Half Way There!
I am 6 weeks and 1 day pregnant today — doesn’t seem possible that it’s been six weeks since my egg retrieval. I am half way through my first trimester — can you believe it?!?!?! I guess time flies when you’re focusing on getting and, now staying, pregnant! I am feeling very positive about this beautiful Baby, and am looking forward to Tuesday’s ultrasound so we can see another picture of our precious little one. As for pregnancy symptoms, I am super tired all the time and love taking afternoon naps; I am very sensitive to smells and food actually tastes differently — spicy food is more spicy and some foods don’t taste good at all; I have crazy dreams; and, I have to pee all the time. I wake up every morning feeling hung over, have terrible indigestion (thank god for TUMS!), and also feel nauseous quite often, especially if I am over-hungry and/or over-tired, but am not throwing up (thank goodness).
I love having pregnancy symptoms — it makes everything feel more real. The only annoying thing is that I am constantly comparing my pregnancy symptoms to what they were like the day before. I want them to keep getting worse because I think that will mean that my pregnancy is healthier. I don’t know if this is crazy, but it makes sense to me :).
And, now I am off to take a nap.
Baby dust to all!
