...much like I have regretted peeing on all pregnancy tests other than one (the one that told me I truly was pregnant). Peeing on those pregnancy tests, except that one time, have all resulted in my period starting approximately 2 minutes later. This is why I haven't peed on a pregnancy test since the positive one 20 months ago.
So here I sit on day 28 of my cycle. And this month just seems different...which makes me get my hopes up. Here's how:
By the way, I'm quite certain I ovulated on day 13 -- didn't do any testing or temping , just general feel of my body.
Typical symptom: I spot for 1 - 1.5 days before starting the full flow.
This month: I've been spotting since Saturday morning. Some brown, some red, but definitely longer than normal, like 2 x 3 times longer than normal. (when I was pregnant I thought I had started my period, but then it promptly stopped and was more like spotting).
Typical symptom: Breast tenderness/soreness -- generally starts on the right boob and moves over to the left.
This month: My left boob is SUPER sore/tender, and my right is just a little bit.
Typical symptom: Annoying headache a day before and during the spotting day.
This month: Annoying headache on day 25, but I attribute that to the massage I had the day before. No headache since -- not even a hint.
Typical symptom: Cramping a day or two before the spotting and through the first day or two of full flow.
This month: Cramping on day 23 - 25, but nothing since.
Typical symptom: Diarrhea (sorry but yes, I am going there) during the cramping period.
This month: Nada but normal regularity and I've had plenty of ... ahem... fiber.
Typical symptom: Crazy desire to cry my eyes out over stupid things (like seeing a dead raccoon on the side of the road) about a day before spotting and during the spotting period.
This month: No crazy desire to cry my eyes out. But I did just have some time away from work and life in general.
Typical symptom: Breaking out like I'm 14 again all over my face. (maybe I exaggerate a little)
This month: Nothing out of the norm.
So the moral of this story is that I am most likely reading too much into this...but a girl can hope, right? At least for 2 minutes.
Update: it was more than 2 minutes....more like 9 hours...damn!!! Here we go again.
GAME OVER...all symptoms and AF arrived today -- oh joy!
