...and then I woke up
I was nursing the secret a bit, just reveling in the joy of it. Then I went and got the little plastic test and showed Warren the the control line and the second faint pink line that meant we finally had a success. I was even composing how I'd break the exciting news to people, complete with the caveat about the 25% chance of a miscarriage. Even weighing that risk, I was happy because it was such a huge step forward. Then I woke up, realizing that I was lying in bed and that there was no positive test.

Trying to conceive takes up way too much head space. Even on this, an off month, my subconcious won't give me a break.

Its also annoying that whenever I wake up in the middle of a dream I spend the rest of the day sleepy. It must have something to do with breaking the sleep cycle at a bad place, but I can't figure out how to fix that, at least not when I need to go in to work.

Ow, that's the worst kind of pregnancy dream, because it's hard to shake off right away, whereas the ones where I'm about to give birth are easier to identify as not true as soon as I wake.

Its reassuring to know I'm not the only one to have these sorts of dreams, though I'm sympathetic to the others who have them. My subconcious seems to specialze in believable in this realm. The dream with the six week ultrasound of dead twins is about as pregnant as my dreams have ever portrayed me. You must have a better imagination.

"You must have a better imagination."
It might just be more practice; I've been having pregnancy dreams since my teens and I've attended two births.

Oh yeah, I hate it when that sort of thing happens.
