Thoughts while waiting

T and I had a discussion about taking an hpt. He agrees with me that it's a bad idea to test in the morning before I go to work. He thinks it's too early to do it tomorrow (9 dpo). So, I'm not going to test tomorrow. I may test Tuesday after work, when I'll have some time with the result afterward. If I chicken out and don't test one evening this week, I will definitely test before my beta on Friday. I know I will want to know then.

In other news, I still don't really have any symptoms. Well, except for my breakdown tonight. I grilled hamburgers tonight, and they were unusually large and thick hamburgers. I cooked them longer than the smaller hamburgers I usually make. Still, T's burger wasn't cooked in the middle. It must have found a cold spot on the grill. Upon the discovery that his burger wasn't completely cooked, I had a meltdown. I stormed out of the room and started crying. T cooked his hamburger further, and it ended up being fine, but I just had a complete meltdown over this under done hamburger. This is not usual behavior for me. Yes, I get frustrated by things like this, but not usually enough to storm out and cry. I'd normally just swear about it and move on, but not tonight, ladies (and gentlemen?).

Oh, good luck with the POAS!

It is so difficult, isn't it. I mean, all of it. The struggle we go through in our minds is almost as terrible as the ones our bodies go through. I understand why you need to POAS prior to your Beta...I'm the same way. I will be reading and hoping for wonderful news for you this week. You Beta is scheduled on our 11th wedding anniversary!
My insemination (DIUI) will be probably this Wednesday or Thursday. I'll need something positive to focus on...no pressure. ;P

Sorry about the burger breakdown. I'm familiar with those. Leaves you wondering what the heck's wrong.

I understand about needing to test before the beta! I'll be stalking your blog...

I think 9 and 10 dpo is a bit early, unless with a 10 miu test, but even then it would be squinting time.

11 and 12 dpo are more reliable, IME.

And digital tests can say +ve even when the ICs are almost impossible to see!

Good luck

Good luck with the pee sticks. My props to you! I couldn't have held out this long.

Sorry about your breakdown. Hugs.

Hang in there!! I wasn't really having any symptoms until a couple of weeks after my BFP. The ONLY thing that I can look back at and say that was pregnancy hormone induced was a huge meltdown I had at a dinner where someone announced a pregnancy.
