As far as my own special circle of hell - otherwise known as "my 2.5 week wait courtesy of the booster shots"- is going, well, it's going okay I guess. I really haven't been obsessing too much -until now. I am 5dp3dt. I had 2 bouts of nausea today - one when I first came in from taking Libby for her morning walk and one when I got to the bank. I think they both had more to do with an empty stomach, being overly warm and possibly even the booster shots, than any "symptom", but none the less it had me running to Dr. Google to see just how early in a pregnancy nausea can be experienced. This of course led to full on breast inspection including poking, prodding, nipple check and vein examination. The boobs hurt, the nipples are fine and the veins are no more and no less "veiny." Then of course the litany of other symptoms I needed to ponder: Am I peeing more often? Who knows? I always pee a lot - that one is impossible for me to judge. Hungry? For sure, but that is thanks to the Prednisone. Tired? Yep, but that's the hormones too. I learned the hard way last time that Progesterone plays nasty tricks on poor, vulnerable women in the 2ww so I am trying not to over analyze, but today that is not going so well. The fact is that by this point implantation has occured or it hasn't and there is not a damn thing I can do about it. Oh well - 2 boosters down and 1 to go. T-minus 12 days until Beta...
I feel a little stuck in a holding pattern. I feel like we haven't made much progress in getting the house settled in over a week. We had the initial mad-dash and got the big things done, but then with my ER & ET, we have really slowed down. I really need to get the office in order, the family room decorated, the bathroom cabinets organized, the guest rooms set up and million other things that I just have not been motivated to work on recently. I can't believe we have lived here 2 weeks already!
I did run some errands today and it felt good to check a few things off the "to do" list. Gotta love the Target trip where you spend over a $100 on things you flush down the toilet or rinse down the sink! I did manage to get myself 2 pair of capris to get me through the next few weeks. Did I mention that my fat ass only fits into 2 pair of capris from last summer?!? This happens to me every year - at this rate I am going to be wearing mu mus by next summer. I have gone up a size every summer since I got married - GROSS!!! I hated to buy new clothes at this point because if I get a BFP, it won't be long before I am hitting up the maternity stores and if it is a BFN, I am back at WW and the gym full force ASAP. With the 2 new pair of capris, I now have a grand total of:
1 pair of jean capris
1 pair of black capris
2 pair of yoga pant capris
What a wardrobe!!! Am I ready for the runway or what??? Hopefully there won't be too many social engagements on the calendar in the next few weeks...
