I will admit to
I thought it would be fun to document this pregnancy this way. With Addy, I didn't keep much track other than my old blog, and I didn't even come clean there until 12 weeks or so. I did start a journal for Addy which I still update (when I have time) to this day. The first entries are "Dear Baby" since we didn't have a name. I love looking back on them to see how things were going.
I made my doctor appointment for my first check next week. Since it's so early, things don't really seem real yet. Nothing's really going on other than some slight nausea and a wee bit of cramping. Oh, and being tired. All. The. Time. That never really went away with Addy so I don't expect this to be any different.
The nurse called me yesterday to get some info and made my official due date May 24. C is just happy that it's close to our anniversary so he doesn't have to remember a new date!
Ok, here we go!
How far along?: 5 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: None of note.
The Bump: Hopefully non-existent at this point. I'm completely terrified of showing early, before I'm ready to tell people.
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: My first doctor appointment! I just want it confirmed and to make it real!
Maternity Clothes: None yet, though I have been wearing my smaller sized pants more often knowing that they won't fit much longer. I have a range of sizes to work through before switching to full on maternity clothes.
Symptoms: Tired, tired. I almost fell asleep in a meeting yesterday. In my defense, it was after lunch. Night classes are going to be the worst! A small amount of nausea but really nothing big. A little cramping, but same story. Just normal aches and pains.
Belly Button in or out?: In. It stayed in the whole time with Addy and it better stay that way this time too!
Food Cravings/Aversions: I have been on a buffalo sauce kick lately but that's about it. Since it's cooling off and fall is beginning, I'm getting into baking mode again.
What I miss: Being able to watch a movie all the way through, but that's actually nothing new.
Milestones: Just the first doctor's appointment!
