The days

Note all BLM's...I talk about my 2ww in this post.  If this will trigger you, please stop reading here, because I by no means want to make anyone upset or sad.

I HATE the 2ww.  I am 7dpo, and am overanalyzing EVERYTHING.  Face breakout makes me think no.  With all three of my other pregnancies, no face breakouts.  Cramping makes go back and forth.  Heartburn (which I rarely ever have) makes me think maybe.  Upset stomach also makes me think maybe.  Severe moodiness...haven't had that too bad since I was pregnant with Bailey...today, I was mean.  I was angry, and then 2 seconds later...I was sweet as pie.  But all of these can also come with PMS.  It's also things that come with the horrible anxiety that is building within me day after passing day, while waiting for Friday to get here. 

Friday, August 27th...the day for 23 weeks I dreamed of.  The day for the last 16 weeks and 1 day I have dreaded.

Am I allowed to just sleep for the next week?  Please?

The 2ww is horrible!! I hate it every month. When I thought I was pregnant last week I thought, couldn't they just put me in a coma for 9 months? The stress doesn't help anyone and you're going to hear lots of "relax" which is almost impossible. Whenever someone tells me to relax and let things take their course I think that's like telling a gunshot victim "try not to bleed." Ya okay I'll try!!
I really hope this is your month Danae! You deserve it. You are such an incredible mother to Bailey and a wonderful friend. I can't wait to see what amazing things you can do once you have a living baby in your arms to teach and love.

Praying for you. I hate the 2ww. It is 2 weeks of torture. I overanalyze everything during the 2ww too.

I hope that the 27th is gentle on you. I'll be thinking of you and Bailey, as always.

The 2ww is the worst - just the worst! I'm praying that this will be the month for you!

On top of all that stress - I know the 27th is weighing heavily on your mind. Please know I'm thinking of you...
