So this morning, right on cue, I woke up with the “Ohhh crap!” feeling and rushed to the bathroom. Lucky I caught it in time, to just see one tiny dot of red in my undies. But sure enough, my period is on time and it is raging.
So it seems the past week could have been an unfortunate combination of horrible PMS and reactions from the ridiculous weather changes we have been having all week. (Seriously, 70F to 39F in ONE day!?) and they were just enough of a combination to make me really truly believe I was in that Delicate Condition.
I told FH this morning when he woke up. At first I didn’t have any reaction to it. Not relief of sadness… Just nothing. But when I told him I realized how much I had come to want this baby…He was surprised himself, and neither one of us is particularly relieved. More disappointed. But at least we don’t have to completely change our lives around right now. And we know now exactly how we feel.
I have been wanting a baby since I can remember, and while he was “born married” and has always wanted that “provincial life” he was sketchy on the thought of a kid so soon. Now we know we both want one. So maybe next year after we are married and move to a bigger place (this place is barely big enough for one person) we will start trying. We definately want to move the baby plans up a bit now. Which I think is great.
Thank you all for being so wonderful! I couldn’t really tell anyone else, without the entire city finding out. So I really appreciate all your advice and well wishes. You never fail to amaze me. This just proves over and over how amazing the women (and men) are on this board!
Well there seems to be a chance that I am expecting… If I am it is REALLLY early, only a week or 2 in. I am supposed to be getting my period this weekend, it is like clockwork, so if I don’t have any sign of that by Monday I am going to get a test. But so far all the earliest signs are there.
I want to know from experienced mommies tho how they knew (if they knew) before they took a test or missed a period. The lists of symptoms are great and all, but testimonials are more reassuring…
anyways, here goes the waiting game.
