Check

Reassuring symptoms checklist:

-Fatigue. Yes. I am sleeping so hard I barely even dream anymore. And when I DO dream...

-Weird pregnancy dreams. Yep, already had one. Involving my ex and a strip club, so that fulfills BOTH caveats of the weird pregnancy dreams rule- sudden memories of exes or bizarre sexual elements! Well done, hormones!

-Toothpaste suddenly tastes WAAAY too strong. CHECK. As soon as I brush I feel the strong need to eat something to get that gaggy, gritty taste out of my mouth.

-Bras suddenly feel like torture devices. Actually, also the lack of bras. This is the most comforting one to me right now because this isn't something I've ever experienced much in the past except when I was on progesterone supplements... Which makes me hopeful that maybe it's my OWN progesterone causing this symptom. That would be quite novel! Sarah, producing a normal amount of a normal pregnancy-related hormone?!

I never thought I would live to see the day but, "Yay for boob tenderness!!!"
Seriously though, fingers, toes and eyes crossed over here :)

Woo hoo!! Totally remember the tortured boobs. Even water hitting them in the shower was awful!
Go Progesterone! Go Sarah!

YAY HORMONES! (The only time we may every sing their praises). I hear you on the bra thing... try some tanks with shelf bras. Yes, they do resort in the bizarre looking and completely unflattering uni-boob, but they're a heck of a lot more comfortable than the torture devices.

And oh, the pregnancy dreams... girl, they can completely wack you out. Hope you continue to get good rest!

Hey, it changed over here.

Anyway, hooray for reassuring symptoms.

I was just thinking about you today (first time I've been online today). You know you have to check in with us every few days, please, even if just to say all is well.

I hope your boobs continue to ache with the power of a hundred burning suns. Or, you know, something like that.

The worse I feel, the more reassured I am. Go, you!
