Just wondering how early do you all test? If I indeed O on day 13 (like my OPK indicated) than I am 7dpo....def too early, but I am curious what is the earliest you can get a positive on a pg test? What day do you begin POAS?

7DPO is way too early!!!! I'm an impatient person to with this TTC - I'm not usually but with TTC I am. For me, my LP was pretty consistently 11 days so I "try" not to test until 11DPO. But I know several women have gotten BFP on 10DPO.

Hang in there a few more days!!!!

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

Okay, I guess I am being way too impatient I guess I'll have to tough it out for another several days! I did go out and get a BBT today...anxious to start charting although I know it won't mean much until next cycle. Thanks for the input!

Yes, it's probably to early, we all feel impatient when we get to the countdown to AF. Try to hang in there a few more days! Good luck when you do test.
Hi, my name is Mary and my DH is Andy and we are a Christian family of 9 living on a farm. We enjoy growing and raising our own food. We have a huge garden in the summer for vegetables and raise our own animals for meat. We homeschool our children, use cloth diapers, and eat as healthy as possible. God has planned the births of our children and we love having a big family!

God has blessed us with:
Daisy (9), Veronica (7), Charlie (4), Sally (3), Mark (2), Travis (15 months), Nathan (5 months)

Ok...put your hands up, and slowly step away from that test ...(just kidding). We all are impatient in the days before AF is due, but let me convince you:

If you are PG (I hope you are), there is a big chance that you'll still get a BFN now and feel upset, and get your BFP a few days later, so why subject yourself to the heartache and uncertainty?

If you are not, you will feel the misery when AF shows, so why rush and feel it multiple times with each BFN?

That's how I try to convince myself not to test early. It doesn't always work though.

7dpo is way too early!! I have tested as early as 8dpo, but only because it was a "special day" of some sort, even tho I knew it'd be too early. Sometimes, I'll test early because I know I'll get a BFN, and I can tell myself it's early and any future BFN's aren't as hard to take. But, I'm figuring out that I'm a POASaholic. "Try" and not test before 11dpo, if you can help it. Good Luck!!! I hope it's a BFP we hear about from you in a few days!!
