blood test accuracy at 8 dpo

My husband and I have been TTC for six months. Two days ago, at 8dpo, I had my thyroid checked and also asked him for a quantitative blood test just in case I had gotten pregnant this month. The test came back negative. I was so hopeful about this month because I started taking Robitussin. I was wondering if any of you guys had gotten a negative blood test (could 8 dpo be too soon? It was the early morning on my eighth day...) and then gotten a positive hpt. I'm hesitant to take one until tomorrow (at 11 dpo) since I know at eight days there was no HCG there. Thanks!

Re: blood test accuracy at 8 dpo

It takes 10-14 days for the egg to implant in your uterus and for your body to start producing the HCG hormone that the pregnancy tests detect. It was probably too soon.
