The Big Ten.

According to Baby Center, the top ten pregnancy symptoms are:

10. Tender, swollen breasts
9. Fatigue
8. Implantation bleeding
7. Nausea or vomiting
6. Increased sensitivity to odors
5. Abdominal bloating
4. Frequent urination
3. A missed period
2. Your basal body temperature stays high
1. PROOF: a positive home pregnancy test

Well... I'm on day 27 of my cycle (which is usually 29 days long) and it's been 10 days since I ovulated. And I have about half of these symptoms. Most notably fatigue, bloating, nausea, and frequent urination. Seriously, I look about three months pregnant (but its just water weight) and I have absolutely no energy. I could sleep all day, even though I normally hate naps. And don't even get me started on how many times I have to get up to go to the bathroom. My temperature just spiked up AGAIN today, up to 98.48 from my baseline, which is 97.5 unless it's cold out. No, I'm being serious. I have Reynaud's syndrome, which is a blood circulation disease, and my hands and feet lose virtually all blood flow and turn white, limp, and puffy.
Well... I'm hoping that all of these are good signs. Although I would be really surprised if I were pregnant ALREADY... we haven't tried nearly as long as most. But still. A girl can dream, right?
