Tambee posted about feeling a strange stomachache as she toured potential wedding sites (a year away). This is what I posted to her and I'd like to put it in my blog too:
Get used to it. *that strange stomach ache*
It's anxiety. It kind of feels achy and you feel far away from yourself and kind of cranky, and edging on nauseous... unable to talk, loosen up and function like you normally do...
About two months from the date you'll start to feel it affecting your life, like you'll feel it when you're not thinking or talking about the wedding. It will seem very strange. It may be accompanied by pain moving upwards (acid reflux). And a loss of appetite. (I had never experienced a loss of appetite in MY WHOLE LIFE - not even when I'm sick - I could always stand to eat a hunk of lasagna!)
It's a standard state for me for the last two weeks now - I wake with it, I have it all day, and if I don't exercise, I feel it as I'm going to sleep. If I do exercise I'm drooping by 9:30. The crazy thing is that the last two days I've woken up at 5:30 AM for no reason and can't sleep.
However this stage is also accompanied with a joy and excitement I've never felt before. I'm twinkling under my skin, I feel this eerie overtired but super excited state that's accompanied with random surges of adrenaline.
My poor fiance is in the same state. We describe it as wrecked. And we share the twilight of our singleness together, knowing we're going through it together.
