Testing at 9DPO?

I should be 9 DPO tomorrow ... I bought FRER's tonight and I desperately want to take one tomorrow !

What kind of results have you gotten at 9DPO?

I think I'll probably end up taking one and then making my husband keep them for a couple days if it's negative. Having them in the house makes me want to POAS so badly Blum 3

I'd probably test even though I'd expect a BFN.. Im a POAS addict as well..

Thats why I buy the IC tests to satisfy my urge from days.. 7 (i know I know its wayyy too early but I figure just incase I miscalculated my O date hehe) and then i figure if I get a BFP or anythign that resembles it-i'll use one of my FRER's..or if AF is late I will use one as well.. then I dont waste so many!!!

We were at the dollar store today and I almost bought some of the dollar tests but I knew it would just make me want to take the FRER more ... I didn't track my O at all but according to different sites I SHOULD be 9 or 10 dpo tomorrow ... I'm hoping I might actually be 10 and get a BFP. My cycle could still be pretty messed up from going off the Nuvaring. I've had a lot of CM and cramping that started when I should have ovulated and stopped about two days ago. I've been super tired, but that could be because I have a two year old Smile

With my first pregnancy I tested for the first time on 10DPO, but given how dark the line was (not super, but it well visible) I think I would have gotten a line on 9DPO too. With this pregnancy I don't think even a FRER would have given me a line that early. But I was only testing with cheapy strips at that point, so I'll never actually know. By the time I picked up a + on the cheapy, I was 14DPO and the FRER came out plain as day that day.

I think it is a good plan to let yourself take one, but hide the rest, so you don't waste them all. Smile

Same here. FRERs are just way too expensive to waste too early. I took a FRER at 12 dpo and got a negative, so 9 dpo could still be too early. I got a super faint positive on some cheapies at 15 dpo, so I took another FRER and had a nice dark positive. Smile

I totally understand how tempting it is, and I caved during my last cycle, but I have to say: testing at 9 DPO=don't. I didn't test with DS until I was already pretty sure I was pregnant. AF was still a day or two away, but I kind of knew I was, and got a dark positive. This time, I have let myself get pretty obsessive and started testing at 9DPO only to continue to be disappointed. I wish I had waited and just gotten the negative in the first place, rather than hoping and analyzing and thinking I had just tested too early for 5 more days. My advice is to try and keep yourself busy and distracted for a couple more days! That is my plan for this cycle...I'm not even going to buy any tests until I'm 12 DPO, and then still try and hold out until 14 DPO.

It really does depend on two things, I'd say... 1) is that you have know yourself and whether or not you can handle the anguish of possible BFNs leading to a BFP, or BFNs leading to a period. If you're going to get TOO upset, etc, then don't test early.
and 2) it really depends on your body, and your implantation process, because as I said before, I got a totally clear BFP with my DD on 10DPO.

I tested this morning and got a BFN. I know it's not over, but I'm pretty sure it is. With my daughter, even though she was a BCP baby I just had a feeling I was pregnant. When AF didn't come on time I wasn't really surprised. I don't have that right now, so I think I probably won't be testing again until AF is late.

I wouldn't count yourself out quite yet- Especially if you only THINK your 10DPO based on websites, because I've noticed most websites give you an earlier O then real life (they go by 1/2 way through your cycle) even though I have a 30 day cycle I don't O until like cd21 so thats 6 days later then websites would even tell me, so you could be really early still!

AFM, im just gonna start testing at like 8dpo with IC tests haha
They're cheap so its something to pee on, but I wont use a FRER until either I get:
A. a positive on an IC
B. AF is late

Because I figure if I started testing at 10dpo and use a frer everyday until AF that'd be at least 5 frers, so thats like 50 dollars a month, x however many months I try for, so I feel that I should use that money towards...idk.. could buy a crib in the amount of months I'vebeen trying, haha..Or if I ended up trying another year I could of bought... a lot of things!!!

What helps for me is to hide my pee cups/tests out of the bathroom,s o when I go pee in the morning I dont think ab out it til I sit down, and then its too late Smile

My 9DPO tests were negative. My EARLY MORNING 10DPO tests (we're talking 3am) were BARELY BARELY BARELY visible. Same thing at 8am and noon. Those were internet cheapies.

But I swore I could see a 2nd line on those tests. So I bought 3 FRER. I used one on my FMU that I saved. It was a light positive, but definitely positive. Then I used the 2nd one on my 4pm urine that I held in for 4 hours. It was even darker! But still not as dark as the control. I can't wait to use my 3rd one in the morning (11DPO).

So 9DPO can be completely negative, and 10DPO can be barely positive.

Here's the 4pm 10DPO test:

The internet cheapie test results wouldn't show up in the photos.
