How many days after missed period did you finally see a positive on a pregnancy test? - Page 2

post #21 of 40
I was about an hour late. No kidding. You could set a watch by my cycles, and they were always 28 day cycles. And for some reason, I always start bleeding right around the same time (9 p.m. ish). So when I left work that night and realized that AF hadn't shown up yet, I stopped at CVS and got a pregnancy test which tested positive when I got home. I think I was 10 DPO.

I wasn't late, I just had a feeling. My period wasn't due for quite a few days.
Took a test, and it was clearly positive.

I got a + on the day my period was due, but that was a clearblue test.

With my first 3 pregnancies, I didn't test positive until my period was late, but they were all surprises and my AFs have always varied in length, so I can't even be sure when I O'd (wasn't charting). With this pregnancy, I tested + at 9 DPO with a dollar store test. Of course, the heartburn was the real first + pregnancy test.

Can you get a blood test? If you call your doctor's office they can probably fax a script to a local lab.

I'm strange I didn't even test with my #1 until I was around 7-8 weeks late. Yeah the nausea and everything else clued me in and I was still in disbelief, but I didn't chart back then. With ds I knew at 4 dpo, but got a + on a test at I think 13 dpo. This time I was 27 dpo before I tested and got an immediate + I probably would have gotten a + sooner, but I was scared to test.

I got my first bfp on the day af was due on a dollar store test. It showed up on a regular store test a few days later.

With dd, I first tested and got a positive at about 14 dpo. With ds, I tested and got a positive at 9 dpo, which is pretty early.

Good luck.

I say get a beta.

#1: 12 DPO Strong positive (not tracking cycles, estimating...you know I only took one test with her pregnancy )
#2: 10 DPO Faint Positive (not tracking cycles, exclusively breastfeeding, estimating)
#3: 11 DPO Faint Positive (tracking cycle, ovulation predictor test)

I switched over to using OPKS specifically so I knew exactly when I ovulated rather than guestimating. Mainly as I was nearing pretty close to 42 weeks...didn't want to get transferred out of the midwives care (it's a law here at 42 weeks).

So, with #3 I started testing at 9 DPO. You can sort of see something at 10 DPO, but at 11 it was pretty obvious.

I've got about 70 pregnancy tests here under my bathroom sink. I'm not kidding. I ordered in bulk cheaply from a lab company. So, DH had better not be done at 3....: .

Since my cycle length has been varying lately, I don't know if I'm 2-3 days late or "due" today or pre-menstrual for another few days.

So far both EPT tests I've done have been negative. I'm going to wait now until I'm sure I'm really late, though the waiting is very difficult.

I don't have a clue how many DPO I was, but I got a + the day before my period was due with a Dollar Store test.

I got all my BFP's the day before or the day my period was due. Or I just felt a little funny (which would then lead me to think about when my last period was and such in my pre-charting days).
post #34 of 40
With my dd, I was 10 days late before I finally got a BFP. It was so frustrating, especially since I was almost positive I was pregnant.
post #35 of 40
DD1 & DD2 and both my m/c's I tested the day AFTER my AF was due and got FAINT BFP's each time.

I kind of have a feeling I *might* be right now (but I am probably wrong! HAHA!) and tested yesterday in the afternoon and it was a BFN, I am due for AF tomorrow (monday) or tuesday.

I think it does just depend on the person....I think I may be one that has to wait till AF is actually late, seeing as how I only got FAINT + with all my pregnancies AFTER AF was due.

I am 2 days late and had only gotten BFNs. Guess it is just different for everyone. I have had signs of AF for a week now and she still is not here.
post #37 of 40
While my last 2 pregnancies gave me BFP's at 8 DPO, my first one didn't show positive until 18 DPO, even though the day before I had just tested negative (I started testing at 9 DPO).

I think the best pregnancy test is YOU. The only time I ever got a positive HPT was when we were trying for our first. The second time I took TWO HPT's and both were negative, only to discover I was pregnant 14 weeks along. I was breastfeeding at the time and i don't care what anyone says, I think that's why it didn't show up! If you think you're pregnant, chances are you ARE!

hi, Im in the same boat have two little girls and for baby 1 I was 3 days late when I got a faint one on a cheap test so went and got a clear blue, with baby number 2 I was extremely ill and exhausted so to rule it out I took a clear blue 4 days b4 and was 2 weeks preggy. Now Im 6 days late and got a negative everytime but this is not normal for me, not sure how long to leave it b4 I worry

Every woman is different - my bfp's were at 9, 10, 11 and 14 dpo, but I believe many women haven't gotten them that early.
