The cramps started yesterday afternoon and are continuing today. Temp up a bit but still pretty sure AF will be arriving tomorrow. I am feeling pretty down right about now. Today is also the day that DH will be telling his mom whether or not he's going to give her money. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that he tells her no.
No AF yet but I have a feeling that date will switch to actually be CD 1 today. Still crampy and actually a bit queasy this morning, with sore boobs. I hate that early pregnancy symptoms are the same as my period-is-coming symptoms because then my brain says, "But maybe you're pregnant...maybe AF isn't going to show up today..." and then AF shows up and I sit in my bedroom and sob uncontrollably for half an hour because I stupidly got my hopes up.
Good news: DH did not give his mother the money. I am really relieved, and proud of him for telling her no. She has had people propping her up and enabling her mental illness for years, and it doesn't help her, she just gets worse. Perhaps hitting rock-bottom will get her to get some help with her hoarding and related behavior disorders.
MID DAY UPDATE: still no sign of AF, cramping is still there but mostly mild. Seriously, would she just poop or get off the pot?!?! LOL!
