I decided I wouldn’t panic till January 1st.
Then, I decided I wouldn’t panic till December 26th.
Right now, I’ve already entered panic mode.
My period is late. 9 days late to be exact. Which means that it’s been 36 days since my last period, which may mean absolutely nothing since the mini-pill is known to cause irregular periods. Apparently I’m not to worry till I’m 45 days or more late. That would be December 26th.
Clearly, I’m worrying now.
I can’t be pregnant! It’s not something my body, my brain, or my husband would be able to handle right now, if ever (at least in regards to the husband!). If I am pregnant, I would be 4 weeks along apparently and due sometime mid-August. An August baby, just like me. Crap! I can’t deal with this.
I’ve been feeling period symptoms, so I should be okay.. I’ve been feeling them since the 10th… mostly just cramping. Every time I go to the bathroom I expect to have my period, but so far, nothing. I usually hate getting my period, but right this moment, I would give anything for it.
I can’t be pregnant! I can’t! There’s no way!
I’ll keep telling myself that.. I’ll probably not get it until the 25th or 26th exactly, just because now I’m stressing about it.
When I first started writing this on Tuesday, I told myself not to panic… Then Tuesday night I got pretty bad cramps, and I thought, “See, I knew it would be fine.” Now, another day and a bit has passed, and while I’m still hoping it will come anytime now, I’m debating buying a test to reassure myself…
