OTD tomorrow

Hi everyone,

My OTD is tomorrow and I don’t know why but I’m feel petrified. I’m really hoping it’s a BFP but I don’t know I’m just scared to do the test and have it end with disappointment. Any suggestions to help me prepare for either good news or bad? Thanks in advance xx

Hi lovely, I have no suggestions as haven’t got there yet. Mine is Wednesday 7th. I understand how petrified you must be though. Def have something planned for if it goes either way. Something nice if it’s not good news or if it’s good news. I am petrified about the tww being over now...

have you thought about if your going to pee on the stick or in a pot? I know it sounds silly but in a pot would mean you could do more than 1! What test are you using? Who is going to look first- you or partner?

Thank you, you have given me some great suggestions. And I’m definitely going to have my husband check first and will you a pot instead of the stick. I wonder what to plan, maybe plan one of those movie nights at an Everyman theatre of negative and a nice dinner of positive! Thanks again xx

I wish you all the luck in the world hunny. Don’t drink too much tonight so you don’t have to do it at like 3am. And remember whatever happens... you will be a mummy one day! Movie night sounds good to me. Wishing you all the love and luck xxxx

Best of luck for tomorrow! I preferred to have a busy day planned and found it helped when I had bfn (fingers crossed yours will be positive though!). I know some people prefer to have space and time to process it though. Just do whatever feels right for you xx

Thanks! I think keeping busy is a great idea. I wonder if maybe even going to the gym would be a good idea because that helps me de-stress normally

Good luck! It’s natural to feel nervous. I’m sorry that I can’t say anything to make it better. Mine is next week and I have planned a meal out in the evening- if it’s a negative, we are going for steak and cocktails!

Best of luck. There’s no easy way to deal with otd. I’ve always tried to deal with it like ripping off a plaster xx

That’s what my husband said it too! So going to let him find out first, while I hide under the covers in the bedroom... lol Thank you for the good luck wishes!

I find that mindfulness meditation practice really helps. Letting go of control, acceptance, surrender ... Fingers crossed for good news x

My preference is to pee on stick and run and allow the other half to check the test and break the news.

Just make sure you are together.

It’s a 50:50 chance and it is horrible to have to go through. Fingers crossed you get a positive. X

Hey there. I hope that you're doing good. Okay, so you have your OTD tomorrow. Best of luck for that. Secondly, why are you so nervous. I know that testing and then ending up with disappointment is the worst thing ever. Everyone desires for a family. Everyone wants it. A person must consider himself very lucky if he has one. Every woman tries hard to achieve this ultimate goal. She goes through pains and procedures. If infertile, she has to face social problems too. But all of this needs strength and courage. No one really is capable of getting things in their own hand in this regard. So also need to be so strong for this. If you're feeling like there is implantation, then don't feel nervous about it. You should go for your test. You tried hard. No matter what the result will, you just need to know that. And the most important thing, whatever happens, happens for a good reason. So relax. I wish you the best of luck for your OTD. Take care of yourself. Much love.
