After posting yesterday, I read a post from Belle and it really made me want to POAS. I mean, it was an urge like no other. At 3.75dp5dt – I just had to do it. (How crazy is that?)
Once the deed was done (third pee of the day – after only 2 hours of build-up time), I felt instantly better. All my tension had been released. Even before seeing the control line, I felt GOOD. I could move on with my day.
After 3 minutes, I checked that little test and I thought I saw a shadow of a line – but I’m a veteran – I know where those lines are supposed to be. My eyes were probably putting that second line there. So I assumed it was a “crazy lady line” and moved on with my day. It was so crazy that I told myself I would not even show it to B, because it’s not really there and he’ll think I’m… CRAZY.
I swore to SRB that I wouldn’t POAS again until this morning.
And then I headed to Tar.get for more tests because I was clean out and I wanted to be prepared for today with FMU and a batch of tests (of course, right?).
I texted my “bad influence” friend who always encourages me to test early. 😉 (K – I love you!) I told her about my crazy line and she asked if I’d test later that night. No – I’ll wait. She said to test. I knew she would say that – and that may be why I texted her in the first place.
The evening came and I was feeling great – didn’t even mention my crazy (non-existent) line to B. No problem.
But then, as Matthew was being all cute and loving – I felt like I was cheating on him thinking about the possibility of Baby #2. And just like that, I had to POAS again. I had just used the bathroom an hour earlier, and didn’t even need to really pee – I just had to POAS. I quietly excused myself (I slow-ran down the hallway = PATHETIC!).
I returned with stick in hand – there was a line. I saw it, B saw it, it shows up on photos. At 4.3dp5dt (we transferred at 2:30 PM on Friday), I had my definitive BFP! I then showed B the “crazy lady” test from earlier in the morning (3.75dp5dt) and he saw it rather easily. I knew ALL day that I was pregnant – but I didn’t let myself really KNOW IT!
Of course I tested this morning and the line is even darker. 5dp5dt (I am no longer splitting hairs and saying 4.7dp5dt – OK – that’s the last one, I promise!) and I have a BFP. It has never happened this early!
I know it’s early – we’ve been here before. As B said last night, we are tentative until we hear the number from the doctor. But this is a great start!
For now – the FET worked. That is all I need – to know that it works – that it can work – even for US!
