6dpt

Today is 6dpt. If you are an IVF'er, you know that means "6 days past transfer". Six days that have not flown by nearly fast enough! However, six days that have basically brought me half way to getting a good report.

I am very proud of myself. I am yet to take an HPT (home pregnancy test). Actually, (I can already hear the gasps in the audience), I have decided not to take an HPT at all this cycle. I had a friend tell me, "I don't need an HPT to give me the positive news that we are already know and are just waiting to have confirmed." So that is my philosophy. Anyways, even I could take an HPT right now, it would be wayyy to early. The earliest I have really heard of people getting BFPs (big fat positives) is about 10dpt, and even then, many women get negative HPTs the day of their positive blood test.

Speaking of HPTs, I have attempted, using my strongly mathematical brain, (Hey! Stop laughing!), to calculate how many HPTs I have taken since we started trying to start a family well over three years ago. Honestly, it has to be somewhere over 100. I really have no way to properly calculate how many I have used or how much money I have spent on these stupid little tests. My friend Bethany told me that her last cycle, she too, was not going to take a test, and then, somehow, one of the little buggers just FELL into her cart in the grocery store. I take that as a warning. I plan to avoid the grocery store altogether.

So now you know what dpt, HPT, and BFP means. You probably, using your brain, also know what BFN means (I'll let you deduce what that means yourself). However, we aren't talking about BFNs in our house at all right now!

Last night, JB continued to provide relaxing entertainment by taking me to a movie. We saw Stranger than Fiction. I don't know the last time I went to a movie on a "school night". This was a very cute movie and was relatively clean for PG-13. We saw Ronnie and the kids there. They were seeing Flushed Away but had debated whether Stranger than Fiction was appropriate for Cole and Hunter. I didn't find too much objectionable content in comparison to other films out there today. I think Hunter definitely could see it. We give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Today I am driving to Kenyon to get my bridesmaid dress fitted for my brother's wedding. Rachel suggested taking it to Kenyon. She said it would be a lot cheaper than Rochester so despite the 40 minute or so drive, I have decided, to trek to Kenyon for the fitting.

Oh, and you know, it's been awhile since we have done any trivia, so I thought, why the heck not. Here it is.

According to the FBI, if a woman is going to get into a fist-fight, this will be the most likely cause...

Gabbi are you up?

flakymn said...

Okay, first of all. Is it cold here? We had 10+ inches of snow last week. In November. :)

As for the other guesses, none are correct.

Finding out that your significant other is cheating on you?? That is a tough one Wendi!

flakymn said...

Incorrect Kristen. Where is Doormark and Gabbi?

Okay a clue. This would nearly always take place outside.

doormark said...

purse snatched?

flakymn said...

No -- there is no crime involved in this. What would people fight about outside?

Hans said...

Someone called them chubby.

By the way, everything is better in Kenyon. The air is cleaner, the kids are smarter, it only rains at night, everyone waves hello.

doormark said...

someone takes your parking space you've been waiting for?

flakymn said...

Well Hans, I think Kenyon may be like that -- but blink and the niceness and four houses are gone.

No, chubby isn't it, but DOORMARK, you win -- the fight would be over PARKING SPACES. :)

Anyone have any good parking space stories?

One time an 80 year old lady stole my parking space. You're right, I punched her square in the face!

Next time she'll think twice before she steals my spot!

P.S. I later found out that the space was a "handicapped" space so I felt bad about hitting her.
Sorry Grandma!

Hey I'm sick, thats why I wasn't around. And I was up, by the way :) getting Grace ready for school. But I just wasn't on the computer.

Gabbi has a great parking lot story and it involves a tire iron!

I also had a spot stolen by an elderly woman. She clearly saw me waiting with my blinker on, proceeded to come up the down aisle and steal the spot! I got even... I wrote down her license plate, and make and color of her car, went into the store and told the customer service desk that she left her lights on...
