Already getting "antzy" (m)

Well, today is cd 26, 9dpo. I have been using my progesterone since after ovulating and I am already getting antzy about testing!!!! If I had one upstairs in the bathroom closet I would probably use it tomorrow. But, knowing how I am, I purposely have not gone out and bought any tests ahead of time because I know it would be like flushing money down the toilet.

It is now a test of willpower. I can only expect myself to take it day by day. I will try to wait as long as I possible can before driving myself crazy!!! As it was, last month I tested 14dpo & AF came almost as soon as the test was finished.

UGH

Take care

Terra,

I know that feeling all too well. You have timed everything according to plan, you've tried something new, and you just have high, high hopes. As you know from my dream, I also have high hopes for you! It's so hard to wait to test, but you are smart not to have tests in the house. I remember last time I tested I was shaking so hard that I had a hard time keeping the stick in the right place! Then it was negative...so I try not to allow myself to get to the test stage until I feel pretty sure of the outcome. Hopefully you can hold off a little longer!

Go to the library, check out a book and make that your obsession for the next few days to take your mind off the test!

Take care!

Stupid question - still learning - what is dpo?

I am making assumptions - but I think the are not good! Good luck wiht the patience thing - I know I have none!

Question: For each of my pregnancies I had minor "spotting" when the egg implanted. That is how I knew for sure - did you ever get that before? I knew I was before because I never got that....

Terra,

What day does AF usually come for you? If you are pretty regular I would just try to wait until AF is due, if you can! I know how hard this process is - the waiting is definitely a test of patience.

I know how you feel right now, the excitement, the hope, the nervousness --- been there and I am defintely rooting for you and keeping my fingers crossed!

Keep us posted!

Well, actually, AF, at least over the past 7 months or so has been arriving anywhere from 10 to 12 dpo, with spotting often starting at 8-10dpo. Last month, however, I was using progesterone and that helped to hold AF off til 14 dpo with no pre-AF spotting at all. I am also using progesterone this month, so if I wait until 14 dpo to see what happens (either see if AF arrives or test) that will bring me to Wed, 3/31.

Trying to hold out til then

Terra, I know just what you mean. I am a POAS junkie but it is good you haven't bought any. Definitely try to wait till AF is due or past due. I always say, the quickest way to bring on AF is to take a HPT.

Hang in there.

Keeping good thoughts for you,

Dawn

Good days and bad days. I think I was riding a "high" this week with the news of the pregnancy.

Then today I was reading some posts on a site related to kidney disease, and got very depressed. Many of the people suffering kidney failure were my age (33).

I'm' trying to be patient for my doc visit Monday - thank you so much for asking! This board has been a life savior..I so enjoy reading everyone's posts and taking my mind off my own issues -if only for a an hour or so!

I do wish you all the best - hopefully you'll get the same news I did!
