Twilight Zone

We just dropped into a bottomless pit of complete confusion. Every door out looks the same and not a single one of them has any guarantees.

#1 I have EVERY SINGLE symptom of pregnancy (yes every single one)... except Mr F is sterile and I don't have a lover. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!!!! It turns out vasectomies can naturally reverse themselves (believe it). I've taken two pregnancy tests and they were both negative. I mean seriously? I need this right now like I need a kick in the head.

#2 The job situation just got a lot more complicated. I cannot get into it here, or now. It's basically up to us to decide what we want and what that is worth and what kind of risks and sacrifices we're willing to make. It's not simple. Whatever we do is a gamble at this point. Why is this happening this way? It's really a tough situation for us to pick through and we have to either jump or not and deal with the consequences of either decision. Make sense? No? It doesn't to us either.


So, long story short, I've been a bit preoccupied going to the bathroom 50 times a day for the last 8 days, checking to see if I've gotten my period, to write a menu plan.

Stress. It can make you miss a period. Which causes your body to be all hormonally whacked, thus the pregnancy symptoms (nausea, boobs sore, etc). Call your doc and have them call the lab for a blood test. You'll know 100% by tomorrow if you have it done today.

Good grief--and dont ever say vasectomies can reverse themselves again. EVER. E.V.E.R.!!!! I would die right here on the spot thankyouverymuch if that ever occured here.

((hugs)) on all fronts.

every single symptom except the tests come back negative. That's a big "symptom"! I agree, it could very well be stress. It can make it really really late or miss it. Or it's mother nature f-ing with you, which is also stressful =)

This happened to me a few months ago and Smitty and I are both fixed so it's reeeeeealllly not possible. When I looked back at the time leading up to it I was a ball of stress and then the added "What if" was only making it worse.

Good luck with the job decisions, my thoughts are with you guys.

Mrs Smitty,
" both fixed so it's reeeeeealllly not possible"
heehee... at least it's not just me ;) I've never been late EVER and I wasn't worried about it until it crossed that 7 day threshold. Then I was like "maybe that's why my pants don't fit." Wishful thinking. Turns out I need to commence the diet portion of my plan ASAP ;)

sounds like mr.f's job situation is a lot like what d's is (just wrote about it on my blog) it is a huge risk for us. i am stressed and we don't have kids and won't be moving, so your stress i know is probably beyond high. will be thinking about you guys!!
