Probably waited it out on their own, and avoided talking to people about it because they didn’t think others would understand what they’re going through. At least, that’s how I would have dealt with it back then.

I would think they wouldn’t self diagnose and create every symptom that they were pregnant!! At least that would be me!

Without the internet they probably wouldn’t have been able to google symptoms, use online charts, etc. so they were probably less crazy!! Haha I was thinking about that last month during my TWW, how much simpler it would’ve been if I didn’t even know what the TWW was lol

For example:  they wouldn’t have been able to google “Do cats sense when you’re pregnant?” (My normally stand-offish cat has been snuggling with me like crazy the last few days and so naturally, I had to check to see if this is a sign that I could be pregnant).

TWW = Crazy Lady.

@Miss Root: yes this exactly.

They would be slightly less of a nutcase about the 2WW but they wouldn’t have anyone to vent to.

googles– um early pregnancy signs include sore boobs…

*pokes boobs* – Nope, not sore yet…

*pokes boobs* –How bout now?

*pokes boobs* -Now?  Kinda..or are they sore from poking?  

*pokes boobs*

 *pokes boobs*

*pokes boobs*

*pokes boobs* ah yeah, they’re sore, I must be pregnant.

@panterapeach: LMAO!!  My Darling Husband does this to me EVERY DAY.  He thinks it’s funny.  And maybe it was the first couple of months.  But at this point I am like “Step away from the boobs Dude!”

@MightySapphire:I am 18 weeks and my boobs just kill, oh and my nipples forget it. During bed sessions with Hubs, he tries to play and um it just ain’t happening. Always hard always hurting
