Resistance is futile

I cracked. I peed on a stick.


Waste of a Goddamn gold-and-seed-pearl-encrusted expensive peestick.

Meanwhile, just so we all know exactly what a dill-weed thing to do that was, I’m not 100% sure when I ovulated. I think it was the evening of Wednesday 31st, based on Satsuma pitching a fit, and my fertility chart thinks it was Thursday 1st, due to temperature and *cough* other signs. And H and I had last had sex on Monday, since when H has been knocked flat by the Real Flu (which, incidentally, is still kicking his arse, poor bloody H). So, really, unless H has managed to produce a handful of SAS endurance sperm-squaddies that Monday, peeing on sticks is an exercise in futility.

Period is due either Tuesday (by Satsuma-fit timing) or Wednesday (by chart), and, frankly, dpo 11 or only 10 is a stupidly early time to pee even on an expensive pee-stick.

But H might have produced a mighty squaddie. I might have ovulated Wednesday.

And this Universe might be a smiling and benevolent one.

And I am still a raging dill-weed.

    Ah bugger. The least a negative peestick could do is give you permission to have a big ol’ glass of wine.

    SO not a dill-weed.
    Tesco peesticks, dear. Tesco. You can pee with relative cheapness, and they can virtually see the future.
    I firmly believe in the power of H’s squaddies in general, even if they are not necessarily victorious on this occasion. Those are surely 40lb-rifle and 100-lb backpack little endurance dudes. *wonders if she has been vaguely inappropriate*

    And a glass of wine wouldn’t hurt one little bit.

    You’re not a dill-weed. You’re just full of hope.

    Let’s see, it’s midnight here, and you’re 5? 6? hours ahead of me — it’s morning wine time, then. That ought at least make work less of a struggle. 🙂

    Evil pee sticks. Even so you aren’t a dill-weed. If they are in the house you feel duty bound to use the damn things.

    I vote for smiling and benevolent. Yes. Nodding, nodding, nodding.

    Poor H. Still under the weather? Get well soon, H!
    (Always seems a strange expression – as if it might not have occurred to him that getting well might be an idea…)

    Still, stranger things have happened, it could still prove positive.

    If not, get that large glass of wine, in fact, get yourself a bottle girl.

    One of the more frustrating parts of this whole affair – the testing, and the convincing yourself that the thing is wrong. You’re not the only dill-weed out there…

    Arghhh! You know they say knowledge is power, sometimes ignorance is bliss.

  • Korechronicles

    Not a dill-weed. NONONONONONO! *Shakes head emphatically*

    Hopeful for you and sending H the best get over the Real Flu vibes I can muster. Since I’m only just over it myself, those vibes? They may be a little on the weak side. But with an extra helping of well-meaning-ness.

    But…still standing here with my fingers crossed and my toe tapping impatiently.

    It’s Tuesday. I’m having a period, but I don’t think it’s yours, being very tame and letting me sleep peacefully all day.

    Sending flu-eff-off vibes for H, it’s the season for hayfever, not real fever.
