A little over a week ago I noticed my breasts were hurting, and not in the normal PMS sort of way. No, in fact it was my nipples and then it slowly spread downwards. This was my first "red flag" since it was still 10 days from when PMS sore breasts would occur. I had some cramping and lower back pain, but almost all low cramping I chalk up to my broken colon (that's a different open letter). The back pain I shrugged off as sitting on my duff too much.
Then I drank coffee, and it made me nauseous. It tasted like crap. I love coffee, so this makes me sad. Hanging up DH's shirts meant hangers got put in my mouth as per usual, except this time I gagged so hard I almost puked. My breasts are still pretty sore, even on the sides now. Almost every dinner I feel a few small waves of nausea, and every night when I lay down I feel like I might puke. My mouth even gets a little watery.
I would like to sincerely thank you for the lack of breakouts which you normally grace me with at this point in my cycle, because I don't enjoy looking like I'm in high school. It not a good look on a grown woman.
Now, given all these "signs" and "symptoms", would you care to explain why I can't get two little lines on those plastic sticks I spent money to pee on?!?!
I'd really like to know, and The arrival of AF is scheduled for only a few days away. To be honest I've spent the last week looking at baby stuff on Amazon, researching local midwives, and reading all the FAQs on birth pools. It makes me look a little crazy since I don't even know for sure, and we had no plans for another child anyhow so all this looking and researching will have been for nothing if AF does show. Please don't make me look like a crazy lady.
The chick who's used two dollar store tests and two FRERs and only seen stark white.
P.S. - If getting nauseated off coffee was "in my head" I am going to be royally pissed.
Okay I feel mildly better. Mother Nature, please take note.
