So, this thread serves a dual purpose:
1) so we all could "meet" everyone who is in the same position we are in (I know there are a few of us, (Elizabeth, DJA, AliMarie -- are we missing anyone? Members sound in here!)
2) so we could find out when everybody plans to start testing! (dpo)
(Or if you already have, when, and what was your result!)
As I posted elsewhere, I was impatient [:I], and tested at 10dpo, and, not surprisingly, got a negative. I just read last night on Fertility Friend that the average number of dpo for a positive test is 13.6. It also says that the average dpo for the first "false" negative test result is 10.3, so I feel slightly reassured (based on their own stats). I'm feeling some symptoms, and I'm pretty sure they're not just because AF could be on her way, as they seem to be lasting too long. The most prominent symptom being this crazy left-sided cramp, which I've had for a week, and is soooo familar from when we conceived Ila.
As of today, I am 11dpo, and I've taken a solemn vow that I won't waste any more tests by testing before Thursday. (Or maybe Wednesday, but no sooner!
How are you all coping?
