- Wedding: September 2012
Hi, bees! First time writing on the TTC boards, so pardon me for not knowing the lingo. Darling Husband and I were married this past September, we are not currently TTC, but we’re not NOT trying, ya know?
I’ve been feeling downright yucky for the last week and a half or so. Nausea, extreme fatigue, horrible mood swings, back and leg soreness, and bad reflux. I also have some lower abdominal discomfort, not cramps but like sharp pangs every once in awhile. And im having quite a bit od discharge (sorry for the TMI). I can attribute all those symptoms to things other than being pregnant (not enough sleep, bad days at work, etc.), but when I put them all together, my spider senses start tingling.
I’m on the birth control pill and I got my period almost right on time (was a few hours later than usual, doubt that makes a difference). It was significantly lighter than usual, but I think my cycle has been a bit off since the wedding (I got my period two weeks early after getting married, then on time, so twice in one month). So I don’t know if my system is just trying to readjust or what.
Prior to the wedding, I was very diligent with my pills. On the honeymoon, I never missed a day, but often took them at different times in the day. So maybe that screwed something up? I don’t track my ovulation or monitor my temperature or anything like that. I was so paranoid that I might be pregnant that I took a pregnancy test 2 days after the completion of my semi-period this month (came back negative), but the women I work with said I tested too early.
How the heck are you supposed to know you’re pregnant if you’re on the pill? I got this weird feeling on the honeymoon that I was pregnant, but couldn’t really justify it. Now I have all these symptoms, but a BFN, and I don’t know what to make of it. The girls at work swear I’m preggers, but I’m not 100%. Part of me wants to be so I have a good explanation of why I’m feeling so crappy lately. But the thought of being pregnant is a little scary and intimidating… Not sure if I’m ready! On the other hand, if I’m not pregnant, I have no clue why I’m feeling the way I am.
So what are your thoughts, bees? I’m so torn. I tend to over think everything. Maybe I have the flu? I dunno, there’s a little nagging voice in the back of my head that’s telling me it’s something else. Please give me some feedback, I’m going crazy spinning my own wheels! Thanks much, bees!
