Testing too early...because I never learn(3 Posts)
I’ve done it a-bloody-gen because I never learn and now I feel crap 🙄
Why do I do it to myself, please tell me I’m not the only one!
All I want is for my stupid ovary to produce one bloody egg, it’s their job, it’s why I have them, it’s not hard.
Stupid ovaries. Stupid eggs. Stupid ttc.
walks off muttering
I like to use this advice from
In 14 months of TTC I’ve never tested early and I’m pretty chill despite now moving forward with testing and acupuncture. I’ve waited so long to be a mum. Another 2 weeks really doesn’t matter in the grand scheme. I’ll need to wait 9 months to meet my bundle anyways. Xxx
2. Note changes in your body, but be realistic with expectations.
I see it time and time again, women in the two week wait with high expectations. The thing about expectations, they are deeply filled with emotions and when they aren’t met, the floodgates open. This creates a situation in which stress hormones are at a higher level, which is a signal to your body to prevent conception from happening. It is like a siren going off, “Now is not the time to get pregnant, I need to put my focus elsewhere.”
The most common obsessions for women in the two week wait are all about a real lack of patience. Yes, there may be signs of implantation, such as a rising BBT, or some slight spotting, or symptoms of early pregnancy such as nausea, feeling more tired than usual, and cramping, but these symptoms are also very common during the luteal phase, as estrogen drops off, progesterone increases and for some women, PMS kicks in.
Ask these questions of yourself:
How is knowing if I am pregnant sooner than my expected menstruation beneficial to me?
Does noting every slight change in my body during the two week wait make me feel good or does it make me worry about the outcome? Notice how your body feels when you note these changes. Are you holding tension anywhere?
Remember, it is vital to be realistic during your two week wait. Rather than focusing on each little sign, or symptom of pregnancy, focus on nourishing, nurturing and cultivating patience in your life.
