This might be a little TMI for some people…
Since I stopped taking my birth control pills last July, I have been on a 25 day cycle that’s like clockwork. Once or twice its been 26 days, but thats not major. I’m very lucky that I have a short regular cycle. It makes things a lot easier to keep an eye on when one decides to try and get knocked up.
This month, things changed.
Day one of my cycle was supposed to be last Saturday. Nothing happened. No biggie, like I said I’ve had one or two months where I start on day two so I didn’t get too excited.
But when there was still no sign of my period by the middle of day 4, which was Tuesday, and my boobs were feeling a little tender too, I started getting a wee bit excited. So excited that at my urging my darling Glugster and I decided to do a test this morning- Wednesday- instead of waiting till Saturday, which would have made me a week late.
I bought a home pregnancy test months ago to stash, just in case, to err on the side of positivity and all that, and I bought another one yesterday just in case the one I had was expired or something.
I woke up at 3h30. I’m pretty DAMN sure I dreamt about it all last night too, why the hell else would I wake up so early!!?!? I tried to go back to sleep and dozed a little, and then woke Glugs up at 5h00, poor dude.
I decided to use the whole collect-a-sample-and-dip-the-stick rather than take the chance of not being able to pee on it for the required 5 seconds.
And lemme tell you- I was impressed with my own self at the control I have over my pelvic floor muscles!
So I dip the stick for 5 seconds and we wait.
We wait some more.
I even held it up to the light to make sure it wasn’t just really faint.
So we went back to sleep.
When my alarm went off again at 5h45 and I went to wake the knucklehead up, I went to the loo again because that’s my routine, and as true as nuts I was pink!
It’s like some cruel fucking joke. Like telling someone they’ve won a car and when they’re about to leave to fetch the keys you tell them you were joking.
I am so heart sore this morning.
…come play on my rollercoaster…
