Blah. I feel so bummed today. I was overly anxious and took and a digital preg test. Of course it came up negative. AF is due on the 8th. I'm 7 days out. I've had all the symptoms. Today is don't feel much of anything except sore BBs. I have a doctor appointment at 1145 to request a blood test. Sigh. Trying to keep upbeat.
I spent a lot of time in a serious funk today. Then after doing some research I determined that it may still be too early to be detectable on a blood test depending on how long it took for the potential bebe to implant.
Another thing that happened today: My husband hasn't been extremely vocal about his excitement about a potential pregnancy. Correction. He is excited and likes talking about names but I can tell he doesn't want to get his hopes up so he doesn't focus on it constantly like I do.
Today he informed me that he feels like he's on a roller coaster. This will be his first biological child and I didn't realize how deeply he wanted us to be pregnant. So now I feel terrible talking about my "I'm totally pregnant" symptoms. It's crazy how much better guys are able to keep these emotions in.
I assured him that there is still a small chance, but that we will try really hard next month if not.
The blood testing is too early!!! I know you are excited and anxious but testing so soon even with symptoms , is gonna cause you to lose it all together!!!! Just be as patient as you can, because being in a funk isnt gonna help your self esteem at all hun. CHEER UP!!! as long as you are doing the best you can TTC, then thats good enuff!
With the hubbie, I think that it is great that hes excited and that you are letting him know your symptoms and such as they happen BUT over sharing, and then getting not so happy news can of course lead to dissapointment.
I dont share any of my "symptoms " with hubbie...as to where we dont even talk about the potential of having a baby until fertile window opens up....its just alot of stress to put on you both!
What i did to make myself happy is i ordered some onsies online , with my hubbies fav bball team on it, and when that special month comes im going to give it to him as a gift and such..they are on their way in the mail!!!
so even if this is my month, i plan to tell him it came back negative and lie until i get a ultrasound pic and wrap it up with the onsies.
JUST TRY NOT TO WORRY!!!!
either AF comes....or she doesnt.
I havent had many symptoms..i ordered chinese and halfway into the meal i didnt want any of it and i LOVE chinese.... i had some mild cramping low in the belly but thats aBout it...im not going to assume anything since im only 2dpo
I thought about it, and the blood they used for the blood test was 11 days out from when AF should arrive. I think there's a legitimate chance that it definitely could have been too early.
I have to say that I really appreciate your kind words. I read them this morning at about 540 in the morning and it really set a more positive and optimistic mood for my entire day. Which was good - because I ended up working almost 12 hours today
That is SUCH a good idea! Your Hubby will love it!
I told you how I'm always watching pregnancy announcement videos and what not - Well, occasionally I make my husband watch them because they are just so dang cute. Sooooo.... I've decided to make a video but not record my face - until the end announcing the positive pregnancy. And just act like it's another random video on youtube. Tahhh daa! Nope, it's your baby hubs!
I think another reason that I was so stressed out is that my job requires a certain level of physical fitness and I have a physical fitness test next weekend. I haven't worked out in almost a month! And I'm pretty positive that I'll fail that test next weekend - BUT, if we had a positive pregnancy then I'd get out of it without question. I don't want to take the test and risk a miscarriage either. So I think that's been a lot of the reason why I've been so stressed out.
I've come to terms with this. I'm perfectly okay with whatever the result may be - as long as I know without doubt by next weekend (which is also when AF should arrive)
Im sooooo glad that i could help you feel better! thats what these groups are all about ! Positive vibes and healthy encouragement....trust me, TTC is not easy and we both know that so staying upbeat and manifesting amazing vibes will help , if even for 24 hours.
Working long hours and having obligations at work do NOT make this process any easier hun, just gotta take each day as they happen and let go of the things that are out of your control all together. Thats something Im working on too...considering im the WORST type A ..ever.
FREAKING LOVE the youtube re-enactment idea! He will have nO IDEA and it will play right into your already routine of showing him vids that he will think its just another happy chick! lol
11 days until AF is def a long ways out in TWW land...just keep yourself distracted! read a book! see a movie, pick up a craft GO SHOPPING!!!
and NOPE only ppl that know we are TTC are my BFFs, and the mother of my niece. She is turning 1 in May and i told her that we are working on a little cuzzo for my niece. I havent told my family because i ALREADY KNOW they would become for obsessed than I am and ask me weekly if we are expecting...so it will be a surprise for 90% of my family and friends
Hip hip hooray! You must promise to let me know how your hubby reacts when you surprise him! I picked up a onesie that says "Made in Pennsylvania", and oh my goodness - I forgot how tiny newborns are! Squee. I can't wait to schnuggle with him/her.
I've been looking up DIY cheap crafts and I found some really cute videos of things you can make from Dollar General! I really want to go pick up the stuff because these are extremely cute.
