Pee On A Stick?

Thursday, January 21, 2010

So, I've been having early pregnancy symptoms. Which are ironically almost identical to PMS symptoms. I am not amused. Let's do the run down, shall we?

Before I Knew I Was Pregnant:
-mildly nauseous at varying points in the day, never actually throwing up
-super freaking tired
-period like cramps that started when I was due for my period. Didn't go away until I was 10 weeks.
-sore boobs
-using the bathroom a lot
-mood swings like WHOA, tearing up over everything & it's mother
-bloated as all get out

PMS Symptoms:
-sore boobs
-sometimes mood swings resulting in crying

So as you can see, pretty similar. I'm currently bloated, irritable, mildly nauseous most days, crampy, using the bathroom a lot, crying over everything, & I can barely keep my eyes open.

All of those things could be explained by a possible pregnancy, PMS, OR post partum body trying to regulate itself again. My symptoms have been going consistantly for 2 weeks now. The only time I've ever had PMS symptoms for 2 whole weeks was when I was pregnant, the rest of the time it's a day or three and boom, period.

Bah. I want 2 under 2 but I don't really want to be pregnant again so soon (we were thinking of ditching condoms around August 2010). There are many margaritas to be drunk! We've used condoms everytime, so the odds are pretty good I'm NOT pregnant. Which is very good news for the margaritas of the world. (Can you tell what I missed while I was pregnant?)

So. Pee on a stick, or wait it out to see if Aunt Flow rearsher ugly head? I'm 8 weeks post partum and my OB seems to think I should of bled by now. Especially given the symptoms I've had. I'm not sure if I want to waste money, but I also should probably know so I can avoid those yummy margaritas in the future. Blah.

Noelle, we were planning on TTC #2 around August 2010. I welcome a breif vacation too! I mean if I am I am okay with it (after I cry and faint, probably) but I'd rather not be so I can enjoy a few more margaritas before being indisposed for 9 more months!
