Ok, I am 10 dpo today. Last time I was pregnant, I tested positive at 11 dpo, even though just barely.
Anyway, I ordered some supposedly super sensitive pg tests online that I expected to be here today.
Well, they didn't come
I do stil have one other test here. I had planned to use one of the cheap once tomorrow morning, with the thought that if it is negative I can do another one on monday morning. But since they didn't come, should I take the test tomorow morning, knowing it is still really early, and if it is - I have nothing for monday, or should I wait it out until Monday morning, which should give me a pretty reliable result either way. A negative then probably means I am not pg.
So, what would you do? I really don't want to spend any more money on more tests, especially since I have 6 coming in the mail.

I can say I would wait, but I would probably test tomorrow. This time I didn't get a line until I was a week late, so I wouldn't give up hope if it's negative.

I'd like to say that I'd take it easy and not stress over it but I would probably cave and take the test.

I figure it like this - the longer you wait, the more likely you'll get an accurate result, right? Wait a few more days. I can completely sympathize with how hard that is to do, though.

I am the same way. When we were trying, I wanted to test right away, even though I knew it was better to wait. I just didn't have the patience.

Well, I am very proud to say I did not test Sunday morning. I will wait until Monday. I might test Sunday night, though. When I plan to test in the morning, I get so excited, I don't sleep well the night before LOL.

I caved, I tested...
Of course, negative again. For some dumb reason, I still don't believe it.

My breasts are tender, even though not as painful anymore, but then again, I nursed two kids already.
I am starting to feel really weird in the morning until I get something to eat. I wouldn't say really nauseaus, but I feel that if I don't eat, I am going to throw up. Can just be low sugar, though, I have that every now and then.
Today I have been getting dizzy a few times, which is another thing I experienced before when pg early on.
The biggest thing for me, though, is that (ok, here it might get gross, but oh well.. ) I can normally smell AF in my cervical fluid 2-3 days before she shows her face. So far, nothing. Not even a hint.
I know, none of this is conclusive, and while one part of me things that with this BFN today it is the right results, another part just doesn't agree and is conviced there is life growing in me.
I got another test, this time the digital one, they are so much less of a pain. Won't use them though tomorrow, I promise..
No serious, I won't use another one until Tuesday. AF is due either Tuesday of Wednesday, so I should get a hint, then.
Lenora said she didn't post + unitl she was a week late, and the first MC I didn't get a + until I was a day late, either, so we'll see.

Not giving up, not yet, not until my visitor showes up...

No, I didn't. I am really feeling AF coming along, so I don't want to waste any more money on tests. If I am wrong, I will be late on Wednesday, that's early enough.
I don't think this was my month. If you read my last post in my journal, DH agreed to try after some big race his company is sponsoring that is in October. Before that he has too much stress to really focus on it.

Yeah, I read that. You must be happy about that! I wish my husband would reconsider another one. He keeps saying he's too old! He's 41 BUT I'm only 31!!! I could go for one more.

Well, I did test this morning at 3. I was so tired, though, that I went back to bed without waiting the entire time. I kept dreaming that it is positive, so much so that when the alarm woke me at 5, it took me a while to remember what the result was.
So I looked at the test again, and I saw a VERY faint line.
I then took a digital one at work 3 hours later, and it said negative.
I took another one tonight, and now, after about 45 minutes, a line is coming up again, more distinct than on the one this morning. The test I took this morning and the one I took tonight I ordered online, they are supposed to be reading levels of only 20 whatever the unit is.
The digital doesn't read that low, I think.
So, I am not sure. Well, the same thing happened last time, and it turned out I was pregnant. Those tests did that before, didn't show pg until about 30-40 minutes after taking it. But they never did it before and then turned out to be false.

I guess I will see if AF shows up tomorrow. I still can't "smell" her, which would really be due by now, since she was supposed to be here today.

The really weird thing is that I don't really know how I feel about probably being pg again. Part of me says there is no way I am going to mc again, another part says there is no way I am going to have another baby

Soo many feelings, ....

Thanks Lenora, I need those. I should just be happy, but I am not. Not sure what I am, though.

I KWYM. when i first found out I was pregnant with this one, it was hard to be happy until the end of the first trimester. Of course, that I had some sort of viral infection in my sinuses didn't help!
