So some of you know I have yet to get my BFP, but had some awesome timing this month totally by accident, and came here to talk to you ladies about it.
A few days ago I picked up two boxes of hpt and took them home but then my sister came to visit and I left them in a bag that some of her family was sleeping in so I didn't use them till yesterday, first I did notice that the boxes were different colors but just thought it was some kind of marketing thing and didn't pay attention. Lucky it was a pee in a cup kind... the first test was an OPK gosh did I feel dumb. So since I still had my pee in a cup I got the other actual hpt out and used it.... BFN. My period was due that day, and I had a tiny dip in in my temperature so I figured 'I guess AF is coming' plus I FELT like she was coming. So I spent the day crying and talking to my DH about when we could actually start trying since this time was an accident.
Last night I was feeling so crampy but AF still hadn't shown so I decided a bath, a book and a mug of hot chocolate were the answer... not so much, the hot chocolate made me nauseous, the hot bath made me feel worse and added the element of feeling breathless, and the book was actually nice, but hard to concentrate since I felt bad.
Today I woke up like normal and took my temp 97.5, but then I realized I woke up an hour earlier than I normaly do, so I stayed in bed and tried to sleep, sometime or another DH came and cuddled with me and the warmth of his belly on my back really helped all the back pain I'm getting. my alarm went off I took my temp again 97.9. I thought 'maybe DH warmed me up, I was kinda cold before, but which temp do I use? So he got up to use the bathroom and I temped again after 2 minutes 97.7, and then again after 3 more minutes 97.9 So basically I went with the 97.9 and noted the differences in my journal.... but I still fully expected, especially with all the back pain and cramps in my belly that AF was on her way... but now it is 6pm and still not a sign of her showing, no spotting, no cm, every little urge to pee has me running to the bathroom expecting to get AF....
So I guess how likely is it that my hpt was wrong? I know it is late enough that I *should get a positive test, but maybe not? AF should have shown up yesterday according to my chart, but hasn't.
I feel nuts, and I'm trying not to let it get to me, but I'd really like to join you guys.... HELP!
I've heard of a lot of women who didn't get pos.'s until a few days after. I've also read where it can take up to a week after AF is due to get a pos. because of the difference in implantation times, etc. As long as AF hasn't showed, there's still hope. Good luck! Hope you get your answers soon!
