And it was about 12-14 days late. This put to rest my hopes and fears that i was pregnant. I must of been late due to stress or something. I took a pregnancy test before i left to visit DHs family for christmas and it was negative, but you never know with those things, right? Interesting though, in the 10 days I was waiting I learned I am ambivalent about wanting to have a baby right now. I had been having major baby fever – I even put on my xmas wish list to Darling Husband that i want to be a mother to his child, lol (but I was sort of kidding!). Our actual plan is to wait until I finish school (which I should be done by the Fall) and we are a little more financially stable.
But more interesting than my ambivalent reaction was DH’s reaction to all this – he seemed more hopeful that i WAS pregnant and sort of disappointed that I wasn’t!!! Which of course makes me want to have his baby more now…..so who knows, maybe we will start TTC sooner than i thought! Just gotta finish that damn dissertation….but what could be more motivating than being able to plan a pregnancy 🙂
anyone else have a pregnancy scare that turned into plans to get pregnant?

ehhh, we kind of did. we thought I was pregnant in October and that just made me want a baby really bad and I guess it did for Darling Husband too because he told me the other night he wants a baby ASAP.

kind of – we started trying, and when I was due for my period in november, I was all of a sudden in a panic that I really wasn’t ready, was crazy for not “owning a home!” (that’s all we EVER hear) etc. Then I got my period and was so, so disappointed. It kind of helped us realize that we are ready 🙂

Darling Husband and I originally planned to start trying in 2014. We wanted to wait a couple of years and travel a little bit and make sure we were financial ready for a baby. Well last year at this time we had a scare and when we got the negative result on the pregnancy test we actually cried. We both acted to each other like we didn’t want to be pregnant but had the same reaction when finding out we weren’t So it’s safe to say we changed our game plan lol. We went off the pill in August and are hoping to a little on.

I’ve never had this happen to me, but it’s funny how these kinds of scares change our perspective on things!
Thats very sweet your Darling Husband was excited with the idea of a little one. 🙂
Good luck with your dissertation!

@roxy821: yup that is pretty much our plan. i want to finish school and have a couple of years to travel and enjoy life without school and kids AND we want to know where we are going to settle down and become more financially secure (we have been alot the past few years due to our internships)….but my baby fever and biological clock and now Darling Husband are just not on board with this plan!
@Evie19: thank you, i need all the luck i can get 🙂
