I have thought all day that today was 12dpo... when I sat down to write this post, I realized that it is actually 13dpo. That was the fastest 1 day wait ever! I don't know if I am having any pregnancy symptoms or if they are progesterone side effects or just good old PMS. My boobs are sore, I have a lot of gas and constipation... and I'm emotional and moody. I am not supposed to test until Friday (my period should be here anytime between now and then), but I couldn't wait. I tested this morning and got a negative... I think!? I used a FRER test and I swear I could see a very light shadow if I looked in the right light. Seriously... I probably had to hold it up to the light, stand on my head and squint to see something, but I swear there was something there. Who knows... my mind could very possibly be playing tricks on me. I didn't have the best sample this morning because I woke up with one of the kids at 3 and had to go to the bathroom. Then I was up for the day at 7... so it was really only a 4 hour hold! I wanted to be sure that I had enough tests for tomorrow morning if my period hadn't shown up, so I hauled the kids out in the rain to stock up. You get a lot of funny looks from people when you have two noisy toddlers and are buying a bunch of pregnancy tests ;)
I spent the evening with a friend who is pregnant with her first. She got pregnant after having sex one time in the entire month... without even trying. They are married, but were actually trying to avoid. I don't know how many times she complained to me about the discomfort when sleeping, waking up to pee in the middle of the night, heartburn... all those things that I would do ANYTHING to be experiencing right now. It makes me so angry when people take those little things for granted... they are miracles.
I can only pray for good news in the morning. I will hold my pee until the wee hours of the morning. There will be no misleading results of the test tomorrow...
Wish me luck!
