Two week wait crazies

Nine days past ovulation tonight, and I have to confess I'm now going crazy in the two week wait symptom over analyzing department. Ugh.

Honestly, it is partly because my "symptoms" feel different. My brea.sts are always sore around 10 dpo....but this cycle it started at 7 dpo. However, I started taking progesterone at 1dpo (last cycle I didn't start until 7dpo). So there is a logical explanation, but still....

And then today I have felt like I have an icky stomach off and on. I wouldn't call it nausea, just stomach discomfort. But maybe the logical explanation is that we were out of town and I ate a bunch of junk...?

Or maybe because I want to have symptoms so badly, I psychologically make myself have them.

I told DH that I didn't know if it would be better to just start testing or hold out until Friday. He said, "Just test tonight" (9dpo). He's no help. I think I need to wait, but I don't know if I'll be able to wait all the way until Friday. We'll see.

Tonight at church I just kept praying and telling God that I trust him whatever the outcome of this week's test is.

It's hard...but I say to wait. I tested BFN at 11 dpo, had spotting to boot-then at 14 dpo BFP--but prior to that I had spent 3 days cranky and "miserable" because yet another cycle had failed...

So while this is torture by its self...a false BFN is worse.

Keep the faith!!!

I love your prayer. :)

The 2WW makes me crazy!! I was so irritable this last one I went to see my dr. for more PMS treatment! Ha! You just never know...my symptoms were only the irritability and the breast tenderness.

I think it's best to hold out until at least 12dpo if you can make it. Sometimes I don't know how I got through all the waiting, but tomorrow always comes. I highly recommend activities such as moving watching to take little mental breaks from thinking about things.

Hang in there! The 2WW really is the most maddening part, kudos to you for still trusting God through it all.

Mary said...

I'm neurotic about it and always start testing daily at 9dpo, lol. Everytime I've gotten pregnant I've seen a faint line at 10dpo. Maybe test on Wednesday?

I can't WAIT!!!!!!

Give it to God!!!! Pray and trust him! I didn't have any symptoms except sleepiness and hot flashes. And progesterone is bad it makes you feel sooo blah!! I hope you get a BFP!!!!

I'm praying the same thing- and also feeling similar, too- just "different". I'm praying it isn't the new meds playing tricks on me!!

I'm so glad to hear that I'm not alone. I'm being a crazy over analyzer. Aaahhhh! That's too funny that your DH wanted you to test already. LOL! Praying for you, hang in there!

Courtney said...

Praying for you, girl! I really hope that this is the one!

Leah said...

Praying for you! It's okay to analyze your symptoms. It's wonderful that you have hope! You should have hope! Praying that this is your month. :-D

I'm at 7DPO. MY LP is only 12 days. Only 5 days left!

Good Luck!

I know exactly what you are going through and I *hated* those pee sticks. hated them. I would try to hold off (though I know it's easier said than done).

WantWait&Pray said...

yes...you're getting so close! Praying for you!!!

Tabitha said...

Praying is all we can do...keep it up girl!! I'm praying for you too, and GOD is good and capable of miracles!

It's funny that you mention the sore bb's. Mine usually start the day after I ovulate, but so far I feel nothing. This is my first cycle using prometirum, so I'm just assuming it's because of the meds...

I always tell myself I'm not going to pay attetion to any symptoms, but it never works.

Jess said...

Praying for you guys...hoping the man upstairs blesses you both with the best miracle! I usually wait until 12DPO to test because other than that it is too early and a negative pregnancy test is heartbreaking.

I have definitely driving myself crazy trying to analyze every little symptom! Today I had an aid cover my class so I could run to the bathroom and "check" b/c I was having these weird cramps. AAHHH!!! We're almost there!

Shanny said...

Its so hard not to drive yourself crazy during the 2WW, my fingers are crossed!

addingtothepack said...

I always try to base my testing on when I would believe a negative result (vs. how soon I think I would see a positive result). For me, 10dpo would be too early and I could talk myself into it being "too early" with a negative test. So I wait a few more days.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

It's soooo easy to go crazy in the 2ww! You're doing so good to try to hold off testing as long as you can. Continued prayers for you!
