So today at work I decided that I was going to hold off on going to the bathroom until i absolutely couldn't to try and test this evening compared to FMU which is the only thing I've done so far. So on my way home from work I bought a pack of 3 CVS brand early pregnancy tests (which I have never used before). After dinner and relaxing for a bit I told my husband I had been holding it in and i was going to go test.
DEFECTIVE TEST! - I have been putting it off because I'm nervouse and finally built up the courage to test again and it was defective where the test line didn't even appear. I am so disappointed but will test in the morning and hope the whole pack isn't bad.
I'm on CD 49 today and that puts me about 10-12 days late with 3 negative tests. Called my doctor at day 45 and she said to call back when I'm about 1 month late wether the tests are negative or positive. I have somewhat irregular cycles so she wants to be sure i didn't just skip a period. I didn't do temping so I'm not sure how to measure If i'm in the middle of a cycle right now and just skipped the period, or late for my period and pregnant! And after all the build up of finally wanting to test, the stupid thing didn't work!!!
A few noteable symptoms as of this past week: definite increased appetite (i'm always hungry, and when i eat, i'm literally hungry in 15 minutes), somewhat tender breasts/nipples, not all the time but sometimes they feel just "different" and somewhat tender, my hair/skin has become sooooo oily in the past week it's disgusting! Also have noticed some blue veins on my bbs which I have seen before but they're much more prominent now, and my nipples have newly developed little like whiteish bumps on the areolas, I've always had bumps around the outside but these are more so on the insides closer to my nipples, something i've never noticed before. I'm an emotional roller coaster and have zero patience lately for almost anything (or other days i'm SO happy for no reason).
I've never missed a period in my life, if it really was just a skipped period, why now when i so badly want to be pregnant????
I keep trying to tell myself to be patient and just wait it out because either way, i'll find out soon enough. But MAN is that easier said than done.
