Silly Maybe Baby is saying I am ovulating (or near to) when I'm on my 3rd day of AF, what the heck???!!!
After this months ups and downs I am certainly going to think twice before I start POASing before AF is due. It's just too much heartache and too much money.
You tell yourself 'just one more little test' then one turns into 6 before you know it and you are still only 10dpo. It doesn't stop. You test again if u get a bfn incase it was too early. You test again if it was a BFP to check its getting darker.
Honestly I don't trust hpts much now anyway. They aren't definitive and I feel only bloods can tell you what's really happening and whether its a sticky bean.
When I say 'you' I really mean 'I'. Not pointing fingers. Just this is where my head is at right now. I fully understand everyone has a different reason for POAS when they do and that's totally fine too.
I think I will send my hpt's to work with DH. Then I won't be tempted to test while he is away!
My AF was seriously late last month. Usually 36-38 day and she came on CD49! When she was late I was wondering if I'd had a missed miscarriage again. And I was ok with that, because I hadn't hadnt gotten excited (where as last time i was devestated) So I think a positive then a chem/AF just makes it cruel :-(
chems are cruel, not fair at all
I am usually good with only doing one test first thing in the morning, but for some reason this time I have been a bit more obsessive.
If I get another BFP tomorrow, and it's darker than today, I will take that as a good sign, and then leave it for a couple of weeks and go to the GP to organise a dating scan etc.
