ignorance would be bliss

Try as I might, I just can't stop thinking about the TWW. Thanks to Melissa , I have this nifty visual to help me imagine what's going on and where exactly (sorry it's blurry... not sure how to adjust the resolution on the blog... it's perfectly clear when I simply open the file).

I am trying, really trying, not to misread every twinge, cramp, headache, yawn, and belly-rumble as a sign of pregnancy. At the same time, I am acutely aware of everything going on with my body right now. I want to pinpoint the first moment I feel "pregnant," but I'd love to stop thinking about this. Honestly, I haven't felt anything that could be realistically called a symptom. I don't get noticeably PMS-y, so I don't have any indication that AF is or isn't on her way. I'm flying blind through this TWW and trying to resist the urge to buy pee sticks. I can have a blood test on Monday. That seems so far away.

Dont pee on a stick too soon, it hurts when it comes back negative. I am 12dpo and AF is due tomorrow. Lets hope this is our cycle!! I tested yesterday and sadly BFN but keep telling myself it was early! I would try to wait for test on monday but we all know that is near impossible!! Keeping everything crossed!

Hang in there. This part of the TWW is always the roughest. We'll be here for you either way!
