9DPO/Day of scheduled massage

Ok, this is a late entry, but hey: better late than never, right?

So, here's the play by play. I wake up at 3am and PIAC and go back to bed. I hear Vince get up at 5:17 to get ready for work. I ignore him and roll over because I can't pee again yet. I sleep and dream and dream and sleep until 9:30 when I fight with myself to get up because I really don't feel like. I don't need to get up and take a shower until like 11. I get up and realize I feel kinda crappy like I'm getting sick. Ugh. I should have stayed in bed. So, once again I PIAC for good measure since I don't have actual FMU. So, now I have 2 cups full of pee and two HPTs. So, I dip the one in one of the cups and use the dropper thingy for the $tree test. I don't pay much attention to which I dip in where because I know it's not going to be positive. I feel like I have in previous months...well, maybe a tad different, but still nothing really screams YOU'RE PG at I got about my business of emptying out the cups and getting rid of them. I get my phone and look at a few things...and then I glance at the tests. I don't believe my that a line? I look at it by the window using sunlight...I put my glasses on...I look again in the bathroom under the light...I put my contacts in...I start to panic. SERIOUSLY? 9DPO? OMG OMG OMG. So, I call Vince freaking out and tell him I think I see a line, what should I do? He suggests I take the test to my moms and see if she can see it since I said she would be the only one I would tell this time around until the u/s. All of this because I decided I wouldn't go for the massage if it was positive...I had my reasons. I text a few of my BFPBs that I know are already awake for work yelling in my

So, I hurry up and get dressed...I didn't even brush my teeth! I call my mom and give her fair warning that I need her to look at something and I'm on my way. So, I run in and ask where everyone is since I don't want anyone else to know. Pop was in the kitchen and Gram and Daddy were still upstairs. So, I show her. She sees something, but am I sure that means something? YES I'M SURE!!! haha. So, I continue to freak out. I call my friend and tell her no massages...she says its ok cause she's broke anyway. We went to lunch instead with my mom, niece and nephew. Always a good time.

When I got home, the $tree test dried very nicely and I could get a pic of the test so I sent it to my BFPBs who confirmed there was a line!! Woot!

So, fast forward to this morning, 10DPO and I wake up as soon as the sun is shining in at 6:30! I decide to use an FRER, a $tree test and an test. The FRER is much darker than the others. The $tree test is pretty easy to see...but the early-preg-test is still extremely faint. I thought they were supposed to all be the same sensitivity, but maybe not.

My symptoms for anyone who's interested: my boobs are not really what I would say is sore...they kinda feel like they feel when I'm really cold. Firm and like my nipples are hard, but they aren't. Pretty strange. They also hurt when I woke up the other day after laying on them all night. I was waking up in the middle of the night to pee for a couple nights...maybe starting at 7DPO, but I didn't think anything of it. I have tiny little cramps, but I usually get that every cycle.

Things we did differently this cycle: we didn't have a sex marathon. I didn't temp, therefore decreasing stress and helping me sleep better. I didn't do everything based on IF I was PG like in previous cycles...I just lived my life. I did some different religious things, including attending a Novena at Saint Rita's who is known to help impossible or difficult situations. I think that's about it. I'm so tired right now I'm not even sure any of this makes sense.
Hopefully I'll have a digital pic to post tomorrow!!!

Here's the pics:
