The roller coaster continues...

After what we thought was a pretty definite answer yesterday (the digital 'yes'), we wanted to take a second test this morning just to confirm that it was actually a 'yes' (considering what happened last time). Since the test we took yesterday was a digital test, we both figured it was a pretty reliable 'yes' - it's hard to misinterpret a word, especially when you compare it to the faint line we both relied on last time. (And yes, we're both aware that last time may have just been us reading into it to get the answer we wanted).

So this morning rolls around, and Jules takes her second test. We thought that it would be a routine, predictable confirmation of yesterday's result. Unfortunately, when Jules took the test this morning (same digital brand with a simple 'yes' or 'no' result), it came back 'no.'

I have now picked up a new brand of digital tests, and we're planning on testing again (maybe later today, maybe tomorrow) to try and figure out just what the hell is going on. I wonder if it's harder to get a false positive or a false negative?

I'm trying not to get too bummed, and also trying to tamp down any excitement from the positive test (again). Hopefully we'll get another 'yes' on the next test(s), and the 'no' we got this morning will have just been an anomaly. Let the roller coaster continue...
