    I actually didn't test until 14 dpo because I was charting, and my temps kept going down, so I thought my cycle would be over any day! Plus I had pretty bad cramps so I even made sure to buy a new box of tampons. Then on 14 dpo my temp went up instead of down and I thought, hmm, maybe I will just try a test. I didn't even tell DH I was taking it. I was very shocked to see the digital readout say "pregnant!"

    If I were you I would wait until 13 or 14 dpo, if you can stand the wait! Good luck!

    I got a very strong positive in the middle of the afternoon at 11 dpo.� I don't think this is all that common though.� It also depends on how your body metabolizes stuff.� Some people have very high HcG levels and others not as much.

    At 12dpo I got what I thought was an evap on a $tree test when I held it in the window and tilted it a certain way.� That night I lay in bed just knowing I was pregnant, it was weird.� The next morning, 13dpo, my temp took a massive dive and I wanted to cry.� I tested anyway and got a clear + on both $tree and FRER.� My beta that afternoon was 51 miu.� Then of course I dug the $tree test out of the trash to get a picture of it, because I am obsessed like that.� Looking now at the picture I can clearly see a line, but that was after the stupid thing sat in the trash overnight!I never would have tested + at 10dpo, or even 11.�

    Lakewinnigirl, sorry about the dive, but you're not totally out until AF arrives. I�understand how you feel�- 6 months feels like a long time when it comes to ttc. I just started month 5 (AF arrived today) and it already feels like we should have gotten a BFP already. It's so hard to wait. Take time to be sad and you'll be ready to move ahead soon.

    Sorry to hear AF arrived for you guys :-(.� I know how it feels.� I am in the 2 week waiting period right now and this is my fourth month of trying.-->-->I went to the doctor last week to get tested for the Cystic Fibrosis Gene since the gene runs in my DH family they wanted to make sure I did not carry it.��� Anyway, while I was there, I had a pretty good conversation with the NP I saw.� She was really cool and told me she knows how frustrating this can be for women especially if you are young and healthy.�� The one thing she said to me was not to make it my job and just have fun with it, and you will have a better chance.�� I totally understood what she was coming from.� I don�t think I was getting stressed over the fact that it was not happening it was just very disappointing when it did not.� -->-->She also gave me the advice to take a month off if you are very overwhelmed and just have sex for fun like you used to.� No pressure.� Because� She said the percentage of couples that gets prego during that month is very high.� �I said to her, how the heck does it happen to people by mistake and I am trying so hard and it will not happen.� Her answer was because they don�t have the stress about getting pregnant and it just happens.-->-->I just thought I would shoot that advice over to you girls although I am sure you probably have been told the same things.� �Hang in there, Im trying!-->-->�

    quadgirl - your NP is right!� My parents tried for 3 years to conceive me.� As soon as they stopped and started to look into adoption they found out my mom was pregnant.� She swears that people try too hard these days.� �It took us 9 months to conceive our first child.� After about 6 months of trying I saw my PCP and explained to her that we had been trying with�no luck.� She ordered a thyorid test to appease me�I think.� Turns out I have Graves Disease (over active thyroid).� I was on my medicine for one month when we conceived.� Turns out that was the problem.� Second time around was less time but the thyorid was out of control for a while and as soon as it was under control we conceived again.
