So does anyone else get really anxious before they test?? Today is day 26 and I am thinking of testing either tomorrow or Sunday but I am so scared because I don't want to see a BFN. My progestrone level was a 25.3 this month so I thought I had a good chance but I don't really know. My boobs started getting sore this morning & that usually starts a couple days before AF. Oh Em Gee...I hate this!! Why is it so hard?? And I am scared that with my levels so high that the doc will want to move on to something else. And I don't know what we will be able to afford... Sorry I am just venting! xoxo

I get sooo anxious before I test! When I actually do the test I leave the room while I wait and my heart just races! I am not sure whether I will test early this time or not, my RE scheduled a blood test for the 17th. Also, since I did Ovidrel this time I would hate to get a false positive! We shall see!

Good luck to you, I hope you get your BFP! KUP!

Result: BFN on day 28. So AF is bound to come. By the way, what does BFN stand for? Because in my head, it means "Big F'ing Negative" Oh well, patiently waiting to start AF....

I'm sorry to hear about the BFN. Better luck next round hopefully!

I suppose it could mean that! Lol I think when most people see it they think Big Fat Negative. I believe you can take it to mean whatever you want!

Sorry to hear about your BFN! I tend to think along the lines of your interpretation of the acronym. Big "Fat" Negative just doesn't seem harsh enough!

On to the next cycle! Are you doing Clomid again? Best of luck!

I am starting 4th rd of Clomid @ 100 mgs tomorrow. My husband is finally going to get tested in about a week. I am extremely nervous for this! I know he is too. Please cross your fingers that the results are not horrible. Because I really don't know what I would do..... /

**Also, my period is super light this month. I think due to Clomid. It's weird.

Try not to stress. I was worried about DH, too, when he had his SA. He passed with flying colors. Everything looked normal. That was a huge relief! With me having fertility issues, we didn't need HIM to have problems, too! I'm sure all will go well. You should know really quickly what the results are.

My periods were a bit lighter on Femara and sometimes on Clomid, too. They tended to last longer, too. I start spotting then it's almost a week before AF fully kicks in. Obnoxious.

Hi Lindseymk,
I am starting my 5th round of clomid and my husband is getting tested this week too. So I know exactly how you feel. This not what I thought this process was going to be like and I feel very stressed. I really don't know what I will do if this doesn't work either. UGH!

Well, good to know I am not alone in this boat. Sometimes it feels like no one gets it! I have spent the last 2 years worrying about getting pregnant. Im just ready. Plain ready! I hope your results come back good. Crossing my fingers for the both of us!! xoxo

Thanks msbooknerd! It is nice to know we are not alone and can offer each other supports. I just get so nervous when it is time to have a visit from AF. One good thing was that my DH test came back good but now I feel like it is all my fault. Hope you are doing well!
