Countdown to First Beta

Three days until my first beta test (that’s a qualitative hCG test, for those of you not up on fertility jargon). I’m still cruising the fertility boards for information, and I’m completely gobsmacked over the number of women out there who are torturing themselves by using home pregnancy tests during their two week wait. HPTs are notorious for giving both false positives and false negatives this early in pregnancy, and they’re all talking about this fact, but they’re all still taking the damned tests! Waiting is bad enough; why put yourself on a rollercoaster like that as well?
