7dp5dt - BFN 😭😭😭

I couldn’t wait any longer and took an early response hpt- BFN! I’ve had waves of feeling really positive and other feeling completely drained from crying so much I felt like I needed confirmation of what I was feeling already, thought it would soften the blow for what to expect next week but it hasn’t really.

I’m not going to test again until my actual test day, will only torture me even more not seeing the second line day after day, just need to get through this week and then have a couple of days off work for next week, hoping the dreaded period will take its time to arrive so I can get back to the gym and back to my routine, get a massage and try to build myself up before I even think about trying this again.

Wish everyone the best of luck in their 2WW, upcoming treatment and your TTC journey, mine is on hold for a while xxx

It could be a false BFN as you’ve tested early, I understand how your feeling but try to keep positive until OTD and like you’ve said don’t test again until then x

Thanks 😊 I’m hoping that after seeing the first test it stops me stressing so much this week and just keep myself busy will at least make me feel less stressed and not overthink everything so much i can focus on other things 😏 have no idea if I’ll get my period as what I’ve read says that lutigest pessaries don’t actually stop your period from happening and I haven’t had any bleeding yet so whether that’s a good sign or not I’ve no idea 🙈 looking forward to taking my niece out later today am desperate to see her we haven’t seen our nieces and nephew since new year as we wanted to focus on us and getting through the treatment x

Yeah the pessaries have never stopped my period but it’s a good sign you haven’t had any bleeding. Like i said it’s really early so keep that bit of positivity as others have said cramping doesn’t always been AF is on her way.

Ah have a lovely day with your niece she’ll keep you busy I’m sure, I’ve got my niece today to x

It's still early days. I think I'm about the same way through the 2ww as you and I feel like I'm going insane but my husband is telling me to wait until test day. I would wait a few more days before you completely right it off, it might just be too early to detect. Hope you are okay, look after yourself xx

🙏🏻 that I might be, my husband told me not to test but I couldn’t sleep thinking about it and needed to know, a lot of stuff I’ve read the last couple of days there might not be enough HCG until 8-9dp5dt but saw so many people get their bfp as early as 5dp5dt I thought I’d waited long enough 🙈 you’re right it might be too early, I just don’t want to get my hopes up too much am feeling a bit defeated and don’t want to build my hopes up again to have them come crashing down 😩 xx

Some people who get positives really early are pregnant with twins so they have really high hcg. They aren’t the norm xx

I've just looked it up and implantation can happen anywhere between day 6 and 12 post ovulation/EC so your little embryo has from 1dp5dt to 7dp5dt to implant and it won't show up immediately on a test even if it does implant today or even in the last few days. Enjoy today and we will try to keep positive vibes xx

Thanks S-Joy I’m feeling a bit more hopeful, I was almost feeling normal this morning, spent some time doing some mindfulness and relaxation and I got ready and the cramps disappeared, no bloating or headaches, I almost wanted them back so I know my body is doing something, such a rollercoaster but sure enough theyve started up again, trying not to read into it too much and just hopeful that my little embryo is still there and trying to grow xx

I agree with the others far too early to do a test. I got a positive test 17 days post ovulation ( sadly it resulted in a miscarriage). They give you a test day for a reason- if it would show up earlier for everyone they’d say test sooner. Implantation may not have occurred yet- you won’t get a positive a few days after implantation. You are definitely still in the game! Forget this test and don’t test till test day!!! xoxo

It’s too early hunni, there are people on here who have had negatives the day before test day and then positives otd. Keep soldiering on, the 2ww is the hardest. Big hugs xx

Sooooooooooooo early! Don’t write this off yet! Tell that embryo to get sticking; I’m not even sure implantation will have happened yet. Be positive; that embryo needs you to be! x

Thanks everyone, will keep on waiting and won’t test again until OTD, after the last few days I was so sure my period was going I start because the cramps were getting more intense and I had that full like I was about to start bleed feeling and bloated, have been so emotional was so sure this hasn’t worked, I just needed to prepare myself for a definite BFN, I’m not bleeding yet so will take that as a good sign and have come up with a plan for this week so I am distracted and not sitting around thinking and symptom spotting xxx

I felt my period was coming before my positive test - doesn’t mean it is.

All the best for OTD hope it’s a BFP xoxo

This is why it’s better not to test early, why we’re given an otd. It’s still possible for you to get your bfp. I’ve read women on here test a day earlier and get a bfn only to test the next day and get a bfp. Try and keep some hope, I know how hard it is. Good luck for otd, no more testing early 😉 xx

Far too early lovely, it’s so bloody hard, and your dreams are just a wee away as it were! BUT they give you a test day for a reason, I’m being completely hypercritical here, but right now your hcg levels won’t be high enough. you’re not out until the fat lady rears her ugly head! Keeping my fingers crossed for you xxx

Thanks everyone 😊 I’ve made it another day without any bleeding so I’m hoping tomorrow will be the same, I’ll at least be at work and have no time to think about anything other than work and have a list of things to do at home during the week 😁

I had no crampy feelings until later in the day, was out with our niece and nephew and was sure my period was about to start but it hasn’t, so I’ve had another day of the usual cramps and twinges, feeling like I’m about to come on but nothing, not sure if it’s my hormones or the lack of sleep has caught up with me but have been asleep on the couch for most of the afternoon, not long woken up so am hoping that my body and mind got the rest it needed to get me through this week xxx
