I'll be upfront about this.
I have a VERY addictive personality/genetic code. The majority of my relatives are functioning addicts. Luckily, I've MOSTLY avoided addiction.
I smoked for 10 years - about a pack a day.
I'm slightly obsessive about the house (Bubbs might disagree and cross out the "slightly").
Anyway - I'm currently 8 days past my ovulation date.*
I have blown through 25 cheap pregnancy tests (25 for $8.00).
In the last two days I have blown through $100 in additional pregnancy tests.
Folks, I'd say we have a problem.
The chances of my body even showing signs of being pregnant are like 50% right now.
The chances of my body being ready to get pregnant are even lower (I haven't had a full cycle without my iud yet).
But, I've wasted a TON of money on tests.
And, I truly think I see lines on every single test.
Every single one.
And they aren't there.
We call this an addiction.
I can't stop peeing.
My poor son keeps asking to eat the pregnancy tests I leave everywhere (waiting for the five minutes to be up).
My boobs are tender, I've had cramping on and off for about a week, slight lower back pain, and I'm uncharacteristically understanding and nice.
I haven't had a true cycle since the ONE I had before we conceived T - I've been on birth control pretty much my whole before and after him. So these could also all be per-menstral symptoms (other than the niceness - that's just f-ing weird).
