Last night I googled. More than once.
Yep, I broke my own promise not to let myself get dragged into the whole symptom googling but I couldn't help it! I had a bleeding nose. Well, rather I was just sitting at the computer last night and suddenly blood started dripping out of it. And for no reason! Sure, my nose has been blocked, but not enough to need to blow it and agitate anything so I posted on FB and joked I was going to google 'bleeding nose pregnancy symptom'. Except then I found out it actually, genuinly CAN be an early pregnancy symptom! I held out for about 10 minutes and then madly googled 'bleeding nose, cramping pregnancy symptoms?'. I read for about 5 minutes before guiltily clicking off and kicking myself for giving in. The only thing I gained from that little exercise was to make myself more nervous than I was before! Yesterday I would have said I was 90% sure AF was on her way. Today . . . I have no idea again. It doesn't help that the nurse called me yesterday just as a courtesy call to see how I was feeling and when I told her I had had cramping, she said it means nothing. Aaaaggghhh! I just want a baby. I want to finally cross that finish line with everyone else who crossed it 2 years ago. Who are crossing it now for a 2nd (and even 3rd!) time since I started TTC. Please?! My current favourite fantasy is imagining myself being able to type those three letters: BFP. And have them typed about myself. Not, 'Congratulations on your BFP' to someone else, but 'I got my BFP'.
So, so far (just to drive you all crazy!) my symptoms are:
* AF type cramping
* Heaviness feeling in abdomen
* Blocked nose (not runny, just stuffy)
* Random bleeding nose for no reason
* Dehydrated and thirsty all the time
BUT, I also have no tiredness or sore boobs or weird veins or nausea which seem to be the main theme in early pregnancy symptoms. I don't know what to think!
