I plan on taking my first on 10DPO! From what I've read up on, BFPs can show then. GL!

Hahaha oh lady, for those of us POAS we can start whenever! I have started testing as early as 5 dpo! This month I will not be doing that though, I learned my lesson!

I have heard that on average it is between 9 and 12 DPO.

Good luck and hopefully you get your BFP!!

I tend to start at 11 or 12 DPO - you're less likely to get false negatives. CountdowntoPregnancy.com has a whole set of statistics about when you are likely to get a negative or a positive. That's how i decided.

Thanks, ladies!

The negative yesterday was really, really hard.

DH and I decided to take one more this morning and then let it be until Thursday. (AF should show up on Wednesday.) Another BFN, but I handled it pretty well today.

I think it might be time to start a journal, though... get some of my feelings out in full thoughts.

I love my journal. It's a place I can write where I don't feel judged for anything I say

So sorry about the BFN - those are hard to see.

I test 11 or 12 DPO - I always said I would wait until AF showed but I was bad at that

I just started a journal. I do recommend it. When will you test again? Or will you just wait for AF?

I don't think I'll test again -- pretty sure AF will show up by Wednesday. I'm already cramping, so I wouldn't be surprised to see her tomorrow.

From now on, I'm going to try REALLY HARD to not test before 11 DPO... But we'll see how that works out.
