Dec 23

The day before your expected period is a beautiful day filled with hope.

Although you’re quite sure there’s no way you’re pregnant, you actually have a tiny bit of hope left. This is the day where a pregnancy announcement can occur and you actually feel some happiness for them, instead of wanting to slit your wrists. After all, you might be pregnant too. You feel like your period will come any second and you are experiencing all the classic fake pregnancy symptoms. Your left breast seems heavier than usual, your right nipple seems darker, and that headache that you always get before your period hasn’t arrived yet. You may just “know” you’re not pregnant but you secretly have that bit of hope that you are. You may run to the toilet every few minutes to check for redness OR you may avoid the toilet altogether so you won’t see the inevitable. You can always believe that the wetness in your underwear is from leftover urine from a previous restroom trip. Yeah right.

The day of hope feels great and awful all in one. You just want to know but yet you don’t. You want to hold onto hope a few minutes longer.

    I don't even get to have the hope of that day:( The day of my period, my waking temp plunges back down to 97.90 exactly – and like clockwork I get AF that evening. I know I'm not before I even get out of bed that day. I still POAS though, just for the heck of it.

    New to this blog, thanks for the laughs and understanding. I have been reading a while but not posted. This could not describe more perfectly the end of every month. I always think, “this could be our month” and am just let down the next day. So many wasted pg tests.
