Rollercoaster of a Weekend

Between Sunday and today, my emotions have been on a wicked rollercoaster ride. Of course, all related to TTC.

Let me preface this with: I've been on a work trip since Sunday. I'm going home in just a little while, which I'm happy about. I don't sleep very well when I'm away from home and Mr. Magnolia Bud, and though my hotel is nice, I'm stressed out about work while I'm away. Now, for the story...

I'm currently 12DPO, on CD27. My longest LP to date (previous longest was 9, yes 9!). As you know, I started testing at 8DPO, with negatives on 8 and 9DPO. At 10DPO, I got a faint line on an internet cheapie, and was thrilled! But I tested again at 11DPO with a FRER, and there was no second line (although still a faint line on another internet cheapie). Tested again this morning, no second line on an Equate test and an EPT test, and I'm out of internet cheapies until I get home later today. My temps are still ridiculously high and possibly triphasic (highest they've ever been in my five cycles charting, and increased again this morning), I'm still having crampy twinges on my left side, I'm bloated more than ever before (seriously, I wore an empire-waisted dress yesterday because I didn't fit into the suit pants I brought on my trip). I also have a backache intermittently, and have been insanely tired. Add creamy CM to the mix (normally a mix of sticky & creamy after O), and I may have the world's most ridiculous phantom symptoms if I'm not pg this cycle.

So...I'm trying to be patient. I went to the beach this morning for a few hours to read and walk on the beach. That helped with the patience a lot, actually.

Here's a story that might give you a laugh: This morning, on my way to the beach, I was out of pg tests. So, what did I do? What any *questionably sane* traveler would do. I PIAC from my hotel room, put a lid on the cup, drove to the Walmart that was on the way to the beach, and bought three boxes of pregnancy tests...and then tested with two brands in the parking lot. Never EVER thought I'd do that!

On that note, I need to get packed up and head for home...the land of plentiful cheap tests. Talk to you all soon!

Good luck!
Also, love the story. Things that may have sounded insane before TTC, not so much during.

There is a brand of HPT that is not expensive and gives excellent results. Its called Answer, and it is about $10 for 2 tests in PA.

Give it a try!

Internet cheapies are the BEST! I would never accept a BFN on a FRER without retesting on a cheapie. Hope you get your BFP!!!

Before I started TTC, I would have thought you were a lunatic...


I think that's a brilliant idea! :)
