Going Crazy - October 20

This is a follow-up to your reply to my other question.... It was under the topic "Impossible, right?" Viv, I started getting cramps late yesterday afternoon and lasted the whole night until I finally took an Advil. I still have slight cramps today. I feel as if I have my period (which I don't). I'm also feeling kind of bloated. This could be a sign that I'm actually NOT pregnant, right? I am getting my period next week Thursday after all, so I'm probably just PMSing a week early, right? And the more I think about it, all those other "symptoms" could have other explanations. The headaches, constant peeing and gas could be because of the cold weather we've been having over here, and my sluggishness could just be because I'm tired from work.As for the queasiness, that was just one night. So I'm most probably stressing over nothing, right? This is not something that was planned. And while the better part of me will be thrilled to death to be given such a blessing when others are having such a hard time getting pregnant, right now I'm more scared than anything. I'm not married and although I've wanted a baby since I was a kid, this isn't the way I want it to happen. I've always wanted to be a Mrs. when I have kids, not a Ms.

I can relate to the Mrs./Ms. bit. GC, you're going to have to relax. What will be will be. Google ... pregnancy antibiotics pill ... and you will learn that the a__sociation with pill failure is not as conclusive as many of us believe. Which said, you need to accept that the symptoms you have are compatible with pregnancy, even if it turns out to be something else. I would love to correspond with someone from the old country.

P.S. Advil and other ibuprofen a___lgesics are not recommended for pregnant women. Tylenol is preferable.

 

Going Crazy - October 20

Thanks, Viv. You're right, I am going to have to relax. There's nothing I can do now but wait til next week when my period is due. I know I may be over-reacting, but I'm just scared. It has nothing to do with maturity (I'm 25, I love kids and have lots of experience with them) or even financial reasons. Yes, I know kids are expensive, but people manage all the time. I know if I am pregnant, then I will also. I have a job and a supportive family. I guess I'm just scared of the outcome. While I may be modern in some ways (obviously), I'm still pretty old-fashioned when it comes to marriage and stuff. And I don't want commitment like that from anyone because of a pregnancy. Oh, well. Like you said, "What will be will be". Thanks again, and I will keep you posted. :)
