I've been POAS everyday now since 5dp3dt on a FRER and EPT digital and both always showed a stark white background with 1 pink line or a "not pregnant". I'm currently 9dp3dt... and it's still BFN.
I know a lot of people say that they got a + beta after many - hpt's and I know some say it's still early... but I just am not feeling like I'm pregnant.

amysbabies- Keep up the PMA. I know this is so frustrating. I just went through it. Really the negative means that there isn't enough hcg in your urine to be detected as of yet. Realistically it could be too early still to detect. Thinking of you and sending PMA. xo

amysbabies - keep up the hope! It's not over till it's over. Your Beta will tell all and HPT's are kind of a blessing as you are more ready if it is negative or totally off the wall surprised if it comes back positive. I have recently posted on the NOV/DEC cycle buddies tread a timeline of what happens during the 2ww (development and implatation). You may want to refer to the chart. It says that day 8 is the first day hcg begins to secrete into the blood and day 11 is the first day it's detected. Also, there is a website called (I think betaboard) that gives you the high, low and mean beta for the day you may be pregnant. What I mean by that is, your # may be very different from other girls that get + before beta. There are extreme variances in betas. I have my prayers with you

Amybabies : HPT are all different, some don't detect hcg levels until your 50 or more, the most sensitive one I ever heard of was EPT, they can detect people who are only 6 at times, but then again the blood test is the most reliable out of all the test, please keep PMA, stress is the last thing your body doesn't need, albany07 and karenthescopio are right, keep PMA, it's not over until it's over. I know it's easier said than done but I believe I lost one of my babies d/t stress.
I will be thinking of you

I just watched, "I didn't know I was Pregnant" on TLC, like an hour ago. This girl had taken 8 HPT's all negative. She was at the hospital in labor and got a neg on a urine test. They finally got a positive with a blood test. SHE WAS IN LABOR and she got a neg. So they are no true answer to anything. I think you may be too early. I personaly don't care for HPT's. They are tempting and they can help you prepare, but they are not a sure thing either way.
