A watched pot

It never rings apparently.

Or a watched telephone never boils, or something.

Still, nothing.

No period.
No positive.
No nothing.

We sit, and we wait.
We sit, and wait, and scratch, and itch, and sit, and look, and wait, and fiddle, and sit, and surf, and read, and look, and sit.

We wait.

If a kid does end up having been conceived this month, I'm going to kick it's arse next January.

If it doesn't, we'll sit, and wait, and scratch, and itch, and sit, and look, and wait, and fiddle, and sit, and surf, and read, and look, and sit.

I'm nearly convinced that waiting is one of the worst things ever. Waiting for anything, let alone something so important. It's so tense and nerve wracking. Waiting is such bullshit. I hate it.

Roth Family Adventures said...

The anticipation is overwhelming. But all you could really do is what you're doing. Perhaps some more practice at conceiving will take your mind off the wait? It works for me.

Kori said...

once again, no words. Really. Just my good thoughts, and yes, jerk, I DO pray, hard as that may be to believe! :)

Twenty Four At Heart said...

Found your site from the DGM list not to mention your self-promoting comments on other links. :) I like your site - I'll be back. Best of luck with the waiting ....

okay, I'm de-lurking here...
I hope I'm in the same predicament as you are, in about three days. It's great to read about the IF journey from a guy's perspective - I have yet to share your letter to Spencer with my husband, but I know he'll get a kick out of it.

**cheers** Here's hoping you don't get what you're looking for!

Jenni said...

Lance said...

You are KILLING me. Go out and do something and then TELL us IMMEDIATELY if we are uncles and aunts. I mean IMMEDIATELY!

Betttina said...

I hope your waiting is for something.

pee on a stick preggers tests never worked for me till I was at least 7 weeks along. You might be waiting for a while.

Hilary (The Trying Game) said...

What are you now, 11 DPO? That could still be too early for a positive HPT.

Hang in there! Thinking of you guys!!

Deb said...

Actually, come next January, that kid is going to kick your ass long before you kick his/hers. (I'm just warning you, that's all.)

I hope the Red Menace stays away...

Ed (zoesdad) said...

Fingers crossed, man. Good Luck.

Tismee2 said...

Marylin said...

Oh jeez, you mean I STILL need to keep everything crossed?! :P

Really hoping this is if for you both ((hugs))

Lori said...

Hoping and praying Aunt Flo will find someone else to live with for the next 9 months.
Eyes, fingers, arms, legs, toes, and thoughts all crossed for you two ... hopefully three!
Cheers!

Best of luck to you.

@Aunt Becky - I agree.

@Tara R - You'd better breathe.

@Jenni - thanks for the thoughts.

@Lance - Killing YOU????

@Bettina - 7 weeks? hahaha no thank you.

Myst_72 said...

Not sure if this helps...but...I was almost at 6 weeks before I had a positive test with Z16 - I knew I was pregnant - but it just wasn't showing up yet!
....that was 17 years ago though
.....OMG now I feel old!

Best wishes to you both for the wait,

A Whole Lot of Nothing said...

I'm not a good "waiter." I'd rather scrape my eyeballs out with a spork than wait for anything important.

Momo Fali said...

Well, no period is good. I'm still being hopeful!

justmylife said...
