Thanks Nancy! I actually think that we're not far from each other. I live right off of Novelty Hill.

I have an appt at the gym when DH gets home so I am going to stop at the store on the way down. I promise to let you all know how it turns out. --I am sure that I stressing for nothing!

Bonnie, not to exploit your circumstances but..... this is way more exciting than the Superbowl [;)][:o)]. Real time internet... remember when Raindrop was dilating online as it were?

If you turn out to be pregnant, you can point out to Mr. Analytical that a 3% failure rate for the Pill (a conservative figure, BTW) means a 30% chance of getting pregnant every 10 years; over 25 years of fertile adulthood, that's a 75% chance of at least one unintended pregnancy. Put another way, if there are 100 women on the Pill in your graduating class, 30 of them will have had unintended pregnancies by your 10-year reunion. Good luck!

Well ladies, the results are in. First off, THANKS for all of your support. I took the test w/o telling dh b/c I didn't want to scare him needlessly. ALthough now that I have Carol's input I am armed with my response!!

It turned out "NEGATIVE". Although, I am still late and no sign in sight. I wonder if it is too early to tell or not? I bought a double pack, so if nothing by the end of the weekend, I'll test again.

CATHERINE, I agree with you on the superbowl. Not growing up in north america (neither dh or I) we don't get all the fuss. But, I must admit that we love survivor that starts right after!! Of course, all the cool commercials are fun to watch. (Although, before ds was born, we used to use the opportunity to go to the movies as they'd be empty[;)]).

I'll let you know at the end of the weekend how things stand!

Thanks again for being there for me . . .

I wouldn't exactly stop holding my breath Bonnie.... wait a week and take the test again. Are you on any new meds by any chance? I did once skip a month while on the pill when I was taking INH. I don't know why it happened, I changed over from progesterone only to the combined (was supposed to have done so already at the time) and that solved (in a manner of speaking) the problem.

As for the Superbowl, I'm with you, culturally I was raised on the World Cup. I do love the commercials and after 5 years of living in Boston, I am forced to support the Patriots... "Marry Me Tom Brady"-NOT.

Either way it goes, I'll bet you've gotten some insight into how you are going to feel when you do get/find out that you are pregnant. How did that feel, naked screaming panic or Christmas morning excitement?

I am going to take it again early next week if it still doesn't come. As for the "way I felt". . . I would say it was closer to the "naked screaming panic" than the "christmas morning" feel. I love the analogy!!![:D].

If I knew this early it would be very odd given last time I was nearly 10 weeks by the time I figured it out!

Bonnie, I have to apologise, it wasn't very culturally sensitive of me to go with the Christmas morning analogy. What would you have chosen?

Please, Please, don't apologise. I take ABSOLUTELY NO offense. I can completely understand the x-mas analogy. It makes perfect sense to me.
