Today I put my continued hopes and dreams into a third cycle, which I will likely start sometime today. Remember the phantom pregnancy symptoms I had last cycle? I had some again this month.
This cycle’s phantom symptoms included having to get up to pee in the middle of the night or immediately upon waking, and a keen sense of smell. One day while in a deliciously rose-scented bubble bath, I smelled the garlic browning for hubby’s vodka sauce through two closed doors and thought that surely it meant I had conceived and my senses were heightened. But I had simultaneous premenstrual symptoms too: slight cramping and heightened emotions, which this morning left me in tears over some frustrations I’m having with a website I’m creating to sell our place.
The early response test I took Monday morning told us “no,” and my body is telling me “no” too.
Here’s to a new cycle, a new day, a new time to try.
