Faint line at 11dpo

IF Woman: “It’s probably a false positive….”

Strong line at 15dpo
Fertile Woman: Picking names…

Beta #1 comes back great
Fertile Woman: “I’m sure its twins”
IF Woman: “I won’t consider myself pregnant until I see a doubling beta”

Beta doubles

Fertile Woman: Starts shopping for martenity clothes…
IF Woman: “I won’t consider myself pregnant until I’m past the first trimester…”

IF Woman: “I won’t breathe a sigh of relief until my amnio comes back OK….”

End of Second Trimester
Fertile Woman: Has a baby shower

    Thanks for the post, I don’t think I will breath again I have a baby or well that other option. This makes me feel not as ‘crazy’ as I have been feeling with all the doom and gloom.

    HI Girls, how sweet of you to come visit.
    I’m feeling… well, counting down days to u/s. 🙂 Some days I dont think about the pregnancy and some days I just pee on sticks just for sanity. But… well, so far so good. Still pregnant as far as I know. And still hard to believe.

    LOL! This is so incredibly true! And fertile women can’t understand why we get so stressed out. I am sick of being told “to relax” by them!
    Good luck and keep us updated!
