Hey ladies, we have all met recently on the forums and are rather new to forums or TTC. Thought it would be easier to have one large group discussion where we can keep up with each other and support one another.
Feel free to invite others also! Not excluding here... we could also make a FB group if that is easier or more appealing to anyone! Doesn't matter to me!
I found this post and found it super informative. I love how she broke this down for all of you (us!!!) that AREN'T getting BFP at 10 dpo.
hCG doubles every 48 hours. You can have a level of 1 - 5 in a non pregnant state.
Implantation could belater than you think.
If a woman implants at 8dpo, with a 'non pregnant' hCG level of 1 [Which is totally normal] it would rise as follows
8dpo - 1miu hcg
10dpo - 2miu
12dpo - 4miu
14dpo [Day AF is typically due] - 8miu
16dpo - 16miu
So this lady wouldn't finnd out until 15dpo on a very senstive 10miu pregnancy test, superdrug own or possibly asda own. Obviously if she implants LATER than 8dpo [which is normal] she will find out even later.
Now, Take a lady who implants at 8dpo, But has a'Non pregnant' hCG level of 5. Hers looks like this;
8dpo - 5miu
10dpo- 10miu - Could find out here on superdrug own, internet cheapie
12dpo - 20miu - Could find out here with freedom cheapie strip/most poundland tests and asda own]
14dpo - 40miu [day period is typically due] Most tests would pick it up here
So, This lady, Even though implantation is on the same say for both ladies, Can find out MUCH sooner. Now, If this lady were to implant at 6dpo she could potentially find out at just 8dpo. But if the first lady were to implant at 12dpo, She would find out even later, Even if they have the same cycle and OV days!
I agree with jumping the gun... I'm starting to feel dumb for testing from O day an gettin my hopes up each morning now that its getting real.... It was easier to see a negative in DPo1!! Agh but I started so I'm gunna finish it! Dad 1-7 were all BfNs and/or Evaps. We shall see in the morning lol
