I've had a cold since the day I got my BFP. Now I wonder if I'm still sick, or if they are pregnancy symptoms? I am coughing, but it's usually because I seem to have extra saliva. What is up with that? There is so much it takes me by surprise and chokes me! Last night, I went to bed at 9, and got up at 7:30 this morning and am still very tired. Aaron keeps on pointing out all my zits (this last point scores him zero points. Why yes Aaron, I did notice the large zit RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of my cheek. But thanks for pointing it out. Not.). I'm gassy. Very very very gassy - to the point it hurts. And I'm a little crazy. Aaron was cooking dinner and I was poking him and joking around with him, and it caused him to drop something. And he was rather sharp with me. Which normally would just have me saying 'WTF' and him saying sorry and us moving on. Instead it blew up into a full on 15 minute scream fest. I'm just so tired all the time, and my stomach hurts and I got fed up with it all. Good times.
But, I'm thankful that my body is going through all these changes. To me, it can mean only good things. Tomorrow I go to my OB/GYN tomorrow to meet with the nurse for my 8 week checkup. I'm a little nervous, to tell you the truth. And the thing I'm nervous about is so lame - that I have gained weight over the past months - with the 2 IVF cycles and all the time I've spent being sick/recovering and not working out. Old habits die hard, huh?
This past weekend was really nice. It was the first really relaxing weekend I've had in a while. I had (on purpose) scheduled myself to be super busy during the last 6 weeks - so I wouldn't be obsessing on the pregnancy test or the aftermath. But now, that I pretty much have nothing to do for next few weekends - I'm really looking forward to it!
