so on Feb 13th, at 11 dpo, i got this:
and then i got this, you know, just for fun:
so i had about 2 days of hopeful and calm pregnancy thoughts.....but you know it can't be easy for me, right? ....so then, 2 days after my beautiful pregnancy test......
i had bleeding. cramps. red blood. a clot. (sorry...but if that grosses you out...you are on the wrong blog)
so.....of course...I'm sad. devastated. we talk about how we should take a break from trying for awhile because this is just too much. too emotional.
but i only had that bleeding one time. in fact i woke up the next morning prepared for the worst but i had a dry pad and no cramps.
so WTF, right? WHAT. THE. FUCK.
so i wait for it to start. and wait. and a week goes by. and then i decide to go get my beta numbers done....
20 dpo: 5600
22 dpo: 10,000
so.......now i wait to see if there is in fact a baby growing in there....my u/s is next Wednesday.
i am not very hopeful. i am not very confident. i am trying to not get ahead of myself......and i hate this fucking limbo. because i can't be excited and i can't down a bottle of tequila. i just have to wait. and wait. and hope to not see more blood every single fucking time i go pee.
so yes, i am technically pregnant. but i had a missed miscarriage in Dec 08 that haunts me. well, i guess they all do.
onto the fun stuff:
no puking yet...but I've had a couple of those "omg this is the grossest thing i have ever eaten" moments while eating a meal that pass and you continue eating...like this AM while eating scrambled eggs.
cravings: tuna melt, veggie bagels, rocky road.
aversions: nothing really yet...but Dan ate some bbq potato chips last night and the smell made me want to kill him.
other stuff: i am starving. and exhausted. on sunday i took two, 3 hour naps. this morning for breakfast i had 2 eggo waffles, 2 scrambled eggs, and an english muffin. and i was still hungry. and who eats eggo waffles? 5 year olds and pregnant women.
oh and my nips hurt and i am still breastfeeding milo....let me tell you how awesome that feels.
so....another year, another month, another rollercoaster. everyone cross your fingers next wednesday.
