Tales from my Ovaries: Relaxing and Waiting

Happy Saturday! For those of you that didn’t read my updated comment on my previous post, Maybe Baby, here it goes…

I posted that entry on Wednesday night and I did call the doctor first thing Thursday morning. I explained what was going on, how I was feeling, my symptoms and about taking way too many home pregnancy tests (HPT). The nurse said it’s very possible I could be pregnant and that my levels just aren’t high enough to be detected yet. She also said there’s a good chance that I just “skipped” a period. WTF.

Momma always told me if you were late you were knocked up. I’m pretty sure she lied to me. She also said that I’d burn in hell if I had premarital sex (which I tested, and I’m burn free!).

The nurse also suggested that I relax… stop taking HPT and just not worry about it. Easier said than done, for sure. She said to call on the 12th if I haven’t started my period and they’d do a blood test and go from there.

In the back of my mind, I can’t stop convincing myself I’m pregnant. We want this so bad and I can’t move on. It’s all I can think about… although I’ve been doing a good job of keeping busy.

Last night I organized the things I have to write reviews for, wrapped a few presents and chatted with my best friend. I lit a candles, turned on some music and tried to relax and not worry about this whole shenanigan. When I get bored and start worrying, I go enter some giveaways. LOL! That keeps me busy and gives me something to concentrate on.

I’m praying that I’m pregnant and can have a wonderful, healthy pregnancy. But until I know for sure, I’m trying to stay calm and relax. My mom says that I need to be patient and not worry… WHAT?! She knows me better than that, I’m the most impatient person ever. She followed up her comment with saying that if I am pregnant, I have nine months to wait so I better get used to it. She’s sweet, ain’t she?!

Oh, and the one thing I’m trying not to do is Google my symptoms. Jesus H. Christ…. by reading those search pages, you’d think I was about to die in 45 minutes. Do not Google your symptoms EVER!

I’ll try to keep y’all updated… and please, pray for me. Thank you, I love your advice and what not.

17 days late… and counting.

    Prayers and hugs coming your way. There is nothing harder than being patient, but nothing more rewarding either. I believe God has a plan for everyone and everything, hopefully His plan coincides with yours.

    It not fun gettin old and the body messing up… i can relate

  3. Prayers sent your way, trust and give it all to God,,,,,

  4. Good luck!!!

  5. I too have been trying again for a baby! It is so disappointing when you find out you’re not pregnant. I am blessed with two girls, but hope for the baby boy :( I have also found out I have Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome, which has caused a lot of problems with conceiving. I pray that you get your baby soon!

  6. Good thoughts being sent your way – wishing you all the best.

  7. Good luck to you, the time will come soon enough

  8. Sending you positive energy and light. May the Goddess bless you with what you want most. Waiting is always so hard.

  9. I hope your symptoms are the result of a pregnancy and nothing else. I agree that Googling symptoms always seems like you are doomed!

  10. sheila askins says:

    praying for ya! and your right never google your symptoms..i did that when my daughter was very sick and all it did was drive me into a deeper depression! Good luck to you!

  11. Tammi Bivans says:

    Thoughts and prayers are being sent your way. I hope that you are pregnant. Good Luck!

  12. Prayers as well as proper diet, regular exercise & adequate sleep helps a lot

  13. Marsha S. says:

    I wish you the best of luck. It’s really hard when you want a baby so badly and it’s not happening. My niece just learned right before Thanksgiving that she is pregnant after trying for more than 2 years. Just keep positive thoughts and try to keep your mind off of it. (easier said than done). Best of luck.

  14. Carol Smith says:

    Oh, the memories this brought back!! Stay positive, what happens – happens for a reason and life goes on. My mom told me that saying more than enough times!! Moms seem to have a way with their sayings! Before you know it you will be repeating these same things to your children! Best of luck to you.

  15. Praying for you. Good luck.

  16. I know a lot of people that tried to get pregnant and most of them stressed out so bad they weren’t relaxed enough. After they stopped trying, that’s when they got pregnant, and I mean pregnant as in one couple had twins and another had triplets. Plus I know some more but you get the idea. My advice? Forget about it. Don’t talk, think or wish about it and enjoy the trying. It will happen and you will be ecstatic!

  17. Tiffany Stufflestreet says:

    I hope you get good news!

  18. Anita Jones says:

    prayers for you and i hope everything works out in your favor. good luck!!

  19. sorry this is driving you crazy. I remember those days so well.

  20. Your mom is right…those nine months are key to getting your head wrapped around the fact that there is a baby to come! I hope you get great news!

  21. Sue Wilson says:

    Prayers going out to you and the hopes you are pregnant. I hope you get your wish. But your mom is correct, you have 9 more months of waiting after you find out you are pregnant. God Bless!

