Monday at work, I thought I felt a twinge in an odd spot.
Monday night, I went to sleep very early. Sometime in the middle of the night, I coughed in my sleep and woke myself up when my cough pulled a muscle painfully around my belly.
Tuesday I got a bloody nose at work.
Tuesday night I hobbled home from the leg cramps in my legs.
Wednesday I jumped at the chance to make cheeseburgers for Sam for lunch.
Wednesday night, I tossed and turned all night.
Thursday morning, while driving to work and thinking, "Could I be...?" I saw a crow fly across the road and land in a field next to another crow.
One week later...
One week later...completely convinced that I'm not pregnant. No symptoms. Nothing. I'm having terrible pregnancy nightmares and not sleeping at all. Of course, I've been sleeping for three days because of the stomach flu (and yes...it was the flu...it wasn't morning sickness...I know the difference)...so maybe I'm just not tired.
Something I've been thinking about...if ONE nurse or doctor comes at me with a tape measure at ANY time, I'm going to strangle them with it. They used that thing on me the whole time I was pregnant with Alex and they were off by who knows how many weeks. He weighed over 9lbs and he was only 35 weeks! Tape measures have NO place near me...unless I'm being fitted for some fancy clothes. That's my new rule.
Appointment January 31st. Lord, I'm going to be a fun patient.
We have a heartbeat.
Due date 9/22/06...which means absolutely nothing to us. The doctor's words, "We'll get the baby to a nice viable size, ready to be born, and get em the heck out of there." So I'm thinking sometime early August. Our anniversary is August 13th...that would be nice.
Morbid humor from the appointment.
Doctor: So are you planning for a repeat c-section then?
Me: Don't really care as long as it comes out alive.
Doctor: Ummm...yeah...that would be the goal.
I think I'm going to go freak out, if you don't mind.
Guess this explains all the nightmares.
Sorry for the delay in posting this. I had to tell mom first (Hi mom!). :o)
