Around 4dpo and a bfp?

Hi girls, just wondering what you all think of this? I'm about 4dpo although I can't say for certain as this is our first month TTC. I know the rules, you're supposed to wait 2 weeks before testing but as soon as I got into uni this morning everyone wanted to know if I was "up the duff" yet. (It's my final year so would be a lovely end to it) - on top of my struggling impatience I caved in knowing I wouldn't get a bfp so soon, how ridiculous! But something strange did happen..

I've had almost period like tummy aches for the last two days, but they could be completely unrelated and probably are, would just be interested in what you girls thought of these strange 3 lined tests?

4dpo is very early to get a bfp. I don't know if it's even possible?! I wonder if that's an evaporation line. The only way to know is leave it a few days and try testing again. My earliest bfp was 10 dpo and even then it was vvv faint. Good luck!

Are the photos taken within a few minutes of taking the test? If not then it's probably an evaporation line. implantation is what causes HCG to be produced and a positive test and that happens 6-10 days after ovulation so it's very unlikely to be a positive test unless you've got your ovulation dates wrong.

Are you really telling your course mates that you're ttc? You must be heading into the exam period - are you sure you want the extra pressure if other people's expectations right now?

Wow, slightly personal/judgemental but I'll answer your question anyway. Yes, I'm in the middle of writing my dissitation, and yes I have told my course mates that me and DH are TTC. No, it doesn't add to the pressure, infact quite the opposite. It means I can talk about something other than our finals and equally express my impatience towards getting the BFP. Thank you for your concern though, much appreciated.

Also, these are two different tests taken between a 5hr time frame, I understand how ovulation works and I'm pretty sure you're right, they're evaps, i was just checking for other opinions.

I would say it's invalid. The first pic has dye run so not accurate and you should never have three lines so that's invalid too.
Wait a week and try again! Good luck to you 😊 X

It's not possible to get a positive test at 4DPO as implantation won't have happened yet. So either you've miscalculated your dates or it's a negative test/evap line.

I think the tests are faulty.

At 4dpo it would have to be picking up HCG from the previous cycle, because you wouldn't even be producing it yet. If you had a proper period last time, that's unlikely.

I'd try another test, maybe wait a few days.

I also did a test at 4dpo this month BTW because my mum was visiting and it would have been lovely to tell her in person as we live overseas smile Of course, it was totally negative. Now I'm at 15dpo I have a little squinter of a line.
