Tell me your late BFP experiences?(9 Posts)
Currently 11dpo, stupidly did a test early yesterday when I was 10dpo and got a BFN.
I know implantation can happen day 10 at the latest which might be the case here (hopefully, fingers toes and everything crossed)
So has anyone every got a BFN then BFP? Or just a BFP after 12/13dpo?
Going to test at 13dpo and hopefully get my BFP then. If not I guess it’s try again next month!
Anyone? Feel like I’m spamming MN (apologies!) just looking for a tiny ray of hope I guess
I don't have a success story I'm afraid but if you look at these statistics, 34% of women don't get their BFP on 10dpo. It's possible you're one of them. Like they often on MN, you're not out until AF comes but I'd try to put it to the back of your mind and wait at least two more days to test. Good luck!
@galatea098 thank you! Yeah really hoping I get a later BFP!
My friend got a negative 14dpo then a positive 2 weeks later (when she still didn’t have AF) so just trying to reassure myself that late BFPs are possible and not to write myself off!
I know you are looking for positive experiences, but I just thought I'd share my thoughts with you, hoping that my torture will help you in some way. I am only on cycle 3 TTC #1, so I don't have much experience and I've never had a BFP. The past two cycles I've been obsessively testing from 8DPO until the day of my period, all stark white BFN! I kept telling myself that "it's too early" or browsing Mumsnet looking for women who had a negative at xDPO and then a positive. Every day, most of the day, it was consuming. I guess the point I'm trying to make is if you test early, all you're doing is peeing on a fiver (or however much the HPT cost). Because, really, you are not looking for confirmation of the pregnancy, as AF is not late yet, but rather you're looking for a BFP. And you won't really accept any other result. If it's a BFN, well, it's too early. If there's a hint of a line, you'll look at the test under every single different light in the house, take it apart, take photos of it, invert the colours, increase the contrast, post it here, pray that someone else sees what you see. And then you'll pee on more and more fivers, your heart breaking a little at a time when a line doesn't appear.
It sounds harsh but I don't mean to. I'm writing this first of all so I can read it again and again and save myself some pain in a few weeks time -hopefully, though I doubt it!
I'm sure there are a lot of people who got a BFN early on and then a BFP closer to AF or shortly after. Some women didn't get their BFP until 14, 20, 25 etc DPO. But these women actually ovulated later than they thought. Viable pregnancies implant between 6-11DPO. Research has shown that implantation after this timeframe has almost 0% of producing a viable pregnancy.
For others, including myself, a BFN was a BFN and never turned into anything else. The truth is, you don't know until AF arrives -or not.
I sincerely hope you get your BFP soon and that a sticky bean is making themselves home inside you as we speak! Best of luck!
Hey I got a BFN 12 DPO on a frer and then 14 DPO BFP on various tests including Clearblue digital.
Don't lose hope ❤️
Thanks everyone! I’m being realistic and thinking it’ll most likely be negative
But still hopeful? I am still trying to think positive so in two minds at the minute
Thank you for the advice
BFN 9 and 11 DPO didn't test again till 15 DPO when AF didn't arrive and got a very obvious BFP. I was sure it wasn't my month when I got a BFN at 11 DPO but I must of implanted late. Don't give up hope
Sorry I can't advise but this threat has gave me hope . I tested yesterday at 11dpo . AF due today or tomorrow and still no sign. Can't test again until Saturday so hoping AF stays away long enough x
