So I have to admit that I'm incredibly nervous now. Once the adrenaline wore off and I stopped shaking so bad in excitement, the worry set in. Worrying about my insurance and prenatal care, worrying about a blighted ovum or cysts that give off HCG, worrying about everything... and nothing of importance.
I'm trying to stay positive and just pretend that nothing will happen, to pretend that I already know all is well even though I haven't had one test. I haven't even called the doctor yet since I tested over the weekend. I don't want to live an entire 8 months in fear.
My symptoms, or lack thereof, also make me fearful. But I have to remember and remind myself that I didn't really have nausea until week 9 with both of my girls. Every pregnancy is different, of course, but it gives me comfort to know that everything is probably just fine.
Can I just add, before I list my symptoms, how incredibly humorous it is that you don't really notice symptoms until you see the two lines? All of a sudden you have an entire list of symptoms. You wake up and feel bloated, you notice you pee every hour, your breasts have swelled up twice the size--- all in the course of the middle of the night since finding out you're pregnant.
I joined an amazing website- BabyFit. I'm continuing my diet and exercise (though it will be moderated, of course). I also found another website I adore, where I got my beautiful ticker. Most people have heard of it- TheBump.
My Symptoms (thus far):
-peeing all the time
That's about it. No nausea, no food aversions, no sore breasts (even on progesterone- but I never really had sore breasts with my girlies either). The fatigue and headaches are from the progesterone.
Ugh, I had a ton more typed up but my server keeps messing up. The server popped on to say they fixed it but of course half of my blog post wasn't saved. I don't feel like typing it all out again. Blech........
