Sorta Pregnant

I’ve been sorta pregnant four times.  Being sorta pregnant sorta sucks.  It’s like you’re late, you test early, you see two lines, you go for a blood test, you’re pregnant, and then it’s JUST KIDDING!  The hcg numbers don’t double.  The outlook is bad.  The numbers come crashing down and you’re back to square one.  It’s a chemical pregnancy. Here are six reasons why being sorta pregnant sorta sucks:

  • You waste AT LEAST $50 bucks on pee sticks every time.  (Far too much money going down my toilet.)
  • You get your hopes up.
  • You might even tell your closest people and then you have to untell them.
  • You stop drinking alcohol.
  • You’re boobs still hurt.
  • You have to do it AGAIN?

Have you ever been sorta pregnant?  They tell me four times is a lot to be sorta pregnant, but I’m sorta on top of things (pun intended.) This definitely happened to our grandmothers, but they never knew it.  They didn’t obsess.  I always seem to end up with a kid in the end, though.  I better go dye my hair, get a keratin treatment, drink some unpasteurized milk at the farm, eat some coldcuts and do some sit-ups.  Hell, I better go crazy this Christmas and and get sorta drunk.

    Amazon sells HPTs fairly cheap. For the same amount you spend at a retailer store you can literally have hundreds of them. I have a few friends who keep HPTs in stock while they’re trying to conceive. My first pregnancy resulted in an early miscarriage on New Year’s Day 2011.

    Dollar tree sells them for….a dollar. And they actually work! Grab a dozen and you can use as many as it takes, and put the $avings towards diapers! ;)

    I’m sorry, Annie. My heartfelt prayers go out to you. It isn’t easy each time. Even though the end result wasn’t happy, the love you have for the wee one is a beautiful gift. I will continue to pray for you as you try to conceive and deliver. Hugs.
