Is it possible?

The evidence:

  • I inhaled half a block of chocolate and most of a packet of BBQ chips yesterday and was still hungry when I finished.
  • I'm about a kilo heavier than I was three days ago.
  • I've gone up a bra size in the past 24 hours.
  • I wanted to kill the man spruiking outside K-Mart yesterday because he kept using the phrase "Christmas Bear" ("Look, here's the K-Mart Christmas Bear; only $10! Do you want to say hello to the Christmas Bear? You know what would be a great gift this year? The K-Mart Christmas Bear!")
  • When I got to work this morning I discovered that someone had been into my office (not unusual - I work in a church so people are always in here on Sundays) and moved things around - in particular, my sticky tape was sitting on the windowsill instead of back on my desk. I was so enraged as I rounded up my stationery etc and moved it all back that for a brief moment I seriously considered looking for another job.
The verdict:
I don't know... do you think it's possible I'm a teensy bit pre-menstrual??

Soooooooooo glad it wasn't me who moved the sticky tape :)

No, Manda has confessed to it! But if it weren't the sticky tape it would have been something else... the tape was just a handy excuse for my completely unreasonable rage. My hormones are having a temporary-insanity-causing party at the moment. Yay, womanhood!

The only time I go up a bra size is when a baby is coming... :-O

Femina said...

Well, unless they've changed the rules on how you get that way, I'm sure I'm not pregnant. I go up a cup size every month for a couple of days... well, maybe only half a size. My regular bras, which normally fit beautifully, suddenly become VERY tight and uncomfortable and there's a lot of side-spillage.

It's a grim time of month isn't it?

Hippomanic Jen said...

Yep, I get either homicidal or weepy, neither is very good for my professional or pastoral care personae. One thing is for certain, ignore it and it'll go away.

I also disagree with the old wives tales they tell about getting pregnant. Been married for 7.5 years - you know what they say about that causing pregnancy and babies - it's all a lie.

Femina said...

@ Givinya - I think it's a bit more grim for the people around me, actually... it can be very disconcerting when I shriek "Did you leave the lid off my pen? Why? Dear Lord, WHYYYYYY????" and then burst into tears.

@ H-Jen - you don't get pregnant from being married. It's caused by sitting on public toilet seats. Did your mother teach you nothing??

Swift Jan said...

Hmm yes sou just might be a little hehe

Glad it wasn't me who moved the sticky tape also!! LOL

Queenie Jeannie said...

LOL! You poor hun!! And yes, I'd say that is very likely.

Saying hi from SITS!!! I'm nice; I always have chocolate and always respect personal space!

Isn't strange how these symptoms can easily be confused with pregnancy? I could have wrote this, except the tape part as I am a sahm now. ;)
