I am 8 dpo and for the past few days my breasts have been sore when I take my bra off. Its only my breast area not the nipple. They feel very heavy when my bra comes off. I have also been extremely tired. Almost like I can't wake myself up... My period is due the 26th but I am hoping to have a positive test before then. I have used a couple dollar tree preg tests and they came up negative. Does anyone have any experience with these tests? I hope I am pregnant... fingers crossed and many prayers are much appreciated!

Those $Store tests are good, but not as sensitive as some of the other tests out there. You can buy the 10 miu early tests online for early testing and they are cheap (under a dollar each + shipping) at early pregnancy tests. com 

 

First Response Early Result (FRER) is the go-to brand for early and accurate testing but is more expensive. 

 

peeonastick.com has sensitivities listed for all the tests. 

I'm in the same boat. I am hoping to be pregnant and due for my period on Saturday. 

 

Good luck! Hoping you get your BFP pos.gif!!!

Yes it is generally agreed that the dollar store tests that require an hCG level of 25 are just as good as generic drug store tests, Answer strips, and FRER.  The consensus seems to be the evap lines are more common with blue dye tests than with pink dye test early on, so keep that in mind when testing.  While some women get accurate results as early as 8 or 9 DPO, most of us need to wait until around the time of expected AF... 12-14 DPO.  You are 10 DPO today right?  I would definitely try testing tomorrow with first of the morning urine.   Good luck and post pics if you're not sure!
