  • yes, absolutely. With my daughter I tested at 12DPO, negative...14DPO, negative...then at 18DPO finally a positive. Good luck!
    ATM, my period should have started today and I usually have spotting for 2 days beforehand, and I have had nothing at all. I'll test in a couple days if AF doesn't show. :)

  • when you say 12DPO you mean like 12 days past your period?.. I have to say with my first I had NO spotting so you could be pregnant.

  • i actually didnt even take a test until i was almost 14 weeks pregnant because i was so irregular anyway i didnt think i could be...the line barely showed so i waited a week and took two more and they were positive..but all my negatives over the past 4 years were far as i know anyway i have read a lot of things from women who thought they were pregnant tested negative and ended up being pregnant but having a miscarriage soon afterward and only knew it because they were worried they hadnt started and went to the doctor..that could have happened to me before but i never went to the doctor because i was never regular to begin with

  • DPO is days past ovulation - I chart, so I know when I ovulate. I'm a little irregular, but the luteal phase (the time after ovulation) is always about the same, 10-11 days for me. It's the follicular phase (from day 1 of your period to when ovulation occurs) that varies - anywhere from 14days to 30. So right now I'm on Cycle Day 35, but since I ovulated on Cycle Day 23, I'm only 12 Days Past Ovulation - DPO.

  • I got a number of negatives before positive for both pregnancies. Although this time I wasn't as far along.
