Are you superstitious at all? I am and I think I'm allowing myself to officially lose my mind.

Ever since 2DPO I've been sleeping like poop. Waking up every two or three hours. The other night I had a dream about having a baby girl far too soon, around 21 weeks. Which in itself is a horrible dream. The cycle I fell pregnant with my 4 year old DD, I had a very similar dream. I've been feeling "different" since CD17, and my lower abdomen feels crampy and bruised, even now. I keep expecting to see AF every time I go to the bathroom.

I was in Target yesterday picking up some things for the master bathroom and stopped by the infant's clothing section and almost bought two outfits! It's been a long time since I bought anything like that and I know better. I don't have a stash of anything other than the blankets and "coming home" outfits for my older children that I kept as keepsakes. I left the store wondering where I'd parked my brain!

Now I'm feverishly (seriously... half way through in just two days) crocheting a blanket. My DH even asked "Are you making that for the baby?" I looked at him and said "Umm... hadn't thought about it. But I'm not pregnant regardless." He just laughed.

Someone find me the CCFCCP Badge of Greatness. I think I've earned it.

Phewf - glad I'm not alone!!!

There's no HPT taking here until at least Sunday. I don't think there's been even time for implantation.

Gretchen would be proud... I don't even have any tests in the house!!

Not really, in fact, this is the least stressed I've been in over a year! It's been so bad that I've woken DH up on accident. I start at the new clinic tomorrow.

Thank you I'm hoping it's a good sign. It may just be a sign that I need therapy.

I am not at all superstitious in life EXCEPT as to pregnancy now, seriously I might be crazy too I am a huge believer that sometimes you just *know* even before theoretically you should be able to (this pregnancy notwithstanding where apparently i was the very pinacle of stupid/clueless) so i'm keeping my fingers crossed hard for you.

Prepare for POAS stalking starting Sunday...

I don't know if you would call it superstitious but I think fate, God or what have you gives you clue or signs. That and that gut instinct. They also say our bodies do know before implantation after fertilization!
FX for you sweetie!!

And good luck tomorrow!!!!

LOL I was reading about EPF immunoassay and I wish there was a lab around here that did it! Apparently in humans, as soon as 48 hours after conception there's a hormone released the can be tested and that can cause symptoms before implantation. Bizarre!!

At any rate.... back to my blanket
