Just found out and expecting #5...due April 10th My first pregnancy symptoms were fatigue, nausea, bloating, cramping, gas and tingling/heavy feeling of chest area. However, my biggest sign was testing soon with a + test at 9 dpo! Anyone else test this early and if so...which test did you use and find out? Congrats to all of us expecting and best wishes to those hoping to be...
I have read/heard that one can test + as early as 6 or 7 dpo, but wasn't sure about when showing a + with a generic one not as sensitive. I normally use Early First Response, but picked up a 3-pack of the Equate brand at Wally by accident. That is why I am questioning and still in disbelief...(twins???)! However, I am officially supposed to have started my AF cycle today and nothing...not even spotting
Everywhere I can find has those tests rated at the same sensitivity as stated by the manufacturer and in clinical testing. The old version of the FRER tests were sometimes much more sensitive, but those were phased out quite a while ago. I think the only women who get positives before 7DPO (those are rare to start with) are those who have pregnancies as a result of IVF where implantation tends to happen sooner. Even then, implantation has to occur before you can see a positive pee stick and very few pregnancies implant before 8DPO.
Don't you wish there was a test that would tell you when you had implantation and how many babies are coming? Oh, and the exact date of birth while we're at it would be nice too
