I am so, so determined to wait until my period is late this month. It was so upsetting and totally consumed me when I got negatives over and over and over last month. I WILL do better this month, I am promising that!

@IUrebekah3RT:  Guilty. AF was shorter than expected, three days but heavy. I mentioned it to Darling Husband and he said are you absolutely sure you’re not pregnant. I said oh yeah, I’m sure, I took a test after AF stopped. Then he wouldn’t stop laughing at me, said he was kidding and he couldn’t believe I tested. Well Humph…sometimes you hear about people who didn’t know they were pregnant because they had such a strong implantation bleed. I knew I was being crazy though.

I also may have used three opks today, two an hour apart because one of them looked funny. There was a stark white line where the test line should have been in the middle of the pinkish background as it developed. A after it finished developing it was the normal light pink but I just thought I would check in case it was defective.

@kate02121:  It is so upsetting!! The worst part is when you get the BFN on 10dpo and you are like “well, it’s early, there’s still hope” and keep thinking that way (and wasting tests) until AF arrives. Despite spotting and all the other usual PMS symptoms…. there’s always that strand of hope hanging around. So so frustrating.

I fed my POAS addiction in previous cycles by peeing on expired (over a year) Wondfos like crazy, pretty much anytime after O, figuring, “Well of course it’s a BFN because it’s expired.” I probably used up like 30 of them. That wacked out logic really worked in my crazy emotional state.

This cycle I got a BFP (woo!) on FRERs and I still felt the urge pee on whatever other sticks I had, so the expired Wondfos were calling my name. And holy cow, BFP on those suckers too.

@jny1179:  I totally agree. My cycle has been wacky the past couple of months so it’s going to be hard for me to figure out just WHEN my period is “late”…that may wreak havoc on my resolve to not test early!
