It's a fine line between crazy and thinking positive


The TWW really is torture. I've made myself crazy during past TWWs and imagined that I really was experiencing pregnancy symptoms. This time around I'm trying not to obsess too much but it's tough. I spent too much time last night searching for the answer to how soon does your body know when it's knocked up. I couldn't find anything before implantation but I would think that there must be some kind of chemical or hormonal change that occurs when fertilization happens. How else would some women be feeling pregnancy symptoms from 1dpo?

I made it through CD27&28 with no sign of blood so everyday now is a bonus in this wacky cycle. It's a fine line between crazy and thinking positive. I'll feel foolish if I get my hopes up because of a few cramps, twinges, yawns or nausea causing odors only to be proven very wrong when that BFP is a no show.

I started to knit a baby blanket today but I can already tell that I'm not going to like it. It's only my third project (the first two being scarfs or is that scarves?) and my first attempt at following a basic pattern.

Good imaginations. ;-)

Hang in there. It truly is torture. Right there with ya!

Yeah, I'm with Dora. I've felt plenty, but never once got a positive HPT. Don't let the symptoms - or the lack thereof - throw you off. I hope 14dpo is here before ya know it! :-)

I logged into your blog to read about your tribulations TTC. It's so frustrating and I feel your pain, going through this myself. I know exactly what you're going through. It's been a crazy month for myself! It's expensive and emotionally draining.
Good luck to you- Vik
