Frick!

I don’t know what to think. Today is CD 17. This morning I tested, but I accidentally used an OPK instead of an HPT – except I didn’t realize it at the time. So when a light second line appeared, I was so excited. I even woke B up and had him look at it to make sure he saw the line too. While I was getting ready for work (hands shaking from excitement, of course) I noticed that the brand of test was Clear Blue, which is not the brand of HPT tests I had in the house. That is when I realized my error. I started thinking about all the threads on baby center about OPK’s being used as HPT’s, so I thought maybe I was okay. I stopped by the store this morning and bought three different brands of HPT’s – all BFN.

My temperature dropped a little yesterday (from 98.26 to 98.10) so I assumed AF was coming today. My temp this morning was 98.17, which is the only reason I tested - my chart. If AF comes tomorrow I am going to be so disappointed. We are driving to Boston tomorrow to spend Thanksgiving with B’s family. It is going to be hard for me not to think about last year when we were driving to Florida to visit my family while I was miscarrying.

I am thinking about calling the RE’s office and saying I saw a light second line so I can come in for a blood test. Since we will be out of town all week going today will at least give me a concrete answer, right?

Oh man. That is so tough. Your temps are shockingly great looking.... I don't know. I would want a blood test too. I think you should maybe ask, although I don't know how to phrase it....

I hope this turns out to be SO much better than last Thankgiving. I hope you DO get the real BFP.

I'm sorry about the HPT/OPK thing. What a horrid mix-up.

Please keep us/me updated!

BTW, you're tagged. :)

I'm still hoping for a BFP for you! All fingers crossed that this turns out well.

Yes, call them, tell them about the faint second line! Get a beta and post that result before you leave town!

I called this morning and told the nurse that I saw a faint second line (which is true, I just didn't say what type of test!) and they put me through to the lab. Only problem - the lab hasn't called me back yet! I will call back after lunch if I haven't heard from them.

I'm glad you called! Can't wait to hear what the lab has to say.... Good luck, I want this to be IT for you!

I'm still holding out hope for a BFP! I think calling the RE is a great idea as a blood test will be a fairly clear way to tell what the heck is going on. GOOD LUCK!!!

Sending the best of luck over to you! I hope that the lab gets back to you quickly and that your test reveals great results!
