I know I said I wasn't testing until tomorrow but I couldn't help it. Let me explain my weakness. I started getting a headache yesterday afternoon. The kind I get about 2 to 3 days before my period starts. I actually still have it today. I also felt some very different kind of twinges in my abdomen yesterday afternoon. It definitely wasn't my ovary as it was lower and more centered. At that point I really didn't know what to think. Many women complain of the twinges and the pains and for a lot of them it really is their uterus working away at sustaining and embryo. I am of the state of mind that those twinges are caused from the extra E2 I'm putting in my body to MAKE my lining thicker than usual so of course I will feel it twinging and pulling, right?
On a whim I stopped in at the drugstore on my walk to work from the bus stop. I bought a cheap store brand 2-pack of tests. The one that is supposed to be as good as the name brand test that can detect a positive up to 5 days before a missed period. I didn't use FMU. I just wanted to put myself out of my misery so that I can get on with my life. So I peed on that stick. And after I washed my hands I picked it up and took a deep breath because I KNEW what I would be seeing....nothing. But that's not quite what I saw.
Please don't send me comments with encouragement to believe this. Please send me level headed, let's wait and see comments, ok? My fragile emotional state will not be able to handle anything else. And I might be the only one seeing this second line anyway. I just checked it again (it's been about an hour since I tested) and it's so light, at 8dp5dt it should be much darker if it's a true positive...I'm sure it's just an evap line or a bad test.
