TTC confessions - August
20
Mon, 08-02-2010 - 3:53pm

Since it's a new calendar month, I thought I'd start us off cause I need to confess.

I got a -HPT with an IC (wondfo) this morning. BUT I saved my FMU, went to Target and got FRER and CBE digital, and literally wasted $7 by using one of each on the very same FMU that got a negative with the IC. For shame...

I hear ya!

I foolishly tested w/EPT & then a cheapie just in case the EPT wasn't as sensitive.
I saved my pee in cup under the sink so DH wouldn't see & did the cheapie after he left for work.

Its a wonder I dont go blind trying to squint a line when looking @ the tests.

Im now eating pineapple in hopes of reaping its implantation benefits! HA!
WHo am I kidding, AF will be here any day....

So I just got a + OPK one week ago which means I am likely 5-6 DPO and I took an EPT Digital test today ... I literally could NOT help myself. The whole time I was getting out my little cup and opening the package I kept telling myself this is a HUGE waste of time, you are just going to get disappointed, yadda yadda yadda and then you guessed it, a BIG, HUGE, GIGANTIC "Not Pregnant" was blaring in my face. I knew it was way too early and a total waste of money and yet I did it to myself anyway.

So I've been trying to do this healthy diet that is supposed to increase your odds of fertility. Whole foods, fruits, veggies, no sugar etc. Well, this weekend I fell off the wagon and all I ate was junk. Candy, pizza, mexican good, coke. As I type I'm sitting here with a box of Sugar Babies. Oh well. Start back up tomorrow I guess :)

Well, lemme see if I can't make you feel better. OPK's differ from HPT's in a lot of ways but one of them is that you SHOULD be getting - OPK's before you get + ones. If you get a + OPK on your very first one, you are starting to test wayyyyyyy too late and

I told myself after first time using CBEFM I would stop using OPKs as well.
I cant stop, since I test in am with CBEFM, I always get a + OPK b4 I get a Peak on CBEFM since I test with OPK in afternoon.

Im starting to get sick & I should O any day...baaaaaaad timing. Of course thats when you're more susceptible to getting sick since your body is working so hard at pushing an egg out! Just another snafu in the process...

I'd confess to how many OPKs and HPTs I used this cycle, but I'm too ashamed to go up and count how many of each I have left. Only other little confession is that I lied about dpo when I was at Urgent Care the other day. I was 11dpo, but told them I was 10. They were going to do a HCG urine test anyway, I guess, but I thought if I put myself back 1 day they'd do it for sure . . . my hope was that they'd have a test more sensitive than my Wondfos. (They didn't.)
