Why are pregnancy symptoms the same as period symptoms? It’s just so cruel … even now, after two years of constant failure, I can’t squash that bit of me that hopes that at the end of EVERY two week wait I’ll be magically pregnant. Even now, as I’m waiting for period to come so we can start IVF No 2, I’m secretly praying that I will be pregnant – hey presto! Thereby saving us $6000, a whole lot of stress, and me another good dosing of hormones. Geesh.
