This week is my 6th week of pregnancy. Although I’m only 5 weeks.
Does that confuse anyone else? I get it but it still trips me up when I see, “In your sixth week…” on an article or something.
Anyway, this week I’ve forgotten that I’ve been pregnant for most of it. Honestly, except for being tired and hungry, nothing is really different.
::heavenly bells ring::
It’s amazing. I’m still waiting to wake up and want to hurl all over, but so far the worst it gets is just a tad of queasiness where I have to go and lay down. Sometimes I let myself ponder a hyperemesis-free pregnancy and it is wonderful. I know it could happen, but I’m trying not to get my hopes way up until we’re another few weeks in.
I’ve decided to do some of my weekly stats on here, a few are the usual ones that everyone tends to do and some are ones I make-up to remember events that happened. I did this with the twins as well and had so much fun tracking each week. So here they are:
How Far Along: 5 weeks 4 days
Size of baby: Apple seed!
Sleep: Well, not this past week because when we travel, Bella gets sick and then wants to co-sleep/smother us to death. But overall? I’m sleeping ok.
Total Weight Gain: Yeah, we’re not going there yet.
Symptoms: Heartburn like crazy (Cheerios? Really?), slight nausea, boobs hurt, clothes are getting tighter.
Maternity Clothes: Here’s the deal: I busted those pants out the day I found out I was pregnant. And I’ve never looked back.
Go-to eats: Hamburgers, fries, anything with carbs or fat, and milk.
Best moment of the week: Being pregnant for Christmas.
Gender: I keep thinking of this one as a girl, but Sam is convinced it’s a boy. And either way we really don’t care as long as it’s healthy.
What I wish people knew: That this baby isn’t a replacement or an “all better” situation for losing my twins. In fact, this pregnancy often triggers a lot of the emotions that I had repressed after losing them.
What I’m looking forward to: Seeing a midwife at the local birth center next week. Because unless I’m in a coma, you won’t get me to go to a hospital again after last time.
Milestones: 5 weeks in and no major sickness yet!
