Hiya, im convinced im pregnant this month. I tested this afternoon with one of the internet cheapie tests and got a bfn, am 4 days before af is due and 12 dpo. Is it time to resign myself to another bfn month or do i still have a fighting chance?

When did you all get your bfp's and did you get bfn's before hand?

I know im clutching at straws but this will be my 14th month of bfn's sad

Any advice would be appreciated

Definitely not; I didn't get a positive until I was two days late. Up until then, all were negative.

Thats really good to hear! Thankyou. Few symptoms are there but they could be pre af symptoms too! I was so positive about it this month, dh works away in the week so we use clearblue fertility monitor, i know we did the deed on exactly the right days this time sad.

Congrats on your bfp xxx

No! I tested four days before my period was due with a Superdrug test that said it could work from then and got a negative - I only tested (not really TTC, but not NOT TTC ifyswim) because I felt sick, knackered, had tingly boobs and a weird taste in my mouth. Still felt funny the day I was due on, tested again and bingo! Positive.

I reckon it's probably to do with when sperm meets egg, if it happens really quick you'd get a bfp 4 days early, but if it was the slower sperm you would need an extra day or two to get enough HGC in your wee smile

I know it's really hard but please try and step away from the test sticks for a couple of days and don't feel too down if it's not your month. Fingers crossed it is though! xx

Noo! I only got a BFP a week after period was due (regular cycles) and that was with one of those posh 'tell you six days before you're due on' tests. Similar thing happened to my friend. Good luck x

With both my DS only got BFP 4 days after AF was due! With DD got BFP 4 days before AF due?!?

So def agree with twinkle depending on when the magic happens it will vary the result timescale!

Fingers crossed for you x

Hell no, I tested the day before I was due on and negative, didnt test positive until a week after smile

I tested 4 days before my period was due and got a negative. Tested three days before and got a negative. Tested the day after I was due and got a positive and am now 12 weeks.

The accuracy of most tests is much lower before your period is due, even when they say they can pick it up.

Thanks for all your advice. Has made me feel better xxxxx am going to wait till sunday :D xxx

I waited till 3 days late and got my bfp. Definitely always advisable and a good way not to waste money to wait until at least day af due if you can! Hard, I know! Good luck smile

Have you tested yet?

I'm currently in a similar position, although now day 6 after AF due with 4 BFN so far. Reading the other replies has reassured me that there is yet hope, and I will wait a few days before trying to test again, hopefully for a BFP this time!

Any news MrsK?

captainmoll Sun 16-Oct-11 16:55:05

I'm in this boat too.
SO frustrating getting BFN's when there's no sign of AF at all. Reckon I will try very hard not to do another test for a week if still waiting. I hate waiting.. impatient soul at the best of times. I'm trying to persuade myself it's just a freak cycle, but there's always a niggling hope I can't shake.

Good luck everyone!

Bry, has the doc done blood test? One of my first symptoms of pregnancy is always period like cramping about a week before I am due.

I think you need to go back to drs to rule anything else out,esp ov cramping just to be on the safe side I was checked for ectopic due to ov pain on one side,was ok thankfully.

Also,sorry to hear about your seperation, could stress be a factor in delaying your period perhaps? I hope you get some answers soon, good luck x
