Tomorrow is the D day for getting the confirmation for the results from my blood work hopefully. As the festive season gave us holidays the pathology might not be back until later this week, but fingers crossed they are back tomorrow so we can get our head around this and have a clear positive result.We are hoping that we are pregnant. Regardless of how fresh we are as a couple; it feels right. I wonder how people who handle it when we tell them the news. There is a few people who I know will most likely show a fake attitude of being happy for us but then have a gossip about us/me behind my back.
My monthly girly friend was due today but no sign of it yet. I keep thinking of the signs you see when you’re about to get your monthly but then they all can be symptoms for pregnancy as well – bloating, eating more… Today I thought I felt a bit of cramping in my stomach but it didn’t last very long and I’m not usually a person to get cramps until I’m into my monthly.
I developed a rash on my chest which when we looked it up on google it says its normal as it’s something to do with the hormonal changes. Might get it checked with the doctor tomorrow to see if it’s normal. Other symptoms I have that lead to us putting more of a ‘pregnant’ sign on me is the eating, the going back and to the toilet, feeling tired (over the work break I was snoozing in the middle of the day – which is abnormal for me), headaches, lack of breath at times, getting hot out of no where and sore tender breasts.
I’ve been feeling so lazy throughout this whole time I have been self diagnosed pregnant that I suggested to Daniel we start going for walks together every night as it’s one of the small exercise thing’s I could probably continue to keep up in pregnancy. Today Daniel and I went on our first walk. It felt good to be outside – having fresh air and getting the rays on me. After being so lethargic and tired within myself it was good to be able to do something good for my wellbeing.
Daniel read that on average it takes 4 to 5 months to get pregnant and 85% of couples take up to 1 year. I guess if we are pregnant we could be considered the lucky ones as we have had a pretty quick run. I guess Daniel was right in saying he believed his ‘swimmers were strong’ haha. I didn’t believe it could happen this quick. After trying for what was around 4 years on and off – well not exactly trying but to not be protective of not getting pregnant in my past relationship to now what’s pointing to almost immediately would be astonishing. In the past I always thought there was something wrong with me, I booked myself into the docs to get checked out to ensure I was okay about 2-3 times but I never went… I was too scared to be told I couldn’t have kids.
Fingers Crossed everyone for us that we get the ‘pregnant’ confirm tomorrow.
