5 Weeks 2 Days

I made it! I'm officially the most pregnant I've ever been!

My first pregnancy miscarried at 5 weeks 1 day. Yesterday was that same gestation for this pregnancy. Made it through with flying colors. Such a huge relief, I can't even tell you. The days leading up to yesterday were so fraught with nerves. Basically me preparing myself for a repeat performance. One that, thankfully, didn't happen. I'm still so thankful for each and every day and am hoping beyond hopes that things are going well in there. If they are, the next big milestone should be hearing/seeing a heartbeat. Still no word on the insurance situation, so that isn't scheduled yet.

I guess I might as well use this post as my 5 week pregnancy update as well.

I'm doing pretty well. Symptoms are still relatively minor and almost all are intermittent. Nausea seems to really prefer middle of the night or when I'm out in places with food smells (restaurants, grocery stores). So far its still just nausea. The boob changes Cherry Bud referenced in a recent post are beginning to happen. I'm still the same size, but fuller now. The tenderness is more than usual, but not too bad. I've had some definite issues with bloat lately. No fun. Especially no fun when my 'fat pants' are even too snug. The spotting I had at just after the 4 week mark hasn't returned. So thankful for that. I guess that's pretty much it so far for symptoms.

The last time I weighed myself was last Friday, and I was down half a pound. Probably from cutting out some sweets. I'm firmly planted in the 'overweight' category based on BMI, so I'm trying to be good about watching my food intake while pregnant. I'm trying to stay active too. Up to this point that's consisted of lots of walking the dog. I'll probably start getting back to the gym this week.
