Stupid making me freak out for no reason.

I think I'm going to have to give up the BabyZone site, at least the message boards. These women are really freaking me out. Perhaps this is one case where ignorance truly is bliss?

It's like, getting pregnant is these women's jobs. They're all on baby two, three, six... and most of them have had multiple miscarriages. Part of the reason I guess I was freaking out about having to wait "so long" to see the doctor is because these women have been in to see theirs at 3, 4, 5 weeks. They know their HcG levels, and know if it's doubled or tripled over the course of however many days. They chat about discharge with detailed abandon. They bitch when they have symptoms, and even worse, bitch when they don't.

That's the worst part. They moan and groan and spout of statistics about the likelihood of m/s being lessened the worse your m/s is, so even though they want to complain about it, they secretly relish it. Oh, and God forbid you actually feel okay one day. The world might end.

Well, guess what?

That's right, mine is so minor, it's practically non-existent. Now, I keep telling myself to remember that I don't get PMS symptoms at all, and I'm not a puker. I've done it three times since I was FIVE YEARS OLD, and two of those times were vodka sour related! It's probably okay that I feel fine. Also, I've read that some women don't get those symptoms until their second trimester.

I feel okay. This morning I was mildly nauseous, but nothing major or worth complaining about. My breasts have been sore, but barely so, not to the point where I thought I might cry and they don't even feel that way all the time. I'm a little tired, but not where all I want to do is lay down and sleep. Bubba's being pretty dang kind to me, I think.

I just wanted someplace where I could go and see what other people who were at the same place as me were doing and experiencing, but I didn't expect THIS. BLAH! I think I'll go buy another hpt on the way home just to admire it for a while. I'll get the non-digital one this time so it will last longer.

You are so right about that, once I went there to find some info on conceiving and stuff and left freaking out!!! Really over the top.
Awesome that you feel good and have minor symptoms.

if you think about it maybe the world is saying to them stop complaining or we are going to take away what you want. I guess those ladies haven't noticed the pattern.

I'm coming to see your blog from 2Peas. I recommend NOT reading those baby zone message boards. I have had 3 kids and have never puked ( unless I had the stomach flu) and with my 3rd I only had to eat a few crackers one morning. My DH looked at me like I was crazy. Find some mom friends IRL. And it's true -- you don't see your MD until 10+ weeks.
Okay now to check out what you did with you green 3 tier basket from Target.
best wishes with the pregnancy.I was a happy PG woman.
