Sitting Arrangements

(a rant)

Every time it happens and every time I get upset by it. Many times previously I tried picking a seat before. This time I thought I'd go with the flow, let them be seated and only then find a seat. But then sister tried to arrange who sits where, and again.. These are a couple and they just have to sit together (even though they see each other every day.. I really don't get what's the big deal, why is it so holy that they sit together), and then that's a mother with a little child, and she just has to sit near her baby and that has to be over there. I know it makes sense and all, but it kind of feels that since I am single and childless, that I can be shoved anywhere, and that I have to compromise because I am of less importance. I'm sorry if this may sound stupid. I know it is, but it gets to me every time.

Anyway just a rant, during my usual break I have to take in these family things. Back to desert (cheese cake!).

I'm sure this mild period "pain" I have, not really cramps, just a very mild feeling of a due period, and all the thoughts of is it it or is it just another period on its way. I mean it can't be a period, can it? I am on support, so I shouldn't be getting a period, right? But then it can't be a pregnancy sign, don't know but it really doesn't feel so. And the boobs. Long lost that feeling of sensitivity I had the other day [well it was after an HSG injection + progesterone supplement + estrogen. kind of no wonder..], but still not completely "regular", but then again progesterone does have that effect, so it really means nothing. And maybe I should test, oh I just want to test, can't I just have a test?? (had an HSG shot last Monday, so no, I probably can't test, unless I want to see a false positive..). Anyway, this all is probably making me extra emotional..

And S h a n a T o v a :-)

I totally get the seating chart thing!! Totally! I try to prep myself before such events and laugh it off. It's tough though.

And those cramps? Could be a very good thing! I've read about lots of women who had cramping, thought they were getting AF but were in fact pregnant!

Fingers crossed!!

My family and I call that "sitting in Soho" which came from a Bat Mitzvah where the single, childless cousins were seated at the kids table instead of at an adult table. The ones my age. As in, I was at one table and they were at another. People need to realize how their rational actions make other people emotionally feel.

I like Lollipop's comment. Sorry about the seating arrangements. It sounds frustrating. Hoping for you. I know the cramping can go either way. It could be a very good sign. Good luck.

I TOTALLY felt like I was getting my period when I was pregnant with the boy. I had cramps for a week before AF was due... hoping this is a good sign for you.

I also felt exactly like I was getting my period. So sure that is what it was I didn't test until the night before my blood test (16 dpo). My fingers are crossed.

Kate said...
