I just couldn't wait
On Wednesday (8dpiui) I was 100% convinced it hadn't worked. No good reason; the bloating is basically all gone now, though I did still have an achy sensation in my uterus when I did a lot of walking (I've been doing a LOT of walking this week. I realized that it was a way of compensating in advance in case I do get pregnant and can't go anywhere or do anything for 9 months again).
Today (10dpiui), even though I knew it was too early, that a negative would tell me nothing, that things could change, I just couldn't wait any longer. So I tested this morning.
Negative. Decidedly so.
Again, I know it's way too early to be definitive. (Although if I had tested at this point when I was pregnant with BG, I would have gotten a positive, based on 48 hour doubling time and what I read somewhere that most HPTs detect an hCG level of 25.) So I'm trying not to be too pessimistic.
But I'm still cranky.
