Anyone keep getting BFN on FRER before AF but were actually pregnant?

I'm probably clutching at straws here, but I really feel pregnant this month (similar signs to when I was PG with DS), but got a second BFN on FRER this morning and I'm only 2 days away from AF.
I don't know when I ovulated this month but had what I think was implantation bleeding on Saturday (7th) - see my other post.
So what I wanted to know is, has anyone else had BFN on a FRER before due on AF but then got a BFP later?
Just that I would have thought I would get a + on FRER this close to AF, so does that mean I'm out this month?

Thanks xx

Sorry I can’t see a line on that one. I got a bfn on an frer then had af then got a positive on an frer a week later which went on the be able EMC.

10-8 days app initially thought I was due on day 37...but I've always thought 40 is my average xx

Katnissx Thu 12-Dec-19 19:57:16

@CatEnabler When are you planning on testing again? Good luck! Maybe see tour GP next week if still BFN and see if they'll draw blood?
I'm testing with a FRER in the morning but not feeling very optimistic 😣

@Katnissx How are you doing?

I've been given a blood test for lots of things: thyroid, PCOS, menoP, pregnancy etc etc

But I can only have it done on the third day of my period.... Problem is, who knows when that's going to be! So have been told to wait for another month then get it done... 😢

I'm now a day late for AF and testing negative.. will keep updated if AF comes or get my BFP.. good luck to you xx

Katnissx Tue 17-Dec-19 23:19:27

@CatEnabler I'm glad they are doing bloods but that is annoying you have to wait!
I'm now 5 days late, no sign of AF lots of EWCM. FRER this morning BFN. I've decided to stop testing now and just wait for AF to come. I'm almost certain I'm not pregnant. Think I may have had a chemical (see other post) due to symptoms and possible early positive test. Feel glad to have made a decision about it as I was driving myself mad being in limbo! Xx

@Katnissx Yes making decisions always helps doesn't it. Lots of baby duet to you for the future xxx

I'm so worried I've got early menopause sad My mum had it at 40, I'm 32... AF feels like it's gone on a sabbatical.... I was tempted to get the test done today but I'm run down so I'd get false inflammation results.

It's so bitter sweet...just as I start TTCing...this happens 😢

Baby dust not duet confused

I had a clear BFN on a FRER, then the day after I tested again and got a faint line on a FRER and a pregnant on a digital clear blue smile

I’m CD34 and had 2 BFN on CB early detection, last one took this morning (had FX for Christmas miracle haha). Longest cycle I’ve had is 39 days since TTC (last month was 31days) so could just be a late one this month. Had 2 day spotting CD24/25 so really hoped this was the month for success but now I think I’m just late.. gotta love the body and it’s ability to play tricks!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas anyway! 🎄✨

Katnissx Thu 26-Dec-19 23:37:42

@CatEnabler yay for AF! (Don't say that very often!)
I'm still not sure what exactly is going on with me, I had pink spotting from Sunday for 3 days and gone back to normal CM today :S seeing as my most recent periods have been quite heavy and lasting 18 days this is really weird for me! Also got high ovulation test today (not peak just high), but still BFNs (haven't been able to stop testing 🤦‍♀️) would be CD47 for me if that wasn't AF (which it didn't seem like). Weird weird weird! xx

@Katnissx thanks 😁 I heard somewhere you can get a high ov test reading before your AF... But I didn't lol! Going for my blood test today. Xx

Really sorry to jump on this thread
Im going mad confused
Last saturday i got my first faint bfp
I tested the next day and got a bfn
Im now 2 days late and tested this morning and got another bfn
I know im probably not pregnant but cant get that first bfp out of my head sad x

Katnissx Fri 27-Dec-19 19:11:51

@CatEnabler how funny, I had bloods done today too (not for HCG, but for thyroid and iron etc).
@Posierosy unfortunately that sounds like a chemical pregnancy 😔 sorry x

@Katnissx yeah mine included that to, all in all it was thyroid/ hormones/ beta HCG/ diabetes/ plus full blood count. The nurse who gave me the slip covered all bases bless her! How long do we have to wait before results? I always forget to ask....I think it's 2 wks isn't it? I said to DH this evening I bet we end up having to go down the IVF route and have twins when previously I'd always thought that'd be the worst thing ever! Funny how life turns out blushgrinXx

Katnissx Sat 28-Dec-19 18:39:27

@CatEnabler that's really good they are covering all bases! My Dr basically said they wouldn't worry about a missed period and maybe test again in a week (when I would be 3 weeks late!). I was told to ring up Wednesday for them so hopefully it's the same for you. Ahh I hope you don't have to go through IVF! How long have you been trying for? Xx

CatEnabler Sat 28-Dec-19 19:10:36

@Katnissx I only think they're covering all bases as it's another ≤60 day cycle for me in the space of 6 months. So definitely not undetected pregnancy which fingers crossed it might be for you Xx
The more I read about my symptoms I'm hoping it's under active thyroid....we've not been trying long at all but with my family medical history I think the nurse was err-ing cautiously.
That's good you get them Weds, I've read online that I might be able to get them 7 days after them being taken so will wait till then I think.
If it's under active thyroid I think all I'll need is the missing hormone and it'll all be good again (finger's crossed!) Xx
What about you, when did you start TTC?

Katnissx Sun 29-Dec-19 17:44:54

@CatEnabler ahh good, I hope you get some answers. Yes I think a thyroid condition can be treated fairly easily.
We haven't really been trying for that long (that's not why I'm having bloods done), we have been trying for about 6 months. It feels longer though as we wanted to try sooner but I had to wait for AF to return after breastfeeding xx

@Katnissx Have you had your results back?
I rang today and thankfully there are no abnormalities. I think the nurse practitioner said to then arrange another appointment to further investigate and arrange a scan, probably to check for pcos cysts I'm guessing? But it was such a relief to know at least its not early meno.

Hope you're all OK xxxx
