So, if I ovulate on time this month FF will tell me to test either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. I am SO TORN as to whether I should follow their advice and wait it out or not. I mean....it would just be way too sweet to get a BFP *ON* Christmas! HOWEVER.....I don't want to "ruin" Christmas with a BFN. I'm especially torn because I really feel like we have our best chance this cycle. I am on a higher dose of Femara than I've ever taken (7.5mg) and my doc is dilating my cervix on CD 11 to give the swimmers an easier path to travel.
The realistic side of me says, "Who are you kidding? You know you'll be testing 3 times a day starting at 8 dpo!" LOL! But oh how I would love to get that wonderful, beautiful BFP on Christmas morning. Since starting TTC #3 one cycle ended with AF showing up 2 days before my birthday......this past cycle ended with AF showing up ON Thanksgiving Day..... If this cycle ends with AF showing up ON Christmas Day, I just think that'd be about the biggest kick in the teeth EVER!
Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!!
I wasn't always this way, but now I just test no matter what. If it were to be a BFP, it would be the best thing EVER, but I don't expect it. If I POAS in the morning and see a BFN, I can get on with the rest of my day without wondering and obsessing over every little thing (OMG my eye twitched...maybe I'm pregnant ). I feel like I have some kind of power this way and it is easier not to let those stupid tests take over my life.
I think we all know you'll be testing every day no matter what...I hope you are posting lots of BFP pics for Christmas

I had the same thing 3 years ago. I suspected I was prego and waited until the 26th to test. I just didn't want any type of disappointment on Xmas. There was enough going on to keep my mind off of testing.
Thank you peimum for my siggie
