So here I am....This is my story. I'm a 29 yr old who is happily married to a man who has been through it all with me. He has been really wanting children for about three years now. It was my birthday that kinda slapped me into a age reality check. So we started trying at the end of July 06. I noticed that I felt weird at the beginning of this month. On Oct. 10th I noticed my lower belly was like a freaking rock. I thought I may have been really bloated from the prenatal vitamins I had started taking on the 3rd. On that Friday, I started feeling my uterus. That is the only way I can describe it. It was like when I have my period and my uterus feels like it's made of concrete, but no cramps. Then I started getting ridiculous heartburn every night for a week. Then I started getting it in the morning too. I knew something was seriously going on....either I was pregnant or I had that disease that makes all your organs turn hard. So, last Thursday around 6:30 I made up my mind to take a prego test. My husband was walking the dog. As I loomed around my bathroom sink, it turned positive almost as soon as it absorb. I kept shaking my heads, squinting my eyes, was that right? When in the heck was I supposed to get my period? I went back downstairs to look at the calendar. I still had a week till my expected "aunt flo" came to town. Hmmm....this past weekend my husband brought home two more prego tests. He took one, as a control, and I took the other. Of course his was negative, and mine was still positive. I'm so miffed at this point. I've done alot of reading since that Thursday, and most of the time, it says that your body does not have enough HCG to make a positive result until you miss your period and you should do it first thing in the morning. Here I was at 6:30 at night and a least a full week until my period. WHAT THE HECK!!! Then I started thinking about it some more. My periods off contraceptive take at least five to six full days, then two light ones. My last period was on Sept. 28th and was over by the 2nd. Short. So, now I don't know how pregnant I am and it's driving me bonkers! I have my doctors' appointment with my regular doc this thursday. Although I don't want to be an el psycho, I have to know and calculations are just not going to satisfy me.
Besides that horomonal maniac that lives in my head, I feel good. I'm gassy all the time, and I still feel my uterus. Sometimes, more than not, I feel like my inerds are jammed up into my rib cage. I can't stand sweet things, they repulse me and I want broccoli in the worst way. We have eaten it for the last four days as our dinner veggie. My husband just smiles and eates it. I've fortunately only felt nauseaous twice. Once when my supervisor at work ripped this poor guy a new butt hole, and later that evening. I learned that if I shove one or two crackers down, then it settles my belly right away. I've been very lucky and hope that my good luck continues. knock on fake wood. I feel good in the morning. I have energy and I can move better. I feel all tight in the belly region by the evening and that brings me back to the, "why am I feeling this so vividly this early?" If I go by the first day of last period, I'm only 4 wks along. I don't see what I am feeling at ALL in the what's going on with your body part. I"M SO CONFUSED.
Anyways, I gotta get going. I will write what happens at the dr's on Friday!
Much love to all!
