Toughing it Out ... Bondi Style
I had to get away ... going MENTAL. I know you all know what I'm talkin 'bout. So, I headed INto the APEC fiasco that is Sydney this weekend, and am firmly ensconced at my sister Tee's house, Bondi Beach. Proudly showing her my blue veiny boobs today, she swiftly pulls her tits out and says "Mate, check out MY blue veins". She's not remotely close to being preggers, so I thanked her for crushing my dreams in one fell swoop. George Bush is in town ... we watched him refer to us as "Austrians" on the news tonight. Laughed our heads off.
I'm getting used to the 2WW - and have found myself realising that the past week has been so huge, I'm glad to have some time to process it all. And as the uber-cool Chicklet said, "enjoy thinking it might have worked".
I'm not touching my tummy much. Just taking it easy. I really needed to settle the fuck down, actually. I feel a bit numb. Wondering if certain things could possibly be "real" pregnancy symptoms, even though I know it's so early - is there anything that can't be attributed to progesterone? High temp, constipation, tiredness, blue vein boobies, chin hairs, moodiness ... ALL of these can be blamed on progesterone!
(Except chin hairs - I've always had them).
