- Wedding: June 2012
I really need to vent because I can’t talk to anyone else about this just yet!
I got married June 9th and we’ve had unprotected sex several times since then. I have been completely exhausted for the last couple weeks. I sleep pretty well at night yet I’m still so tired that I need to nap during the day. My period which was due on Friday is now two days late. I’ve had cramps but they don’t feel like period cramps…i’m not sure how to describe it other than it feels like my insides are being stretched and I’m very bloated. I also have to pee ALL the time. I used to go through the entire night without having to pee and now I’m up 2-3 times in the night. In fact my husband has recently given me the nickname “chicklet bladder” because i have to pee all the time.
We’re both ready to have kids but I honestly didn’t expect to get pregnant so soon. I’ve read that for couples who are TTC, there’s only a 1/5 chance each month of getting pregnant so I thought it might take us awhile. I haven’t told my husband about my symptoms or that my period is late. I know how much he wants to be a dad and I don’t want to get his hopes up until I know for sure.
Oh and one more thing that leads to my suspicion… I stopped by my mom’s house today because I hadn’t been there in a couple weeks and out of the blue my mom says she can tell that I’m pregnant. I didn’t mention anything about pregnancy to her. She said she can just “tell” that I’m pregnant…whatever that means. Mother’s intuition?
Do you think I should wait a few more days before I take a test or just go for it? I almost want to test before I tell my husband about my symptoms just so I don’t get his hopes up but I think he’ll want to be there when I take the test.
