If I was an impatient person, I’d be testing by now.
Actually, I am impatient (in mostly all things) but when it comes to HPT’s I am not. I like to live blissfully unaware. Why? Because it means more days of being hopeful. That’s some serious psychological bullshit, but it suits me.
Can we talk about symptoms? Because I’ve had many (which started a couple days ago), but the one thing I haven’t factored into the situation is the meds I am still on.
I am taking Crinone Gel and Estrace. I don’t have previous experience with either, so I am afraid any symptoms I have are from the meds, not a pregnancy. I’ve been terribly bloated, and mildly crampy, headachey, and pretty much in biotch mode.
So I guess my previous method of knowing I AM or I AM NOT will not work in this situation.
Which circles me back around to testing.
Waaaaay back in 2002, when I was first cycling I had an internet friend (Hi Natalie!) and we were the ANTI POAS’ers. While our internet buds gleefully started testing on 3dpo, we would literally wait until after AF was scheduled to arrive. Which meant we saved a lot of $$$ on tests. I guess it helped that we had a regular LP (Luteal Phase), because this doesn’t work unless you are consistent.
Anyway… that was a tangent there. My point is, I am considering breaking out some HPT’s over the weekend. Beta day is Monday, and I might wait. Geez, I don’t know. I guess I’ll take it day to day.
I can tell you that if the symptoms disappear, then I will test to put myself out of misery.
I hate this part.
