Money saving mommy and symptoms

I was wearing my most form fitting jeans today. I kept feeling sort of uncomfortable bloating-ish feelings (not ready to call them cramps). I took off my jeans and am in my PJs, and I'm feeling a little better but not "better." I'm half convinced that the crampy feeling is psychosomatic, and half convinced that it's just early pregnancy bloating/gassy feeling. (Anyone remember that?) I still can't completely blow it off and assume it's nothing.

I consulted Dr. Google on hematomas and pregnancy today. All in all, it doesn't sound like doom. It sounds like many people have them and go through pregnancy without a hitch. However, some do end in miscarriage. Guess that's certainly not a news flash.

That's really not my reason for this post though. I'm writing to tell you that I'm pumped because my awesome hubby (who apparently has way too much time on his hands at work) sent me some links to a few new coupon/deal blogs and I've been checking them out on a daily basis to get ideas. As before, I know most of what they're talking about, but I love the inspiration I'm getting from their savings!

This week at CVS Glade air freshener is on sale for $0.99 each. I had a BOGO coupon, so I got two for $0.99. I also got a bottle of tobasco sauce for $0.19 this week at the grocery store because I had a $1 off coupon. When it comes to Glade, I RARELY buy it, but now I'll be set for the next few years, and I only had to spend a few cents per can rather than "running out" and having to buy it at full price. Pretty much the same goes for tobasco sauce, since we don't go through it very fast, but how could I not??

UPDATE: I checked out the side effects of Progesterone, and the gel and suppositories can cause gas, bloating, and even cramping. That makes me feel a little better, although it still doesn't completely calm my fears.

I don't recall having any cramping early on, but I DO remember the bloating feeling. That seemed to last far too long. It's very uncomfortable.

Kudos on the savings.

I'm so nervous about this baby of yours. Much more nervous than I was about my own in fact. But every day that passes without a real problem is a good thing. Hopefully soon you'll be past the high risk phase. Oh and I did feel crampy bloaty some in the early pregnancy. I just felt not-right a lot.

I haven't done any real couponing in a couple of weeks. The end of the school year is always nuts for us. I'm jealous of the tabasco. My husband loves hot sauce.
