<p>And did you count the day your temp spiked as 1dpo?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know some tests say you can get a BFP as early as 8-9dpo, but I'm sure that's not the norm.  When did you start testing and when did you get your BFP?  What test did you use?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I know this has been asked before and I have been reading a ton, but I'm hoping to get as much input as I can.  Sorry if this has been asked to death.  I'm just so excited!!!</p>

<p>day 1 I think is spike day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I would tested no sooner than 10 or 11 days dpo. I got my BFP 12 dpo or 13dpo with DS.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>For me I'd feel sad about possible false negatives and getting my hopes up, but I was TCC for a long time. so I waited until I was pretty sure. My chart looked different than every other month when I tested for DS. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This surprise baby wasn't discovered until 8 weeks. <span><img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"></span> so no help there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>I agree with Dakotablue on waiting if you can. I got a BFP at 10DPO. (I had actually intended to wait a couple more days, but luckily it was pretty obviously positive at 10DPO.)  I knew my O date based on an OPK/symptoms, but I wasn't temping at the time so I can't say when my shift was. I would consider the day of the shift as 1DPO too.  Good luck!</p>

With ds I did not test untilthe day Af was due ... 12dpo the freer was blaring so I am sure I would have had a bfp earlier.<br>
With dd I got +ve @ 9dpo on ic, dollerama, and frer

<p>Thanks guys.  I've decided to wait until 11/24 to test.  That will be 11-12dpo and I have the day off of work.  I'm going to try to hold out until then.  Wish me luck!</p>

<p>Both my pregnancies my BFP was after I missed AF. This time I really didn't think I was pg, but once I hit CD 30 and 31 and no AF I knew something was up and tested.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I agree with the others here that said that day 1 would be the day it spiked.</p>

<p>With my DD I got a BFP at 9DPO with an ebay cheapo test. FRER didn't pick it up until two days later. I don't remember with my two DS's...this time i'm going to be safe and wait until 11-12 dpo...we'll see if i can last!</p>

With my daughter I don't know the dpo, but it was 2 days late for AF with smu and bfp was super dark. With my son we were ttc, and I tested at 8dpo with inconclusive results, clear bfp (on FRER, Dollar Store, and CBED) at 11dpo.

<p>Yep, 1dpo is the temp spike day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got a bfp on 11dpo with both kids.  I felt nauseous already and tested those days with a CB digital. I probably could have gotten a positive earlier because the CB one is only sensitive to 50 (whatever the measurement is) whereas some of the other cheapo ones are to 25.  I didn't get a BFP with the baby I miscarried until I was late, at 15dpo.  I had tested on 11dpo and 13dpo with bfn on both of them.</p>

<p>With my first I didn't even try to test until 16 DPO and it was immediately positive.  WIth my second I started testing at 8 DPO, but was neg then.  Got BFP at 10 DPO, though faint.  I'm TTC #3 and am 16 DPO and hoping for BFP tomorrow at 17 DPO!</p>

<p>With DD1 got a BFP on my first test at 6dpo</p>
<p> </p>
<p>With DD2 started testing at 9dpo and did not get a faint positive until 12/13dpo and even then it was not believable until 15dpo when I finally got a positive digital test</p>

<p><span style="color:rgb(128,0,128);">I also don't know what DPO it was (because he was a lovely surprise!)...  but I do remember AF was a week late.  I didn't even realise I was late, because I had been too busy finishing, and then celebrating finishing my degree!  <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="">  DH only clicked to it because my bbs were killing me!  Tested in the middle of the day....  and you know, I can't remember if it was dark or faint!  <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" style=""></span></p>

<p>I found out in a doctors office 9 days after conception. I had gone to the doctor for birth control, and oops!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They did a urine test and it came up positive. Then they sent me to the lab right away to get blood tests to confirm. HcG was 60. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Date (and time) of conception was known.</p>

<br><br><p>Not exactly, unless you happened to have an extremely magnified ultrasound at the exact moment conception occured (or were using IVF). Conception is not the act of BDing/DTDing... it is the moment the egg meets the sperm, which can be up to 5 days after you BD/DTD</p>
<p> </p>
<p>SO</p>
<p> </p>
<p>you could possibly have (and likely did) found out earlier than 9dpo! :D</p>

<br><br><p>LOL... I get what you're saying. I had been charting (temps & cm), and I knew when I ovulated. I also experience <span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family:arial, sans-serif;line-height:15px;font-size:small;">Mittelschmerz. </span>I know exactly when we "dtd" that resulted in conception, as we hadn't been together for some time before or after. Actually, our daughter was conceived through "pull & pray outercourse". Kind of took me by surprise  that we conceived, even though I knew I was ovulating. I noticed my chart was triphasic, but I didn't think I was actually pregnant until the nurses/doctor told me. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>What I find interesting is that HcG #s tend to be higher earlier in pregnancy if you're pregnant with a female child. I would be interested in seeing a chart comparing the dpo the pregnancy is confirmed via hpt & the gender of the child.</p>

<p><span>No, I wasn't answering my own post. :)  I was saying I ended up getting mine at 10dpo.  I tested a couple days earlier and it was negative.  I think it would have been positive at least by 9dpo though because I got the BFP on 10dpo at night.  DH was saying I was pregnant and I was adamant that I was not...it doesn't happen the first month and I didn't feel bad.  I peed on the stick to say, "See, told ya," and low and behold, there was a faint line...so I took 2 more (different brands) and they were much darker lines.</span></p>
