How long before you got your BFP?

Hi everyone,

I am now officially 3 days post expected AF, have symptoms of pregnancy- sore boobs that are increasing in size, tiredness etc... I took a test on the day of my expected missed period and got a NEGATIVE. I was soooo bummed because I have been having signs for about a week. I then saw little bumps on my nipples that night and thought it was time to call my Dr. She explained to me that it could take up to 2 weeks to get a positive sometimes on a POAS. She advised me to take the test on Monday- another 4 days from now.

Has anyone had similar situations? How long until you got your first positive?

Good luck to everyone that is trying- baby dust!!!

I get your feeling. I am officially a week late today and I have taken test after test and not received a positive test. I have been having symptoms for about 3 days before my period was to start(3/6/08)!! Did you ask your Dr. if she would do a blood draw?

It's so frustrating- i did ask her and she said that she won't see me for a blood draw until I am two weeks late...
She said that sometimes it takes that long to get a positive. So here I am just waiting and wondering and hoping!

Baby dust to you!!! Keep me posted and I will keep you posted too!

I am not really sure what eveyone else experiences, but my BFP came back the morning of my expected period.

Thank you for that message. You are lucky to get a test result that early! It seems like all of my friends that were pregnant (2 on IVF, one charted religiously, and one was a suprise) got early test results. The IVF and charting is understandable since they were really checking everything at all times. I have been TTC by doing the BD as much as possible and PRESEED. This was my 4th month trying and my first month using preseed and also the first month that I am late ever in my life.

I am going to take the test monday (St. Patrick's Day- how's that for luck!) I will keep you all posted and any other feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Deana

What a great Valentine's day suprise for daddy!!! He was probably blown away. How lucky for you to be able to remember that special day that you found out that you were pregnant forever! Hopefully that will happen for me on Monday!

Thanks again!

HI!

Thanks for the pics, they are definitely a help. I unfortunately threw out the HPT's that i took that may have had a faint line (trash pick up was friday!). So here's the situation. I went off the Nuvo Ring in October and had my yearly pap in November where I told the DR we were TTC. She said everything looks healthy so give it a go and call me when you are pregnant. OK...

TTC from that point on. Husband travels a LOT for business so Dec and Jan were pretty crazy and not very regular for BD's as it should be. Feb we really concentrated and he stayed nearby the whole month and we used preseed to make things even more hospitable. I wasn't charting since I was having regular 28 day cycles since being off BC. Lo and behold, day 28 comes and goes and I said -wow,this could be a possibility. Sore boobs, lightheadness, a little more tired than usual, bloating( this happened from the point of ovulation on). Now I am 8 days late. Took a digital test yesterday but dropped the flippin thing a few seconds after i peed on it. It bounced off the tile and yelled (not pregnant). I ejected the tip and it didn't even show the control line, so the thing busted when it fell.
I then took a EPT regular + or - test and got what looked like a minus with faint blue specks up and down where the plus sign would be. My eyes can't tell if that is a faint plus or what but the blue specks are there.

I checked my basal body temp this morning since the HPT's are giving me headaches and got a 98.2 upon waking up. That's pretty high so I am encouraged.

My Dr won't see me until I am 2 weeks late and said that it is common for some women not to get a BFP until 7 or 8 weeks or longer. I am soooo bummed because I just want to know instead of behaving like a detective to find out if I am. I feel pregnant, this month has been sooooo different with symptoms of light cramping, sore boobs, and lightheadness. I have never been late in my life so this is really annoying. What do you think? I am bummed to be one of those women that my Dr talks about that don't get a positive until late......

Thanks!!
Deana
