when do you test

So when does everyone start testing and with what brand of tests? I am trying to talk myself into waiting 10dpo and just using a frer but i get itchy around 8dpo.

Re: when do you test

I try to wait until I think I'm at least 12 dpo, and I've used $tree and frers, depending on how i felt and if we were trying or not. But now I'm getting some IC's, but I'm still planning on waiting till 12 dpo.

Re: when do you test

Depends on how the chart looks. If I have a noticeable implantation marker, I'll test 2-3 days after that. Could be anywhere from 9 to 11 dpo, equates equates equates!!!!

I will forever swear by them. Any test that picks up at a level of 11 is worth the $3

Lori-oooh now i want some equates...but i have 25 IC, 2 cbe digi, 7 frer, and like 15$ tree...i really just can't justify buying anymore...lol.

oh and to add i have a blood test 11dpo as part of my year long partial molar monitoring...so i could wait for that, but i know it won't happen.

Re: when do you test

I got a BFP on a IC with my daughter at 9DPO. The same day, I tested with a $ store (negative) and a FRER (positive).

I have a whole stack of ICs and one FRER this time around, and I'm going to try to hold out until 10 or 11DPO. We'll see!

Re: when do you test

I started at 6dpo b/c I was queezy and dizzy and thought, I am pregnant?? I got like an invisible line no color for 6dpo and 7dpo and real color lines and a 'pregnant' '+' on the digi's at 8dpo.

I hope you hold out longer than I did. In 1 week I took over 20 tests. I guess I wanted to make sure it wasn't a chemical again.

I really hope this is your month Rach!!!!

Re: when do you test

I usually start 8 dpo with IC's. I got my BFP at 9dpo with an IC. I took a total of 15 tests with this one lol. 10 IC's, 1 answers, 1 Equate and 2 CB Digi's only got Neg on the 8dpo IC. It took 14 BFP's for me to believe it

I usually test sometime around 12-14dpo. I try to make it get the best reading it can and the strongest. Sometimes i can't wait that long though. It just depends.
