I AM Getting My Period on Friday

I'm supposed to get my period the day after tomorrow.

I'm trying to tell myself: I will get my period on Friday. Or maybe Saturday. Or maybe Sunday. It might be late, but it WILL come.

I'm trying to hold myself back from thinking: I've been feeling extra bloated lately, I was unusually tired the other night, I'm feeling a teensy bit nauseated today, hmmm...what if??

Every month, it happens without fail...towards the end of my 2WW, I develop so many pregnancy symptoms that I convince myself this must be my month. And every month, I get my period.

Each month it's something a little different.

Back when we first started trying, I only had the typical symptoms. In April I was bloated. In May I was ravenously hungry. In July I was exhausted beyond belief.

After many months of run-of-the-mill symptoms followed by BFNs, I advanced on to developing more sophisticated symptoms. In January, I had an acute sense of smell and couldn't stand my brother's breath. In March, I had "implantation" spotting combined with nausea. Surely this time it had to be it!

Well, you know it wasn't. :) So this time, I'm telling myself: I AM getting my period on Friday.

It's just that there's a small, teeny tiny voice inside my head that won't be quiet...but haven't you had unusual heartburn this month? And mid-2WW ovulation cramps maybe?

Sigh...well, I guess it ain't over till it's over!

I've been there way too many times to count. I'm looking forward to reading more from you. Prayerfully, there will be much better days ahead without having to wait too much longer for them.
