Irony and the "Of Course I'm Not Pregnant" Moment

Well isn't' this just great. I'm not pregnant, I just know it.
OK then, after that upbeat opener let me explain. We all know, and I'm as true of a believer as they come, that pre-pregnancy symptoms are a MYTH. Therefore, I'm finding it so ironic that I'm having them. Ironic and disheartened because since I'm having these mythical symptoms that do not exist, then therefore it is just too good to be true and of course I'm not pregnant. (Don't ask, this is just how my brain works. There is always a crazy double-negative, or a 'you do this it means that', or an opposite-day kind of reaction in my brain. My poor husband.)
Example: All night and all day today I've had terrible nausea. Reasoning: It must have been some bad chicken salad that I ate. Ex: I've been craving "rich" foods like pancakes and french toast. Reasoning: It's winter, it's cold, there's snow outside and I need comfort food. Ex: I am extremely tired and napping everyday. Reasoning: I did wake up at 4:30 for work today, also could be a little depressed, and sleeping is care-free. Ex: I'm peeing a lot and it smells weird. Reasoning: I'm drinking more water and duh, the rich foods are making my pee smell different.
So as you can see there is a CLEAR explanation for all me pre-pregnancy symptoms and none of them is a bun in the oven. Man, just when I though I was putting on my Hopeful Halo this month, Negative Nancy is back in full effect.
Happy Monday everyone! Now I'm off to the bathroom then to take a nap.

I totally understand the pregnancy symptom myth logic. I hate anything even close to a symptom because it has that same effect on me too. I try like hell to ignore anything close to a symptom but they always seem to have some sort of (negative) effect on me.

I posted an award on my blog btw, check it out :)

ohhh I always get so mad at myself when I fall for the so called symptoms that never end up being symptoms. But one day they will, so keep on believing! So what if we are wrong 100x over, we have to right just once right?! They sound promising, the symptoms, they really do!

I'm torn :-/
I want to say you have a good shot at being knocked up and that they may very well not be myth symptoms but I don't want you to throw up on me for being positive about you feeling sicky!
I will still keep my fingers crossed. ((hugs))

I hope you feel pukey for a bun in the oven, not for food poisoning or flu... because then at least you have an AWESOME reason to feel blah. Keeping my fingers crossed and sending up prayers. I decided to pray for you on IUI day and every day of 2WW. So Negative Nancy be gone!
