gah! what does a girl have to do to get a BFP!

I know I am pregnant. I have literally had every possible symptom and have had MS for 4 days now. I am still bf'ing and of PP AF yet so I don't know when I ovulated. It was probably around the 5th/6th b/c I stopped my b/c around then for a break and there were probably some sperm laying in wait ready to pounce . I keep getting negative tests!! what is the average DPO tests have to be taken to get a positive. I always bee threads about early BFP's but what is just the norm? (just b/c this is all I can think about and what better than to obsess on DS over it?).

If you ovulated/implanted late, it could take longer to get a bfp. But, if you are having pretty there symptoms, then I woyld think you would have enough hormone in you to detect a bfp. I would get a blood test. That would for sure be positive by now. Also, what tests are you using? It might not be sensitive. Best of luck

I am in the same boat as you, except I haven't had any symptoms which leads me to believe I am not pregnant. I have 15 mo son, am bf'ing 2x daily and have had no pp AF yet but I did have my first very clear +ve OPK test last Tuesday, fertile CM on Wed. and Thurs. and pain in sides on Wed.. The only possible symptoms I have are dull pains in sides on and off. I would love to conceive but I will probably need a few cycles first I'm thinking.

I'm using the HCG one step cheapies from amazon. I'm thinking they might just take a while. I'm gonna get a couple more sensitive ones before I get a blood test.

If you are having symptoms caused by pregnancy, you would have a positive test. I had symptoms like that on and off the whole 13 months I waited for ppaf, I would be in the same boat as you, like "yep, know I'm preggo" but I never was. I am going to be really sad if I have to deal with m/s like feelings periodically for the rest of my life.

Should be able to pick up a BFP by 9 to 10 DPO. At two weeks out, even a sensitive test should be picking it up by now. I'd get a digital.

I'll have to do that. The absolute latest I could have ovulated and gotten pregnant would be the 8th or 9th but that's pretty unlikely. today I'm not feeling sick but we had a bit of a crisis this morning that caused a bit of an adrenalin rush so that might have had something to do with it. I'm going to wait a couple days and try not to worry about it.= and see how I'm feeling.

So, it's been a couple days... Do you have a test to take? I've been keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I took a digital today...BFN. I'm just going to take it at face value and have a glass of wine . The symptoms are still around but I'm thinking it has something to do with coming off birth control.
