Today I am 5+2 pregnant. My plan is to these updates each week on Friday when my week turns over, but you know....life kinda gets in the way.
Here is an update of my 5th week of pregnancy.
I told my husband, along with my mother I was pregnant when I was 4 weeks. I told my mom right away because when I had the MC last year, she told me no matter what she wants to know when I am pregnant again, so she can be there for me if needed.
I have felt nauseous this last week, mostly once I got to work, which is about 2 hours after getting up.
I am crampy, but nothing bad. Feels almost like someone has a bunch of ropes attached to my insides, and they are being pulled; sometimes all at once, sometimes at random times.
I've had heartburn for years already, so this is not new to me. What seems different is that it seems like the heartburn has been travelling more north than before. There are times when I am feeling the burn more in my throat instead of just my chest.
My boobs hurt! Not as much as I thought they would, which I am uber thankful for. My nipples always hurt, but the boobs really only hurt when I take my bra off. Stairs + no bra = NO FUN!
I cant sleep properly. Sleep for a few hours, then up for a while, then sleep, then up, then sleep.....etc etc. It has made the 12 hour work days seem extra long.
I am slightly constipated. I can still go, but definitely not as often as normal. I get crampy for a couple days until I am able to. It is a very uncomfortable feeling.
I'm craving pickles. I know I know, so cliche!! But I cant get enough of them. I could probably eat a whole jar. Last year all I wanted was grilled cheese sandwiches.
I am looking at these symptoms as a good thing. So is J
My last pregnancy, besides the cravings, I felt much of nothing. I don't remember being uncomfortable at all. Maybe the last pregnancy was doomed from the moment it started.
