How early did you get you BFP?

Ok probably the same old thread but how many days before af did you get a BFP? And with which test?
I'm not due till the 22nd of April so 10 days but I bought a boat load of dip test of eBay they say they are the 10mlu ones and have been doing one every morning for the last 3 days!!! Plus just bought a few superdrug ones but want to save them until it's more likely to give a positive if I am pregnant!!
Kinda crazy I know but found out 4 days ago that my coil was pretty much hanging out of my cervix so they have taken it out and know I just have to wait and see!
Have been feeling so sick for the last week, dizzy and my boobs are aching plus bloating (my work trousers are now tight and 2 weeks ago they were massive!!) but worrying it might just be my paranoia rather than pregnancy!
Would love another baby but just want to know now I hate waiting!!!!
Thanks guys!!

4 days before I got a strong positive with - I think - Superdrug own brand. Hope you get the result you want - but be aware all those changes you've noticed could just be hormonal changes from coming off the coil. If you have conceived, it would be only just and couldn't explain the tightness of your trousers.

I know the trouser tightness is crazy, I can't explain it either but definitely going on a diet if I'm not pregnant!! just can't shake the feeling in pregnant, this would be my third and I feel more lousy than I did with the first two!!
Shouldn't be any hormonal changes though as it was the copper coil so no hormones in there!!!
Really hoping for a positive even though it would be unplanned I love babies!!

Not an expert on the coil by any means - but does it not affect your cycle? If so, you'd expect your cycle to change again now you no longer have the coil and so there would be hormonal changes.

...mind you, I was positive I was pregnant from 5dpo and I was right... smile

No the merina coil is hormonal but the copper coil is more like a barrier method just gives you slightly heavier periods but doesn't effect your cycle at all!
Kinda freaking out since I look like in 4 months gone I know that isn't possible since I haven't even had a positive test but something is growing inside me as I have doubled in size in the last week and I'm normal a comfy 8 something is growing inside me and if it's not a baby I'm terrified it's something bad!!!!!
Got myself in such a state about it I'm so close to ring my partner and asking him to come home from work I am going crazy!!!!!

I didn't get a bfp until the day before af was due, and that was with the 10mlu dipsticks, it can take a while for your hormone levels to rise and everyone is different. Also would depend on your cycles and if you ovulate early/late - so many variables! That's why the internet cheapy tests are great grin

11 or 12 dpo each time. With internet cheapies.

BFP at 10dpo with an internet cheapie for me.

StrawbRhi Tue 15-Apr-14 09:29:14

I had a vague positive at 9dpo which didn't get any more visible until yesterday when I took a Clearblue and a digital! Still only 14dpo but remaining hopeful that this sticks.

My trousers are feeling tight too, but I remember bloating badly by 5 weeks with DD too. I was in maternity jeans by 6 weeks as I couldn't bear anything around my stomach.

Blueshine Tue 15-Apr-14 13:03:53

I'm currently 7 dpo still getting BFN every morning but can't stop testing!
Only £2 for 10 cheapies on eBay so don't feel to bad, thinking of using a superdrug one tomorrow morning will be 6 days before af they have the same sensitivity as the eBay ones so not sure if it will make any difference!! Have been feeling so sick the last few days, sort if comes in waves but worse morning and night, not sure if it's morning sickness, a tummy bug or just me over thinking things really want to know NOW!!! I am hating the 2WW!!

Very, very faint BFP with first morning urine originally 5 days pre-period and using 10miu internet cheapies. Confirmed next morning by another cheapie and completely obsessive testing on all sorts of further pregnancy tests. Suspected I ovulated a tad early that month as after my 12 week scan my due date crept forward a couple of days as well, hence probably explaining the early BFP.

I got very very faint positive 10dpo, so faint I put it in bin and when I put summit in bin later I noticed it had a faint line like 45 mins after test. That was a tesco 2 pack. So.... Tested again in morning and same happened then bought a clear blue and it proved pregnant 1-2 weeks. I'm now 18 weeks smile good luck x

7dpo with internet cheapie. So faint it was barely there. But it was!

GingerScouse Fri 18-Apr-14 11:55:17

10dpo with internet cheapie, confirmed with Cb digi. I ended up having my EDD moved forward as well.

Blueshine Sun 20-Apr-14 18:23:44

Thanks for all your replies, I'm still getting negatives every morning I'm still not due for another 2 days but getting really down now thinking I should be getting positives already hmm
Has anyone else tested negative this close but still been pregnant? Really want this to be the month as DP wants to wait another year or so before actively trying if I'm not and I don't want to leave it to late and miss my window, I'm only 25 but have a family history of early menopause hmm
