This morning, 14 dpo, my temperature was higher than it has ever been in my year and a half of charting. I peed on a cheapo stick, as per my clinic’s instructions, saw a clean white expanse, and went back to bed. Made the foolish foolish mistake of double-checking the test a half hour later to see a teeny squinty little line. Pea could see it, but was unwilling to call it a positive (as was I).
I bought a pack of FRERs on the way to work, and tried again after a four hour hold. Stark negative, which, thank goodness, is unambiguous.
Now I have to decide if I stop the progesterone tonight, or if I use it for two more nights to ensure timing of next cycle has us back in SF and not in various relative’s houses and airbnb shared houses at a critical point. I think I will, though it might lead to quite a doozy of a period as penance. Thoughts? I’ve been on it for 13 days now already.
