Trouble TTC

Flame-Free Confession Tuesday (aka I'm an idiot)

So I bought a seven-pack of pregnancy tests on Amazon awhile ago.  When I used the first one to test out my trigger, it didn't work...no control line (almost like the pink dye got "stuck" before the place the lines were supposed to show up) so I already have it in my head that these cheapies suck.

Anyway, I tested this morning, (12dpt so 10? dpo) and got no dye at all...no control line or anything.  I didn't give it very much time, because I am feeling sick today (real sick not "omg i might be KU" sick) and I had no patience and was kicking myself for buying these stupid tests so I tossed it in the trash.

Fast fwd to a few hours later where I (STUPIDLY) decide to fish the test out of the garbage.  There now IS a control line, and, next to it, a faint (but not almost-invisible) extra line. 

Why the f- did I look at it now???  Why DIDNT I look at it after 2-3 minutes????  I know in my head that there is a 99.99% possibility that it's just an evap line.  And in my heart I really don't think I'm pregnant, but, but, but...

So now I'm home, feeling crappy, trying my best NOT to watch the TLC baby shows that I just tivo-ed, and wondering wtf the second line meant.

Please confess something equally ridiculous so I don't feel so dumb.  :)

    If this cycle doesn't work I think I want to take the next cycle off so that I can drink at my ten year college reunion but I'm going to tell my H that it's because I need a med break.  Zip it!

    I'm typically a lurker here, but trying to break out of my shell a little. 

    I typically get 5 days of spotting before AF shows, even on Prometrium.  Since its cycle #14 and I don't seem to be getting anywhere, I thought I'd give myself a little med break.  So of course I have no spotting, and AF is due in three days.  I can already see myself interpreting every little thing as possible symptoms.  I'm trying not to use the due date calculator.

    That could be a good sign, good luck!

    Yes

    We are the same age - I also have my ten reunion next month!

    As soon as we found out we had MFI and would most likely only get pregnant through IVF back in March - one of my first thoughts was "Well, at least I may make and enjoy my Alumni Weekend after all!"

    Is your college local? I ask b/c I"m in CT!

    Yeah as soon as I got over the fact that I will not have a cute bump at reunion I thought of how lame it would be to only be like six weeks at reunion so I will just be inexplicably not drinking. Not that I'd really complain but still. Our 5 year was such a blast that I'm hoping the 10 year will be too.  It's the first weekend in June.  It's only 90 minutes from me but we're staying in the dorms.

    I have totally done this. Several times. I don't understand what I expected to learn from it, either!

    I have also tested a second time one hour after the first time, b/c I threw the first one in the kitchen trash and couldn't remember if I thought it was darker or lighter than the previous day's. 

    OP- only a 7 pack? You are doing better than I. I tend to buy mine in 40 packs. Sigh. I have a problem.

    Love it! POAS no matter what kind!

    I must confess that I've taken 4 HPTs in 24 hours. And I'm still picking them up to analyze. I think the most recent one has the most visible evap and now I have to POAS tonight. 

    I met a girl in the REs office a few days before our ERs. She had her ER a day after mine and had a 3dt, so her ET was a day before mine. We've been texting. Both complaining about our BFNs yesterday. Today I text her and say I'm still a BFN, she says that she hasn't tested and wants to wait. 15 minutes later I get a picture MSG of her + HPT. Very obvious line.

    Of course I'm happy for her, but come on! She's only 7dp3dt and has a very obvious positive. And she tells me at 6dp5dt, I'm a day behind her transfer wise so I should get mine tomorrow. And really, does she think I want to see her hpt?

    Bwahahaha!  Thanks for the laugh!

    I missed my flight to a work conference on Friday because I gave myself about 15 minutes to get checked in, through security, and to the gate.  Was it really that important to straighten my hair?!   (and yes, I made it in time for my meeting)

    Before I got off BC was really excited to not get my period so much, cuz sometimes I would forget to take it and have to do two in a day and have heavy spotting. Now its been over 6 monthes and I'm like "well this is sort of what I wanted, not quite though" Ha!

    Some people just don't think.

    I tested a few days ago and was discouraged by a BFN (which is unusual for me, this isn't something I would normally be upset about), and so I haven't tested since. I probably should at this point, but I'm not too keen on seeing another big blank white space where a line should be. I have disposible cups in the bathroom to dip cheapies, and so this morning with FMU I peed in one. I looked at the cup for a minute, and then immediately dumped the urine into the toilet, flushed, and walked to the sink to wash my hands. I probably should have tested.
