BFN 10dpo

Am I out?

Previous pregnancy I had an early bfp at 8dpo and then at my scan they dated me ahead by 8 days. So I must have ovulated/implanted pretty early.

I kind of assumed any future pregnancies would follow the same pattern. I maybe 'feel' like this month something is going on in there but stark bfn last 2 days... of even a hint of a squinter line.

Anyone's bfn turn into a bfp this late?

It's too early

Mumofboys17 Mon 11-Nov-19 17:03:45

Following - and to offer a hand hold!
I’m approx 10DPO today, I’m the same, first pregnancy I seemed to find out really quickly, this time feels a lot longer. Had BFN at the weekend.
Not out until AF turns up 😊

nicciw87 Mon 11-Nov-19 18:05:58

I got a bfp on what I thought was 12dop after having a negitive at 10dpo so there's still hope at my scan though by datesturns out I was probably 16dpo when the first bfp showed up

JK201 Mon 11-Nov-19 20:02:25

Thanks all. I'll keep testing until AF.

I've had a tube removed after an ectopic years ago and a csection a few years ago so the odds are stacked as it is.

11dpo update

Took a Tesco cheapie test today (have been using amazon onestep up until now)

See photo. Possible a very very faint line. Might be clutching here. Came up straight away but I hate blue dye tests for this reason.

Anyway they got excited and whipped out a clear blue digital i was saving - NOT PREGNANT.

any ideas??

JK201 Tue 12-Nov-19 07:18:36

Have opened test, because I'm 'one of those'

Hmmmm the line is very thin. But as I said it came up within a minute

Mumofboys17 Tue 12-Nov-19 07:21:50

I can definitely see a line!! Have you tried using first response as they’re meant to be more sensitive. Don’t get fully disheartened by the CB digital as they’re not all that sensitive. Maybe wait a day or two then test again?
I have everything crossed for you!! X

VCP88 Tue 12-Nov-19 07:25:26


Make sure it is you FMU. That was the only way I got my bfp on a clear blue and I was 5 days late! Also First response tests are by far the best. My first positives were super faint like that. Good luck x

JK201 Tue 12-Nov-19 07:27:04

Thank you @Mumofboys17 I'm off to Boots today to stock up on FRER.

Only another 24 hours until I can test again. Waaaaaaaaaaa.

Mumofboys17 Tue 12-Nov-19 08:08:55

@JK201 the wait is a killer isn’t it! Just keep yourself busy today a day can make a massive difference.
I’ve been using one step too, ordered some FRER’s but won’t be here til Thursday 😩 has BFN with fmu again this morning on a one step strip.

nicciw87 Tue 12-Nov-19 08:23:39

Just to warn you I had loads of false positive on Tesco's ones they are awful unless they are dark don't trust them. Frer best ones out there

JK201 Tue 12-Nov-19 08:30:00

I'll try with FRER or another clear blue tomorrow.

The more I google evap line images the more I'm stressing it is one of the infamous fake lines. It showed up straight away hence my confusion this morning. My line is definitely blue and not sure it's picking up on the iPhone camera but the line has thicker shadow/shading where the line would be so idk. Of course now it's been hours so any line is not reliable.

One step still stark bfn today not even a hint of a line.

VCP88 Tue 12-Nov-19 08:36:29

I thought my first one was an evap line. The only thing that kept me hopeful was it had some pink in it and wasn't grey! I've attached mine below.
I did a clear blue the day after and it was negative. I got a strong bfp 4 days late

Keep positive. Xx

JK201 Tue 12-Nov-19 08:46:50

Thank you @VCP88 gives me hope that I'm not imagining things.

Mumofboys17 Tue 12-Nov-19 09:29:29

How late are you now @JK201?

JK201 Tue 12-Nov-19 09:31:57

@Mumofboys17 I'm not 🙈 I'm testing 4 days early.

Mumofboys17 Tue 12-Nov-19 09:58:00

@JK201 Ahhh okay! Plenty of time yet then!! 🤞🏻

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 06:32:32

FRER was a glaring BFN this morning from the "first" test I took.

So obviously I took both tests from the pack!! and the second is a very very very faint line. It's pink and it appeared within 3 minutes. Much more obvious when I popped it open. I agree the photo is a real blink and you'd miss it.

The other test still very much negative.

So I'm probably clutching at straws hoping for something that isn't there.

I'm going to assume I'm out. Bugger.

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 07:17:56

Urgh I hate that feeling SO much!! Don’t lose all hope yet @JK201 it’s still early! Sorry you’ve had that this morning 🙁 puts a right dampener on things doesn’t it 😩
Do you know how many DPO you are?
Not out until AF actually shows up ❤️

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 07:22:29

I'm around 12dpo @Mumofboys17 so really by now it should be showing + and not having to open tests to see a line.

I'll try testing again later or tomorrow and see.

Urghhhh. What a pain.

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 07:22:53

Here's an updated pic of the dubious positive FRER. It's now been out in the air for over an hour so it's very possible these are evap lines.

