OK, so my LP is usually 12-13 days without P4, and I'm now 14dpo. I had some cramps yesterday and today, so assumed AF was on the way. I wanted to switch to my CD1-3 Chinese herbs (yes, I'm one of those naughty people who takes herbs while cycling), so thought I'd better POAS (waste of time and money though it is) to make doubly sure. I got the faintest shadow of a line.
This is just what I need. I'm 14dpo and this thing looks like a teeny tiny shadow (and on a HPT that supposedly has a sensitivity of 20mIU, too). It's not even pink. Which tells me that either it's a hoax or I am having a friggin' chemical pg - ugh!! I have not had a single other symptom, not even my trademark signs that have heralded one successful and one chemical pg in the past with eerie similarity. So no, this is not good news (except I suppose that maybe it means we can, in theory, do it on our own).
Will they stop me from cycling??? That's my biggest fear. Or, if it's just like a late AF, will they let me continue? Any experiences with this?????
I am going to POAS tomorrow morning using FMU, then call in for a beta if I am still hallucinating. I need either a blank HPT (well, one line and the rest virginal white), a rapidly plummeting (or very low) beta, or a high and skyrocketing one, nothing in between. I am so freaked out they will make me wait another month because we are travelling next month so I'd have to wait two!! I'll be turning 41 by then! Booohoooooooooooo!!!!
