Let’s Talk about Feelings

I don’t really “feel” like I’m pregnant. Did any of you feel that way before you got your BFP?

I do, however, feel like yuck. And yes, that is the professional term. I have been *exhausted* the last few days, much more tired than I usually am. Around 3 p.m., I usually have to struggle to keep my eyes open at work. Yesterday, I started getting a headache, which I still have today, and today I started feeling pukey. It’s a different feeling than regular nausea. It comes in waves, and my stomach feels like I’m on a rollercoaster. It’s definitely not the kind of nausea I’ve had in the past. Oh, and did I mention my boobs *hurt*? I haven’t really been paying much attention to them because they’ve been sore from all the meds, but they *kill* me when I lay down on my stomach every night for my progesterone shot.

Luckily, I have an awesome hubby who won’t let me do anything today besides sit on the couch and watch TV.

    I, for one, think you are SOOOOO pregnant. šŸ™‚ I just had weird cramps, very tired, a little spotting, and sore boobs. I didn’t get any nausea until later on, around 7 weeks or so.

    When can you test? I can’t wait, and I’m not even the one testing!!

  2. Red says:

    I totally agree! I felt like hell for awhile before I found out I was preggo. It was hard for me to tell though because my HAE makes me feel like hell somewhat often anyways, so it was just intensified. Your hormones could just be totally wack right now, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you! =-)

    Oh, you are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pregnant.

  4. Kami says:

    Sore boobs and you might also notice your veins in the chest area being darker than normal (increased blood flow)! These were the first signs for me šŸ™‚

    Sound like good signs to me!

    How does all of that equal not feeling pregnant? šŸ™‚ I never felt any symptoms at all until I was about 6 weeks along. I would never have guessed pg without the 3 BFPs. šŸ˜‰ I have often felt more “pregnant” when I wasn’t, than when I was.

  7. Mandy says:

    ummm…I believe you are pregnant. I will be very surprised if your tests say otherwise. Those are all classic signs!

  8. Sara says:

    Yay for boob pain! The veins are a tell-tale sign, do you have those showing? I had those and so did Jac.

  9. Becky says:

    I’ve been following you for a few weeks now, and a lot of what you say sounds familiar. I’m 6 weeks pregnant (our first) and am all about the exhaustion and sore boobs right now. No real nausea to speak of yet. It sounds good…
