How soon did you get a BFP

I have been TTC for nearly a year now due to PCOS and I'm due to start clomid in about 2 weeks after DH has his sperm test.

I had a period (miracle) at the end of March and am pretty sure I ovulated. Anyway, I had cramping last week and very light pink spotting earlier this week. Suddenly I am exhausted at about 4pm onwards, have a 90 min sleep blush for the past 3 days in a row. Based on a pg app, I'd be exactly 4 weeks today but pg tests are negative so far. It's difficult for me to estimate when I'll be late as my periods are extremely irregular. I must admit that I probably regularly look for pg symptoms which aren't there. How soon did you test positive? Surely I should by now if I am in fact pg?

Been 1 year so far and nada.

Definitely doing everything right, just got to wait for our turn smile

Will go to doctors for tests in a few months probably as I'm 34

Wishing you all the best, it's exhausting isn't it!

Just to add, if you don't mind - get to the doctors ASAP. We were referred in Jan and due to various tests (ultimately I'll receive clomid shortly) it takes forever. The earliest sperm test appt was 2 months away by the time I'd had my appointment so id get the ball rolling without delay if I were you.

I was just thinking that I should make the initial appt now as it normally takes 2-3 weeks just to see a doctor smile

I got my BFP 10dpo. If your periods are irregular you could have ovulated later than you thought and that's why you're getting negatives. Give it a few days and try again

What test are you using? I've had frustrating results with ic's but just had a bfp with a pink one from Superdrug.

Plus, last time round, my hcg levels were pretty low so a bfp took about an extra week to show properly

Day 24 of my cycle but I knew that I had relatively short cycles (26/27 days).

Cycle 10 of trying.

I got my BFP on the day my period was due, so roughly 14/15 dpo. I got a strong definite line at that point but everyone is different. It was our 3rd month trying and I'm 33.

The only symptom I had was sore boobs until I hit 6 weeks, then loads more symptoms kicked in.

Best of luck, will be your turn soon I'm sure x

Both times I did not test until after my period was due so also 15dpo. Do you have any idea when you ovulated? I would aim for more than 2 weeks after that for testing. If you really aren't sure and still having symptoms, maybe ask GP for blood test in a week or just before you start Clomid.

In terms of symptoms I had sore boobs and increased urination from week 5 the first time. Nausea never developed and I unfortunately mc that pregnancy before it could. The second time, I had slightly increased urination and nothing else until after 6 weeks. Nausea started a little at 7 weeks and is still going strong at 14!

I got a faint positive 1 or 2 days before period was due I think it was 10 dpo. Best of luck!

Oh and the day before I tested I had a blinder of a headache and felt yucky enough to cancel a night out with a friend.

I hadn't even missed a period, I got a feint BFP at 3+4. We'd been trying for a year, and I did 8 pg tests in total. Each one showing more of a line. I did these between 3+4 and 5 weeks.

Good luck OP wishing you all the best thanks

Thanks so much everyone

Just over 4 years, clomid didn't work for me and neither did tamoxifen. What worked in the end was ovarian drilling and clomid, I'm now 31 weeks pregnant! I hope you get your bfp soon!

Got my bfp 3 days strong before AF

Twinklelittlestar1 Thu 28-Apr-16 18:46:41

Negative tests until day period was due (but on early tests I never used the morning sample)

Whisper of a line at 13DPO and a proper line at 14DPO. I knew something was up though as I have a short luteal phase and usually start my period at 11DPO!
