BFP didn't appear until 3 days AFTER missed period!

Postby Frankie84 » Wed Nov 16, 2011 8:18 am

That's right, ladies. There is hope! We have been trying for baby #2 for 6 months. I was sure I was out this month as my period was due to start on Friday. But AF was a no so, so of course I tested and tested and tested. On Friday, Saturday AND Sunday and got several BFN. By Monday I was really depressed just wanting to get my period over with so we could start trying again this month. I had one test left and took it just out of curiosity. And low and behold if was positive. Not super dark, but not faint either. A clear positive. I have NO IDEA how this happened. So, I called my doc the next day to schedule my first prenatal first. She explained that it no all that uncommon for it to take 3-5 days after a missed period for your HCG levels to raise high enough for even the sensitive tests to pick up. Apparently this depends on how long it to the egg to travel, where it implanted, etc. I had never heard this before, but it happened to me! So, if yuou miss your period and still get BFN, keep testing, your BFP could be right around the corner. *BABY DUST TO ALL*

Just out of curiosity how did you know that you were past your period? Were you charting your BBT?
