TTC Over 40 | Day 26 – 10 DPO: Testing Early

According to the 3 apps I use to track my menstrual cycle, ovulation and symptoms throughout my cycle, my period should arrive somewhere between the 12th and the 14th. Before we started trying to conceive (TTC), my cycle was only 25-26 days long, at most. There was the rare 27 day cycle but anything beyond that was pretty much unheard of. It’s interesting how things change. Of course, with me being 44 years old, it could have to do with my “biological clock” slowing down but I doubt it.

Anyway, I woke up this morning and took an internet cheapie (IC) pregnancy test, which was stark white negative. Granted, I didn’t get a positive on any test until 11 DPO for both of my chemical pregnancies, I was really, really praying for a positive this morning. For some reason I think that the earlier I can get a positive, the more viable our pregnancy will be. Seeing the negative wasn’t disappointing so much as it was distracting. Now, I’m going to have to work a little harder to stay focused on relaxing and having some fun today as I wait for tomorrow morning to arrive and I can test again.

Delayed but not denied! It is not up to us when we will fall pregnant but it is totally our decision to stay faithful, stay prayed up and believe in the His promises. I know when we are pregnant again we will carry our baby to term. I believe that with all our heart. When we get pregnant is up to God, though. I’m okay with that. Distracted, not disappointed. Delayed, not denied. He is SO GOOD!
