My Hysterical Pregnancy: Giving Birth to Crazy
So, yesterday I noticed a lot of little twinge-y type cramps in my uterus. Not heavy cramps, just little twinges. This is weird because I'm not due to start AF for several more days, I usually only get cramps right before AF, and they are usually much harder and more painful than little twinges.
This morning, I woke up feeling like someone had used my boobs for punching bags. And the icing on the cake? As I rolled over in bed, I swear I felt a twinge of round ligament pain. I know, I know, super early, but I swear that I felt the same thing a day or two before my BFP with the last pregnancy.
So, I took a test (no one get excited, this was the good kind! First Response, nothing but the best for me!) and.....
Later in the morning, a got hit with a crushing wave of nausea. Even as I sit here, my poor chest is just aching away.
I really wish that I could say the following: I know my body, dag nabbit! If my body says it's pregnant, then by God, I'm pregnant!
But the truth is, I know that I'm a little cuckoo when it comes to this whole pregnancy thing. So frankly, at this point, I am more than prepared to believe the pregnancy test, and believe that I'm just misreading the signs.
The funny thing is that I am sooo not looking to get pregnant quite yet. I have decided that I do want to try again, but DH and I agreed that we are going to wait until after we get my last set of test results back so that we will have a plan more firmly in place. Wouldn't it be just my luck to have a little slip up and have an oops pregnancy on top of everything else. But when I got the BFN, I still had the nerve to feel a little disappointed.
Told DH about it. I woke up before the alarm (to what felt like RLP) and laid there waiting for him to wake up. Finally, I pretended that I was just innocently rubbing his back (which he loves) but when he stirred I said "Are you awake? I think I'm pregnant." That got his attention all right. Since I haven't even missed a period, he decreed me "bat$!t crazy" (it's funny because it's true) and got up and went about his morning routine. After I took the test, he tried very hard not to say "I told you so."
