BFN, then BFP?


Im from the TTC board but wanted to ask a question? I hope you all dont mind and that I am not bothering you all. I wanted to know did anyone test before AF was due, like a day before and get a BFN, then took a test a few days after AF was late only to get a BFP? Thats the situation that I am in. Thanks in advance for your responses!

It's perfectly possible. Especially if you didn't use one of the first response pee sticks.

False negatives are far more common than false positives. Did you actually get a BFP today? If so - huge congrats!! If you've not pee'd on a stick yet then best of luck!!

Yes I did use a FRER on the day before AF was due. I have not tested since. I am trying to hold out for the weekend. Thanks for responding.

With my first, I didn't test positive until AF was over a week late, and all before were bfn. So definitely possible.

Isn't that pretty much how it goes for everyone? You're always going to get a BFN before a BFP if you test early.

Not always. I hear of some women getting BFP's as early as 8dpo? So hence the question of asking about a " BFN, a day Before AF is due". Thanks so much for your lovely responses ladies and congrats to you all!!!

@Moorebetter: you are awesome!!! thanks for the positivity!!!

Hey, I tested 5 days before my period was due and again the day before with a hpt which claimed to give an acurate positive result up to 6 days before af was due but I only had negatives, I tested on the day af was due and then I got my positive.

Wishing you all the best

If you've had a positive then you are almost certainly pregnant. False positives are so rare GP's don't even bother testing you if you have had a positive test at home.

I didn't test positive until a day after my period was due and I am expecting twins, so should have tested positive early in theory.

Congratulations!

I have a friend who is due in 9 weeks and she said she kept getting a negative pregnancy test all the way up to 4 days past her period. Soooo You could have ovulated late? Every day or two your HCG level doubles. So I say test every two days.

GOOD LUCK!!
