and exhaustion, so I was excited about testing, so excited that I couldn't wait until cycle day 14. So, I tested yesterday at 10 DPO and got a BFN. The box had several tests in it so I tested again this morning at 11 DPO and got another BFN.

So, now I'm wondering if today was still too early. Last night, I saw a teeny tiny baby at Wal-Mart, and my heart just ached to hold one of my own. Tessa keeps begging us to have her a sibling. I know she's tired of being an only child.

I'm trying not to lose hope but that's kind of hard. Can you get a BFN at 11 DPO and still be pregnant?

Hmmm... We found out about 7-8 days after conception. BFN's on the home tests but a BFP on the urine test at the doc's office.

I've still got my fingers crossed for you that you will get your BFP during your 3 month time frame~

I think that it is entirely possible that you have just tested too early. I think it also depends on the brand you are using. Both times, I had BFN on one brand and BFP on the digital. I think both BFPs were on CD 13-14. I will be thinking of you, just as I was on Jenna's 6 month angelversary.

The only times I got BFN's was when I wasn't pregnant - but I always waited until at least 13 DPO. I discovered that seeing a BFN was way too hard on me (it always made me cry and be depressed for days), so we agreed that I would never take a test until I was at least 3 days late - 17 DPO.

I'm so sorry you're having a hard time. I've never had to deal with fertility treatments so I can't say I know what you're going through, but I do remember the huge disappointment I would feel each time I wasn't pregnant. We're all thinking about you!

I was wondering when you were due to test!

I really think it depends on the person! We got our BFP at 8dpo, but my gf didn't get hers until 16dpo!

I think it's entirely possible that you still could be! Don't lose hope yet hun!
