The itch.

Today is 7dp5dt, and I'm itching to take a HPT.  I know, I know.  It's still too early.  I've done ALL of the reading online.  Most sites say 9dpt is long enough to detect HCG, but I frequent the infertility board on thebump and a woman got a BFP on 6dp5dt.  I'm losing my mind.

I have two tests waiting for me underneath the bathroom sink.  They are literally calling my name.  We didn't do a HPT with our fresh cycle last fall because my trigger (lupron) contained HCG and could give me a false positive.  Also, I was too chicken.  This time, though, it was a FET, so my RE said I could test before my beta.  I just don't know.  I keep preparing myself for a negative, but I'm still praying for a positive.

I've also been comparing this cycle to the last one.  I did have cramping during our fresh cycle.  In fact, I remember crying in our bed while Mr. Bossy held me.  I was convinced it hadn't worked and the cramps were AF.  I was obviously wrong.

I have had some mild cramping here and there, but nothing like last time.  I have to continuously reassure myself that it doesn't mean it didn't work.

Do I hold out until Monday for my beta, or do I take a HPT beforehand?

Hi-  My name is Bossy Bud and I'm scared sh*tless.

If you test early and it is negative you will be devastated when it may be positive but was too early. If you wait every day you will be obsessed with every symptom or absence of symptoms. So I would say decide which way will drive you less crazy!! I have done both ways and both drove me crazy!!

From personal experience, 9dpo is your best bet to test... But I do agree with Explorer: whichever way will drive you LESS crazy is the way to go. If you test 9dpo and don't even get a faint line, you can wait 2 days and try again. That takes care of your two tests and your urge to pee on something. Good luck, and keep us posted!!!!!
