Pregnancy Journals – 3 weeks – day 2 – What is the pregnancy waiting game?
What is the pregnancy waiting game? It’s the miserable unknown from the time of ovulation to the glorious day one is able to confirm a pregnancy. I am not quite sure why the experience is so brutal. Potentially it may take weeks to receive results using an at-home pregnancy test. In my experience for most it will seem like an eternity. Unfortunately, I am not immune to these feelings. While yearning for an answer, it feels like time has stopped moving for me too.
I had a bit of spotting today, I have never had spotting before with my previous pregnancies. Is this implantation bleeding? I think I am pregnant, but I wish I could just know for sure. I doubt my feelings daily. I am not one who has ever thought I was (pregnant), when I wasn’t. But again, early pregnancy symptoms feel an awful lot like an impending period.

Why Read Pregnancy Journals?
If you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or just curious about pregnancy, follow my pregnancy journey by reading my Pregnancy Journals. This day-by-day diary expresses my pains, feelings and all the embarrassing moments I am going through as pregnant woman. Yes, there are companies that also provide a day-by-day or week-by-week list of pregnancy info or scientific analysis, which is wonderful, but not sufficient for most. As women, we want to know we are not alone and my pregnancy journals will give you that and more. I am a person that is going through the same adventure you are and have before. The truth is, those other companies are providing you with the same information your doctor or midwife will convey to you during your appointments or calls. During my first pregnancy, my male doctor had no insight regarding real ways to handle certain issues. Example of a topic: Lochia. Yes, your doctor or midwife can tell you technically what is happening, but they don’t give you the best/easiest way to deal with it. How long have women been giving birth and even hospitals haven’t been able to figure it out. I did, here is my article: Don’t be ashamed buy some depends. If you are in need of information from a Mom’s perspective, submit questions through my Ask section. I am excited to share my experiences with you!
