OFF TOPIC--TMI WARNING!!!!

(wow, that font is really hard to read in all caps. It says OFF TOPIC and TMI WARNING...in case you can't read it.)

Well, I know one can't really be off topic when we aren't in the middle of a conversation; and on my blog pretty much anything goes...but this time, well I just don't usually talk about this topic.

I am so excited that I am NOT PREGNANT. Whew! I was scared. I am having the worse pregnancy symptoms. I am sore, irritable, exhausted, nauseated many times throughout the day, I get this awful mouth taste after eating, I can't stand the thought of chocolate. Trust me, that only happens to me when I am pregnant. But I am not really sick. No need for sympathy at all. Just feeling...strange...you know?

So I did some googling. Did you know that other women feel pregnant too when going into perimenopause?

Oh...and that it can last about 5 years??!!

WHAT?! Oh heaven help us all.

Ok, so that's what's going on in the life of your hillbilly friend. Shall I link this to Marcia's Minutes for Me? Naw, probably not.

Wonder if I will lose more followers after this post? I've lost some recently and not sure why. I think I need to lighten up like I used to be. Consider this your first light hearted post!

So...did you feel pregnant, are you feeling pregnant, do you want to feel pregnant, or don't even say the word? State your status ladies!

LOL!! Right there with ya! However, I'm just irritable and TARD! You know that's past tired. And the 20 extra lbs that I have just will not come off. Darned hormones.

You are right my beautiful wife... TMI!

Belinda said...

Not much is out of bounds with friends! I suppose this is another way that God chose to deal with that pesky Eve.....

Hang in there - this too shall pass. I went thru the 'change' at 32 - yes, very early - and I never experienced any of those pesky side affects, but I can certainly understand them.

First being 54, I can tell you that you have many days that you will feel a bit sickish at different times as your body changes---it helps to complain about it! LOL they everyone understands that you are not feeling good again.
Second, I heard that some of our followers from blogs other than blogger aren't able to follow us thru' the "Join this site" part and have to follow by email.
So over the last few weeks we will loose a few of them that way but we will gain them back over time... I think there will be a change with the system.
Third, I am so happy that you are not pregnant!
Forth, LINK it up to Minutes for ME!!!
Have a great day!

Poor you! I think hubs should spoil you to compensate :) For the whole five years, yes! :lol:

Oh My Tonya, I am going through full blown menopause complete with hot flashes, sometimes 10+ a day, but most days its not that many, hard to adjust the covers when my husband is cold and I am burning hot, other then that and the weight that will not come off (I exercise 4 days a week, aqua fit, biking,and Pilates) plus I run around the house 3-3 times a day playing with the very active cats we have.

I do not recall a lot of Peri menaupause symptoms though...

Keeping your sense of humor at this time is a very good thing IMHO

Take care

Celine said...

I don't feel pregnant any more since Baby Girl was born on Christmas day... But this doesn't sound like something to look forward to! Good luck, hope you feel better very soon!

Linda said...

Oh Tonya, you do make me laugh!! A pregnancy at our age can be a great thing but for me! Heck NO!! I like my freedom :) I had THAT scare a few months back and like you was told it's the beginning of the "change". I actually was happy about it :) I hate being cold so hot flashes will be just fine and dandy with me. haha Oh and if I feel sluggish, I just have a cup of coffee or tea. Fixes me right up :)

Sunnybec said...

OMG at may age perish the thought that I would be pregnant! It is a bind and yep it does last quite a long time...hang on in there girl you are not alone!! xx

Angie said...

THAT WAS HYSTERICAL!!
Hey we're all Ladies here. . .
OH and if I were pregnant right now you'd be able to hear my crying all the way at your house.

Patty@Granma's said...

Oh My, the things you youngsters say outloud!

I have 'lost' my followers also, the whole batch! Somedays they are ther, pics and all, and then they are gone again....

Snoodles said...

This is hilarious, and no, it's not TMI...I think we all have had those "oh my, how many days late am I?" months, and many of us have had the "oh my word, at my age?" thoughts. LOL Yep, it will last a while, but hey, we all have to deal with it, so humor is absolutely the best way to handle it! :) I've learned that the internet is my best friend for research, and that nothing is really normal or abnormal, as far as our hormones go!

Lynda said...

Funny. I thought I would never need a coat in my life again. Now I actually wear a sweater in the cold. Yippee! I still wonder why why why it takes so many years to get through it.

Michelle said...

Thanks for sharing it's not easy sometimes to go through these changes and I think it helps to have some support and know that we are there for each other... hold in there girl!
Hugs

Carrie P. said...

that is very interesting. I say NO! to all.

I'm actually holding my breath at the end of each month hoping to be pregnant. My hubby and I just got married last august and can't wait to have a little baby. For now I'm just making ton's of baby things and waiting somewhat less than patiently.

QuiltSue said...

Been there, done that. I went through exactly the same thing. Only trouble was, I was only 40, so didn't think it could be the menopause at first! I can so relate to the feeling of relief when you find out what the "problem" is.

KatieQ said...

Been there, done that, don't want to do it again. That applies to both pregnancy and the whole menopause thing. Yes, peri-menopause was about 5 years for me. I am now 63. Other than having my metabolism slow down and make it difficult to lose weight and chin hairs, once it's over, life is good.

debbie said...

Well, I want to become a follower. Your blog is great! I am 50 and finished going through menopause at 47. A little young but I was ready to be done with the whole thing.

Love your attitude, laughter is the best way to handle it. I had my fifth child at 40, so I can completely understand your point of view. I wouldn't. Trade him for anything,but I sure could use some extra energy.lol

Dumb hormones - pregnancy lasts 9 months but hot flashes are forever! At least it seems that way, THIRTEEN YEARS post-menopause....
