Every time I have gotten pregnant in the past I have felt it. It’s hard to explain, but when my husband and I had the intercourse that would make us parents (or again) I always could feel it. “That was the one,” I would think. I have always been right.
Since we decided to try again, I have been prepared to know when it happens. It has only been about three weeks since I have been off birth control and we have tried a few times. I felt nothing, and have been fairly confidant in the assumption that I am not pregnant.
My husband just recently got hit with a bout of the flu that kept him out of work for three days. Yesterday, I felt myself suddenly hit with a headache, dizziness and nausea. I assumed that I too had gotten the flu, even though I found the timing strange since he was now getting over it.
Even though I cannot say for certain, it hit me today that I am probably pregnant. I have been having weird hormonal mood swings. I have been “nesting” and worrisome over the house. I have had headaches and dizziness every day (which I am treating by drinking more water) and my breasts are heavier, my nipples darker. I am absolutely floored. I won’t know until I miss my period, but even though we were trying having success this early in sure would surprise me.
