4dp3dt

The sun is shinning today, literally. So I feel a little brighter. Not quite hopeful yet, but not so scattered and anxious. Thank you so much to all of you who offered kind words and alcohol. You're the best and know me so well! I've had a deep craving for serious amounts of mind altering chemicals, but alas, they will have to wait. And I love how many different people have stopped by to offer encouragement. And even more I love those of you who stop every time and remind me you are waiting with me. It means a lot. (of course, this is by no means blackmail to keep you around. oh wait, maybe it is.)

I'm trying hard not to go to the dollar store. That's right, no stash of pee sticks in this house. One solitary 5-day early test. Too costly to blow at this early stage. I've been dying to go to the dollar store every day when The Snake is at school. Luckily, today I'm the helping mom in the classroom, so that should keep me away. Cause I know as soon as I buy any, I will not be able to hold back. I'm going to try to wait until 7dp3dt (10dp0), which will also be 12 days after trigger. Puts us at Saturday. Of course, we all know about best laid plans.

I'll try to post about something besides the tortous wait soon. I found all these writing ideas on others blogs that I swore I'd try during the TWW, so maybe I'll tackle one of those tonight.

How can each day seem to last 24 gazillion hours!?

Can't wait to see what writing ideas you tackle.

Thinking happy sticky thoughts for you.

Now sounds like a good time for a DVD marathon...maybe some holiday movies?

Don't pee, don't do it! I've got one precious stick left, the pricey kind, and I refuse to waste it on a BFN... particularly a false BFN so I'm not buying any others until just around my test.

I think your chosen pee-test start date is a wise one.

The waiting is hard. very hard.

Glad the sun is shining today...try to steer clear of the dollar store of at least a few days. I know it's hard! :-)

Don't buy them! Once they're in the house it is too difficult to be strong!

For your amusement... I did mean to say I peed on a OPK. LH and HCG are almost identical in structure (one site explained it as identical twins but HCG has a hat on!)so an OPK will show up a positive HCG result, although a HPT won't show up an LH surge!! I know, I'm a geek but I think it's kind of cool.
Try it out when you get your BFP. Not too long to wait now. Hope you're bearing up ok.

Just stopped by to wish you luck on your upcoming beta. I know the TWW is horrible. Hang in there. I will be praying for positive results!

Its the longest 2 weeks ever, isn't it. The best thing to do is keep busy somehow and try to distract yourself. Wait as long as you can to poas!! The early false negative will drive you nuts.
