DH would DIE if he knew...

I had 8 HPT's under my side of the sink! LMAO - I broke down and bought 5 dollar store ones (which says compare to EPT and isnt that high HCG- like 100 or something? Ok, going on peeonastick.com LOL) and then I have 3 FRER! Tomorrow I am 3dp5dt - when is everyone's vote that I start testing?! I am kind of motivated to start tomorrow but I dont want to crack out the FRER's too soon, I believe them to be more accurate than the dollar store one's, at least in my mind (maybe because they cost more hehe).... Your vote?!

I started to say that you should test out the trigger, but then remembered you had a FET. I'm not one to ever believe a BFN earlier than 12dpo. So, if you start testing now and get a BFN it's easy enough to shrug them off as too early because it must likely IS too early. If you're going for accuracy, I would say wait until at least 7dp5dt. Of course a BFN at 7dp5dt might still be too early, too.

Well it is easy to shrug off a BFN, although it still sucks seeing it Smile I tested with the Dollar Store brand this morning at 3dp5dt and got a BFN... I couldnt even sleep right last night so excited to wake up and pee on a stick LOL... I was hoping to be lucky enough to see a faint line but its completely white on the testing side... aaahhh well, I figured now that I have started I might as well keep going and test everyday until I run out of tests LOL Last IVF, I couldnt bare to use a HPT, I was afraid of the answer but this time, I am dying to know!!

Well I was going to say that I agree with Beth on waiting until 7dp7dt but I saw your post. LOL

Now I say go for it every day and just see when it starts to appear. And please be sure to update the board every morning for us POASaholics Wink

If you want a for sure answer, I'd wait. But if you are just wanting to POAS and have then, then do it! Just don't get too frustrated if they are BFN.

I will be the bad one and say start asap Wink However I had purchased 50 so...I didnt want mine to expire;) You just have to be prepared to see a BFN on 3 days and not to let it get you down! I just LOVE seeing the very first inkling of a shadow of a line which is why I am an early tester. Most people dont get a positive that early because really its the equivalent to 8dpo...so just keep in mind if you do see a negative, on average its a whole 5 more days before you should test.
