I just couldn't wait

On Tuesday (7dpiui) I was 100% convinced it had worked. No good reason; I had a lot of achy stretchy sensations in my lower pelvis, which I remembered from last time, though it didn't feel quite the same.

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.

Oh my dear, I'm sorry. If it makes you feel better, I got a negative at 7dp3dt first thing in the morning, and it turned out to be twins, with a beta of one twenty something three days later, and I was testing with a FRED, so by reversing doubling times, I "should" have gotten a positive by then. Betas do not double in a straight, linear, consistent-hour-by-hour fashion at the beginning, is what I have been told.

My fingers are crossed for you. The waiting is the worst. Could the hours and days pass any more slowly....

I have been awaiting Saturday to know for you. Try again and let us know. Best wishes.

Negatives suck, even if you know it's probably too early. At 15dpo, my beta with P was 89; yet my EPT at 13dpo was barely positive. The EPT measured 25miu and so the backwards calculation says I should have been nearly twice that--but the test gave me a "squint under the bright light with it turned at a 36.8 degree angle with one eye closed and you might see it" kind of positive.

Still hoping for you!

Yeah... too early. I had a beta of 87 with Jasper on 12dp4dt, and had nothing on my hpt at 8dp4dt.

Still. Hugs.
