It's probably way too early anyway, but I keep thinking about how long I can possibly wait before I poas. I used to be really impatient about it, but now I'm thinking I want to put it off until the latest possible time, because I just don't want to know if I am pg or not. It's amazing how things change. I guess underneath it all I'm terrified.

I am not even going to look at what I said previously on another thread (I think it was that I will wait..at least week)...I managed 3 days. In the end - scared or not - I wanted to know. I guess I just didn't want to not know.....if that makes any sense.

Makes perfect sense - I hate not knowing...about anything. I'm waiting, too. Last two pg, I got a positive on a digital at 3 weeks (~8dpo). That'll be tomorrow if I'm back on a 28 day cycle. But I refuse to poas until I'm at least on cd35, so 2 more weeks. Next payday (not tomorrow's) if no AF, I'll get a test.

I am being good and taking my vitamins and trying to avoid large doses of caffeine, just in case.

I'm weakening...tomorrow is cd28 and I'm peeing all the time and eating everything in sight. I REALLY don't want to test until I'm sure AF has had a chance to show, but my resolve is weakening. Aug. 11th seems soooooo far away (my original earliest date I'd be willing to test). I'm still convincing myself that if I don't test and "AF" shows up that it will be just that, not another loss. Does that make sense? But I guess if I do test and get a bfp, then Beckie will have a buddy. AAAARRRRGGGHHHH...what to do?

I'm trying not to even think about it. I'm not keeping up with my cycle and last time I went to the store I completely resisted the urge to buy pregnancy tests ("just in case I might want to test sometime") and didn't buy them.

Hmm... tough call. I tested today, but I don't actually think af is anywhere near due, it was just a peace of mind panic reaction to my test results. So it's different when you're actually waiting for af. I would venture to guess that Beckie could wait a few weeks to have a buddy, but the question is, can you?

Aug 11 seems really far away to me too.

I don't think I'll make it. Dollar store tests are calling me...thankfully they're also closed for the night.
