Testing Thread

When is everyone planning to test?? I'm 9 DPO today and got a line at 10 DPO with DS. Just got done at Walmart and had to talk myself down from buying any tests. I'm determined not to get a bfn so I'll be waiting till I'm late to POAS. Since that is another week away, I need to live vicariously through all of you!!

So dish!! When will you POAS?! Post about it here!! KUP when you do POAS!!

I got my BFP with dd at 14 dpo...I was very jaded and off the early testing by the time she was conceived. LOL.

If I o'd on my average O day, I'm 11 dpo today...but who knows when I O'd. I don't have any HPTs right now but some are in the mail. Eeeeek! My projected AF date is Sunday, but my last cycle was longer than normal (total tease) so who knows. It's all so up in the air!

As a rule I don't test early and wait for af to show or not befor testing, however this month Father's day will come about around 9 dpo and hubbys birthday is right around the time af should show, but I am out of town that day at a wedding, so if I think I may get a bfp I might test early, probably for his birthday rather than father's day though and wrap the positive test up as a gift. Not sure what will happen this month though, af was strange this cycle and a couple of days early so not sure if it will go back to normal or stay on this few days early track, so far with o-ing we are on the few days early track.

I'm testing as soon as I get my IC's I ordered this week. Not exciting though b/c I'm just testing to see if I'm back to negative since my m/c. But, I'll have a bunch of tests and I'll be ready for when I think it's actually possible I could be preggers again. Smile

OMG, I was just at the pharmacy and I can't believe PG tests cost $20 for ONE! I nearly died. I guess that's why I didn't buy a digital when I was pg with DD. The store brand was only $13 but STILL! I'll wait for my ICs!

I know. crazy isn't it! I am getting 18 IC's from earlypregnancytests.com for about $15, that is total price with "free" shipping. I know you can even get some IC's less expensive than that. I have ordered from there before though and liked the tests.

Broke is right! I just ordered 25 HPTs for $13.92 (after shipping) from save on tests. That's cheaper than ONE of the drug store ones. No wonder these HPT selling sites do well. I should open one. Blum 3

Yeah tests in store are super expensive here as well, I am out of opks so hopefully will get a bfp this month, but I may need to buy more pregnancy tests because if I bleed like last time I use a lot because my doctor sucks and won't do anything to make sure things are ok with bub. Darkening lines make me feel better

In Canada we don't get mail on Saturdays. I thought it was the weirdest thing when I found out that USA had mail delivery on Saturday.

Looks like I missed out on a party yesterday!!!!!!!!! I better go catch up.

Here is today's test. :blueface:The weird thing is that I feel like I can see the lightest shadow where a line should be, but it doesn't show in pic or invert so I am chalking it up to my craziness.

I truly am just feeling let down right now. I mean my chart is spot on to last pg, my symptoms are seriously so similar. How could this not be it?

Hmmm, I don't know. It seems like it is just going to be a wait and see kind of thing. I'm sorry, I know I hate it when I don't know what is going on.

Australia doesn't either. Back in the day a few weeks before Christmas they would do a special Christmas Saturday delivery for two ish weeks, but not anymore.

Kim - I'm still pulling for you sweetie! I have to say that the ICs have been so crappy lately. I got 10 light lines a few cycles ago and some last time too (same batch) and they were just evaps I guess. They were so light it was hard to tell if they had color but they were absolutely there. And I was definitely not pregnant either time and nothing showed on any other tests...well except a blue dye but that's a blue dye for ya. Lol. With that said though, your chart looks fantastic and I think you have a really great chance. It looks just like your chart from before I agree. So maybe you are and your hcg just started out a little lower and isn't high enough to show up on a test yet. It's still possible for sure! Keeping everything crossed for you dear!

AF is due for me tomorrow. So far nothing. Hummmm....I guess we'll see. Last cycle was 30 days though so the universe might just mess with me again! LOL (my average cycle length is 27 days).
