We had a wee argument about it but we got another pee stick. I had an embarrassing moment trying to play charades with the pharmacist before giving up and making WW get it. This one was tiny, also called Orange Test but half the height of the others. Results after the jump.
Sunday is Loi Kratong so we were celebrating today in school. As I understand it this is a festival where you make small floating offerings from banana tree trunks, banana leaves, flowers, candles and joss sticks. Then you float them on the water, asking forgiveness for last years sins and making some wishes for next year. Some also celebrate with the floating lanterns. My favourite part is that couples hold it up and make their wishes together before pushing it into the water together. It’s a very nice, pretty ceremony. And I love an excuse to make wishes for healthy babies.
A lot of the kids and teachers get dressed up in Traditional Thai clothes and then all the years groups from kindergarten to the top of secondary are split into groups and go off into workshops to make Kratongs. It was a lovely slushy day that sat well with my slushy hormones.
here’s my little kratong creation 🙂
- Bloated. Starting to look a like something is going on south of my belly button.
- Tired. Tired. And tired some more.
- Feeling dizzy. I missed one of my usual snack breaks making the Kratongs and felt a little wobbly until I scarfed a yogurt down.
- I’m doing my granny shuffle again because my back is whingeing.
- Peeing a lot (even when there are no pee sticks around).
- Tender boobies.
- Wanting to eat supper (which I haven’t done since I was 12 and going through a growth spurt)
- Inability to settle down and concentrate on anything including books, TV, movies…or work.
At the moment I’m feeling good about all these symptoms. Nothing is too unpleasant so far and they reassure me that my little cell ball is still fighting. We’ll see how long until I start really whining 🙂
1 sleep until beta. Fingers crossed. I think WW is going to freak out if I buy any more pee sticks 😦 I want that strong line!
still fighting against all the odds. Keep battling little one!
