Hi! It's me! Waiting!

Sigh. So. I'm in the shower today. I'm 5 days past my transfer. And I'm thinking in the shower how taking a HPT test would maybe be a good idea, you know, since I'm technically 8 DPO?!


Trust me, I know that 'this way madness lies' so I won't do it. But it's pretty funny to listen to the little battle of wills in my head:

Crazy Self: Do it! It'll be a BFP and then you can continue to think positive!
Rational Self: No, no. It's a waste of a test.
Crazy Self: But didn't you feel that tiny twinge in your uterus last night? It's a SIGN!
Rational Self: Um, you can't possibly be feeling 'signs' this early. And, dumbass, you are on progesterone!

Sigh. So, to keep myself busy, I've been knitting. A lot. In the past week I've almost finished 2 sweaters - one for my 4 year old niece for Christmas, and another for one of the little embryos that is hopefully nestling itself in for the long haul. It's a good way to help pass the time. I've been relaxing since Thursday - I was very good with the whole chair rest thing.... and then this weekend my only big outing was to the yarn store (supplies!). And today I have off work.

9 more sleeps until we test.

Pee sticks are evil. They really are. They call to you from the cabinet, and no matter where you are, you can't ignore them.


Hang in there, and stay away from the pee sticks. Keep busy!!!

I'm a known pee stick abuser, so I'm afraid I can't help you out. Bad influence. Bad bad bad. I should have bought stock in First Response.

I always wait until AT LEAST 9 dpo, because we all know how reliable testing THEN is :)

I think we should think of some good ways for you to use the pee sticks BESIDES as a pregnancy test. Stirring your morning coffee? Checking the amount of rain that fell the night before?

Be strong!!!

I am right behind you. I should be having my ER on Thursday!

I am 8dpo too!!! I almost bought tests at the dollar store today but convinced myself otherwise. I will be POAS on Wednesday morning though!!!

If you keep me from peeing, I will do the same for you! :o)

New reader here :O).

I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you for the next nine sleeps! Hang in there, step away from the HPT's!

Hang in there and don't test too early, if you can avoid, it won't do anything but worry you until the beta. It's tough!

Pee sticks are dangerous. Especially when you start buying them at Costco. Ask me how I know...

Baby Step said...

I nominated you for an award! Come take a peek.

I can't offer any words of wisdom here because I am an addict. Good luck though.

If you can, try to avoid buying them (until the day it could be accurate). Once you actually have them in your house, it's very hard not to use them. That's what I try to do. Good luck!
