Could I be pregnant?

I always get really annoyed by those girls that post on boards wondering if they could be pregnant cause they are tired and their boobs hurt. I don't know! Why are you asking me? Go out and buy a damn test. If you don't believe what the test says, get a freaking beta done. Stop annoying me.

And, no, I'm not pregnant, nor do I think that I'm pregnant. Progesterone really screws with me. I'm sure (or at least hope) that AF is on her merry way and apparently I'm almost out of tampons. I must not be caught unprepared and go to the store tonight (my lining was a 10 if you get what I mean).

As the progesterone leaves my system and my boobs go from DEFCON1 to peace time conditions, I am thankful. I just about couldn't function without a bra on. Oh, and it hurt like hell to take it off. I was like Jennifer Aniston during the last couple seasons of friends. I have to wonder, if my body was used to getting a monthly dose of progesterone would it have bothered me so much? I think my sensitivity must be higher since I have only had exposure to progesterone a couple of times.

Also, my sense of smell gets jacked around every time I have a hormonal change. I could about gag on my male coworkers' cologne right now. Why do they all have to put so much on? Don't they shower and wear deodorant? Proper hygiene eliminates the need to spray stinky crap all over you. One guy was only in for a few minutes this morning and I can still smell it by his office. I can't even walk by another guy's office. He uses the strongest smelling fabric softener I have ever smelled (my mom used to use it so I'm sure I know what it is). It normally makes my eyes water so I'm not risking going any closer than I have to. Days like this I fantasize about sending an office wide email asking people to not wear scents that may be offending or distracting to others.

And to add to the fun, I have had bunch of headaches lately. I would like to pretend that the other day talking to my boss has was the exception, but I have had a throbbing head for the last several days. I don't think it's sinuses. These headaches remind me of my clomid headaches which seems pretty weird to me. I'm avoiding Advil and taking Tylenol and it doesn't seem to be helping.

I'm sorry things are getting all screwy. I've been noticing my utter lack of symptoms and side effects otherwise I would probably be right there with you.

You are going to drive yourself crazy with those boards! Can being crazy mean your pregnant?!? :)

I'm sorry about the headaches and the progesterone side effects. I hope you get AF soon!
