Four Musicians and A Few Symptoms

Sunday night my Mom and I hit up a local bar to see one of our favorite singers – Edwin McCain. The show opened with a local artist that I really liked – Erick Baker . His voice reminds me a lot of Damien Rice. I bought his CD and got to talk to him for a little while. I am a big supporter of local music so go check him out if you want. You can hear the song I liked the most here . Edwin of course had a great show and we sat right up front. We see him every time he comes to town if at all possible but we rarely get to speak to him. This time he came outside after the show and talked to everyone and took pictures and such. Of course my Mom was right up front and was just so excited to get a picture. I really love hanging out with her we had a great time.

That is two musicians down....

If you have been reading here long you might have noticed I am not a big symptom watcher. I find that it is hard for me to really notice little things and then when I do I talk myself out of it. I will admit this has made things a wee bit easier on me than I think some wonderful ladies have it. However the last week or so I have noticed a few things and last night I had a big one -
We were out having sushi with friends and I ordered a Tamango (egg) Nigeri. I’ve eaten this many a time and normally love it. However last night I bit into and in about .25 seconds nausea kicked. It took me a while to get that one bite down and recover. After a few minutes it seemed to go away so I pushed it aside and tried something else. I had a few more bites of dinner but I couldn’t get passed the nausea feeling. I’ve had nausea before but it always start with my stomach hurting first. I have never had this happen so it really stood out to me.
I did take a HPT yesterday morning (CD 26) and got a BFN. For some reason in my head I felt like I was later on in the cycle then I am so it really was just a wasted test. And since we have been taking it easy I did not track my OV this month so I am not sure what DPO I am. Based on my last few cycles I range from 28 to 33 days so I will try to hold on to hope and test on Friday (CD 30) if AF does not show up first. I should wait longer but we have a blood drive on Friday and I want to give if I can.

(as I’m writing out this blog I am feeling a bit lightheaded…..see this is what happens when I try to symptom watch!!!)

Now for two more....

On a pretty fun note, I’m going to go back to dinner. My husband and I were out to dinner last night with one of our favorite couples having sushi. We go to this restaurant often and lately it has become a pretty trendy place – good food and cheap. Last night was just a lot of the same and then in walks Taylor Swift. Now I am not a teeny bopper and do not have young children but I am not ashamed to admit that I like her music. I think she is a good role model for young girls and that is normally rare on the celebrity front. Also with her was Haley Williams the (used to be) lead singer of Paramore. We dined and since the restaurant cleared out by the time we were leaving my bestie and I ran by their table to say hi. They were both very nice and did not seem (hopefully) annoyed that we bothered them. Taylor even stuck out her hand and introduced herself. We have a few celebrities living in town but this is the first time I’ve been out and about and ran into someone so current.

So since this week has stared out so nice I would like to keep this going. For the remainder of this week I am hoping for –
1. A missed AF and a Positive test
2. A job offer from the position I interviewed for last week
