Hi I currently have 4 DC so have had no trouble conceiving with my partner in the past. We are currently on the third month trying so not long but I’ve taken some tests. I’m 9DPO so I know it’s early but I’m so impatient! I’ve had backache for the past week, sharp pain on my right side and vivid dreams every night for the past 6 nights in a row.. can anyone see anything on this test or am I actually losing it at this point?

Sorry, this is a negative, I don't see a line. But 9DPO is still days! Best of luck! 🧚🏼‍♀️

I cant see anything sorry but I would think 9dpo is quite early still so you're still in it! I read on average most women implant on 9dpo and then it takes a few days for the hcg to build up.
Good luck! Xx

@ScottishLassie91 @eloiseislost Thank you both for your replies! I think I will give it another week and if no AF test again smile

I'm so sorry @Bluee91 ☹️ Last month was my first TTC for #1 and AF reared its ugly head 4 days early! So I had lots of chocolate and a glass of wine! 🍫 🍷  Be kind to yourself! And may this new cycle end with a BFP! 🧚🏼‍♀️

@eloiseislost Thank you, the worst is I did a FRER and I had what I now imagine was an evap but it was clear as day so I had my hopes up then 2 hours later AF makes an appearance. Oh I’m sorry to hear that 😔 hopefully we both have some good news heading our way soon!

@Bluee91 That's similar to what happened to me. Did a FRER, only mine was clearly negative, and a couple of hours later AF arrived. Gutted! It total, I wasted 4 FRERs last cycle! This time I will try not to test until I'm late, I had my DH hide my 4 remaining FRERs! grin

@eloiseislost 🤣 Isn’t it so hard to not test test test!! Even when you know it’s too early?! I did 3 in one day just in case the first and second were wrong.. we just torture ourselves

@Bluee91 Exactly this, we are torturing ourselves! I suppose this whole process has so many unknowns… And it all happens inside our bodies! And we have no clue! So no wonder we are grasping at straws to get answers!

To me, it was so much less stressful when you couldn't test. With DC1 I had to miss two periods before the doctor and midwife would consider me pregnant. With DC2, you could get a test sent away by the doctor, but you had to be a few weeks overdue. I knew anyway with that one as I was vomiting before AF was due. With DC3 after a big gap, you could buy a test. I got a BFN so carried on going out and drinking. Several weeks later I woke up feeling sick and did another test which went blue immediately. I feel sorry for people that get up their hopes and suffer disappointments. We never had that in the 70s. I was often late with severe bleeding, but nobody wanted to know especially the doctor!

@perfumeistooexpensive Oh wow I never knew that! Yeah I think the waiting and testing is very stressful, with my other pregnancies I was always already 6-9 weeks before I found out and that was because I still had spotting each time and assumed my period had come! Since then my cycle has been so all over the place I never 100% know when I’m ovulating or due for AF so it’s a massive guessing game.

@eloiseislost I really hope we get the answer we wish for soon! Keep me updated I would love to know if you have positive news!! smile

@perfumeistooexpensive You are right, thank you for sharing your experience! Very interesting, I have often wondered what it would be like if we didn't have virtually unlimited access to pregnancy tests.

@Bluee91 Thank you so much, same to you! I will keep you up to date! smilethanks

@eloiseislost I have decided this month I won’t allow myself to test early, I want to wait until I’m due for AF! Easier said than done but DP has taken my tests for me an hidden them 🙈 Can’t keep torturing ourselves x
