Yup, when I wake up tomorrow (Sunday, 7/28, which it technically is as I write this), I will be cycle day 31 and 12 dpo–well within testing range.
My average cycle, in fact, is 29, so I’m actually “late” already. Of course *I* know my longest are 32 days, so there’s that. Drew even said I could use the $4 one tomorrow! 🙂
As always, my hopes are WAAAAYYYY up. “Don’t Stop Believing!” and I know my God is faithful no matter what!
So many good reasons for it to be +. People are praying, we’re excited, April due date…I’m tired of waiting…
I have felt a bit “off” all week. A little crampy/achy the last couple of day. Gas and bloating. Then the tiniest bit of pink in my CM late tonight…which, pre-AF, is usually brownish and drier. Of course now I’m hoping that was implantation bleeding.
I had pink on day 10 with Andrew and day 11 was beige, so…that’s a good sign, I guess!! I’m a “late implanter!” I’m tall, maybe I have long fallopian tubes!!
Naturally, I am hoping this post is one that I read after the fact and say, “I knew it!!!” But…I’ve felt that way with virtually every cycle. Go figure.
I am thinking that WHEN it is +, I will either 1. say I didn’t take the test or 2. say it was negative THEN surprise EVERYone, Drew and the boys included! I’m dreaming of getting pink and blue balloons and showing up at Mom and Dad’s front door, THEN telling my boys to show up there–and surprising them, too! And then Dad can take some fun pictures to tell everyone else!! 🙂 I am very excited, of course….and hoping, hoping, hoping.
Oh, and….we celebrate 11 years of marriage on August 6th….how cool would it be to celebrate this, too?? 🙂
I may not have shared it here, but when this process of TTC first started (sort of on a whim last October), I had a “vision” of me on my knees (imagine the yoga pose Downward Dog) in the bathroom, praising God. It would have been a total fluke that first month–but the vision has remained. I knew that when I got that + test, I would hit my knees and thank Him immediately.
I thought today, “Hm, I should do that beforehand. Doesn’t He deserve my praise either way??”
So I am going to do that right now, before I go to bed.
So, this is the worst of the worst with the Two Week Wait…and it stinks. But it’s almost over. One more sleep!
Last thing. I love this song for a baby on the way–just ignore the tie to the Twilight stuff and listen to the words!
