So much to report to the Internet! I don’t know where to start. So yesterday I put this picture up on my Facebook page:
Allow my to show you my neurosis the last couple of days.
On my second day of bedrest, I had some low right sided cramping.
My first day off bedrest, we went walking around Galveston all day. I had a lot more painful cramping across my lower abdomen. This was definitely more than I had for the transfer in October.
Bloating! Lots of it. I spent the day waddling up and down the beach.
Every time I would laugh, I would get this sharp pain on my lower left side. Still bloated. Ate pizza and garlic bread anyway. Got even more bloated.
I’m probably not even pregnant.
I’m just eating a lot.
Should I test?
What if it’s negative?
No. I’m not going to test. It’s too early.
Ok, I will take a test. If it’s negative, it’s ok. It’s too early.
No. I’m not going to test.
… ok I’ll test.
Holy blue line! I see it! No squinting needed! Cue tears and frantic Internet search of “6dp5dt pregnancy test.”
Immediately go out and buy FRER’s. See this:
Line! That’s a line! Shit, I have a line!
Should I use a digital?
No. It’s too early.
Still cramping. Still bloated. Eat more pizza.
Feel better about testing. Start doing it obsessively.
Holy pink lines! And they’re getting darker! Must try digital!
I’m totally pregnant.
OMG! Look at that line!
That progression in just one day!
In two days!
Use last generic test.
Play with pregnancy week predictor pee stick.
Unsure how exactly it works, being that I am technically 4 weeks pregnant today.
Glue down latest mini pee stick to make creepy collage on kitchen table.
Freak out that I am going to have another chemical.
Use last FRER an hour later with diluted urine.
Oh FRER how I’ve missed you.
Line up pee sticks for more comparisons that only I will care about.
Realize I have a problem.
Have too many brands of pee sticks.
Dogs look at me like I’m crazy.
You guys. My beta is still five days away.
Did you hear that???
