So I still haven't gotten a darker PG-test than the original "very light" (almost non-existant) one. I keep trying to tell myself that it is still SOOOO early, and that by tomorrow or the next day I should have an obvious second line . . .

I can't help being horribly nervous that something already went wrong, though.

Plus my temp this morning . . .well, this is what happened.

I normally temp at 6:30. This morning I woke up at 5:55 in a cold sweat. I had gone to bed wearing this stretchy shirt and it was all damp and plastered to me, and I was shivering. I took my temp and got 97.95, which made me really concerned because it should be over 98 for me if I am PG. So then I tried to go back to sleep and while I was laying there, I realized that I thought the shirt was making me colder, because it was damp, and stuck to me--it seems to be drawing the heat out of me. So I took it off and felt back into half-sleep.

At 6:30 I temped again (and felt much warmer), and it was 98.41--which is GREAT, but I feel like I can't really trust it because I had been half awake for a half hour.

So I was thinking my "real" temp was somewhere between these, so I looked at what the "adjusted for time" temp would be, and I got 98.07, which I ended up using on my chart.

But, do you think it is reasonable to think that the original temp was artificially low because of my damp shirt? I certainly felt really cold when I woke up.

Sigh. I hate the first trimester.

How is everyone else doing?

My line at 11 DPO was nonexistent on an IC and barely there on an EPT. I imagine that at 6/7/8/9 DPO your lines will still be REALLY faint. The point is...the barely there line has shown up on more than one test? In that case, I think it's likely just SUPER early. Dark test vibes!! Oh...and as for your temp, 97.95 is still really high, but I think your adjusted temp is the way to go. I know I've taken mine after 30 minutes half asleep and it seems to bump it a bit, so I think the adjusted one is a happy compromise.

AFM: I scheduled my NT scan and my next appt. I would have probably opted out of the scan, but my science-oriented husband wants all the information we can get. At least we'll get another u/s, so I won't complain about that! It's just too bad it's not for another month. :)

Oh! And Adrienne: You can change my EDD to September 11.

Erin, thanks for the reassurance, I think you are right. One reason I was getting really nervous is that the HPT I took yesterday didn't even have as much of a line as the one I took the day before. But I think it was just that my pee was less diluted that day, because this morning I held my FMU as long as possible and the faint line today is slightly darker than the one from two days ago (though still barely perceivable, LOL), but I guess that is good. I think part of it too is that these lines only show up in natural light so when I was agonizing over them last night I was like: "I'm just crazy! There aren't even lines here!" But this morning they were back, so it's okay, LOL!!

When is your scan? I don't think we are planning on getting it either, but on the other hand, it will be nice for you to get an extra u/s and see the bean!

It'll be March 3, aka forever away!

And yeah, in those early days, the dilution of your urine matters. I'm glad the one today was darker than the previous ones; I think that's a great sign. I'm just sure they will keep getting darker in the days to come!

Thanks Erin! March definitely seems like forever--but even next week seems like forever to me right now!! I HATE the first trimester, I feel like I'm walking on eggshells while balancing a stack of plates on my head, and if anything breaks AF is going to show up!!! EEEEEEEEEEEK.

I know what you mean. I still feel that way 8+ weeks in. I think once you have a m/c, chemical or otherwise, you "lose your innocence" in a way because you know that things can go wrong. I just can't wait to be out of the 1T. Do you think you'll get a blood test or anything?
