I'm tired of how disappointed we all are when we get our periods. No one knows more than me how upsetting it is. As my husband can tell you, I'm not a "look on the bright side" kind of person. But I have it idea that might help the negative pregnancy test sting just a little less.
I'm calling it GAP-BAG. It stands for Get A Period-Buy A Gift.
Last month, I decided that if I got my period, I was going to buy myself this necklace I've had my eye on for at least a year. It's not a break-the-bank kind of necklace, but I don't like to spend money on things like this for myself when we have bills and plenty of other places to put our money.
But damnit, I (we) deserve something for the hell I've (we've) gone through these last two months. Since I decided on the necklace before this cycle began, I started watching for a sale. Not only will it go on sale this Wednesday, I have a $10 off coupon. Gotta love Kohls. So here is a photo of the necklace I'll be buying myself as a consolation prize:
What about my IF sisters? What will you do to lift your own spirits if the bad kind of spotting starts? It doesn't have to be expensive, maybe a book or even a double mocha latte since you've been avoiding coffee during the 2ww.
