Week 5 Revisited

Happy 12 weeks!  This entry originally written 9/22...

I will admit to stealing borrowing this from another blogger I follow, so credit where credit is due.  

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!
