Well, I have been feeling sick, headaches, a little crampy, boobs hurting, and hungry! I also have to urinate more. But I am due for my af on August 4th. When do you think I should test?

I got my first BFP at 14 DPO with FMU and again the following day. I even did one 18 DPO at 9PM and got a BFP. I think if you're lucky, some women can test 10 DPO and get a positive but that doesn't work for everyone. Do you know when you ovulated?

Well, first I need to know what BFP means and DPO. I ovulated on CD 23.

BFP = Big fat positive
 


DPO is days past ovulation. I'd count 12 DPO and test then! And then I'd test again on 14 DPO

Hehe... BFP is Big Fat Positive (test result) and DPO is Days Past Ovulation. I know the acronyms confused me at first too! They have a sticky in this board with all the abbreviations and acronyms that will explain a lot.

I would maybe wait till the day of your period to test as you will most likely get a more accurate test result. If you can't wait, I heard the ladies buy dollar store HPTs and you could start testing 4 days before you expect AF.

Good luck to you! Sending baby dust your way.
