I'm sort of new here! I spent some time on the loss threads almost 4 years ago. We have finally decided to try again. I'm 5 DPO, and I want to test, like, now.  That works sometimes, right? (just say yes.) But seriously, I don't want to wait for 10 DPO - how early is it not crazy to test?

 

No symptoms, yet. I get hyperemesis gravidarum with my pregnancies so I feel like I have a legitimate need to know NOW. I'm eating protein and green vegetables like crazy this week trying to prepare. Very excited but nervous, too. :)

 

I actually have my yearly appt with my doctor tomorrow, and I'm hoping he'll do a blood test. But I should go ahead and POAS in the meantime, right? Definitely.

So, dang. No one replied fast enough and I POAS with an FRER. It was negative (obviously). I was hoping for an evap line or something to obsess over, but nothing. Sigh. 

 

Anyone else out there? Is there a testing-early-nutjob thread I'm missing?

Earliest I ever got a + was 8 or 9 DPO with this one (FF disagrees on O date with me) but I had symptoms before that so I was pretty sure (tired, lumpy breasts.)

Hey lollie! You're not new! :P I DO remember you from the loss threads.

The earliest, I ever got a + was 8 dpo on a FRER. I've seen them at 9 and 10 dpo with good results, too. Think of it like this. If you were doing IVF, they wouldn't even put the embryos back until day 5 blastocyst or day 6 when they're hatching. And, until they hatch and start to implant, you can't possibly get even the faintest hint of a +. So, if they hatch on day 6 and start burrowing in on day 7, the earliest you could even possibly see a + would be the morning of 8dpo. And, that's only if they're running early and you're body's very sensitive to HCG and it metabolizes it through your kidneys quickly. Lot's of if's.

Good luck though! It's good to see you around.

But wait, could it really be true?

Hi, Xerxella! Good to see a familiar face! I haven't been back to the loss threads - I wasn't sure if there would be any of the same people around. 

 

I guess I keep rationalizing that, I'm actually 5 days "post-peak" (for creighton) but maybe it's really 7 DPO. Really I should know better - just super impatient. But I think that wasted test will make me hold out a little longer. :)

Galatea - I love your picture. How beautiful!

 

In the past I got positives at 10 DPO, but I don't think I ever tested earlier. I'm going to try to hold out at least until Saturday which is 8DPO, but I am definitely very tired today!

Thank you!

I was tired before my +. Did I say that already? Anyway, FX for you!

Well, I tested again today at 7 DPO. Still negative. I need to just go buy a bunch of cheapies so I can just go ahead and get it out of my system every day. 

 

I saw the doctor yesterday, he said we could do a serum test at P+12. I said, aw that's cute.

Early tester. Its so bad that I busted into the bathroom on DH the other day and said,"Quick! Where are the tests? I need to pee on something". Now .he knows how wacky , I mean impatient I am. It was 5 dpo? What was I thinking5. I thought I was being good and wasted my last frer today 8dpo. I kid you not I stared at it. Took pictures and tried tweaking them with different effects..thats bad. Do I fit here or is that a whole new level of crazy? I just want to know sooo bad and I temp and its rising with a dip at 5dpo~fx. Ive read that some people do get a + at 8dpo so I did it. I think I might ask hubby to stop at $teee and get some cheapies. I keep feeling crampy in my abdomen. IMPLANTATION? yep. Need more tests, stat.lol. fx for all.

Dollar Tree is the way to go. Always gave me early +.

I may have to do that next time.

AF started today at 14 DPO. 12 wasted tests. I'm feeling pretty down about it now. It took a lot of nerve to try this month and I'm not sure if I will again next month. Will definitely try not to test quite so early next time. I think I learned my lesson... Or maybe I'll buy the 100 pack of wondfo and just POAS every day forever?
