Of course, I use the First Response, hoping that they’ll detect it “sooner” like they claim. Maybe I’ll try those dollar tests next. Thanks for the tip! :)
So, not only am I impatient, I’m also a bit compulsive. Okay, okay… I’m full blown Obsessive Compulsive. Diagnosed, labeled— for a while I was even medicated for it.
I’m also a bit of an amateur doctor. You tell me your ailments and I can diagnose you. I’m pretty good at it too. Once when I was in seventh grade I diagnosed myself with a hernia. My mom asked me if I even knew what a hernia was. Two days later I was not only professionally diagnosed with a hernia, but scheduled for surgery! It’s a gift. Along with being able to hear earthquakes and predict death, I’ve got some killer senses.
In order to figure out if I’m pregnant, I key into these senses. I pay attention to every little twinge or pain. I look at every bloat and blemish.
Here are some of the things I do:
- Every morning I check my CM and position of the Big C
- I take a good, long look at my stomach and pelvic area in the full length mirror to see if I’m bloated.
- Then, I give it a nice hard push to see if I’m tender or crampy in the area.
I usually push on my abdomen lots of times during the day… Maybe even a dozen.
That can’t be good, can it?
Do you have any rituals like this? What do you do?
I think I understand what you’re trying to say…
More importantly, you’ve piqued my interest now! From the style of writing (which is easily changed) and the diction, I have you narrowed down to two people.
I’d love to know who you are, even if it is someday in the future.
Chin up! You’re beautiful, and when it comes time to conceive your bundle of joy (or bundles!) you will be all the more grateful. You never know, you could still be pleasantly surprised this month!
You will have gorgeous kiddies, and will be a fantastic mother.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Wow! My frown is definitely upside down after all the love you ladies have shown me!!!! I’m trying to be patient… but you know how that goes!
I’m even impatient about Mallorie’s impending arrival! I know you are as well!
Come on, Mally! We want to see your adorable face!!!
You’re too kind! You really are!
I hardly ever get questions, let alone anonymous ones!!!
I have a sneaking suspicion who this might be… on the other hand, maybe it’s no one I follow or interact with here.
Most of all, thank you very much for the well wishes. I’m not the type of person who gets into the “deserving” stuff. I think that everyone has a right to have a child… and I just want mine to be on the way soon!
Next time, Anon, tell me who you are?
Gosh, 129 pages is a lot! Especially considering how many phases I’ve gone through on this blog. I wouldn’t put you through that for the world! You’re not nosy!!
My husband and I have been married for 15 months, but together for about four years. We’ve only been TTC for the past three months, with me actively charting and documenting everything for the past two. We’ve talked about children throughout most of our relationship and just feel that now is the right time!
Okay… I’m not quite sure what a print screen is, but I assume it’s like a screen shot which is when you take a picture of something on your dash by dragging the mouse over to select it.
The screenshot then becomes a jpg image on my computer’s desktop.

It’s pretty easy!
You can do it!!
Well, I still don’t have any cramps… and it’s Monday! You’d think by now that I’d have cramps. I usually do. I mean, AF is due to come on Wednesday, WEDNESDAY! I should feel some cramping by now.
What does it all mean? What does it mean, I ask!
What it means is, I want to take as many pregnancy tests as I can and see if they show up positive. Since I promised myself I wouldn’t take another one until Wednesday, it’s going to be hard. Really hard.
I just want to know!
A lot can happen in two days though… we’ll see.
The trick is: NEVER USE MARGARITA MIX. If you do, you’ll go blind. :)
- 1.5 shots tequila (I use Patron silver, but you can do Cuervo or whatever)
- 1.5 shots of Cointreau (orange liquer)
- 1.5 shots of Rose’s lime juice
- 1.5 cups of fresh, sliced strawberries
Put all ingredients in a blender. Turn on low. Mix for two or three minutes or until slushie. If it is liquid-y, add more ice!
Garnish your glass with a sliced strawberry, pour margarita inside.
Drink up! Enjoy!!!
(Sorry for all of you who are pregnant!)
