- Wedding: September 2010
The time for my period to arrive has come and gone. I would ignore this and put it down to stress (because boy, am I EVER stressed at the moment!), but ever since I “spotted” for a day two weeks ago (June 17 to be exact) I have had increasing nausea (no vomiting, I just spend all day, every day feeling like I need to), fatigue (I could seriously fall asleep on a dime), and a feeling of being faint. Classic pregnancy symptoms, right? No breast tenderness, but I am also (and this may be TMI!) ragingly horny suddenly, which is unusual for me the last few years.
I took a test two weeks ago, once I was late enough to get me worried, but it came up negative. I’m trying to take a patient “wait and see” approach to this, but its freaking me out, which is adding to my already through the roof stress levels. We both very much want kids, but weren’t planning to start for 1-2 years since we’re not getting married til this September and we wanted to spend a little ‘us’ time. Also, neither of us has health insurance or a full-time job. I just graduated and have been searching for over 3 months and he’s got another year left in school. Just the thought of trying to have a baby without health insurance is sending me into a panic. FI is very much ‘you’re just late. Don’t worry about it’ but I sense that he is starting to worry now that I am this late.
I know the answer is probably “Go to a doctor to get tested,” but how long should I wait if I get another negative result next time I home test? How expensive is it to have a baby without health insurance? Will I be showing in 2 more months (~3 months along?) when my wedding rolls along?
