Pregnancy Test

A Sibylline Dream?

I mentioned in a previous post that on the night connecting January 4th to January 5th, I had a dream wherein my hot doctor told me I was pregnant. I left out of that post a significant component of that dream. This was part of my actual journal entry for Saturday, January 5th, 2013:

I had such a strange dream last night. I dreamed that [hot doctor] . . . somehow managed to do a pregnancy test without telling me–which is weird, because I don’t recall giving him any blood or urine. And he was so delighted and excited to tell me I was pregnant. But I was annoyed with him for doing a test without my permission.

I woke up and the thing that excited me most about the dream was that oneiric hot doctor had told me I was pregnant. I thought about the other part of the dream–the part where he tested for pregnancy without my permission–and thought, “Woman, you crazy. He can’t do a pregnancy test unless you give him blood or urine.” So I put that part of the dream out of my mind and only told people about the part where the doctor told me I was pregnant, especially once I got my first positive pregnancy test at 12 DPO.

My day did not start well. I woke up at 4:30 AM to pee, and decided to use up my last pregnancy test just for giggles. Got a solid positive, not even faint this time, so okay, I guess that much of my day started well, but I had trouble going back to sleep after that, tossing and turning and maybe dozing off a bit until 5:30 AM. I decided to temp early at that point, then looked in horror as the thermometer read 97.78° F, which would be a -.66° F from yesterday. That strikes me as a really steep drop! Still above my coverline, but steep. I scowled and went back to tossing and turning and dozing and temped again at 6:20 AM, closer to my usual time. 98.15° F, still a drop, but not so steep. That might be cheating, but I’m taking it.

Why am I still temping when I have several positive home pregnancy tests? Because I like the feel of a nice, cold thermometer up my cooch at the crack of dawn, obviously. No, I’m just neurotic and if I’m going to be done with Fertility Friend, I want my charts to reflect two 37-day cycles. So I’m temping for 7 more days and then calling it quits.

Well, that was fast


My BFP. 1-9-2013

I woke up last Saturday morning having had a dream about my hot doctor. You’re thinking, “Ooo, sexy!” but really, it wasn’t. He’s never been in my dreams before, despite his adorableness, but this time he was, and I remembered it very vividly. Oneiric hot doctor told me that I was pregnant.

I was only 8 days past ovulation though, and I had no pregnancy tests in the house for use with first morning urine. I bought one at the store that morning and determined to use it the next morning, at 9 dpo. It was a stark negative. Not even the tiniest inkling of a line.

I waited until Wednesday, when I was 12 dpo. Woke up at 4:30 AM needing to pee, so decided to do it then. Upon coming back into the bathroom to look at the test three minutes later, I sighed, initially thinking it was a negative. Then I picked it up and looked at it more carefully.

There was a line. Barely visible, but there.

Big Fat Negative

Negative pregnancy test today and my BBT nosedived from 98.22 all the way down to 97.45! witch must be on the way.

I’m actually happy about the Big Fat Negative (BFN). Being pregnant now would have meant having the baby earlier next year than I had hoped, and I really did want to try the Shettles method of gender swaying.

So, hurry up and get here, witch! And tonight, I’m having a Mike’s Hard Limeade.
