I have to admit I feel as unpregnant as I did three months ago. I would give anything to feel something besides some cramping, which has also pretty much disappeared.
Earlier I mentioned breast tenderness? Gone.
I understand that a majority of symptoms do not manifest until closer to six weeks, but let’s hypothesize here for just a moment.
Let’s say that the ever illusive hCG was increasing as it should. Since my initial levels started off higher, wouldn’t it then make sense that if I was going to feel any symptoms, I would feel them earlier?
So of course I am now justifying the reason I am not feeling anything is because there’s going to be nothing to feel.
Much suckage would ensue.
On the other hand, I remember Wolf. That sly embryo kept me forever at the edge of my seat in a pregnancy-induced schizophrenia:
“I didn’t get pregnant. It’s over.”
“I’m pregnant, but it’s over.”
“The beta didn’t increase. It’s over.”
“The beta increased, but didn’t double. Now it’s over.”
“Wow, the beta increased in less than 40 hours! It can’t be over!”
“Empty gestational sac. It’s really over.”
“Hey! Now there’s a heartbeat! I can finally be ‘cautiously optimistic’ and enjoy the idea of not having the crappy symptoms!”
“Ooops. Enlarged gestational sac. Yep. This time it’s over.”
Hence, the name Wolf (The Girl Who Cried Pregnant).
Only three more days until the third beta. At least I can be thankful it’s not another six days, right?
Is valium bad during a pregnancy, even I don’t mix it with alcohol?
