Hugs Becky and Mamamash. Infections are no good!
I need to step away from the computer and TTC sites!
Hugs to all!! What a yucky Saturday Hang in there Katiecornflakes, Becky, Serena and Jjh5351!! Becky So sorry about the infection. It should clear up very soon and I doubt the Flagyl with affect anything implantation-wise. Blonhrt so hoping you get awesome New Year's news!! Dahlia Boo on not being able to access results. I am with Mamamash, it can take a few days to get a noticeably darker line. So glad you're feeling better and not so sad. Arguments with DH are never fun but I found I was uncontrollably emotional when pregnant. Lots and lots of tears! Mamamash Hope you and DD are feeling better today, sounds rotten!! Can't wait to hear about your numbers!
Pearldoodle! Sounds like that might be implantation bleeding.
AFM I got my package of Wondfos yesterday, never used them before. I tried one out this morning and initially thought, OMG, that's positive, light but not a squinter. But then after 5 minutes I couldn't see anything but the control, except for pink on the edges of the test at the test line. The directions say the results are only valid at 5 minutes, not after. I see LOTS of mamas on here and other TTC sites with pics of their Wondfo strips many days after testing and a line is still clearly visible so I am thinking the directions are not really true. I am just not sure what to think. I am shaking! I am trying to just breathe and not totally freak out. Holding my pee for a few hours (aiming for 4) and will test again with SMU!! In 8 cycles of TTC, never had even a squinter before!! Feeling giddy but trying not to get too wacky here. Fx!!
I threw away the first one and I just tested again, couldn't hold it any longer (only about 2 hours). I don't know now. I feel sorta silly and embarrassed. I used a FRER, which was decidedly negative, and a Wondfo PT and OPK (for line reference). I *think* I still see a shadow of a test line on the Wondfo. So hard to know now, and my urine was probably not concentrated enough - especially at only 9DPO! I am certain it wouldn't show up in a pic when it's so light IRL!! I am going to calm down and plan to retest tomorrow morning, unless I can hold my pee for 4+ hours later today (which seems doubtful). I so hope I am not imagining this!!
Hang in there yourself, Dahlia!! I am sure you'll get your reassurance tomorrow
Dahlia, don't freak out. If you want something else to obsess over (not that any of us need that!), there's a thread on the pee sticks board on twoweekwait.com where people post their sticks with beta results and you can see on there there's a huge variation in both darkness of lines and betas at different DPOs. Might make you feel better that a whole range of things are normal and end up fine.
Sparkle, I'm so excited for you!!! So much for waiting until Tuesday, huh?? Try, try to get a pic for us if you can. You are going to make me want to pee on something!
AFM, still symptom spotting the days away. Tired, peeing a lot, mildly sore boobs. Could explain them all away with life circumstances and/or AF gearing up so trying not to get excited. EWCM this AM, which is odd. Had been creamy. Not sure what that means, guess it could be an estrogen spike before AF. Blech. Still trying to hold out until Tuesday, but you girls are making me want to test! But the majority of me thinks it will probably be BFN and I'd rather just wait until if I see a BFN I believe it, rather than holding out hope, yk?
MamaMash So sorry to hear DD is still sick. I don't like fevers that high at all. I am hoping she gets an antibiotic that clears everything up quickly!
Dahlia I'm a worrier too. I get it. You'll get great news tomorrow!!
Thanks everyone for the support and well wishes!! I am completely second guessing myself now. I'm wondering if I just thought I saw something because they are a new test to me. *sigh* I will let you all know tomorrow!! And yes, I totally caved. I got that shiny new package yesterday and just couldn't help myself this morning!
Katie thank you so much, that does make me feel loads better. I had no idea beta results could differ so drastically from the darkness of the line you'd expect to see on a hpt
CONGRATS Pearldoodle!!!! This month has been amazing for bfps!!
Good luck ladyelms! I hope the rest of your wait flies by, and that you get a bfp in 5 days!
Sparklemaman don't feel bad or count yourself out! Those lines are tricky! I can't tell you how many times I've done the exact same thing Hang in there, you'll get your positive! I just know it!
AFM I'm keeping myself pretty well distracted from worrying and obsessing today; my husband and I are painting our bedroom! Next on our list of home improvement projects is the nursery
I've already chosen the wall color- a nice cream color with a little touch of very pale yellow. It'll match both bedding sets I like (for boy or girl), and is nice and dreamy.
MamaMash, let us know how everything goes with your daughter! I hope you both get well soon!
