9dp3dt

I was weak last night. I broke down and forced the hubs to give me back the HPT I had previously told him to hide from me. It took a while, but I finally wore him down and he gave in.

But then I went to peeonastick.com to look up to the sensitivity of my remaining test. Turns out it's not all that sensitive. And the more I looked up the rates of the trigger metabolizing through my system, the more anxious I got that I could still get a false positive. And we all know by now that my metabolism is slower than molasses in January (fun fact for the day: that saying comes from a molasses flood, of sorts, in Boston way way way back when), so it's not like I could really believe that my body metabolized it faster than average.

And that could possibly kill me - to believe falsely, for a few days, that I was pg?!? I'm not strong enough for that.

So I put the HPT in the back of the bathroom cabinet and resolved that waiting for the beta really is what is best. It's Wednesday, by the way.

  3. Oh Wow! I can only imagine how that whole convo went down with dh! "I NEED that test" "But you told me to hide it from you" "I changed my mind, I NEED that test!" All the while he is thinking that there is no right response in this situation. He loses if he doesn't give you test, and he loses if he ends up with a hysterical wife.

    Regardless, I do hope that you can find a few ways to enjoy these few days of presumably being pregnant. Are you listening to your CB? Are your nails done up all pretty? Do you have some flowers in your house? Can you dedicate these few days to taking 100% care of yourself? So much easier said than done, I know :)

    I'll be holding you close in my heart.

  4. Great will power! I swore I wasn't going to test before beta and when I was putting away towels on 7dp5dt, I found a HPT. My will power lasted a whole 2 seconds. The line was SUPER faint which caused me angst. So in hindsight, I do wish that I would have waited. GL!!!!
