A stranger told me all about my aura today.

Like Tree7Likes

So I walked into the post office today and grabbed a padded envelope and packaged up my item and stepped in line like any other day at the post office. Out of the corner of my eye, it looked like the lady in front of me was just staring at me. I dismissed it, and then she spoke to me. She asks me, "Do you have a baby in your belly?" I said, "I don't know.. maybe." She asks, "Really? I was debating whether or not to ask you, but thought why not. You have a fuzzy aura about you. Have you had a scare recently?"

What do I make of this? I actually am having a scare this month. lol

Makes me want to run right quick to my neighbor who practices Reikii and ask her about my aura

I'd be running to the chemist to get a pregnancy test kit!
I think that would've been a bit creepy but I guess she was saying something nice so no harm done.

I just find it so weird she phrased it as "Do you have a baby in your belly?" LOL. Whatever happened to just asking if someone was pregnant?

I'm with Starmie -get a test!

I know Allie!! It was kind of cute though. It's too early to test yet, but you better believe I'll be getting one this weekend! It weirded me out so bad, because I've been wondering about it the past couple of days.

Well, we weren't supposed to try until next month... with all the wedding planning, I kinda totally forgot to start my pill!! Oops! So no biggie if I am a month early. I will let you know how it turns out. I'm not holding my breath.

A week and a half before I even realized I might be pregnant for the first time, a co-worker told me I was "absolutely glowing" and she had never seen me like that before. She said she couldn't explain it. Later I realized I'd been a few weeks pregnant when she said that. Creepy! Who knows what they are seeing or picking up on but can't dogs tell if someone is pregnant also? I guess it's possible.

Or maybe you just looked a little puffy or were walking pregnant or something.

Get a test asap bc each week in baby's development is important and you want to make sure you are taking care of yourself and the baby correctly.

That's so interesting spiderlashes!

I may pick up a double pack tonight and save the other one for later if nothing picks up. I'm already on vitamins, but am searching for a better one.. I'm just taking Flintstones w/ iron since I can't swallow huge pills and I have a sensitive stomach. I don't know anything about being pregnant so I'm not sure what I should be doing. Even if I'm not, I need to prepare for next month!

I keep watching my dog to see if he does anything different. Only thing he's done different is starting to sniff my crotch - I rejoiced when we got him and he didn't sniff crotches... now that's out the window! My cat has been more cuddly the past week, but I attributed that to her new food? I dunno.

If you don't know much about being pregnant you should read this or a

similar book (available really cheap in any thrift shop or used book store and in all the regular bookstores) and join a pregnancy board/online group as soon as you find out. There aren't many moms active on this site anymore so probably won't get much feedback here except from just a handful of us. And it's been so long for some of us that we have probably forgetten some things.

Folic acid is also huge when you are pregnant so make sure you are getting enough of that. You really should find a decent prenatal vitamin (not Flintstones). It doesn't have to be great tho bc your gyn will likely prescribe a really good one once you are pregnant.

Does your gyn know you are about to start trying? You should have that discussion w/ him/her before you start, ideally.

My dog never did anything different when I was pregnant...but I have heard some dogs know...I think maybe female dogs?

I actually called my doc's office at work yesterday to ask about prenatals. (This was before the crazy lady at the post office.) When the nurse called me back she told me that a lot of people take the Flintstones.. lol. Apparently a pharmacy at one of our grocery stores has a list of free prenatals, and she told me to ask if there are any chewables on there. I think I will go over there in the next few days and inquire. Doc's office will give a Rx if I need it.

Thanks for the book recommendation. I've been scouting boards to see how active they are, etc. Been lurking on a few, and it's crazy all the things these people have to go through sometimes to try and get pregnant.

Our dog is male. I doubt he will sense much, he's a dufus.

The dog we had when I was pregnant the first time was very much a daddy's boy but while I was pregnant he became more of a mummy's boy, would always be around me, sit with me at night etc. He didn't do it with the second pregnancy though.
I think testing kits can pick things up really early these days so it may show something.

I tested yesterday at lunch and it was negative. If I was, I don't think it would show up until at least this weekend.

At this point I'm thinking I'm not. I thought the timing was right, but it may not have been after all. So that lady was crazy, and we will try next month like planned! But I will probably still test later just to make sure

Ok, I'm definitely not. Did an OPK today and it was positive. I thought it had already happened... unless it happened twice?

So.. she gets my crazy vote! Although I read somewhere that when someone sees that "aura" it could mean it's about to happen or it could happen if you're not careful. So, I'll just chalk it up to that.

I love it when people tell me about my aura. It is interesting. Like PerriP said, a baby in your belly was peobably the way she saw it, and she probably picked up on your thoughts. I completely believe people can do that. There are a ton of stories about toddlers telling their mothers they are pregnant. they will be playing, stop, point and say you have a baby in there and go right back to playing. I wonder if tat is the future readers or if they still pick up on sounds. They are not too far removed from the uterus.

I am really good at picking up on the gender. I see a flash of color and know if someone is having a boy or a girl. I have been doing that since I was a kid and have only been wrong one time. That was with my last nephew. My hopes were showing. I already had 3 and wanted it to be a girl so bad.

Sorry it did not happen this time Six but I would take that as a good sign, and you will have fun trying
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm sorry it didn't happen this time. Sending lots of baby dust to you.

I'm totally fine with not being pregnant! This will make flying on the honeymoon more "enjoyable" for sure... I won't be throwing up!

Fifi, you need to come here and tell me what I will have! Lol. I want a girl really bad and the fiance wants a boy really bad.
