I was starting to feel different…My nipples were unusually sensitive and sore. My back was hurting more than usual and I was feeling fatigue throughout the day…could it be? Could I finally be prego?
I ended up missing my period..I was supposed to have it on Friday, but I did some research and found that women can get their periods anywhere from 28-31 days, even 32! If you are irregular, it can even take longer. I was so sure, I mean I did the research and the symptoms I were experiencing could actually be either PMS or pregnancy symptoms. A few days later, I had a lot of cramps. At this time, I was thinking..hmm…are these period cramps or is the egg implanting on me? I hear cramps when pregnancy occur because of that…I was getting very excited. I noticed my body temperature increasing as well, and sure enough, that was another sign, too.
Day 31 passes by and still, no period. I was so excited..I woke up to find that I didn’t have any more pregnancy tests, so I had my husband get some. Later that evening, I went to take the test…I sat there and placed the test in my urine stream. My heart started beating and I started feeling shakey…would I see 2 stripes? A few seconds go by, I see the window fill up and there it was…a single stripe. I shook the test a few times and let it sit there, maybe it needs some time. The box does say 5 minutes. I left the room and was so nervous to come back, but still, single line. I was so crushed. I mean what is going on? I told my husband and he was bummed out, too.
I didn’t know what to think or do. My doctor was out of town until next week, so should I get back on progesterones to induce my period? What if I am prego and the test is wrong? I wanted to sit on it for a few days, I mean geez, I thought that this was it.
Then I wake up the next day, and there it was, my period. I was happy and sad at the same time. Happy because my period FINALLY came on its own. That means that I am ovulating. Sad because I was definitely not pregnant. At least having my period on my own tells me that I am starting to get back to normal.
I have a really good feeling that IT’S going to finally happen….
