Not pregnant, I know it, for sure, and yet, why do I still delude myself!

I'm a tiny bit late. Like a day late. With constant cramping, hormone headaches on and off for the last week, but no blood.
Does everyone else still do this! 6 years, maybe 7, and I've never had a natural bfp (one ivf miracle) and yet I still kid myself.
I know posting this will make the witch arrive. Which is fine, IVF planned again in Jan, but I'm making myself crazy.

I think we all do it. You know rationally that you're been irrational, but there's always that tiny bit of hope...
Good luck for your IVF in January.

I did this for years too. Especially the months immediately before IVF - apparently I thought I was going to miraculously manage to conceive just after I'd booked in a cycle.

Yup, every single bloody month. Even when I get a bfn I convince myself that I might have ovulated late and therefore still in with a chance. I even convinced myself I was pregnant when I was abroad with work over most of the month completely missing fertile days... I'm actually one of the annoying 1 week pre-ivf natural conception stories, so now we're booking ivf again for no.2 (having never actually done ivf the first time), my crazy I'm-convinced-I'm-upduffed mentalism is in overdrive.

Literally every time, due AF any minute now and symtom spotting the same way I did month one TTC. (Almost three years now argh!)
Managed to stop spending money on HPT though, which is progress!

I'm doing it right now - 3 years of TTC and no natural bfp. AF due any day now, yet I never get tired of torturing myself that the sore boobs and cramps (that I get EVERY month) are first signs of a BFP. Wish I could stop myself but just can't!
mistletoeprickles · 05/12/2016 07:45
Yep and I'm doing it right now!
Last clomid cycle I'm allowed, 3 days late and I know I have no signs of pregnancy or period but I'm driving myself nuts!
