You Know...

You know you're in the 2ww when...

1. You imagine nausea
2. You are pretty sure your bbs are tender again, as in, they were right after the trigger but then not, but now they are again
3. You see a piece of hair on the shower wall and you think it looks remarkably like a dividing embryo
4. You pick up a book today (that your sister gave you about a month ago) that you have been meaning to read for a while and that you know nothing about, and you are shocked to learn it's about a pregnant woman and you think it is veeeeery interesting you didn't pick it up until now...
5. You catch the last half of "Dinner Impossible" and realize that he's cooking for a picnic for a huge gathering of TWINS, and you are sure this can't be merely a coincidence!!!
6. You have an awful, fitful sleep and you are sure that it's not from the beef stew you ate last night.
7. You are particularly suspicious when you start feeling a little dizzy when standing up after kneeling down to pet your dog.
8. Is that heartburn? You never get heartburn...
9. You have no explanation for the funk/snappy-ness/lack of patience that overtakes you and causes every single thing to go wrong/be complicated, well there IS an explanation you can think of...
10. You wonder if you're extra thirsty or if that's a figment of your mind...

What is your 2ww giveaway? :-D

Isn't it such torture! They really need to find a way to detect pregnancy earlier. I too look for signs everywhere! I think your possible implantation bleeding definitely sounds promising! Hope the rest of the wait goes by fast. (-:

I know I'm in the 2WW when every time I wipe after going to the bathroom, I examine the toilet paper for microscopic drops of blood that might indicate implantation.

Too funny...I definitely start thinking of all the "coincidences" like the book and TV show being about babies! Hope the rest of the 2ww goes quickly for you.

Hillary said...

Haha, most of your list could be on mine! Hang in there...

Andrea said...

Haha! I used to squeeze my bbs all the time to see if they felt more tender. Well duh they did after all that squeezing!!! Month after month, and then of course the month I got pregnant they didn't hurt at all. :-)

i'm sorry the 2ww does these crazy things to TTCers!!! UGH! i can't wait to find out that you aren't having phantom symptoms at all... that they're REAL!

Thankful said...

Ha, ha, ha! I can relate!

JC said...

Lol...I hope your symptoms are for real! I read about your possible implantation post and it sounded very positive to me. Can't wait to find out! =)

Haha, so very true. I hope this time it's for real! Thinking of you!

The only 2ww "symptoms" I had with any pgy were (a) sore boobs . . . which I get anyway with pms so that didn't help; (b) one time implantation spotting at 11 dpo; and (c) 2 times an implantation temperature dip. But I do drive myself crazy with those things that can't be coincidences, too!

Hmm I am going to start deciphering images from hair on the shower wall :P What book are you referring to?!
Keeping you in my prayers!!!Although the Jesus fell off my car rosary so I kind of need a new one :(

Definitely sore bbs and a "heightened sense of smell". And fatigue.
The smell one is always imagined I'm sure, but the other two happen every month, so you'd think I'd learn by now...

This post cracks me up and sadly is SOOO true!! Man those 2ww are rough!

Getting caught up with you today as I've been a bit out of it lately...I'm so sorry about your parents house. My parents had a robbery in August and it was awful for them. I know I'm in the 2ww when I SWEAR I feel implantation and I'm thirsty beyond belief. I just love how we imagine things. I'm hoping that you aren't imagining anything and you get your BFP very soon!

Erica said...

I'm no help at all. I've been pg once and I had absolutely no symptoms until after the 2ww. Then it was sooooore bbs. The nausea didn't start until 6 weeks for me. But, you could add to your list: seeing double lines left by a plane in the sky! I keep thinking about how you saw that! That would get me going!

We were reading coffee grounds, and I was laughing with TH b/c I definitely saw an 8-cell embryo. And, I wasn't even in the TWW yet. ;)

FX!
