I think I've posted once before on here about having mock early pregnancy symptoms since I started taking the Metformin. During the week before I'm supposed to start my period I experience nausea off and on, tenderness in my breasts, fatigue, and occasionally some mild cravings for sweets, salty foods (or just comfort foods in general), and the lack of normal bleeding. I started getting used to the monthly insanity, but this time is different. I'm supposed to be getting my period this weekend so I was expecting the mild nausea and all that. I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it has been these past few days! Certain foods and smells are tipping the scale into me actually feeling like I'm going to be sick. I've had to stop mid-sentence because a wave of nausea hit me and I needed to start taking slow, deep breaths until it subsided. The tenderness isn't any worse than usual, nor were the cravings. I say 'were' because I have seemingly adopted a chicken diet with a side order of dill pickle snacks. Now, I will crave chicken every so often, but after eating it my craving goes away. This has gone on for the past 4 days or so! And while I enjoy having the occasional dill pickle on the side with a sandwich or burger, I cannot remember ever wanting to snack on them like they were going out of style! My husband brought me a pickle and a few minutes later I was asking for another, then another, then told him to just bring me the jar. I only stopped eating them because I started feeling sick again! I also have this bloated/fullness feeling in my stomach that I don't recall having before. I know, I know... I should just take a HPT already but I'm afraid of finding out the results and being disappointed again. I'm going to wait until Monday or Tuesday before I do take the test, just looking for a little encouragement and support while I drive myself nuts in the meantime!
