About Me

My photo
God has blessed me tremendously with an amazing husband, Doug, and two gorgeous little boys, Gavin and Joey. It has always been a dream of mine to have a large family but God may have other plans. I had a series of 6 consecutive early miscarriages when trying for baby #2. We are currently trying for baby #3 after our 7th miscarriage. I am faithful that God's plan is perfect, even when I am not happy about it. I love comments and meeting new followers so please don't be shy!

My Addiction At Its Finest

I have never shied away from admitting that I am a pee stick addict.  I am.  I pee on stuff.  Lots and lots of stuff.  Today was no different.

This morning I was expecting that my temperature would plummet to my coverline as it has every other cycle at about this time.  When I looked at my thermometer and saw that it hadn't, I was intrigued.  It actually had gone up a little, which I realize means next to nothing to the non-charters out there, but what it told me was that this cycle wasn't over.  Yet.

So what does a pee stick addict do at the first sign of something different in her cycle?  She pees on stuff.  So, using my first pee of the day I took a test.  I didn't expect to see anything.  I went to change Joeys diaper and on my way downstairs I picked up the test so I could examine it while I made breakfast... cause that is the best place for a pee stick to be.  Right next to our breakfast food.

Then... I saw this:
I know.  Nothing to get too ramped up about.  But then about 5 minutes later I saw this on the same test!
Now that I could see!  Even Doug could see it.  But, my heart didn't skip a beat.  I didn't do a happy dance.  I quickly thought about the fact that I should have had a positive test much earlier and with my lack of pregnancy symptoms and a late positive... I'm just not letting my mind go there.

Then I thought about the possibility that I may have ovulated a couple of days later than I thought I did.  If that was the case, then today would be 11 days past ovulation and I would be much more hopeful since Joey first showed on a pregnancy test on 11 days past ovulation.

So, breaking tradition, I skipped my Starbucks this morning, came home and tested again.  My tests were essentially negative.  I used and Answer Early and there was maybe a line if you held it at exactly the right angle, in exactly the right light.  But for 98% of normal, non addicted women, it was negative.

After lunch I wanted to take a hot shower since we are having some crisp fall weather and there is nothing like a long hot... aw who am I kidding?  It was an opportunity to have some quiet uninterrupted time with my pee sticks.  I dipped another Wondfo.

This is what I got.
Uhhhhh  not exactly the result that makes a girl want to go making any announcements.  Then, because I had dipped one of every other test I had in the house, I grabbed an expired digital test.  I think it expired a few months ago but I have never had a reason to use it so today was the day.  In the pee it went.

Again... I am happy that something is evidently going on in my body, but I am just not going to get too dreamy about it.  I know that the P word doesn't always mean baby but it does put me a whole lot closer.

I'll post any updates!
