PUPO for $1,000 Alex...

Somebody once made a fabulous point, regarding the whole misery of CD1.

If you think about it, you're actually possibly 1day pregnant with every CD1 - let me explain...

The way "they" count (and I guess when I say they I mean doctors offices and practices and their nurses, so by default all women...) a pregnancy's weeks is that, upon testing at 14DPO and getting a BFP, you're already 4 weeks pregnant.

So the day you ovulate, you are already technically TWO weeks pregnant.  And CD1?? (Ok, for my peeps out there with freakishly long or short cycles, anything BUT the "textbook and typical" 28 days = 14days before ovulation....)
You're technically ONE DAY PREGNANT!

So this month will go two ways - I'm currently "22 days pregnant" and will either continue this countdown (count up?) or will reset the clock in 4 days*...

Regardless, each future CD1, I'm going to sob and toast with my (very full) glass of wine - to being one day pregnant!

(puts a whole new meaning to PUPO - pregnant until proven otherwise!)

*oh my god... i can't believe its only four days... i THINK i want to know, and then the terrifying what if's have me thinking, but if it's negative, i don't want to know - let me still be blissfully ignorant and have SOME hope...
 oh lord, dear god and universe and fate and kizmet and karma and WHOEVER else is listening...



  1. Praying for you with all my might that you are totally KTFU! If not, I will be right here with a bottle a wine for ya!

  2. Praying for you!! I really really hope that you see a positive soon!!!
