Evaporation line

I caved. I couldn't wait any longer. It's 10dpo, 9dp dIUI. It wasn't positive. I left it on the sink and went back to bed for an hour. When I came back the crazy lady who scrutinizes pieces of paper that I urinate on could see something. Not a positive, but I could see where the line was supposed to be. That's an evaporation line. I didn't get those last time. So.... it was too early, I'm thinking. My b00bs hurt a bit less than they did before, but I can still feel a little something. I got an 'implantation dip' with my BBT yesterday (possibly -- who really knows). I had a little cramping yesterday. I swear my imagination goes wild. I had a cramp that I would swear felt like a little tiny speck diving into my uterine lining. I'm insane. This whole thing is making me a crazy person.

So, I give it a 50/50 chance. I used an internet cheapie that Mary Ellen so kindly bestowed upon me. I don't know if that means anything, but it is what it is. I'm not testing again tomorrow, but I will on Thursday.

The commute to the temp job wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. It was only one bus, and only one stop on the second subway line. Takes less than an hour. No big deal at all. And I'm happy to not be home obsessing.

Damn evaporation line keeping hope alive.

I understand completely the head space that you are in right now. My fingers are crossed for you, sweetie!!!

Glad that you found a temp job to help distract you. I know how helpful that can be.

Oh my gosh, the suspense must be driving you nuts. I'm impressed that you're going to wait until Thursday to test again. I'd be peeing on everything I could find.

I'm glad you have something to keep your mind occupied with other things during the day. And I'm still really hopeful for you.

I hope this is it!!! If you want some amusement and more hope, check out my most recent post for the journey of my pee sticks.

Can't wait to see tomorrow's news!

Leah said...

Okay, duh, I didn't mean tomorrow. I meant Thursday!

HOPE!! I have my fingers crossed for you! You deserve this!

Samantha said...

I hope that evaporation line means something good!

megan said...

i'm hoping that's just an early faint positive...fingers crossed for you.

Erin said...

Look at that Leah trying to subconciously convinve you to POAS tomorrow! She's obsessed! You are awfully good to wait, though. I will be crossing my fingers and thinking about you!!

JJ said...

Ugg, what torture...I hope that it comes up REALLY strong the next time=)

Trace said...

Hope...we all have it. I'll be sending you good vibes.

Pee sticks are fucking EVIL, I say.

*HUG* Hang in there. I've got everything crossed.

And frankly... I don't believe in evaporation lines. It's really, REALLY early for a full on positive. But a shadow of a line... well...

Let's just say I'm hopeful. Really, really hopeful.

Hang in there, hon.

I so hope that this is it. I will say though that those tests f*cked with me like crazy last cycle. Not to rain on your parade. I really REALLY want this for you. I hope that the line gets darker.

I hope Serenity is right and there is no such thing as an evap line.

Fingers crossed.

Sarah said...

yep, definitely too early, don't let that lack of more promising line get you down. esp if you just had an implantation dip the other day, it takes a few days after that to start making measurable amounts of hcg. thursday sounds about right. good luck!!

Leah said...

Just wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you as I head off to bed, praying feverishly that you get magical news in the morning!

Nearlydawn said...

Shure hoping it isn't evap. I'm pulling for you!
I'll keep doing the Funky Chicken dance in your honor!!

I'm awake and anxious for results! You're probably sleeping in, though, because I don't think you're working today. I'll try not to fall off the edge of my seat while I wait for you to test. I've got everything crossed for you!
