10dp5dt and struggling

Hi Guys,

I’m 10dp5dt with 2x 5aa embabies and I’m struggling today. My OTD is Monday. My husband and I took the day off for the testing aspect but I don’t know if I can go through with it. Crying as I type because we’ve waited 12 longs years. I was thinking so positively until reality hit me today that it might not go the way we want it AGAIN!!

I have so much going on next week especially with work that I really can’t afford to mentally check out if the result is negative. I’m thinking maybe I should wait until the weekend to test.

Anyone have any advice?

Could you test today or tomorrow to give you more time to process the result? I know that’s really naughty advice.

Otherwise, I personally know I wouldn’t be able to focus on work if I could have tested and didn’t... I find not knowing to be the hardest part.

Yes I would test now on a FRER I know that's naughty but at least you have the weekend to process whatever the result! I really hope you get a BFP! 😘

I would say that you’re safe to test tomorrow. In 5 twws our otd is always 11dp 5dt. I’m not sure why some clinics make you wait longer 🤷🏻‍♀️ Good luck for testing xx

🤞🏼For you.

Would you be able to wait until the weekend? If so, then I think that sounds sensible. I don’t think I would be able to, though. Last time I waited until the day after our official date, so my partner could be with me, and waiting that extra 24 hours was torture. I just don’t think I could’ve waited a full 5 days!

But if you can, then I think it’s a good plan. This and your mental health is more important than work, though. So if you need to check out, or call in sick, then please do!

Is there any point in doing a test early? My clinic told me it would just be negative if you do it before 2 weeks.

By 10dp5dt you should see something on a hpt even if faint. We get tested 9dp5dt via blood test by our clinic xx

Been there done that. By 10dp5dt on my first cycle test was negative and I was heartbroken and by 12dp5dt it was positive but it sadly ended in a miscarriage so I’m inclined not to test earlier than what my clinic says and test later.
