8 dpo. God the days are ticking by slowly. I still haven’t tested. I’m trying to figure out the best way to be let down if we aren’t pregnant this cycle. Do I want to test early and often and have my hopes gradually diminish as the BFNs keep coming and the chance of false BFNs decreases? Or do I want to have one highly emotional day filled with wine and chocolate when I get my period? What if I am one of those people who gets bleeding while pregnant and I mistake that for my period and drink a bottle of wine to drown my sorrows? That could be dangerous. So I should probably test earlier 😉
I am thankful that I have a consistent 12 day luteal phase, so my two week wait isn’t quite 2 weeks.
I have also been imagining some symptoms. On 5 dpo I had a twinging pain in my uterus area, then today I had some strange, faint cramping. I have also been absolutely ravenous. Easily explainable as gas and being stuck in thanksgiving eating habits, but fun to explain as pregnancy symptoms.
My wife is also feeling better about everything again. I wonder if the tables will ever turn and I will feel cold feet one day… probably when I am 9 months pregnant and I change my mind about wanting to birth a baby.
