2ww Randomness

1 week down, 1 week to hasn't been so bad as far as 2ww go...I'm experiencing the usual flop flopping of, "I think I feel pregnant" to "No way, this is a bust, I feel nothing"...

I bought some pregnancy tests, I didn't use any yet...I'm not ready to give up the not taking the test, I can still blissfully imagine that I am preggers...I bought the tests because they were on sale & thought that must be a sign...

Last weekend was dreadful...not because anything bad was actually nice in that sense, I was house & dog sitting so it felt like I was on a mini vacation...I didn't have to do anything but hang out with the dog, Murphy, a Westie who is an absolute was dreadful because I didn't have much mental stimulation to distract me from thinking about whether I'm pregnant or not...I watched a bunch of movies & read a little, slept a was very relaxing & really was a great weekend but it was nice to get back to work on Monday.

Work has been extremely busy lately & I love it...1st because I love what I do & the people I work with & for & 2nd because it keeps my mind mostly occupied so I'm not obsessing...I can go whole minutes without thinking about it, lol!!

This coming weekend is a busy one (thank god!), I will be quite occupied...Saturday we're having a family BBQ at my house...which is CD25, 10dpiui, 3 days prior to expected AF...the soonest I could test...however, if I get a BFN, that'll ruin my mood for the BBQ & I don't want to do that...that takes me to Sunday, why not test then? Well, I'm taking my aunt to see The Tempest at the Stratford Festival starring Christopher Plummer on Sunday, I don't want to be bummed out for that!! So the very soonest I will test is Monday...

Also, to keep occupied, I am participating in my 1st International Comment Leaving Week...I am really getting a lot more out of it than I could have imagined...reading the inspirational stories of other women & their experiences & successes...even the heartbreaking stories are inspiring because of the unbelievable strength & bravery these women show both in how they deal with their situatons & for sharing it with the world...

Thank you to everyone for stopping by & offering your well wishes...but especially thank you to everyone for sharing these intimate parts of your lives.


  1. Good on you for staying occupied. That is the hardest thing to do. One week down!!

  2. With my first son, the test turned positive immediately. With my second, I NEVER had a positive test at home--so I did not believe them when they said the blood test was positive!

  3. I'm sitting in the middle of my own 2W, and have been flip-flopping just like you. Here's hoping both of us get good news at the end of it!


  4. I'm with you...I'd rather be busy at work during a 2ww. Looks like you have some fun events coming up...enjoy.

  5. Oh, SOOOO jealous of your upcoming theater outing! I bet Christopher Plummer will knock it out of the park...have an amazing weekend!

    BTW, so far my 2WW has turned into a nearly 3WW. I finally caved and went for a blood test today. Results should be back tomorrow, though I don't think I'll stop fretting until I either get a positive or AF. I think it has to be PG, I'm *never* this late.

    Good luck! Hoping to hear some good news soon.

  6. Returning a visit from International Comment Leaving Week!
    When I got pregnant with my daughter, I also didn't want to take a test too early... but I drove past a Rite Aid going out of business, where everything was 40% off (including pregnancy tests)... and took it as a sign!
    I hope it's good luck for you too!

  7. Argh, the 2WW was always the worst. Look on the bright side, nothing you can do right now can make a difference, so just sit back and relax. Best of luck - happy ICLW

  8. I have my fingers crossed for you!!!


  9. If last weekend dragged for you, it sounds like this weekend will fly by! I always struggle with when to test, too. It sounds like this time the decision is made for you - Monday it is. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Sounds like you're keeping yourself nice and busy...always helpful in the 2ww! Glad you're liking your first ICLW experience, you really do get out of it what you put in, it's great!

    Wishing you all the best, hoping for good things on Monday morning!

  11. Pee sticks are the devil. You are so right to wait!
