Well the hubby and I didn't do too much to make sure I was O'ing this month when we DTD. Actually he got home about 14 days after AF came (on the 14th)and we just DTD for the next 4 or 5 days. Problem is, I am not sure when I O'ed this month. I didn't take any temps, plus AF was 2 days early. Also on about the the 17th my opk came in the mail so just for fun I took one of them. The indicater line was almost non existant and if I had Oed only 3 days back like I thought may be possable then it would have been a little darker than that. Did I O way sooner than I expected? Anyways. I figure with it being so light I should just go ahead and think that the 14th was when I Oed plus that was the first day we started DTD and also it was dead smack in the middle of this cycle. (If my cycle doesn't act up this month.)<br><br>
I have these HPT's that say you can get a pos result at 6 DPO. So I am around 10. Should I just chalk this up to a cycle lost?<br><br>
IDK. I think this month was a bust. Anyways I should start AF on saturday and I am already getting cramps so I assume this cycle is going to be short as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br>
I guess I will POAS again on thursday or friday.

It's not over until AF shows her ugly face! 10 DPO is very very early. Even if your test claims it can detect as early as 6 DPO, the fact is that you may not be producing any pregnancy hormones yet, depending on when implantation would happen.<br><br>
I've read that 25% of pregnant women don't get a BFP until 14 DPO or later... even with a sensitive test.<br><br>
I'm a POAS addict, so I'm not one to talk... but if you can, wait a few days before testing again.<br><br>
Good luck!!

10 DPO is too early to give up, especially if you don't know when you Oed.

I had a negative blood test on 10 DPO. My 2 year old negative blood test is currently sitting on the floor playing with her sister! Give it a few more days!

Too early, I'd test again in a few days.

Wow, really? Uh oh. You guys are giving me that little thing called hope again. LOL. Thanks everyone for your comments. I am trying to wait to POAS again until the end of the week but easier said than done. I am going to try my best to at least hold out until thursday. Maybe even friday.<br><br>
I am having some weird things going on with my body but all of it could just as easily be pre menstural symptoms. I am trying really hard not to get my hopes up. I only have a few more days before I find out due to a BFP or AF. It should happen friday or saturday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/praying.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="praying">: Please oh please let it be a BFP!!!!!!<br><br>
Dh is really turning up the heat about a baby. He treats me asthough I am pregnant now. The other night he put me to bed and fed me (literally fed me) banana split ice cream while I watched law and order. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><br><br>
We only have 2 more months to TTC before he goes back to Iraq. I hope we can do it.

My OB says just not to break your heart with the Neg HPT, hang on until the date of the last AF. So if it was 29.3. then you can test on 29.4. But i know ladies who have tested Neg on blood test and after 2 weeks tested positive. Hand in there! Run another test after 5 days.<br><br>
I have done enough HPT in the past and can assure you i know how low it can put you. My past cycles have been 28 days and this time am holding my horses. Am already on 28th day and no AF. I will stick in there until i wind up the date of last AF. But am still discouraged by past BFN and currently feel i shouldnt even buy any HPT. If it happens, let it happen. Am set for a BFN so let it be a suprise.<br><br>
All the best<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
