Ok first thing first, if I wanted to test early since I am impatient. what dpo is fairly safe to start testing on?


AND if a BFP I want to surprise Eddy on my anniversary.

I need ideas for a cool way to surprise him. I get paid thursday and want to buy anything I need then and have it on hand.

Typically 12 DPO is a good day to test if you are testing before AF. I got my BFP on 11 DPO, but honestly with my progesterone levels what they were I was just so excited I didn't really think about what day it was.

As far as surprising ideas, the only one I heard that was good was to actually put a bun of some sort in your oven next to the positive test and when he gets home tell him you have something special for him in the oven. I can't remember who said they were going to do that, it was months ago. I knew I would be testing with DH, so I really didn't spend any time coming up with cool ways to surprise him.

I also think 11 or 12 dpo would be a good time to start, and as far as the surprise I would just buy him something cute that says #1 Dad or Daddy on it and give it to him along with the test, although Carmela's idea is much more creative.

I think 12DPO would be good, but I know I wouldn't be able to wait! As far as ideas, I don't really have any great ideas yet. The only thing I have planned so far is that I already bought DF a bib that says "I love daddy" on it, and I bought this the first month we started ttc. I don't really know how I will present it to him, but I am going to think of something good hopefully! Good luck to you!

Between 12-14dpo is good time.

I would buy a shirt that says I'm going to be a brother and use it on your son.
