    I knew someone who wore maternity clothes for a few months before she truly believed she wasn’t pregnant. But sure enough less than a year later she was pregant and has had 2 since.

  2. I remember every month when we were trying for Cara I was CONVINCED that I was pregnant. Each and every month.

    When “it” (meaning Cara) finally happened, I think I peed on 20 sticks…literally 20.

    I ordered those guys online; they’re cheaper that way. 🙂

    Great post – I think a lot of us go through that. It’s either something we want badly, or, in my case, something that I’m terrified of. The mind can be a cruel thing.

    So true. We’ve been trying for 8 months now and I get false preggo symptoms every time, especially nauseousness. I can’t tell if its that your mind is so strong that it influences your body or whether its just my period setting in. Probably both.

    Anyhow good luck to you. Hopefully one of these months those symptoms will turnout not to be so fake after all!

    Wow…I’ve gone through that soooo many times. Especially the finally taking a test and the period coming on shortly thereafter.

    HATE this! Especially hate it when body takes it to the extreme of skipping menses. GRRRR!

    So far the only symptom my body has not managed to fake, is the sensitive boobs.

    Oh. Honey. I get this WAY worse, now that getting pregnant is even less appealing than boiling my toes in molten lava and having toe-st for dinner. I am mortally afraid (as I’ve said many a time) of ever being with child again, and if I ever have the slightest wave of nausea, I start to panic. Especially since, with the nursing of the 10-month-old, the monthlies aren’t.

    But good luck to the Darings. Get it over with now, so you can recover in time to see Laylee go on her first date.

  8. Wow…and here I thought it was just me!

  9. Liz says:

    totally yes. That’s why I finally decided to never take another test until I was actually late. And I was in total shock when there are actually 2 lines on the stick, and I still kept checking all this week to see if I am actually going to start or not. I can hardly believe this is real, since I have faked my body out so many times before.

    but it’s real. for real.

  10. Veronica says:

    Let’s just say that I had a baby only three-months ago and I’ve already taken two pregnancy tests.

  11. Emily says:

    This is me pretty much every month of my life. For real. I am CONSTANTLY convincing myself I am pregnant.

    Once I even convinced myself that I was SO pregnant that I could feel the baby kick!!! How’s that for crazy?

    After my daughter was born, breastfeeding kept my period at bay for 11 months. Fabulous, yes, but this led to 11 months of “Please God, do not let me be pregnant. Oh my God I am pregnant.”

    My husband has stopped taking me seriously. In fact, I think he’ll only believe I’m pregnant the next time a baby randomly pops out of me.

    My wife went thru it. That’s what made me start looking into the whole prego thing. I thought she was, then the cycle so I’d look into mental disorders. How bad is the psycho disorder? We actually made it to the doctor a few times thinking the test was false negative and she’d be 10 days late, only to have the cycle start just before we arrived and once while waiting in the office.