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 07:35:53

Hmmmmm 😕 those lines do look a bit grey don’t they... I think if you’re going to test again don’t do it until earliest tomorrow Fmu (also for the financial impact as well! Tests aren’t cheap 😬)
I’ve been taking one step strip tests with fmu (got some FRER coming tomorrow) and they’ve been negative too. DH was sure he could see a faint line on yesterday’s but I’m not so convinced.
Maybe TMI.. but I had some stringy white discharge yesterday (similar to when I ovulate) so took an OPK and that was fairly positive! 😳 so dtd last night just in case lol as I’ve heard if you have an LH surge but don’t release an egg sometimes your body tries again? Wonder if it might be worth you doing the same?? Worth a try anyway! X

VCP88 Wed 13-Nov-19 07:46:23

@Mumofboys17 I think this is what happened to me. I think I ovulated 7 days later than I normally do. Wasn't tracking properly but based on the cm that's what happened. I dtd"just in case" too and for my bfp 2 weeks later!

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:07:32

These pics are rubbish so sorry about the quality, single test is yesterday’s one step strip with fmu, 2nd pic is yesterday’s OPK (taken around mid day ish) and both one step strips
I accidentally touched the test window on this mornings test so this mornings is a bit smudged 🙄

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:08:43

@VCP88 Ahh really!! Maybe there is still hope for me this month then 😂😂🤞🏻🤞🏻

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:14:24

Thanks both.

Hubby has been away on a business trip since cd15 so if I did ovulate late we missed to boat (or egg or whatever). I did get a pos ovulation strip so assuming I did ovulate as norm.

Having had a bfp in the past I know how bloody obvious it is when it does happen so I'm annoyed at myself that I'm here scrutinising lines.

Today is CD26 so I kinda know this month isn't our time. I'm due on by Friday.

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:35:31

@JK201 I know exactly what you mean. The first pregnancy was totally obvious and my FRER was positive within seconds! It’s crazy I’ve turned into this obsessive crazy woman that stares at negative pregnancy tests convincing myself I can see something 😬😂
It’s fine, if AF comes for us both then we can tackle the next month again 👍🏻 Xx

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:36:10

I’m CD 37 😬 maybe I’m just broken 😂😂

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 08:53:56

So frustrating waiting. How long have you been trying this time?

DS took us 2 months. Naively assumes of fall pregnant straight away again.

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 10:15:44

We’ve only been trying about 4/5 months this time, it took over a year for DS last time so to be fair I did expect it to take ages again but this time I’m prepared with OPK’s, pre seed and knowing my cycles can be long (longest is normally 35 days) so maybe I’m still within that time frame..
I’m not having any symptoms of AF coming but likewise I wouldn’t say I’m having pregnancy symptoms either lol I’m just in limbo!!

JK201 Wed 13-Nov-19 13:18:58

Because I just love to POAS I did a CB early detection (10mIU/ml) with second pee of the day which I held for 5 hours since waking up and it was glaringly negative so I guess that me over and out this month. ☹️

Mumofboys17 Wed 13-Nov-19 13:36:05

Me too. First response 👎🏻
Gutting.. BUT.. OPK again today suggests an LH surge may still be going on 🤔 will keep dtd til AF shows up, me thinks!

Mumofboys17 Thu 14-Nov-19 09:54:35

AF came for me this morning 🙄 at least I know now!
How are you doing @JK201 ?

JK201 Thu 14-Nov-19 15:48:26

@Mumofboys17 snap!

A day early and my period arrives. Obviously I wore white underwear to work so was caught out unexpectedly.

So it's onto next month of trying now.

See you same time, same place in a few weeks 😂😜

Mumofboys17 Thu 14-Nov-19 16:21:45

Oh lord.. White underwear always does the trick doesn’t it!! 😬😂😂

Hahaha yes most definitely, positive vibes and baby dust to us both! X

Mumofboys17 Mon 18-Nov-19 09:42:54

@JK201 Hiya, just to revive the thread, wondered if you’d heard of the Ovia fertility app? I’ve downloaded it going forward this month and it actually gives you a countdown timer for when you can take a pregnancy test! I’m not too bothered about the ‘fertile window’ bit as my body seems to go against the norm with that 😂 but hoping the countdown to testing might prevent me from testing too early this month!
Worth a go, right? X

JK201 Tue 19-Nov-19 21:42:44

@Mumofboys17 yes I use it. It's good for predicting ovulation and which few days are likely to be key. Lol I still go ahead and test early though.

Mumofboys17 Wed 20-Nov-19 08:24:57

@JK201 haha oh dear 😂 hoping I can resist the urge this month!
How are you doing? AF has finally buggered off for me it seems so we’re back on it this month! 😬🤞🏻

JK201 Tue 26-Nov-19 07:25:12

@Mumofboys17 CD 13 so back in the game this week. An getting there nearly positive opk yesterday so will keep checking today. Not as much fun as peeing on a pregnancy test.

