Well, now I have been pregnant for just about 2 weeks. All I can say is that I am loving every second of it. I am realizing I worry about whatever is in my tummy 24/7. Apparently, this is what motherhood is all about, so I hear...and this is just the beginning! haha My mom laughs at me and my worries. Anyways, my symptoms have remained the same. However, I am more fatigued and more nauseous. I am on the verge of gagging every time I eat. LOVING it though! I can sleep all day every day...even sitting up. My temp is still always 99.5. I feel like a walking furnace. :) Also, at work one of the physical therapists I work with was with a patient walking down the hallway. As I walked by she looked at me and whispered, "Are you pregnant?" I said why do you say that? She said I can see it in your face...you are on the verge of throwing up and my posture was leaning forward. You just look a little different than your everyday self. I laughed and said wow, that was impressive! and yes, I do feel sick and sleepy. She said she has a sixth sense for this. Apparently, she does! Also - my lower abdomen is completely bloated! It is too early for a baby bump just yet...but for those that know what is going on knows I am extremely bloated and definitely is not subtle, which is OK with me. :)
I have been feeling some stretching in my uterine area, especially last night. From what I hear, that is a good thing! I have called the nurses at IRH twice now asking for an earlier ultrasound because I am now 5w3d and Jan 6th I will be about 6.5 weeks. They said I will not see much before that and that it will be worthwhile to wait since my numbers were so high...there is no doubt. So I wait...and I am finally ok with waiting on this end of the spectrum. I can't wait to see what is inside me. It already is such an amazing feeling. I already know I am going to need to bring the tissues with me to the ultrasound...January 6th can't come soon enough! :)
For now I just put my hands on my tummy, and rub my baby(s) and just wonder what I will see on Jan 6. I am going to enjoy every step of this pregnancy and not rush or wish time to pass. I am right where I have wanted to be for a long time now. Life is good and could not be any better right now.
