Sore boobs - check. More so in the morning or late at night. I guess a bra does wonders.
Frequent urination - check.
Nausea - early on after meals, I'd have to take a deep breath and let it out occasionally to get over a feeling in my stomach. Tonight, I tasted a little urp coming up, but now I'm just enjoying this feeling on the couch. Or was it the enchiladas?
Cramping - at least the kind I think I felt the other night seems totally normal for this stage and represents uterine growth. Apparently.
(The lack of doctor intervention at this point - which I hear is totally normal - has forced me to seek out internet answers for the things that freak me out. Someone has to tell me these things!)
Lack of menstrual period - still enjoying that one
Today was my first day back at school after Christmas break. I wanted to start wearing a mask as soon as I walked in the door. I mean that place is teaming with all sorts of aerosols and chemicals that I shouldn't be exposed to anyway, much less the growing embryo inside me that's trying to make organs right now. After speculating about when a girl in my class was going to return to school after having her baby before Christmas, a friend directed a big fat "when are you going to have a baby" at me to which I gave a big "I don't know" kind of look to which she responded "You're already pregnant, aren't you" to which I gave a "Seriously?" kind of look. This quiet game is tough.