Mumofboys17 Tue 26-Nov-19 11:17:35

@JK201 Oooh exciting stuff!! Although I agree, not half as exciting as a BFP 🙄😂 I started doing OPK’s about 3 days ago but still negative for now. I’ve started using this app to take pics of them and track their progress, Ovia reckons I’ll be most ‘fertile’ first week of December so will see how that goes!
We’re also using the SMEP method this cycle 😬 DTD every other day since CD9 (should be CD8 normally but with my longer cycles I figured a day won’t matter) then every day for 3-4 days over the fertile window. Hopefully can keep it up (no pun intended) 😂😂 we’ll see!! 🤞🏻

JK201 Tue 26-Nov-19 13:33:46

Ooo that's a handy app @Mumofboys17 I just use pic art lol.

I've done another opk today, what do you think? Not sure if bottom one is rather/lighter or staying the same.

Annoyingly we 'forgot' to have sex last night (aka a stupid husband wife petty disagreement meaning neither of us fancied it) so I'll be super pissed if we missed our window.

Mumofboys17 Tue 26-Nov-19 14:01:00

That’s pretty dark!! Looking at that I’d say you should still be fine, surely?! Just deffo DTD tonight to be sure and maybe tomorrow if you can manage it!
Haha trust me, I know all too well what you mean 😬 TTC almost takes the fun out of things anyway so I find it doesn’t take much for one of us to throw a strop every now and then and be completely put off! X

VCP88 Tue 26-Nov-19 14:57:44

Good luck! Lots of jigging tonight with those opks!

JK201 Wed 27-Nov-19 11:40:51

Another daily opk update. Bottom one is from just now. I'm finding it hard to tell if it's + yet

I might tests again after lunch to see if it changes.

Mumofboys17 Wed 27-Nov-19 12:15:34

@JK201 that really looks positive to me!! If not then it’s VERY close! X

JK201 Wed 27-Nov-19 13:10:09

The difference a few hours make.

Aaaaaaaaa 🙌🏼

Text husband who is coming home from work early 😂😂🕺🏼💃🏽💦

Mumofboys17 Wed 27-Nov-19 21:04:21

@JK201 woohooooo!!!! 🙌🏻😂😂 so chuffed for you haha, and brownie points to your DH for being so punctual! X

JK201 Sat 30-Nov-19 17:18:05

How's @Mumofboys17 getting on with this cycle? Still OPK'ing it?

Ahhhhhhrrrrrr when can I start testing!

Mumofboys17 Sat 30-Nov-19 18:29:28

Ahhh Yes, very much so!! Still tracking them on my app.. the pics are pretty pants but I have a feeling they’re now getting lighter again, so not sure if I’ve ovulated already?
Had LOADS of egg white discharge (sorry tmi) early Thursday morning, panicked and jumped on DH to DTD before work 😂 but still had fairly negative OPK’s. Darkened yesterday, DTD again last night, and looking fairly similar again this morning but I’m sure they’re getting lighter. Will test again before bed time me thinks 🤔

Mumofboys17 Sat 30-Nov-19 18:29:55

And.. No testing yet!!! 😂😂 wait a bit longer!

JK201 Sat 30-Nov-19 20:04:16

@Mumofboys17 the 29th looked promising. What time of day are you testing or is it just as and when you can?

And what cycle day you one now?

In theory I could test from Thursday. It'll be 7dpo and 6 days before period. Might start on Wednesday 🙊

It'll be our last chance for a BFP before Christmas 🤞🏼

Mumofboys17 Sat 30-Nov-19 21:29:09

@JK201 CD17 today, I’ve mostly been testing in the evenings (6-7pm ish) simply because I actually have the time to test then 😂

Ovia app says my ‘fertile window’ isn’t for another 2 days and both apps say I should ovulate Wednesday/Thursday 🤷🏼‍♀️ I do normally get a proper dark OPK that’s a blatant positive but haven’t had that this month.. Suppose there’s still time for that to happen anyway but the ‘egg whites’ threw me off!

JK201 Tue 03-Dec-19 07:20:21

Why did I wake up and test today. Even by my standards it's waaaayyyy too early.

Mumofboys17 Tue 03-Dec-19 09:34:45

Oh you numpty @JK201 xx
Don’t worry, you’ve done it now so you can move past it! Try and keep busy, I quite like the countdown timer on the Ovia app as it brings be back to reality a bit every time I start reaching for the FRER’s 2dpo 🙈

I’ve had negative OPK’s since the weekend, so thinking I’ve ovulated about 4 days early this cycle 😳 just hope we’ve done enough now!

JK201 Tue 03-Dec-19 18:27:52

If only you could see what was really going on inside hey @Mumofboys17 and you knew for sure what day it all happened.

Obviously just got home from work and fished the test out the bin for another look 🙈 oh noooo I've become that mad crazy person.

Hubby working at home tomorrow so no testing again until Thursday. Which will then be 6/7 days before my period due so I'm into the possibility of seeing 2 lines territory then.
