AF every month 27th
Last AF December 27th
positive ovulation test Jan 15th. DTD 14th & 15th. AF due Jan 27th.
When is the earliest you would test?
I'm definitely not imagining it but have more discharge than usual, stomach always rumbling even while eating. Gas, horrendous low back pain and cramps. Sorry if tmi.
I know alot is common AF signs....but you know how it is when you are hopeful.
Thanks x

Same sort of boat with symptoms although I'm late now and had this test this morning. I'd test with a frer or some cheapies if you can.. good luck

9days earliest squinter (at best) and 10dpo still faint but more obvious for me

I always wait until the day that AF is due. The 'is it isn't it', squinting and urge to test multiple times a day is more annoying than just waiting a bit to take a test.
Good luck.

If you can hold out I would wait until the day AF is due, as a PP said your less likely to get those squinty lines, and if you did get a BFP you don’t need to be anxious about if AF will come because it already hasn’t smile

Thanks all
Just hate the wait and the guessing game!!
@Baublebox I don't know how you have the willpower to not test till AF is due!!

Against the grain i test from 7dpo til AF arrives! I couldnt cope without line guessing, editing pics & staring at blank tests 😂😂

Moominmiss Thu 21-Jan-21 09:08:16

I’m rubbish and would always start testing from 7dpo 😂

I did get my bfp this time at 8dpo, but in the past I’ve usually seen something by 10dpo.

I like to wait. When I first started TTC I used to test 6 days before AF was due but was always disappointed when it was negative and as I was using clear blue digital it was costing me a fortune haha!

My cycle lengths are all over the place so never really know when AF is due so decided to now wait until I deffo know AF is late.

This month predicted AF should have come yesterday but nothing yet however it could come anytime up until Tuesday.

Fingers crossed for you.

AF due on 26th here. I have been using IC's as my brain has gone into overdrive thinking I will get a BFP, as have lots of symptoms.
I ordered a FRER yesterday, so that should be here today or tomorrow. I promised DH I will not use it until the 26th. Also they are so bloody expensive!

Sesamechick Thu 21-Jan-21 09:46:15

What symptoms you having?
I'm due AF on the 27th
I feel really positive (no pun intended) about being positive but trying not to because of that feeling if I get AF.
Fingers crossed for all us hopefuls xx

Extreme lower back pain was one of my first symptoms, last week I was in absolute agony, could barely move, thought I must have done it while sledging with my little boy! Got to the weekend and my period did not arrive but I didn't think much of it as my periods fluctuate each month, decided to finally test on Monday and there it was BFP! Fingers crossed for you! Xxx

TheDaydreamBelievers Thu 21-Jan-21 09:52:58

I test with a FRER from 12DPO. Although when I got a BFP I had waited until day AF was due (sadly MMC at 12 weeks)

Sesamechick Thu 21-Jan-21 10:02:45

Yes!!! Exactly how I would describe my back pain. Honestly don't remember this with my other 3 kids. Felt almost like spasms and I keep telling myself I must have slept funny because I don't want to pur my hopes high! So happy you got your BFP!

@TheDaydreamBelievers so sorry lovely. Wishing you good news and soon!

@Sesamechick I have had nausea on and off for a couple of days, boobs feeling uncomfortable with more little veins noticeable, heavy feeling in lower abdomen, slight cramping, headaches and lightheaded if I stand up too quick. If there is no bfp this has been the worst pms ever! 🤣

Sesamechick Thu 21-Jan-21 10:08:38

Sounds promising! Let us know once you test!
Like an idiot (even though i knew it was a bad idea!) I took a cheap test this morning and was negative. Ahhhhh

MrsC89 Also due on 26th. On 6,7 dpo had the most horrible cramping and then it completely stopped. Other than that no other symptoms. Today I feel bloated and not sure if that's just AF coming?

MrsC89 Thu 21-Jan-21 10:29:53

My FRER just arrived... so tempting!

Praying4aRainbow Thu 21-Jan-21 10:40:20

@Sesamechick yeah sounds the same!! It's like right at the bottom of my back almost at the bum crack if that makes sense 😂 so so painful! Fingers crossed its a sign for you 🤞 xxx

JenIsAGem Thu 21-Jan-21 10:42:17

Hi ladies, I got a positive OPK on the 13th so predicted ovulation on the 14th, had really bad cramps that day so pretty sure I ovulated!

That makes me 7dpo today and I'm tempted but know it'll be BFN at this stage...
I got an obvious BFP at 9dpo with my first baby, squinty-faint in the morning but clear in the evening. I did test at 8dpo too but it was negative - even though I did have that feeling that 'I just knew'.

I may test with some wondfo cheapies tomorrow at 8dpo blush

Sesamechick Thu 21-Jan-21 13:04:58

Ahhh thats exciting
What is wondfo?
Good luck tomorrow!!! Let us know xx

My last AF was 27/12 ovulated 10/01 I have been really gassy, tugging feelings low down - not cramps, I also bled at 10dpo, assumed AF was early. It then stopped and discharge has continued. I’m 12dpo today and got my BFP, had BFN previous days. I’m a serial POASer 😂

Sesamechick Thu 21-Jan-21 13:16:30

Yayyyyyyyyyy congrats!!! So exciting!!
Is this your first? X
