I tested VERY positive the day of my missed period, so dark it was wider and darker than the control and showed up right away. Then, with my next I tested the day I missed my period and every friday til I finally got a *faint* nearly invisible had-to-turn-it-sidways-held-in-the-light positive. This time I am still testing neg, but I would bet money I am preggo. :goodvibes:

Good luck! I hope you get your BFP. I always have to test forever it seems and get that exact same positive you are talking about for awhile. Not until I'm 5-6 weeks pregnant do I get a dark positive.
Keep us updated!

I have never tested till I was sure I was late and never have had a problem with light positives. Plus it saves $ on all those tests :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: But if I was to be trying again I am not sure I could wait. Good thing DH has had a V lol

I didn't vote...because I've been pregnant 9 times!!! (3 miscarriages & this will be our 6th live baby)
pregnancies #1, 2, 3 & 4 were all well past my AF due date.
pregnancy #5 was the day AF was due
pregnancy #6 was super faint a few days after AF was due
pregnancy #7 was totally negative starting before AF was due until over a week later & even a blood test had said negative even though I knew I was pregnant
pregnancy #8 was a few days after AF was due (but I hadn't thought to test before that)
pregnancy #9 (this one!) I conceived 4 weeks after losing the last baby & tested positive 14 days after BD (so around when AF would have been due)

I said the day of, but it was really a couple of days after. I had implantation bleeding the day of, so I thought maybe I wasn't pregnant. Of course after that was just spotting, I tested 2 days late and had a dark positive. No guessing there!

w/ our first I didn't test until about 2 weeks after my missed period got a dark positive in about 3 seconds and that was right before bed, then w/ dd 2 it was about a week after my missed period and got a dark positive very fast.

With my first pregnancy (twins) I didn't know for a while. I may have suspected but I didn't really THINK I was. I tested + when I went for a refill on my BC pills! Ooops! With #3 I realized I was supposed to get AF soon and then all of a sudden all my syptoms started flashing through my head and I literally drove straight to the store! BFP... I was probably due for AF that day or the next. #4 I tested early, probably 3-4 days before AF was due since it was Father's Day and I suspected I was... got a BFP! #5 I was pretty sure I was preggo from the numerous symptoms I had, even like 3 days after I should have O'd. Freaky! I tested at about 8-9dpo and got a faint line. 3 days later I took a digital test and got "Pregnant" on the results! Still before AF was due.

I already "knew" I was pregnant, so it was just a formality. :giggle: But, I still tested twice just to be sure!
06-12-2006, 11:14 AM
I was 6 weeks with my dd when I finally got a positive and this time I am not sure but I know I have to be far after ovulating. So I picked the week or more.

With my first pregnancy I didn't get a BFP until I was 8 weeks. That wait was NO fun. I never tested with my 2nd DS. With my 3rd DS I tested at 6 weeks. This time I was 12 DPO and got a BFP. It was the earliest I have ever found out.
06-14-2006, 02:10 PM
I am a TOTAL POAS addict, LOL. I tested probably 4 or so days before AF was due with my son - and that was my BFP. This time I tested for a few days, but finally got my BFP around 12 dpo - so before AF was due (but my cycles were really long so AF wouldn't have been due for another 20 or 30 days). Good thing I didn't wait for AF on that one, LOL that would have been awhile!

Well, funny story really. The week I found out I was sick as a dog and the thought of pregnancy never even crossed my mind. I just thought I caught something.
I tested at 1 day late and got the most positive test you'd ever seen in your life. And, I was seriously SHOCKED! I was really not expecting it. Usually when I POAS it's negative which is what I was kinda even hoping for. We were going to Vegas the very next week and it was my first time so I really wanted to let lose. Instead I spent half the time in the bathroom puking haha

I think it was usually pretty close to AF start time but I was so anxious I took over 4 tests with each one before I got that BFP. I found out with all of mine around 4-5weeks along

#1 I'm sure I was pg, but never tested pos. But I just *KNOW* I m/c.
#2 - about 7-10 days late..I never kept track of AF, I always just assumed it was on time. I was having these strange pains and described it to a friend and she asked if I could be pg... I was like,pfft..no way. Got a calendar out and figured out I was pretty late..took a test and voila. COMPLETELY shocked. I had a missed miscarriage at 11 wks.
#3 - 3-5 days pre-AF..tested approx 11 times, lol. After the m/c's, I wanted to be pg every mo (although we were not trying & were actually using contraceptives). So if I thought it was a possibilty or if i had any 'symptoms' I started testing 5-7 days before expected af. lol...birthed my first baby Jan 27, 2004
#4 - 7 days pre-AF...3 days after O, i *KNEW* I was pg...when I tested, it was pos. U/S showed twins. I miscarried on June 29, 2004 and (maybe TMI) "birthed" my 2nd and 3rd babies - I say that as it occurred naturally andI was 9-11 wks along so it didn't just seem like a heavy period. They were both bigger than golf balls. It makes me cry just thinking about it again :(
#5 - 2 days pre-AF.. Once again I *knew* I was pg because of my crazy emotions and I craved lobster something fierce and I HATE seafood. Got a test that day on the way home from work and sure enough. I tested 12 times from that day to like...7 wks...lol.. I birthed my 4th baby - 2nd living child on Aug 22, 2005.

With my first pg, according to my chart, I was only 10dpo and got a medium dark line (that came right up) with FRER. With my 2nd pg I got a faint pos. (after the time limit) with an internet strip test at 10 and 11 dpo but by 12 dpo I got a very dark second line. I usually start AF by 13 dpo.

With our 1st I had been to the Navy clinic 4 or so times and they kept telling me negative - I had come off of b/c pills and they said if I didn't start by the next week to come in and they were going to give me a shot of depo to induce a period. I left straight from the Navy clinic after having a negative test and went straight to wal-mart all of 10 minutes away and bought a test and went in the wal-mart bathroom and took it and it was BRIGHT positive! I was probably about 3 or so weeks after af would have been due.
with # 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 they were all lighter tests right at when AF was due or a day or two later. they were not super hard to see but they were definitely faint positives.
With this pregnancy I started testing at 8dpo and got my positive at 9 dpo but it was super super super faint! I finally got a dark positive (still not as dark as the control line) but not hard to see :laugh: at 16 dpo. I tested again 2 days ago and got a truly dark positive (where the line was as dark as the control line) and I was 6 weeks 2 days.
