When we started TTC again, I told myself this time around I wasn't going to get my hopes up. In my life I always set myself up for disappointment, and therefore I made a pact with myself not to do this while TTC this second time around. Well, that's way easier said than done.
I had told myself I wasn't going to get stressed out if 3 or 4 Clomid cycles go by and I'm not pregnant yet. Maybe after 4 cycles I'll let myself start panicking. And I for sure wasn't placing any expectations at all on this very first cycle. Ha! Here I am at 8dpo and I'm already imagining the "what ifs". I swore I'd never be one of those girls that gets all excited over phantom symptoms. Especially now that I know what it really feels like (or doesn't feel like) this early on in a pregnancy. However, with every little twinge I feel in my abdomen I get excited thinking this is it.
So, all I can do is try not to think about it for the next few days and brace myself for a temp drop. I'm going to try really hard to hold out on testing until 12dpo because I think a temp drop would be easier to see than a BFN. But who are we kidding? A temp drop is going to sting just as bad.
