    I'm about 8 dpo now, and scared to test too early. How early did any of you get your bfp??? This next week of waiting is awful!!

    I would wait til at least 11 dpo. I have tested either day of af due date or day before with my pregnancies. The longer you wait the more accurate the results will be. I know how hellish the wait is though x

    I agree with Lisey, all the medical info suggests that a urine home pregnancy test won't work until between 11-19 DPO so the longer you can leave it the more reliable your result. I'm trying to wait 14 DPO so I can be really sure. Worth the wait in the long run :) x

    I'm planning on testing on Sat which will be 11dpo.
    Feeling nervous as its early but have quite a lot of symptoms this month.

    I think 10dpo onwards is realistic for early testing any earlier and it's just a waste of money. Good luck x

    I've decided to give it until after the weekend... Had some sharp cramps today. A bit like ovulation or period cramps. Guess there are different pains I could expect.... So nervous now.
