The Great Pregnancy Scare of 2008

August 4, 2008 at 1:55 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

I thought it would be a fitting first post on my new blog, since that has bascially consumed my weekend!  I really haven’t been feeling well this month, at all. We moved into our new house on July 3rd and it’s been hotter than anything. I haven’t been eating much and I just have a constant nauseous feeling all day and night. I’m also extremely run down, and the smells of some foods make me want to barf! Clearly I’m pregnant, or so I thought this weekend.

Just to give you a background: I’ve been taking Yasmin since October 2004, and since starting this beautiful and expensive pill I have never been late… EVER!  I always start by 2pm on a Friday (sorry if this is TMI, but eh oh well), and when that hadn’t happened, and no cramps, I started getting a little paranoid.  Under normal circumstances (i.e. insured), this wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but with medical costs and baby costs, well, I think you get the picture.  I finally told the Hubs around 8pm Friday night and he seemed rather flippant about the whole thing.  I’m sure he thought I was being a complete nut job, which I can understand, but come on dude, I know my body… something aint right yo!  Well, I went to bed trying not to worry about it because I have been under a lot of stress lately and blah blah blah.  By Saturday morning, I still hadn’t started, so I became increasingly worried sending Victor update texts all day.  When he called during his lunch break, he wanted me to tell my Mom, so I did.  To make a long story short, we decided to go get a test just to put our minds at ease (nevermind the fact that she was kind of excited).  Since we had been eating at Red Lobster, and we had leftovers we decided to run those home first because it was just too stinking hot out to let anything sit.  While I was doing that, I decided to check, and lo and behold, I was pretty sure I finally started (this had happened Friday night, but abruptly stopped).  Since we already had plans to go to the store, we decided to go on our way and forget the test.  Shopping turned up nothing that I needed, so we came back home and I was soooooo tired, all I could think of was NAP!  So we took naps, and when I woke up, I had once again stopped.  At that point, we decided something was going on, and it wouldn’t do any harm to buy a test just to check things out.  So we did, and I had stage fright.  I drank two water bottles and just couldn’t freakin’ pee!!  And by the way, holy crap those things are complicated to use.  I was joking to my Mom that I would prefer a home blood test over that crap.  Anyways, I finally used the restroom, and as I’m sure you can tell, the test was negative.  Not only was it negative, my body decided to be quite sarcastic and start full fledged right after I took the test, cramps and all!

So, in conclusion, I’m a paranoid freak-o. Really, I’m not. All the signs pointed to pregnancy, but apparently my body just can’t handle that much stress. I’m assuming my next post will be much more jovial! Or not, considering we are mere hours from a Monday. Happy week folks!
