losing the battle, winning the war?

I guess I’ll start off by coming right out with it.

I’m two days late.

This probably means nothing. This probably means I didn’t ovulate in October the way I did in both August and September.

I’m symptom free. No nausea. No tender boobs. (neither of which I had last time around)

But there is exhaustion. And constipation. (both of which I had last time around but both of which can be coincidental)

I’m trying to remain as indifferent to this situation as possible. I took an early pregnancy test last wednesday and it came back negative.  Too soon? Maybe.  I purchased some cheapies from the dollar store and will probably take one tomorrow. No clue how it will result. I have a feeling it will be negative if only because that seems to be the way my luck goes with my body.

But if it’s positive….


I just don’t know what I’ll do. I’ll be cautiously optimistic, but I’ve expected such big battles to have children and I have yet to have any battles, other than battles with my own psyche.

I guess I’m just sitting here with my internal battles.

and I’m afraid.

I’m afraid of taking a test and having it be negative, and my period never shows up for another 6 months for no apparent reason.

I’m afraid of taking a test and having it be positive, and being happy and excited and something happens to the pregnancy.

I’m afraid of taking a test and having it be positive, I’m afraid of taking a test and having it be negative.

I’m afraid.

    oh hun, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you and send prayers! Don’t stress about it, just go with the flow. Just take it one day at a time. don’t worry about a thing till you know for sure if you are or are not pregnant. you can cross the other bridges when you get to them. I am rooting for you!

    Hey there! This being my first time, I shall not rush into assumptions but I gotta ask, you trying to have another baby? I am! I’ve been drying for over a year ;( and it makes me angry EVERY month that I’m not. I’ve been a day or two late before and it sucks when the monster appears. Bloohhhyyy. I’m always exhausted though but i’m blaming our new dog and my overly active daughter :p lol I feel ya though. I’m definitely on the same boat as you are. You’re in my prayers doll. I hate taking tests too. When I first got my positive (way before my daughter) my next test and the test after that was negative. I got +, -, -. Son of a… yeah! So, when I finally got pregnant with her I got my + and then six + after that. Talk about pure denial ya? Lol. But I had to make sure. Keep your head up! This might seem hard to do – but don’t think about it for now. Let the days come on it’s on and let this pregnancy just happen if it is which I hope by the end of year at least one of us might be 🙂 a lot of people are preggo. My daughters godparents JUST announced that they’re having a baby a year after their son 😦 mines been 2 years now. Boo hoo. Good luck.

    ps. i’m adding you to my links.

      The husband and I have been talking for quite some time that we’d like to have another child within the next year or so. This month would have been a little earlier than we’d planned but I would never object. I kinda knew that we were timing it right and waiting the 2 weeks to see if I started again was the longest two weeks of my life. Now I’m late and I’m kind of scared to face the reality of it either way. I just need to rip off the bandage and pee on a damn stick.

    Much love to you, lady. I’ll be thinking of you! I think all of your feelings are “normal”- there are good and bad things about everything…especially something as monumental as having a baby! Keep me updated!<3
