4 more days until I can take a pregnancy test! The suspense is killing me!!! I keep thinking , my stomach is cramping, is that a symptom of pregnancy? The problem is that every early symptom of pregnancy also seems to be a symptom of starting your period. & then there is the progesterone that I am taking each day that also gives symptoms of pregnancy so overall, there is no way to tell until Tuesday!!! I ate a huge slice of chocolate pie before going to the gym yesterday that I had been thinking about for days & was wondering, is this a pregnancy craving? More than likely I just really wanted that pie though!!
Here are some of the symptoms I have had over the past 2 weeks though, either from the progesterone or from (hopefully!) being pregnant.
Symptoms past 2 weeks: moody (I have felt sooo grumpy some nights but am trying no to show it), huge & sore boobs (maybe TMI but it is true!), cramping (mostly the past 2 days), heartburn, a big zit on my forehead where I never have acne. I also felt like I was getting a cold yesterday evening, my throat was feeling scratchy, but I feel fine today!
I have been doing my best to stay really busy so that I don't think too much about taking the test on Tuesday! I wake up between 5:45 and 6 every morning, shower, get ready, eat breakfast, head to work, try to stay busy at work, go grocery shopping or do errands after work, read a book or take my dog on a walk, make elaborate dinners (cooking helps to destress me sometimes), go to the gym (I have been going to a yoga or on the barre class each evening which really helps me to destress & feel good, have dinner after the gym, relax & watch a show or Christmas movie with my husband & then go to bed.
Today is Friday so I will work on having a both busy & relaxing weekend. I was thinking of doing a spa day at home Saturday where I can take a bubble bath, read, do a homeade face mask, paint my nails, & just have a really nice relaxing day. I also have to clean the house really good either today or tomorrow, I have been needing to steam clean the floors badly! I just know Monday is going to be the hardest day, the day before I can take the test!
