Early bfp with one pregnancy but not the next?

We got a very early bfp with our first child (9 dpo, I was charting). We are now trying for our second but not tracking anything. I think I am 9 (or maybe even 10) dpo & I got a bfn today. I am fairly sure this isn't our month given I don't "feel" pregnant (which I did last time).

I'm just wondering if anyone got an early bfp with one pregnancy but later bfp's with other pregnancies? In my head I've decided we are probably out this month but still holding a little hope lol

DS I had a bfn at 15dpo! Then bfp a week later when I tested again. With dd I had a bfp at 9dpo. I suspect every pregnancy may really be different. Good luck OP original.gif

Wow. Ok, so maybe there is hope! This month would be great timing wise but I'll be ok if it's not. Now to stop myself testing every day lol.

I was just searching for an answer on this. My period is due today but hasn't arrived but got a BFN on a first response test this morning. I think I am about 12 dpo but I had positives with my previous babies at 9/10dpo.

When you get your BFP depends on when the embryo implants which won't be the same for every pregnancy.

HCG levels can also vary greatly for different pregnancies. With my first pregnancy, my levels were towards the lower ends of the normal range and so my doctor kept checking them every 48 hours for a few days. Everything was fine.
My second pregnancy, my levels were so high the dr said he thought we were having twins! We had just the one very healthy little girl.

Maybe it had something to do with it - my first pregnancy was a boy, my second was a girl.
