To POAS or to not POAS, that is the question.

I bought a couple of hpt's today.  Should I POAS or not?  I just don't know.  

My cramping is all but gone(ish).  I have had an uncomfortable tummy since egg retrieval, so I can't really tell what is going on from that aspect.  My tummy is still a bit uncomfortable, but not as bad as it was (at times) yesterday.  But then, that would be pretty normal for AF.  I have had minor back pain today, but nothing like I would usually get.  Or am I just telling myself that?

My 'period' is very light.  I had next to no bleeding over night.  Today I have bright red blood, but not the huge amounts I usually have (sorry, TMI, but I'm trying to keep a reference for future use), but definitely more than mere spotting.  Is it the progesterone that is preventing a heavier bleed?  Should I have stopped bleeding now, if it was all ok?  I have to say I HATE going to the toilet today, it's all 'Has it stopped?  Is it heavier?  Arghhhh!  

I wish I had kept the blood test for tomorrow, but what the heck, it's only one more day.  I have a feeling that I will POAS today, really, with all the questions I have I don't see that it will hurt.  Regardless of the outcome, I will still have the BT on Monday, and it may make me stop obsessing quite so much.

TJL is pretty 'gutted' about the whole thing, which makes me feel worse, but he is such a loving guy, I am one lucky woman!

And when I think about it all, my life is pretty fantastic, whatever the result I have a wonderful life and we are really blessed.

Edited:  I pee'd, it's negative, one final confirmation to go, and life goes on :-)

I really hope Monday brings great results. I don't know if you should POAS or not to be honest but I'll be intrigued to here how it goes when you do. Thanks for your comments on my blog too. Yep Kiwi men are sometimes pigheads for sure. He's home now and wasn't actually as bad as I expected him to be, he had a great time, never mind the party waiting for him lol. Oh water under the bridge and all that.
Good luck!!!

I would have done it too in your situation. Sorry it confirmed your earlier suspicions. This is no fun.
