All I can do is laugh at myself! Ha! I swore that I was going to be cool, calm and collected this time around with ttc but alas I've gone back to my old ways! I bought some cheapo tests at the dollar store on Friday (I knew I should've waited!) and here I am at only 8 DPO and I'm talking myself down from taking one already. Seriously, why would I take a test right now when I KNOW it's way too early? Because I have a POAS addiction apparently that I thought I had kicked! LOL! I bought two tests - 1 to take on Thursday when I'm 12 DPO and one for Tuesday when I'll be 10 DPO and still probably too early to test but think by then I'll have the shakes without being able to get my grubby hands on a pee stick!


I'm also already obsessing over every little ache, cramp, and tiny bout of naseau. And yes, of course the ever-so-popular toilet paper examination looking for implantation spotting - can that be yellow? LOL! I know, I'm losing my mind...slowly but surely! :)


Ok, just had to give myself a hard time because I'm smarter than this (usually!).

I agree with the stocks on pregnancy tests. I have bought a ton of them within the last few years. Especially lately, AF is several days late and I'm showing no signs of it coming anytime soon; I keep taking a test hoping to get a BFP but instead I get a BFN. I know you're supposed to wait two days after getting a BFN but I can't do that, I keep taking one every day, it's a good thing the dollar tree sells them and I can get them online for way cheap.

Well I tested this morning - BFN. Boooo.... But I'm not giving up hope yet becuase I'm only 10 DPO and used a cheapo Dollar Store test, so I'll try again on Thursday. AF is actually due on Saturday so if I still haven't gotten either AF or a positive test I'll go splurge on a trusty old CBE Early test and hopefully I'll know for sure either way. I just keep thinking how cool it would be to get pregnant on the first try after having such a long, trying time ttc Scarlett. Don't I deserve for it to be super easy for once? Oh well, only time will tell - I hate time! LOL!


Thanks for reading if you have! :)
