Feeling down Wednesday 10 October 2007

This is so much worse than the first time around when we just stopped using condoms. It was only the strange metallic taste and nausea that made me check dates and I did a test as I realised I was a couple of days late. This time, I know when I ovulated, when we did it, what cycle day (CD) it is, what tests are considered ‘good’ for early testing etc etc. This has been the longest 2 weeks ever I swear. I’m driving myself insane with testing (even though it’s probably way too early but I have lots of ultra early tests, and now a First Response Early Result) and reading pregnancy signs into every ache, feeling etc. These are more than likely just pre menstrual symptoms and period will turn up bang on time 14th Oct 😦 What’s really crazy is this is the first bout of ‘trying’ and already I’m feeling down about it and feeling like it’s not happened this month. The month isn’t even out yet!! I guess it happened so easily with our daughter…

Over at the Bounty forums it’s like exquisite torture. Supportive yet also obsessive – I find myself desperate for answers that really no-one can give me. It’s nice to know that I’m not alone though, there are plenty of ladies just like me who are driving themselves crazy with the famous 2ww (two week wait, from ov to due period date). Currently all signs point to a bfn (big fat negative) result, and a most unwelcome period, to go through it all again next month. But, then again, the nausea and odd taste have reared their heads over the last two days, so who knows. I’m definitely going to hold back from testing until Friday, then Sunday or even Monday – obviously no need to if period shows up.
