IPS go away!!

So I made it through the first of the 2WW without thinking about or obsessing over any IPS.  But, here I am today, and I swear I can't ward off the IPS.  I hate this too because every cycle that we have had a chance, I have had IPS and have gotten my hopes up only to crash down with AF's arrival.  So, this cycle, I told myself it would be different.  And last week I did sooooo well.  It was such a calming, peaceful week where I didn't even think that about possibly getting pregnant this month.


But....bam...last night (I'm at 8DPO) I had really vivid dreams.  One about being pregnant, and another about being totally out of control of a robbery-like situation.  My CM has been really milky/lotiony for the past 3 days.  And then to top it all off, I ran into the drug store to buy a couple of things and I walked past a can of mixed nuts and I had to have them.  I hardly ever eat any kind of nuts, but I had to have them!  I opened them up as soon as I got in the car.  Then it hit me..."I just was craving nuts?? Am I nuts or is this IPS??"


So, I have a week to go before testing...I am not going to test early! How do I get these IPS's out of my brain so I won't set myself up for disappointment?

I've never been able to ignore the IPS either....I totally get my hopes up even when I swear I won't.


But I really truly hope it's RPS :)

Thanks---I'm thinking maybe Clomid is playing tricks on my body, it would still be in my system, I think...so maybe that is it.

I took Clomid last month and I was totally convinced I was pregnant....then I got really ticked off when I wasn't.....But you never know....I'm crossing my fingers and sending baby dust your way :)

I think lotiony CM and pg dreams are real pg symptoms. I think you might be pg! Don't want to get your hopes up for nothing, but I have a feeling about you.....GL and KUP and Baby Dust!!!!!!!

Lori-


I'm with Caren on this. I don't want to get your hopes up but the dream is a good preg symptom. I had that dream the night before I got my BFP. :) And vivid dreams too.


Hang in there and KUP! Pulling for you chica!

Hi Lori!

I hope they are RPS! The 2 ww is enough to make you crazy. Try and stay busy, buy a new book, hopefully you will have great weather this weekend and you can get outside and take your mind off things.

FX for RPS!!!
