    Default utterly paranoid

    i'm suffering from a severe case of pregnancy paranoia.

    right now DH and i are preventing- using condoms- we'd like to buy a house before we have another and make sure our recent issues are put behind us. so, in april i know we had an incident where it slipped off..... but AF came exactly 27.5 days after my last one.... but a week or so later i had very sensetive nipples.... and just out of paranoid went to the dollar store and POAS. totally neg. but it wasnt a great sample IYKWIM, middle of the day, diluted etc..... and then i had a couple days where i was just a little dizzy and nauseus no matter what i did.... invested another dollar... still BFN. June AF came, on the 1st, exactly 27.5 days after the last one, but i had horrific, i usualy have bad cramps, but not ones that wake me from a sound sleep and wont let me go back to sleep after 3 ibuprofen..... but i was running a 5k with my sisters that weekend, so i just drugged up and pushed on.

    So today, i'm laying down on the couch... and i feel "phantom" baby kicks. figured indigenstion. then rememberd i've been feelining "indigestion" on and off for like 2 weeks now, and so i put my hand on it to feel it AND I COULD FEEL IT WITH MY HAND. and it didnt feel like "indigestion" on my hand! so i ran to the dollar store, held it for like another hour, and then poas. still BFN.

    therefore i'm paranoid.

    either i've got some strange digestive issues (other than feeling "kicking" nothing else seems to be wrong...) and everything is fine and i'm freaked out over nothing. (because i have like a dozen friends pregnant who are all saying "watch out or you'll be pregnant too") or my AF was not AF, i'm feeling kicking, and the dollar store tests are all defective, AND i'm not sick like when i was pregnant both times before.

    occams razor says i'm not pregnant, just paranoid, but i'm REALLY REALLY paranoid!

    I have phantom baby kicks ALL THE TIME. I swear I can feel something in there as well. Crazy hormones.

    ME too.

    I mean, most of what you are saying. I was sitting here this morning thinking of taking a trip to the dollar store soon. LOL

    MY story: Depo shot was due 2 or 3 weeks ago, since DH had his Vasectomy 11-12 weeks ago, I'm not getting another hormonal birth control, shot or otherwise. Evie is still nursing every 2-3 hours ALL.AROUND.THE.CLOCK at 9 months old. AF hasn't returned for me yet. Chances of me being pregnant are slim to none.

    My paranoia symptoms: normal, everyday pregnancy symptoms including nausea and sensitive smell. My kick me in the pants paranoia symptoms that make me want to test, phantom kicks and twitching/pulling/spasming surgery scars which have only EVER twitched/pulled/spasmed when I was about 8-12 weeks pregnant and they were doing so because my belly was getting bigger already. Oh, and my belly doth appear to be about 8-12 weeks pregnant (for me).

    My unrational fears: the depo is messing with the tests to make them come out negative even though I'm "pregnant". I DID read that it's happened before... online... from a few different "personal experience" sites.

    I think we are all gonna end up on "I didn't know I was pregnant".

    My last negative test was last Wednesday.

    Oh, and DH was still "fertile" according to his 6 week post vasectomy semen analysis. They didn't give us numbers to say just HOW fertile he was, though.

    I guess technically I *could* be preggo too, since we aren't using any protection, other than the fact that I'm still nursing and AF hasn't come back. Maybe AF never will come back.......dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnn..........

    bwahahahahahhahah

    Every time the doc's offices ask if there's a chance I could be pregnant (reason for them to test), I always think... there's always a chance with a woman of childbearing age, even if prevention methods are being taken.... nothing is 100% unless she's just NOT having sex.

    I don't know if you are pregnant or not, but I can definitely feel digestive stuff with my hand when I'm not pregnant. A gas bubble or stomach growl or whatever.

    I have also heard that feeling phantom kicks are signs of thyroid issues. Which I have. And which my endo told me was normal. I forget what the reasoning was, but maybe it wouldn't hurt to have it checked?

    Regardless, update us soon!
