For other women, getting up 4 times in the middle of the night to urinate means she’s pregnant. For you, peeing multiple times means you drank too much liquid before bed.
Why does our bodies continue to play tricks on us? Each month we are tricked into believing we’re pregnant. We feel excited, then feel disappointed, only to fall for the same trick next month.
You just peed 6 times in 3 hours (you know, you counted), your mouth has a strange metallic taste, and you burped 23 times since breakfast. These MUST be early pregnancy symptoms! You have strange gas pains in your lower abdomen and you are nauseated from the smells in your kitchen. Last night, you spent most of the night running to the toilet to pee. You thought back to your last drink and realized that you only had half a glass of juice with dinner. A little ray of hope tells you that you might be pregnant this time.
Stop torturing yourself already!
You peed a lot because you are nervous, you taste metallic from sitting in front of the computer all day, you keep burping because you ate a burrito and a bowl of bran flakes for breakfast, your ’strange’ gas pains are not strange, oh constipated one, and you are nauseous from the smell in your kitchen because you haven’t washed the dishes!
You are just a gal who happens to have pregnancy symptoms without the pregnancy, and that takes a special talent.
