Phantom Preg Symptoms - Ghost pain in boobs (it seems like they are sore when I'm just sitting here, but then when I actually press on them, which I do, they don't really hurt.)
We have a big weekend ahead of us. Tonight we are going to my parents' house for burgers on the grill (YUM - my dad's burgers on the grill are possibly the best thing ever.) I told my mom weeks ago that I wanted my dad to grill me a burger, and they are finally coming through for me. Huzzah! Then my mom asked if she could keep T over night because they haven't seen him in a couple of weeks, so they need to get their fill. LOL Sure! Sleeping in.... OH, and I remembered this morning that DH has to leave super early on Saturday morning to go to a work thing about an hour and a half away, so I will have the house to myself from the time I wake up until about 10:30. I NEVER get the house to myself. I have to think up something really decadent to do (like paint my toenails in the living room and watch a RomCom while eating ice cream for breakfast or something like that.) LOL
Saturday, after T comes home, it will be just the two of us pretty much all day, so I want to have some fun T and Mommy time. I think that maybe I will take him to the zoo if it's nice, or swimming - indoors, natch- or to the Children's Museum if it's not nice out. Then, if I didn't get my fill of sleeping on Saturday morning, I am totally going to take a nap when he does. I think I must be tired, LOL. I keep fantasizing about different scenarios for sleeping. LOL
Saturday night we are going to DH's best friend's birthday party at a local "hip" bar (I am sooo unhip - I have no idea what I am even going to wear. I don't think I own anything ironic enough) so T is going to DH's parent's house for the evening. And spending the night again. 2 nights in a row away from the house!!!! That is unprecedented! But he loves both of his grandparents and they completely dote on him (he will probably also be eating ice cream for breakfast, lol) so I think he's in for a great time. Sunday we won't be able to sleep in quite as much because we have to go pick up T by 9:30. But still! That is puh-lenty of lazing around for one weekend, right?
So that's it. That's my weekend. And you know what? I want to spend it NOT obsessing over TTC or the 2ww. Banishing those evil little acronyms from my head, until at least Monday, starting.......wait for it......NOW!
Wow! Sounds deeee-lightful!! Enjoy your awesomely relaxing weekend, girl!!
That sounds like an awesome weekend!! I hope all those evil acronyms stay away! TTC sure makes a person crazy! I have only done 1 real 2ww and it was awful

Phantom Pregnancy Symptoms: My bbs hurt! Like, to the point that it kept waking me up last night when I would roll on my side and bump them. That is really unusual for me, I really rarely get any sort of bb tenderness around AF.
And okay, here is my own Crazy Town "numb thumb/blurred vision" symptom. I almost can't type this with a straight face. I have a dark line around my upper lip, like natural lip liner. I KNOW how stupid that sounds, but hear me out. Years ago, I had the same kind of line around my lips. It's not super noticeable - just picture if you had on nude lipliner, but no lipstick. Just slightly darker than the skin color of your actual lips. One time, I was getting my makeup done by a professional make up artist, and she mentioned that the line typically comes from being on birth control pills (which I was on, at the time) (and yes, I get all of my medical advise from make up artists ) Anyway, I've been off of BC pills for many years now, and the line did in fact go away. But, I was looking in the mirror this morning, and I noticed that it looks like it's back. My convoluted thinking is that BC pills work by making your body think that it's pregnant, so if you really were pregnant, couldn't you get the same sorts of lip liner side effects? And yes, I realize that even if I were pregnant, I couldn't be very pregnant at all. But still. How do you explain the line? Sadly, I don't believe I got this line with my other two pregnancies, so it's not a sure thing. But still. Line, plus sore bbs? It's hopeful, right? Right?
PS - My weekend was faboo, and I actually didn't think about TTCing or the 2WW. Or well, not very much anyway.
Symptoms suggesting I'm about to start AF - huge plunge in temp, reduced boob tenderness (they are tender, but not as), lots of CM, tiny little pin points of blood in CM last time I checked.
Weirdly enough, I am actually in a better place than I thought I would be. I really had my hopes up this week because of the boob tenderness and weird lip line. And yes, I am disappointed, but....I'm okay. I'm way better than I have been around AF these last couple of months. I think maybe I'm starting to accept that it will just happen when it happens. Or not. And either way, it's not going to be life or death. It would be nice to have another baby, nice to have one sooner rather than later. But....whatever happens, it's okay.
We got the go ahead from the doctors, so we'll be trying after I get home from my Momma's week out cruise. I would never wish waiting longer on you, but it would be neat to have someone I "know" and already like on my next birth board.
It would be wonderful to share a BB with you. When is your cruise?
I love how it still managed to catch me by surprise. So, last night I had just the tiniest bit of spotting, and then it stopped. This morning, my temp went way back up. So silly me, I thought it was an implantation dip with implantation spotting. Nope, just my body playing more hijinks on me. Oh well.
This month, I want to focus less on TTC, and more on getting healthy. I have missed my last two runs, the last one out of sheer laziness, so I am going to get back on that wagon.
Oh, and I am going to get a massage! I got an online coupon for $25 for a 50 minute massage, so I am all over that. I may even try to get it this week if they have any openings. Perfect. I could totally use a massage.
The 14th through the 21st of May. I've never gotten a massage. Not a real one anyway. Enjoy it, but get back to the running. Does it help take your mind off of things? I ran a lot the first time we were TTC.
