I am 13dpo,my AF comes between 28 and 32 days. Today is day 31. I took a HPT this morning, was BFN. I read that you should be 16dpo for it to show on a HPT. I don't know what to think and I'm tired of waiting. Any advice or past experiance with this problem would be great! Thanks

Oh, I hate not seeing that 2nd line!

Well, if you're 13dpo (so am I, by the way), I'd wait another couple of days. And I'd use one of those tests that say you can test 3-4 days earlier than normal. That way you're more likely to catch a smaller trace of the hormone in your urine. I think you're right, I think you need to be over 14 days dpo, 16 is probably better. So test again in a couple of days, and I hope you get your BFP!

I agree. If I don't get AF tomorrow I'm going to test monday morning with FMU. And actually my husband came home today with a HPT that tests 4 days early. So maybe that will work. I may even have enough patience to wait a few extra days. All depends on tomorrow morning! I always get it first thing in the a.m. Good luck to you also! I hope we both get BFP's! Thanks! letty

p.s. I read your profile...I also live in the pacific nw (wash.)

I love what you said about your family and husband,i thought it was hilarious because i know exactly how you feel.Thanks

So, are you testing tomorrow?

If AF manages to stay away, I think I'll test. I'm nervous, though! What if it's positive?!? You know, I've spent the last couple of years secretly hoping our b/c would fail & I'd "accidentally" get pg. And now that we've been trying, it's just wierd. Sometimes I doubt I'll ever see that 2nd line. But, I shouldn't complain. I mean, it's only my 3rd cycle.

I hope AF hasn't shown up for you!

I will test either mon. morning or tues. morn. If AF is no show tomorrow, i will use FMU tues. Every time i test i hate it because there is always only 1 line. So now i dread doing it. I am 14 dpo and cd31, so i think it should show up on an early HPT. I so hope so. this is only my second cycle but so impatient. I know how you feel about it being positive. It would be a wonderful dream...I hope and pray for both of us. Please let me know how your test goes! +++positive+++ vibes! Letty

Hi

Well, according to what you wrote, AF is only a few days late. From my experience, it is sometimes too early if you test right around AF time. I think the best thing to do is wait even until you're 17-18 DPO and test again.

Good luck to you, (((((((((hugs))))))))))
