Thank you to all of you who took the time to comment on my last post and to send me emails. Your support and understanding really mean a lot to me.
I was a little hesitant to share my feelings here because I realize there are likely some of you reading who would love to find yourselves unexpectedly pregnant, either with a first child or another child, and I know that, for someone in that place, a post like the one I shared yesterday would probably be difficult to read. I do apologize to anyone who fits that description who may have been offended.
I woke up this morning with some mild nausea and smell aversion. Probably a reassuring sign in relation to increasing hormone levels but also an unpleasant harbinger of what's to come.
Thus far, I have had no other symptoms indicating that I am either pregnant or miscarrying. I have been tired, but I am often tired. I've had no spotting, no cramps, nothing noteworthy. Even with the minor symptoms this morning, if I didn't know I was pregnant, I probably would have assumed that I'd eaten something yesterday that disagreed with me or that I was getting a migraine (mine are often, though not always, accompanied by nausea).
We shall see what will happen. I am doing my best not to think too much about what is going on in my uterus, and truth be told, as busy as I am these days, it's pretty easy to forgot about.
