Cheated...

Cheated this am and tested with a FRER early 5 days results.
I'm due Saturday (24th) and tested today the 21rst.....so 3 days earlier.... and ....
BFN.
Sad
I'm disapointed..... wanted a 2012 baby.....
But I guess it's not over till the witch shows up.....
I`ll retest Saturday if I don`t have my period by then....
Good luck with all of you guys!

Those are really not as accurate 5 days earlier, I think by 3 days earlier it's still only 50% so you are not out yet!

I will keep my fingers crossed for you and hope that it was just too early.

Ditto to what everyone's said. It's probably too early....I would wait a few more days and test again. Good luck!

Hugs!!! I hate those BFNs. I wish we could all stay away from POAS, that way we could reduce those BFNs. Early BFNs are the worst! They mess with your optimism and hope. Stay hopeful, it is still early!

Vicky, just to let you know, on my last BFP I got -s until the day AF was due. So there is always hope! Some woman just don't get early BFPs. I have everything crossed for you!

I tested with a FRER 4 days (CD 27) before AF was due and got a BFN, 3 days (CD 28 ) before AF was due in the am I got a BFN and in the pm I got a BFP but it was super light (DH said nothing was there), I tested on the am 2 days (CD 29) before AF was due and it was darker. So results can change that quickly and everyone is different. Hoping the witch stays away and wishing you a BFP and 2012 baby~!

Vicky- how many DPO are you?
it seems to make a difference then how many days til AF is due
My BFF tried to get me to test 3 days before AF- but since I O so late that's like 7dpo for me!!
I wouldnt count yourself out til the witch shows!
So many people I know have gotten BFNS even after AF is late!!

I love hearing this because most of the time it seems like I read posts from women who tested positive at some ridiculously early point, like 7 dpo. I get the idea in my head that testing at 8 or 9 dpo is a good idea and then get bummed out when it's negative (even though probability says it will be negative then!).

Beth- I agree. There are some people that test that early and get a BFP and that makes me think I can... but I know it is rare! Holding out is better!

FF told me today that 15.9% of women get BFPs before 9dpo. I really didn't want that reminder.... Last time my BFP came at 13dpo.

I know, and it's awful because you think to yourself, 'if it's negative today then how can it be positive in 1-2 more days'. It seems so final at the time Sad

That means that 84.9% of pg women would be getting a BFN at that point. Wink
