12 Two Week Waits

I'm currently in my 12th two-week wait (2ww) and 7 days past ovulation (dpo).

I haven't yet decided if I will use the popular fertility acronyms in my blog or not.

I also can't decide how long to wait to test. I get anxious and want to test, but I'm cheap and only have the internet ones under my bathroom sink, and I know they would be inaccurate this early. I go with the phrase "I won't invest, so I shouldn't test". I know, corney. I'm impatient, but I know it would be a waste to test with the cheapies that will give a false negative so easily. I won't buy, a First Response, Early Response (FRER) due to the cost.

I figure every penny I can save on stupid tests can be put to into doctor's bills in the future...I wonder how long this will last.


  1. Hi Michele,

    Thanks for saying hi on my blog :-)

    I'm a non tester usually - I would test until my period was last since for a few reasons: I'm cheap and I wouldn't trust the test result anyways if I tested early.

    Hope you get a positive soon and have no need to see an RE...esp since they will be so far away for you :-(

  2. I hope like hell you get pregnant soon - otherwise, the longer you're in this TTC journey with a blog, you'll realize the hours of your time that you'll save by using the TTC acronyms. It's fairly ridiculous, but almost necessary!

    BTW, I try to be a non-tester, but it's hard to wait. That being said, after 18 months I'm SO tired of seeing BFNs that it's getting easier to wait.

I do read everyone of them and look forward to hearing what you have to say.