  22. Positive thoughts going your way. I understand the frustration (my daughter is going through this, and has been for the last couple of years). May you get the best Christmas wish, ever.

  23. Good luck, wishing you the best with your journey, hope its great news!

  24. Yes I got a giggle out of Never Google your symptoms. During the spring my adult son was quite ill. We were all on the computer and thought he was dying. He did have a very serious illness but for months I was a basket case and I will never go on the computer again to check symptoms. Good luck to you in the baby dept. It must be very stressful waiting.

  25. Good luck!!! I hope you get your wish :)

  26. charlene k says:

    Prayers and love being sent your way – relax and stay away from the computer, or for that matter – anything high-tech :).

  27. carol donnermeyer says:

    If pregnant is what you wish then I am happy for you. Home Pregnancy tests can be inaccurate so its always better to rely on medical tests. Good Luck.

  28. I pray you get pregnant. I miscarried three before I had Kenny.

  29. I hope you are pregnant :) it is an amazing experience. My advice for you is to stop thinking about getting pregnant, period…don’t worry about it, push it out of your mind (I know you can do it)! My reason for this is one, you can stress yourself out causing yourself to miss a period (yup) and another is you can keep yourself from getting pregnant by worrying about it (stress will make your body not work correctly). I know it sounds silly, but it’s true…

  30. Yeah….everytime I google my symptoms, I have cancer and need to go to the ER immediately! :p I hope you have a happy, healthy baby on the way <3

  31. prayers coming your way!

  32. I honestly hope you are pregnant I know it would mean the world you, best wishes :)

  33. Krista Jones says:

    I remember the days when I’d skip a cycle and I’d hope the HPT showed positive. I knew I would be doing it alone, but I was okay with that, because I’d have this precious thing gracing my life. I hope the 12th gets here and you get a positive!! Good luck!!!

  34. Becky Grayson says:

    I hope you receive a Christmas blessing. I keep checking back to see if there is any update LOL. Keeping you in my thoughts.

  35. Good luck on getting pregnant.

  36. Debbie Moon says:

    Prayers for you. Stay positive, Good luck!

  37. Thanks for sharing. Good luck to you!

  38. Heather Farr says:

    Praying that your prayers are answered soon (I know it is hard to wait for God’s answer to prayers). :-)

  39. Good luck!

  40. Jennifer Mae Hiles says:

    Oh yes, googling symptoms can be traumatizing! I’ve done it too many times. I wish you the best. Not knowing is so frustrating!

  41. Debbie Lappen says:

    My prayers are going out to you! It will happen just stay positive!

  42. I always miss my period if I worry about things to much. Baby dust!!! Hope you are!

  43. Jen5253 Range says:

    I know how hard it is to wait to get an answer, and I hope you get the answer that you are wanting! I’ve also learned not to google my symptoms.

  44. Becky Kuntz says:

    Good luck… I hope your little bundle is on it’s way! God Bless and prayers sent your way!

  45. ellen powell says:


  46. Stephanie Thompson says:

    Hope you have the news you wanted and if not hoping you have your wish soon. The body is a complex thing and can be tricked into believing whatever you convince it to.

  47. Ruth Reynolds says:

    Good luck dear and i know its hard not to try to figure out whats going on but i stopped looking up info because it stressed me out to much Relax dear:)

  48. Jessica Stewart says:

    Oh the woes of not knowing! Sending hope and prayers in your direction!

  49. My prayers are with you. I know all too well what you are going through and sadly I’m past the hope.

  50. nikki krutz says:

    Sending you lots of prayers, having a baby is a great blessing!

  51. Is there an update yet? I never was regular until I had my kids then it was like clockwork. I’m praying that you get your wishes!

  52. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. Pray to him and May he grant you your heart’s wish!

  53. I so hope that you get your very heartfelt wish come true! There are many of us out here praying for a “positive” outcome! Take care!

  54. Wishing you the best and praying for that baby!

  55. Hope and Prayers sent for your wishes to come true! Good luck!

  56. My fiance and I learned to take caution when Googling symptoms because it can make it seem more serious than it is! I definitely know what it’s like waiting to get pregnant seeing as how we have to do it via donors! It’s such a hassle. Keep busy and stay positive! :)

  57. Marissa Poon says:

    Haha I am always late on my period and it freaks out anyone whom I tell the news to. I am a virgin, so no need to freak out :P anyways good luck on your pregnancy!

  58. Michele Koterbski says:

    I had a friend that tried to have children, but couldn’t. They ended up with Invitro and now have 3 beautiful children. I pray that all works out for you, however God may have intended.

  59. Elizabeth Hall says:

    OMG, I read this and thought is this me. My husband and I have been trying for quit a while now and it gets so fustrating, when Im late or getting symptoms and then I google and it could be a millon other things. Keep your head up and I will be praying for you. :)

  60. Amber Miller says:

    Stay positive! Things will get better
