10DPO... have more tests... will test again tomorrow. They are super cheap (remember, I paid $1 each for them) so it might take a few days....but i think I have like 5, so I could make a nice progression. Smile

Don't you know that you guys aren't "real people"? I didn't tell any "real" people before I told my husband... and I'm not planning on telling anyone else anytime soon... maybe my mom, but that will be it for a little while at least.

Oh shoot, my kids and husband are going to be disappointed that I'm not real! Maybe being not real can get me out of mopping at naptime Smile

Didn't mean to make you defensive, everyone is different with who and how they tell people or what order they do it in! I think everyone should do exactly what works best for their relationships! Congrats again!

Oh, I wasn't being defensive! Just explaining my thinking! Smile DH wasn't home when I got the positive, and I really wanted to post the lines for all of you to see (and to confirm to me that they were there!) before you went to bed last night (well, those of you that saw it, anyway...). So yeah...I don't feel bad at all about what I did...because, as I said, you're not "real". And yes, I think it should get you out of mopping. Smile I definitely wouldn't tell any one in my real life before I told DH.

As I said in the chat thread.... I was, of course, really hoping for a nice darker line this morning...but I ended up with one test that was fainter than yesterdays and 4 more total negatives! So I'm not sure what is going on, because then I also got a pretty positive OPK. See?

DH is picking up some tests after work. Maybe it's just these bad cheap tests. Maybe it's a chemical pregnancy...

Well FMU would be the most concentrated so if you tested 4 times then the first one was probably the most reliable. BUT it's only 11 dpo for you, right? That is still very, very early. I say just test with FMU for the next couple of days.

Also, I wouldn't put too much stock into the OPK. I know people use them for that but I think you are better off just using pregnancy tests since you know they are more reliable. I know you know this but I know how I am and I obsessed over these kinds of things when TTC.

Well the first two were FMU and then the second 3 were off the same cup of pee that I peed like really only a few minutes later. I was going a little crazy.

I just had hardly noticeable streaks of pink when I wiped the last time. I'm starting to think this was over before it even started.

DH brought home tests and I took one tonight after a couple hours not peeing, and it was totally white too. Will take one more in the morning, but I have a feeling that I was pregnant and am not anymore. Which is ok. It's all going to work out perfectly. I want a baby for my birthday- June 12! I was my dad's birthday present all those years ago (his birthday is June 13), so I think it would be awesome to carry on the tradition of having a baby near a parent's birthday. So... I'm ok either way this goes. If this little baby is just playing games with me right now, fine... if s/he's not ready just yet, that's fine too. We'll try again next month.

Oh, and the only thing I didn't really appreciate... when I told DH that tonight's test was negative too, his response was definitely a look of bewilderment, and then he goes, "You can't do that to me." I think my jaw dropped. He doesn't understand that a line is a line... he thinks only a dark line counts as a positive, so he reckons I made the whole thing up at this point. Sigh. Silly men.

ETA: I explained further to DH that it wasn't that I made up the results of the first test, but simply, that I've had different tests giving me different results, and he apologized.

Oh, and you know what he suggested??? He suggested that from now on, I could not test until after I know I've missed my period... so that I can have really dark lines. HA HA HA!!!! Oh DH...he just has no idea, does he??? Smile

Mara--I'm completely stalking you just so you know....I'm hoping everything works out the way you want it to and I can't wait to see you with #2!

Today is a rough day for Miss Alyse. She normally naps 3 hours everyday, 10am-1pm, and today when I put her for her nap, she was playing and then all the sudden I heard a SCREAM, an I'm hurt scream. So I rushed into her room and she must ahve bit her lip or hit her lip or something cause she was bleeding a little Sad I snuggled her and gave her some water and she was fine, went to sleep for 25 mins!!! WHAT?? She's been up since...right now eating lunch next to me and then I'll try for a nap again. *crossing fingers*

Tonight I have a board meeting for MOMS Club...are any of you involved in MOMS Club in your neck of the woods? I love our group and now I'm the membership VP of our chapter. Keeps me busy and my brain from turning to mush, well most days anyway.

OH! I know there's lots of teachers on the board....Ben is gonna be 7 soon, in first grade, and he's reading probably on a 4th grade level. (He just finished Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and is working on Captain Underpants) I need suggestions for books that are content appropriate but still more advanced for him. Any ideas for books/series? Thanks!

So sorry your DH responded that way but glad he said he was sorry. My DH insisted on the whole no testing til it's time for AF rule a long time ago. I think it's actually a good idea and try to follow it although I understand the need to test early too. Stupid pee sticks and their incessant calling out to us during the 2WW.

Big Hugs! I hope that if you aren't expecting it's because those tests were somehow defective. Otherwise... Sad I know you'll keep us posted.

Sad Oh Mara, I am sorry. It does sound like a possible chemical pregnancy. I'm glad you were able to communicate to Joel what was going on. These guys really don't understand the tortuous 2ww at all, do they? I just tested in secret. I cannot tell you how many tests I snuck into our kitchen trash can when we were trying all that time. I was so preoccupied by it that I just had to test as soon as I thought I could get a line but I didn't want him to know how crazy I was.

On to the next month... :giveflower:

Obviously, have to wait for my period to actually start, but that is what I'm waiting for now. It was another stark white test this morning.
I tested while DH was in the shower and when he opened the curtain he looked sad, and asked me if I was ok. I said I was sad too, but that it's all ok and will work out for the highest good. We will be so happy, and stress free to welcome a baby in June or July!!!

Now, can my period hurry up and get here!?!?!?!? Wink

Sorry you had such a roller coaster but I'm glad AF isn't going to make you wait any longer.

I'll be stalkin' ya though and hoping for that BFP next month!!!

Three days isn't that bad a roller coaster... I'm really glad my period just started today. Whew. If I had had to wait much longer, I probably would have had a few crazy days. Smile

Of course, now that this happened this month, it worries me that it could happen again. But, I have to believe that when the time is right (which it SO will be next month!) another wee baby will come to stay. So pushing bad thoughts away, and keeping good thoughts for next month. Smile DH is on board for "trying hard". We decided today we would buy another set of sheets this weekend for the guest room (we haven't really had time to outfit all the extra rooms yet), which will now become not just the guest room, but also the sex room. Smile

When that happens it *could* mean a chemical pregancy but probably means you fertilized the egg but it didn't implant well enough in the uterus. It's a 50-50 chance of implantation.

*HUGS* So close! Best of luck this cycle! Biggrin
