At 7 dpo I usually start my symptom spotting, but this cycle I’ve so far experienced none, not even sore boobs (no matter how much I prod them) which is unusual for me at this stage but maybe that in itself is a symptom?? But what is it about 8 dpo that turns me in to a woman possessed?!
I know that it’s far too early for a positive pregnancy test and yet I still have to test. Every cycle’s the same, I tick along nicely then I reach 8 dpo and bam, something goes off in my brain and tells me I MUST test, and it’s never first thing in the morning where there’s a very minute chance it could be positive this early. Oh no, it’s when I get in from work, and even if there was a super slim chance, any of the hormone that would be present would have been flushed out when I went to the loo less than an hour before arriving home! Tonight I stood in the bathroom with the test in my hand, telling myself “don’t be so silly, you know it’ll be negative” as I ripped open the packet which of course meant I had to use it otherwise it’d be a waste.
So here begins the poas frenzy until the witch shows up (please please please don’t let her get me this time), all I can say is thank goodness for eBay and those internet cheapies!
