I REALLY wanted today to be the day

Today is our 7th wedding anniversary and I am 11 or 12 DPO. So, I got the bright idea to test this morning because nothing would be a better anniversary present than a BFP, right? But, I got a BFN. :( On the bright side, the brown spotting has stayed away so far since I started the progesterone. I only have a couple more days to take it, then I just wait for AF. If she's determined to show, I hope she shows quickly so I can get on with things. Oh man, it would have been so perfect to announce a BFP at Thanksgiving dinner with my family...*sigh*. I am not getting myself too upset though, I have a dinner date with DH tonight and I am really looking forward to spending some QT with him! :)

I tested on dpo 10 and got a BFN, then tested on dpo 15 and got BFP.....an article I read is anything before dpo 15, you will get an inaccurate reading, but dpo 15 and above you get a 99.9% accurate reading.

Thanks everyone! I went back and recounted my days and it turns out I was either 10 or 11 DPO, not 11 or 12. I'm hoping I was only 10. However I used one of those internet cheapies that is supposed to be really sensitive, so I feel like if I was preggo, it would have picked something up. Who knows...I'll just wait and see...that's all I can do!

We had a good anniversary for the most part. DD has had a stomach bug, but we thought the worst was over yesterday. We were wrong. The babysitter called in the middle of our dinner to inform us she vomited everywhere! Poor thing. Needless to say, we cut our date short and rushed home. She seems much better today, so I hope the worst is over!

Happy belated anniversary Suz!! Sorry a nasty stomach bug interrupted your date night -that's no fun for anyone :(

So what's the plan? When are you testing again? Have you picked a cut off date for the progesterone? Lol -sounds like I'm playing 20 questions ;)

Thanks girls! And to add to the fun, I have the stomach bug now! It is awful! I'm praying my lunch stays with me... :/

I don't know...I thought about testing again Thursday because I am supposed to go to one of those places where you paint and BYOB that night, but if this stomach mess doesn't clear up by then I won't be doing that!
My last dose of progesterone was yesterday. I'm only on it for 10 days at a time. I just wonder how long its going to take AF to show after stopping it. I hope that if I'm not pg, it doesn't take too long! I've read some horror stories! Fingers crossed that its a smooth transition!

Angela - Are you in the 1WW yet?? How's it going??

Hey Suz! I guess I'm technically in the 2ww now at 8dpo. I've been ridiculously sick for the last week so I haven't been thinking too much about ttc. I'll probably test on Thursday at 10dpo only because I'm taking OTC meds & will stop them in the unlikely event I get a bfp.

Stomach bugs suck!! Luckily that is one of the only symptoms missing from my week of icky sickiness! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we both scored bfps on the same day? Lol -maybe our bodies have been waiting for the stars to align to make that happen ;)

Hope you kept your lunch down!

Suz, the stomach bug must be coming around because I think I am getting it too! I have been having some severe stomach issues all day and now I'm getting chills along with it. Boooo. :( FX'ed we both feel better soon.

And Angela, how are you doing! Sounds like you got a nasty little bugger. Feeling any relief yet with your antibiotics? I took those pregnancy safe antibiotics last month and they gave me awful side effects! What did you get prescribed?

So Angela, are we having a POAS party tomorrow? I almost hate to test...its such a make or break at this point! I'm nervous just thinking about it!

Lex...I know its going around here pretty bad...I've heard of a lot of people coming down with it. I had chills with mine too. It was not fun. I feel a lot better today though! Hope you feel better soon!!
