I think I was dehydrated yesterday.
I had avoided drinking much on sunday - because of our plumbing issue, I didn't want to have to use the bathroom too much. And yesterday I guess I didn't have that much water either. And that headache was so awful.
Well I drank a bunch of water last night, and really didn't pee very much at all. So that's probably a sure sign that I needed the water. And the headache got much better, and is almost gone today. Also today I got on the scale and was up two pounds from yesterday - so that has to be all water!
I guess that's a valuable lesson learned - I'll try to be better about keeping up on the water. I feel so much better today.
I'm having a lot of lower abdomen discomfort today - I'm guessing it's just round ligament pain, or just abdominal muscles stretching - but if it doesn't go away I'll call the doc.
I told one friend at work yesterday. She knew we had been struggling to get pregnant, and knew about some of my failed cycles. I had kept pretty quiet for a while, just told her we had taken a break. I knew she would be thrilled for me, but didn't want to burden her with having to keep a secret at work. So I finally told her and she was thrilled - she almost thought she was going to cry. She said she had no idea - that she hadn't even remotely suspected. So I guess I've been doing a decent job of hiding it. I asked her if she had heard any speculation - if people were starting to wonder - and she said not at all. So that's good. She promised to keep it a secret until I'm ready to break the news broadly.
And the big news today - my sister found out she is having a girl! Very exciting! (sorry to tease - you didn't actually think that was my news did you??)
