Yes, i am a nervous NELLY about this pregnancy. I think all who have suffered IF are right? I just may be a bit more NUTS than the others of you.

I had a SHARP pain in my lower right side in the middle of the night that lasted about 30 seconds. It woke myself and DH up.

OF COURSE I called my gyn office this a.m.(after my positive $TREE test of course) and was promptly told it is TOTALLY NORMAL and just ligaments stretching out to make room for baby. She also told me that I also needed to get a flu shot when I am in the office Monday for my beta. I guess I will although I've never had one before.

I know you all must think I am COO COO FOR COCOA PUFFS to be testing every day but, it gets even better with my looniness ladies. In order to get pregnant, I had a surgery in August. My belly has never quite UNSWOLE itself from then AND all the hormone shots I take daily have made my abdomen a bit bigger. We were out yesterday and my biggest pair of jeans was DIGGING INTO MY GUT.

SO, you guessed it, at 3w5d pregnant I went to MOTHERHOOD MATERNITY and got a pair of jeans and a sweat outfit. DON'T JUDGE PEEPS! I know I'm nuts but they fit like butter and let my swollen gut breathe!!!!! If you've never been in there, they strap a fake belly pillow on you when you try the clothes on-so unbelievable.

Then I cried ALL THE WAY HOME in the car telling DH how I had just longed for the day to actually just buy a pair of these and just go into one of these stores. When I was pregnant 19 years ago, I never would have been able to afford to go in a maternity store. I wore sweats and big shirts!


PS-I'll be exactly 4 weeks tomorrow in case you wondered LOL!


  1. I don't think you're nuts at all! If it were me, I'd be takin' tests all the time! LOL! :-)

  2. I think you are adorable. I too long to go into one of those stores and will probably do the same as you when I get my BFP. Congrats on 4 weeks!

  3. You are too cute!!! You're not crazy at all!

    PS... Do a little online reading about the pros & cons of flu shots before you roll up your sleeve.

  4. I can't wait to buy maternity either. I may start wearing them the first month too. Just because I can!!! Good for you!

  5. Awesome, awesome, awesome! God is awesome! Yay! I am guessing it is twins (cause they told us at the IVF clinic that HPT don't usually work that well that early on!) That must mean your numbers are HIGH! Yay! I will keep praying!

  6. I am so happy for you!!! I am glad that you have had an easier time finding jeans than me!!! I just have my one pair that fit!!! Also, I still fit into my "regular" skirts with elastic waists at 26 weeks- I wore one today!!!


  7. Nope not nuts at all! I hate that the injections make us bloated. And when you're PG the first couple of weeks you bloat too. Glad you found comfortable jeans...

    BTW...if you POAS you should share each and everyone of them. Let us waiting in the wings live through you ;)

  8. I showed early with my embie twins; and bought maternity clothes early too. I think part of it was just wanting to, and part of it was I was uncomfortable in my other clothes.

    BTW, when you get to 10 weeks; I don't know if you know this or not, but you can rent a fetal heart monitor so you can listen to your babies heartbeats every day. I did that and it made me feel SOOO much better!!
