Just wondering what you ladies do to keep yourselves busy during your last couple of days? Im currently 9dpo. Going to try to test on Saturday although I know that it is early. I am looking for a place here the carries FRE tests. Atleast then it will be 11dpo and 3 days early should be okay for one of those tests. It is my first month to test again. And going nuts..going over it time and again having conversations with myself..like.."well a test only cost this much$$ and i could spare that if I bought one and it was too early." "maybe ill try tomorrow, some people do get a = at 10dpo." "if I get a - i will just test again." lol..I the majority of you have been here much longer than I have. Do you still obsess like this? Any ideas would be helpful..Think I was givena PV vaccine cause they arent working..lol:)

Thanks Nat,

Ive spent the entire day cleaning my house, not trying to do anything to strenuous (just in case;) All I can smell is oranges..lol. Trying to keep busy cause my last cycle was only 25 days. Which would put me at AFNW today throught he next couple of days. still more nervous about when to test then about AF rearing her ugly head today..Strange. Thanks for your response:) Hope you last your 5 more days and see your BFP.

HI Anna, Hey, I'm at 10dpo too and yes i feel anxious. It is really so silly that I get excited about temping every morning even though I know, whether pg or not, it is normal for my temps to be up until 14dpo. Still no signs and I think I'm too chicken to test until at least 15dpo, so five days for me. We women are a nutty species stressing so much aren't we! Well, this morning I've been to the Saturday market and stocked up for our sacred sunday brunch and I've now I#ve got a list of fun spring decorating things to do at home before I go into work this evening. Otherwise not much to do, but hope for the best. There were so many pg ladies and babies at the market and it makes me so envious! Well, here's to us both graduating this month! Take Care and here's some Patience Vibes ~^~^~! Hugs, Nat

Thanks,

Still anxious here and driving myself insane!! Pretty sure I am 10dpo and embaressed to admit that i have already tested and of course got the inevitable BFN that I knew very well I would get in the first place..But, It really does eat at you. And then there are those preg. test commercials on tv every 10, so when you try to use that as a distraction you are doomed now..lol.AFNW between today(29th) and and the third as my cycles run usually between 28-31days but this last one was 25?? So im siting on edge as it is..guess stressing can only encourage the hag..Anyone care to share some of their anxiety and perhaps some PV's

Thanks,

~Anna

I think I do what you do, which is going over all these things in my mind. Now, I haven't really had the wait the way most folks have because my LP is too short, so the wait is cut short. The good news about that is the wait isn't as long, but the bad news is that I never seem to be pg.

Well, no good answers, but the other thing I do is plan what I will do if AF shows--for example sushi, sangria, hard exercise (not in that order of course). That way, even though I am sad, I have a whole booby prize worked out to make it a little less disappointing.

Good luck, and hope this is your last wait for 9 months!
