Re: So Confused
I had VERY early symptoms this time around. We started trying right after my July period. I started bleeding about 4 or 5 days after ovulation, and I convinced myself that I had cervical cancer and was going to be dead in 6 months, leaving my daughter motherless (the fact that I lost my mind over this was my first symptom.) So I made an appointment with my midwife (to check for any problems), and in the meantime started feeling sleepy and a little nauseated. They gave me a pregnancy test at my insistance (I think the nurse was a little put out with me for insisting) and it was negative. About a week later, I took a home test, and it was really light, but positive. So I took two more over the next few days, and the line got darker with each one. I went back to the midwife and they confirmed it with a blood test. I had no idea that I was pregnant the first time until I took the test (I guess I should have been tipped off by the massive emotional breakdown I had at the office right before I found out but I wasn't), but this time I seemed to know almost immediately. It was strange. Maybe I just knew what to look for, or maybe the symptoms set in sooner because this is my second pregnancy and my body didn't completely have to "retool." Best wishes to you!
