I wrote a thread a few days ago about a possible shortened lp. Well, I’m 3 days late now and had an hour of spotting today after a practice bd (hehe). I took a test this morning (9 dpo), but bfn. I’m going to hold off testing, but am so excited! Any good tips for the few day wait?

@takemyhand: I wish I did! I just try to read more, catch up on the dvr, study for a class I’m taking, go on dates with Darling Husband, etc. I tend to try to keep up and cheer the other girls on the poas boards to avoid thinking of me as much, it doesn’t really distract me but is something fun to do 🙂 I also try to reverse symptom spot to explain every “symptom” away to avoid getting my expectations up.
How’s it going?

@H2MrsDj: I’m DYYIIINNG from anticipation!
Today is 10 DPO, but I have a shortened luteal phase (all of this based on my guessed ovulation from CM and pain in my abdomen). Anyways, I normally get AF on Thursday (I have a VERY regular 28 day cycle). And I’m now at the end of my 4th day of being late. Today I had some intense cramps mid afternoon and I thought “here it comes!” but all I have seen is some tinted CM today (less than a pea sized drop with a brownish tint). Also, my dollar store test gave me a BFN. At this point, I want to either get a BFP or AF or SOMETHING! Every little pain makes me think too much.
I went through this in August, though, and AF came on day 4 or 5 I believe… so I’m not giving my hopes up. Just wanna know!

@takemyhand: Start a book or a TV series, that always helps me!!!! Or set a date thats after your POAS date to look forward to and really focus on that. Like, my POAS date is around Nov 10-13, but my birthday is shortly thereafter, so I’m focusing and counting down to that. Then when Nov 10 rolls around I will be like wow! That was quick!
Yay for longer LP!!!

The wait is the worst! I always try to find new things to do or something new to watch or read. I try to avoid all baby things if possible, lol!

Still bfn and no af, with today being the fifth day after af usually visits. Grrrr.

@takemyhand: If your period was due a few days ago an HPT would be positive by 5 days late I would think. It might just be a messed up cycle. 🙁 I got a BFP at 10 DPO but didn’t test at 8 or 9 DPO so I’m not sure when the earliest BFP could have been.
