    Hi everyone.

    I was just wondering how many days before your missed period people had a BFP?

    I know you aren't meant to test until the day af is due or the day after, but tbh the waiting is killing me. I'm due my af next saturday or sunday 01/02 or october. Ive been having symptoms that I'd assume was early preg, but I'm not sure if my mind is just living in hope.

    But if any of you lovely ladies have done tests before af due how many days before?


    Thank you.

    P/S you think second time around i'd be more calm :wall2:

    Thank you! I have a few cheap strip tests and one FRER, that I am holding on to it until I get even a hint of a line on a cheaper test. My initial idea was to do a test on Tuesday 4 days before af, so FX.

    Thanks again :D

    Earliest I've got a positive test is 9 days after ovulation. That's around 2-3 days before my AF is due as I can have a short luteal phase.

    Good luck!!

    I got the faintest positive 9 days before period was due!! I don't know if I ovulate earlier or what I couldn't believe it.

    I ovulated CD18 and got a clear positive 15 dpo.

    I got negative 12 dpo and then the faintest line 13 dpo (3 days before af was due), so faint that I thought the light was playing tricks on me. I then tested again the next day and it was the same. It really seemed so faint that I wasn't sure it was there. Both were with internet strips. I then bought a CBE to test the day af was due (15 dpo) and it was a clear +.

    Thank you ladies. I guess everyone's different. Im thinking I might have OV'd later than I expected. Haven't had any implantation bleeding or anything. Just loads of dull aches and sore boobs. Not to mention the past few nights I have been waking up at around 4am, for no reason what so ever, and I love my sleep so it's so weird for me.

    Guess I've just got to wait it out, one more week. Trying to be strong and not pee on every stick/strip I have in the house lol

    It's so hard to resist though. Ive been telling myself its too early, but now im thinking maybe I'm just not preg this month.

    My poor man is taking the worst of it though lol. He just came over seen the forums opened and walked off :')

    Hi I am in the same position I am due on my period on Sunday and I am desperate to know if I am pregnant with baby no 4!! I have been having all the pregnancy symptoms but am not sure if it's just me being hopeful. Did a test today and it was negative could it have just been too early?

    I think it's maybe too early, I did one yesterday and today both bfn. Ive had a dull ache and sore boobs etc. Spoke to my sister in law who was a midwife and she was worried I might just be convincing myself of the symptoms too. So trying to take my mind off it. Not working though :lol:

    When are you going to do another test? I was going to try and hold off until Tuesday before trying another one making it 4/5 days before af. I have GP appointment on thursday, so will probably do another one on thursday morning too if another bfn. Going insane!!! :wall:

    I got my bfp at 7dpo. But that's really early compared to most. I think I had high hcg levels.
    Usually 4 days before AF is around the time people start to test. Some still don't get a bfp until after a missed period. Good luck xx
