Well, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and start tracking how things are progressing. Sorry if you think this is cliche, but this blog is like a journal, and I would love to be able to look back on this later and remember what was going on. So here goes...
How far along: 6w1d
Size of baby: sweet pea
Physical symptoms: sore boobies, some nausea, weird pain in my rib cage, exhaustion
Weight gain/loss: I actually lost 2 lbs, because my body is still adjusting after IVF and trying to get back to normal.
Maternity clothes: I actually bought maternity leggings because all my regular ones cut into my tummy. I do have to use the rubber band trick on most of my pants, and I definitely have to wear baggy clothes or else people think I'm 3 months pregnant already!
Stretch marks: Not yet
Sleep: I fall asleep fast, but I wake up a lot to pee during the night and also because I have some weird-ass dreams. I toss and turn a lot due to being uncomfortable.
Best moment since last week: Our first ultrasound yesterday! We got to see and hear the heartbeat, which was amazing.
Movement: Way too early.
Cravings: Not yet. I'm hungry all the time though, and almost everything sounds good. I do really want a cold turkey sandwich, but that is probably just because I'm trying to stay away from lunchmeat for the most part, so I just want what I can't have.
Gender: Still way too early.
Labor signs: Way too early!
Belly button: Innie
What I miss: Alcohol! I know that sounds awful, but a margarita just sounds so awesome to me all the time, and a virgin just doesn't cut it.
What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound in 2 weeks :)
