@PeachBee:  Hmmm so, your spotting started at 10DPO? Maybe it was implantation? It can occur anywhere from 5-12 DPO? Hoping you get answers soon either way.

You guys…I was at my local Walmart today and just “happened” to mosey around into the pregnancy test aisle..and of course picked up a pack of FRER (cheap at my Walmart) and some digital tests as well haha.

And I was paying for them in the pharmacy section, and obviously the pharmacy tech messed up something with the coupon on the FRER pack and needed to call over like 20 managers to fix it. And while we were waiting/joking about how this always happens when you buy something awkward, he mentioned to me that Walmart sells $0.88 pregnancy tests…did anyone know this?!? I know you can get a ton via internet cheaper than that, but thought I’d pass this along in case it helps anyone with POAS urges to save money.

@kate02121:  Yes, I have seen single pregnancy tests, not FRER in the clearance section for $0.88 near the pharmacy. I have bought a few from there. 

Oops, I really meant to say baby dust to all! I can’t wait until I put my name on one of these boards…we’re not there yet!

@candy11:  Yes, sorry if that wasn’t clear. These are definitely not $0.88 FRER, but it appears to be similar in brand/quality to those you’d find at the Dollar Stores.

@Mrs.Elivs:  Thanks for the positive thoughts 🙂 I am not very hopeful though … I don’t generally hear about people having 4 days of implantation spotting … ? I just hope that I get a normal AF or a BFP soon! This uncertainty is killing me!

Ladies! I think I have lost my touch tince TTC! I’ve just been stalking some possible BFP threads (don’t judge, I needed a pick me-up! lol) but on both, I COULDN’T SEE ANYTHING!!! When I used to look at tests on the bee, prior to TTC, I could always see a line, even if noone else could! What’s happening to me? lol. At least I hopefully wont see any crazy lines on my own if I’ve apparently lost my touch. hehe. I’m a bit sad, I used to like seeing everyone elses BFPs, it sort of kept me going. There are lots of little things this month (like, “signs”) that kind of make me think this could be our month. I mentioned it before, but I’m just really excited for this month, which is unusual because normally I would experience anxiety, not excitement…I don’t know…and now I can’t see other people’s BFPs when I have always been able to before. I’m probably just going crazy, but I like to believe in these little “signs” haha.

I tested yesterday afternoon and got a BFN (def not a surprise I started cramping yesterday *sadface), but I’ll retest in the am just in case. I know overheating can cause birth defects so I just want to cover my bases before the half.  I’m really not feeling that this is my month. It got so screwed up because of vacation!  Either way we leave for our anniversary trip today so I’m determined to keep a smile on my face!  I hope there are tons of BFPs this weekend!

OK into my first TWW I go. I really want to avoid testing early, because I think I would be let down by multiple BFNs, and I’d rather not know about a chemical. I also want to limit the amount of squinting and retesting I have to do. But I also know how impatient I can be, so we will see. Any advice about how to get through the tww? I’m feeling calm this morning, 1DPO. It probably won’t last!

I also can’t stop myself from daydreaming about a Christmas pregnancy announcement with my family.  Must stop!

@ajillity81:  Rolldown are those who move to test later in the month (if they got a BFN on their original date or for some other reason). Rollovers are those who move to test into the next month (usually bc of BFN and no time to fit a second TWW/test time into the same month)

@princessbelle:  Grrr same. The control line is so beautiful, but other half of the test is SO. BLANK. I have kind-of cramps but they don’t feel exactly like my usual AF cramps (or at least I’m telling myself that) so it could be food related. Still on AF watch. Every time I pee and wipe I pray that there’s no blood. This is so sad and pathetic of me! 

@cant.wait.to.be.mrs.d:  I’m sorry to hear that. 

@PatientBee:  O god, the TWW is the worst. Tips are just to acknowledge that there is literally nothing you can do for at least the first 7-8DPO, so put them totally out of your mind. Then when it gets closer to possible test days, no tips from me!! Just one day at a time. I love that your name is PatientBee, but then you say how impatient you’re going to be haha (aren’t we all?). Good luck! Same on the Christmas announcement. I feel like I’m out this month 10/11DPO and BFNs, but I still have one more month TTC before a Christmas announcement to family is out of the question!

I broke down and tested yesterday and of course it was negative.

I tested again this morning because, well, why not pee on all the sticks, right?

I threw the wrapper away as I waited for my test from this morning and I saw yesterday’s test in the trash… and staring back at me WAS A LINE! 

I know it was an evap line, but OMG IT GAVE ME A HEART ATTACK!

This is one of the many reasons I HATE HATE HATE blue dye tests.  HATE.

Well BFN this morning, but AF could happen anywhere between yesterday and next Monday. I haven’t really been symptom spotting, but I do have some strangeness going on…

Sore BB’s seem to have diminished, and my usual 2 pound PMS weight gain has gone away (that usually happens well after AF). It’s almost like my period came and went without me knowing it! I felt weird stretchy cramps on and off all day Wednesday, but those also went away yesterday. In their place, a mild upset stomach that has continued into today. Basically, I feel weird, nothing makes sense, and I don’t really know what to think. Like many of you can relate, if I’m not KU, I’d really just like AF to start so I can move on to the next cycle.
