The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

12 DPI… February 7, 2011

Filed under: 2WW,TTC — 2Lesbians&Baby @ 10:35 am

…and dying to test.

I REALLY want to wait until Wednesday at the earliest, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to. I found the below information about how accurate a HPT is based on the DPO.

HPT Accuracy Results Percentages: (Based on a 25mIU sensitive test)
10 dpo : 35%
11 dpo : 51%
12 dpo : 62%
13 dpo : 68%
14 dpo : 74%
15 dpo : 80%
16 dpo : 88%
17 dpo : 92%

I’m up to 62% accurate, but I’m so scared to get a BFN this time.  I was so positive that I was pregnant up until yesterday morning.  I woke up being absolutely sure that I was not pregnant.  I’m not sure why other than my obsession about this whole baby making thing getting to me mentally.  I’ve been having some feelings that could be pregnancy symptoms, but they could also be all in my head.

I just want a baby…and today for whatever reason I’m feeling very defeated in this process.  So the question is, do I test and risk getting a false negative that will just devastate me more or do I not test and give it some more time so it is more accurate when I do test?

    Just remember if you do test and get a BFN that it’s not for sure untill The Red Lady comes a knocking. But if you do test, just wait untill tomorrow morning to do it so you have your timing of day right.

  3. Oh, god I can’t imagine that wait… hang in there…
