Being that I am a stay at home mom, I am active in the stepchildren's PTA at school. So I volunteered to come in this morning and make copies and do a few little jobs etc.
So Im standing at the copy machine (a very labor-less task) and all of a sudden I start getting a hot flash and sweating and dizzy to the point where I had to take off my over shirt and sit down.

And that got me thinking, am I going through menopause, or am I pregnant lol Of course this was a joke, being that I am only 27 but the symptoms are pretty much the same.

1. Hot Flashes
With this pregnancy, I am basically sweating all the time.

2. Night Sweats
I have woke up wet in the middle of the night.

3. Mood Swings
lol, talk about being happy, then crying all within the same sentence!!

4. Fatigue

Morning, afternoon, and evening naps are all part of my schedule now .

5. Anxiety

Hurry up, and wait has been the story of my life the past 6 months. Hurry up lets by all the baby stuff, and then put it in the basement for the next 3 months. lol

6. Incontinence
Am I not alone on this one or what???

7. Breast Tenderness

lol, wow. Ever since about the 3rd month my boobs have been off limits! As soon as I walk in the door, my bra is the first thing to come off because of how uncomfortable it is.

8. Headaches

Yup, warm wet rag !

9. Dry Vagina

This is probably the ONLY symptom that I dont have, and would want to have in replacement of whats going on there right now lol.

10. Weight Gain

Who is not looking at the scale any more??

Just thought this would give you all a chuckle. Happy Hump Day!!

Thank you *Kiliki* for the awesome siggy

lol i am right there with you. Most of those things on the list apply to me right now especially the hot flashes/night sweats/ mood swings/ breast tenderness. But like you I am doubting that at 23 Im hitting menopause The worst are the hot flashes! There is nothing worse than a hot flash in 110 degree weather
