Today is cd 30. I am 10 dpo. I realize that 10 dpo is a bit early to test. But I've just been so tired this week. And I've had such indigestion/acid reflux. But no sore boobs. No actual nausea (just the acidy hell). Some slight cramping here and there.
So last night my darling husband asked me to test. I pulled out a leftover EPT and waited. And waited. And waited. And nothing appeared. No result line. No control line. I looked at the wrapper. Expiration date: 10/2004. Yes folks, I wasted my precious urine on an EXPIRED test! And when they say it expires in October 2004, they mean it! Don't expect anything from one of those!
This morning, I tested again using a Clear Blue Easy that came free with my OPKs this month. It never seemed to finish testing. Maybe I should have been more awake or had to pee less. It actually LEAKED when I picked it up to look. Went out for the day thinking that it had looked like it was going to start to maybe be positive. Poked my boobs every chance I got (folks, I poked them in IKEA, in Coach, in Burberry, in Neiman Marcus...) and still they weren't tender to the touch (though they have the occasional achy feeling).
When I got home, there was a very faint plus in the now dry test. VERY faint. I don't know that this means anything because of course it's been more than 12 hours since I tested. But I did buy some First Response Early on my way home.
Here's hoping that I hold true to part of my pattern--a positive on the 2nd month of trying. Of course, while that has happened both times previously, I am kind of hoping that that is as close to my previous pattern as I get. I can do without the whole miscarriage part this time, thank you very much.
