Tick tock tick tock. Is it Friday yet?

I think the 2ww was way easier than this, not that I’d go back there for anything. Time is passing by sooooo slooooowly.

For some reason it was even easier for me to be really positive during the 2ww. The Circle + Bloom meditations helped a lot, and I spent a lot of time breathing in positivity and exhaling negativity. But now I’m just in this weird limbo land. I did buy the pregnancy series from Circle + Bloom as well and it is comforting. I’m finding it hard to describe how I feel right now. It’s not like I’m exactly worried, I’m more floating around in this space between knowing in my heart and seeing and believing with my eyes. I know we might not see a heartbeat on Friday at 6w, but I just hope we see more than an empty sac like last time. I want something in my sac! Is that too much to ask for?!

My bloating has subsided a bit which of course makes me nervous even though I know this can come and go and things are still likely fine. And some of you have already reassured me that this is in fact fine and the same thing happened to you and you are happily pregnant. Other than being thirsty and hungry, everything seems pretty normal except for my increased irritability. (I’ve kinda been being a bitch at work.) The dark line on my pee stickย this weekend helped ease my mind a bit, but why didn’t it last longer than the weekend?! Friday still seems miles away.

At least it’s finally hump day!

  1. I wish it was friday! I have been wondering and worrying myself. Good luck!

  2. 2 days, sweetie, 2 days. I still have bloating that comes and goes, so I look bigger some days than others, LOL. And btw, you want something in your sac???? Lmao. I know you didn’t mean that in a dirty way, but what can I say, I am in the gutter. And I wish I had known C&B had a pregnancy series!

    Can’t wait to see your u/s pics!

  3. Hang in there!! I know Friday seems like forever, but it’ll be here soon. Just take deep breaths and think big positive thoughts!

    Oh, and you need to post right after your appt!!

  4. Oh my, 2 more days and I am sure you’ll get great news! (maybe 2 great news?) I went in at 5w6d and while the technician was trying to point at something she called heartbeat, I could not quite see it on that black&white screen. It was clear at 6w3d though. Good luck and we’re all thinking of you.

  5. Hey pregnant lady!! I am meeting with SIRM tomorrow and see what they think.

  6. Keep breathing! You’re almost there! I can’t wait to hear all about the heartbeat and the awesome ultrasound! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I know it seems miles away, but it’s really almost here! I hope you get to see a heartbeat too, so you won’t have to endure another long wait for that, but I guess there will always be a wait for the next appointment.
    Do you like the C+B Pregnancy series? I was worried that I wouldn’t feel I got my money’s worth. Is it really only 3 sessions, one for each trimester?

  8. it’s almost friday! I can’t wait to hear the good news about your ultrasound. Keep breathing deeply, you’re doing great! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Well, since I’ve been right all along (:-)), I’m guessing that you’re going to see stuff in TWO of your sacs! Being thirsty and hungry are GOOD signs. I can’t wait to read your post on Friday!!!!!
