Just wondering if you are going to test today. Sending baby dust your way...

BTW, my previous post was such a bad typo, should have said "doesn't show"

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy

Thanks all! Yes, I'm actually starting to feel hopeful now. I have had the very occasional low ab twinge today, but really not much or often and probably I notice it more as I have heightened awareness right now. But it's the end of Sunday, 17 DPO, and I still have had:
NO spotting or the creamy fluid I usually get the day before AF,
NO thermal drop, stayed nice and high this morning,
sore boobs so that I am wearing a sports bra right now, and slept in one last night,
and thirsty so that I have consumed 72oz water thus far today, it's 5.30pm, and I'm still drinking more,
and last but not least, wanting pickled onions... (Honey pointed out that I've also been eating pickled onions for a week, and I don't do this except when pg.)

All of these things are just like my first pregnancy. I know a lot of pregnancies are different, but when I get such similar bodily changes now that are not normal PMS symptoms for me, it really makes me wonder! My doula MIL told me to just wait it out a few more days. Even though it is theoretically late to still get negative pg tests, she said that it could easily be taking longer for this one to become urine detectable without there being something wrong.

I am actually not going to test tomorrow (Monday, 18 DPO). I want to hold out until Tuesday and hope for a clearer read. And if my $ store tests are still running blanks and evap lines by then, I will be making a trip to CVS for a twin pack of FRERs!

Carisma, thanks for clarifying, but I figured that was what you meant and wasn't bothered.
I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,
will be able to separate us from the love of GOD
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38, the Bible
