If Only You Believe

My period is 3 weeks late. I've been a nervous wreck for 3 long weeks. Every day without a visit from AF is a blessing. I've told one person and she immediately got excited. Something I wanted to feel but have been too afraid to do.

I've been worrying myself, exciting myself, stressing myself, wondering 'what if" for 3 weeks. And today I finally broke the silence in a very inconspicuous sort of way (I pointed to the calendar) and told Mr. h I was late.

I let myself feel and believe in...you know.

Then today I got my period. That's what happens when you believe out loud.

I'm sorry Monica. I really hate the late period thing. Whenever I said it out loud the same thing usually happened. Sucks. Big hugs x x

I am sorry to hear that like all the other ladies on here. I know exactly what you mean though...as soon as you "say it", it's over...a new cycle and new hope begins...

I'm sorry Monica. I, like everyone else has had, would also think that this was "it" after 3 weeks. Sending lots of love your way.
