If this is it
You know what is a bad idea? Trying new things during the two week wait.
A few weeks ago, after some time at a bar, our friends J and N, our rommate, K the Canadian, and Pot and I decided to have gluten free January. People who are not actually allergic to gluten say they felt better when they stopped eating gluten so we made an agreement to try it out. Unfortunately, this means that I am paying a lot of attention to how my body feels. Does it feel different? If so, am I pregnant or is it the lack of gluten?
I’ve been wanting to take a yoga class and our Parks and Rec had a free class tonight so Pot and I went before I decided whether or not to sign up for the 11week class. Now, I should add that I am the least flexible person in the world. I’m debating whether to sign up because tonight pushed my limits but I figure that some flexibility will be helpful for my eventual plans of pushing a baby out of my vagina in a tub in my living room. I struggled most when the crazy man had us do multiple lunges. I had to lay down because I very nearly vomited. Was the nausea because I am pregnant or because I have no done lunches since I was maybe 12?
After month one I have done a good job of not symptom watching during the two week wait. This time that is out the window. Up until yesterday, 6 dpo, I was 70/30. 70% sure this is it, 30% sure this is not. Last night when I went to bed those numbers shifts to be about 40/60. Then today I had dull lower back pain all day. I get a lot of lower back pain but this feels different. But does it feel different or do I just want it to feel different?
I am hoping that I will feel it one way or another in the next couple days. I don’t want to test until after my period is late which would be at least the 18th. That’s a long ways away and gives me plenty of time for my hopes to diminish. I just hope that if this is it my body let’s me know. So yo body, if this is it, please let me know. If this is baby time, please say so.
