The “Weather Girls”

I know I’m not the only one who does this, but each month, right around the end of the second week, I obsess about pregnancy “symptoms.” I sift through the same dumb sites over and over, each time hoping (and knowing it will never happen) to find The One SIGN that will let me know two weeks in advance that I’m pregnant. Dumb sites where the forum questions are something like “if i had sex with my boyfreind standing up culd i be pregnat?” Because of course- I WILL FIND WISDOM HERE.


But the symptoms are always the same: sore boobs, aching lower abdomen, fatigue, frequent urination, blahblahblah- all, quite handily, also symptoms of PMS. In other words: NOT HELPFUL.

So I try to talk myself into forgetting about it until at least a day after I should have gotten my period, a feat far easier said than done. I distract myself with work and blog reading and home life. But, in those quiet moments that always come, my boobs still hurt and I still wonder if this time they are forecasting something good.

    I remember that feeling. And then when you do get pregnant, you will just start googling all the BIZARRE symptoms that happen then. Fingers crossed for you.

    Oh, you are SO RIGHT!!! The first time I got pregnant I was positive I wasn’t pregnant because I was 100% sure I had PMS!! The second time I think I spent $100 on every “early detection” test on the market! I can’t stand waiting.
