I'm currently 17dpo (periods only been missing for 4 days) and I got a negative on a dollar store pregnancy test. I have a feeling that I am pregnant and want to know what the longest amount of time someone had to wait before they finally got a positive on a test.

Edited, Sorry, I read your question wrong. I got positives before my period each time.

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.

I got a very dark line day 28 of my cycle. I normally would've gotten my period around day 24. I didn't test til day 28, when I was offically due. I suspected I was pregnant a week before that.

eh, with dd I didn't get a clear + on a home test. I had a really light not sure if it's + or not and then a negative at the clinic and thought I wasn't. Until awhile later and I got one at the Drs to be sure

With each pregnancy, I tested positive as soon as I had a test done.

So, it went like this:

#1: 14 dpo
#2: 13 dpo
#3: 16 dpo
#4: 10 dpo

My cousin never got a positive hpt. But it was like that with all of her pregnancies I believe.

I know you don't have any children yet, but have you had a positive home pregnancy test before, and if so, how far along were you?

I don't know what dpo means but I took 4 pregnancy tests before I got a +. The last one was about 4-5 days after my period was supposed to start.

ETA: dpo = days past ovulation?

I didn't get a positive until after I'd missed a 2nd period. I don't remember the exact dates, but I had AF in late Jan, no AF in Feb, and tested pos in late March (after AF should have come the 2nd time) after testing neg several times in late Feb and early March. I had a dating ultrasound b/c my periods can be a little wonky and we weren't sure when in those 2 months DS had been conceived, but from the US it looked like he was conceived in mid-Feb before the 1st missed AF.

I've heard of many people being pregnant and NEVER getting a + on a dollar tree test.

I was at 13 and 14dpo.

I'd get an FRER or a CBE.

According to EPT, my 15yo doesn't exist. I was a month and a half pregnant, took a test and it was negative. I was so relieved. I went to the health dept to get on the pill in order to avoid future scares like that and found out I was prego. Oops.

Dollar store tests SUCK!!! I had never used them before but this time I tried it out. I ended up stressing out testing compulsively and starting to believe I was either very sick or going into very early menopause and then I finally broke down and got a clear blue easy digital as a last ditch attempt. I had a window for my period but even by the lastest possible date, I was six days late and still getting negative dollar store tests. I believe I was really more like 10 days late.

Out of everyone I've known in person who have taken those tests, they've ALL had problems. A pregnant friend even took one when she was 7 months along to prove to me that they don't work. But, people here seemed to love them and I was strapped for cash so I tried it. Never, ever again. I was so stressed out and I spent a ton on the tests anyway (a dollar adds up pretty quickly). Get another test, any kind.

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.

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.

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.

#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....: .
