So, I'm 5 weeks today (yep, there'll be one of these each week. you have been warned). And, yes, I get that I'm not showing. But, I take weekly pictures and
since I'm fighting to stay pregnant every single day, I'm celebrating making it one more week with a thread and a photo and such. Enjoy!
A little more bloated than last week---can you tell I'm craving salt
And, yes, my pants do still fit, but you can't see the bloat-bump unless I pull them down.
My boobs hurt, I want to barf, have heartburn ALL evening long, have sinus issues, vaginal snot galore, tired (which is super fun since my son doesn't nap), I'm bloating like its cool, I've gained 2 lbs from constipation and bloat combined...which is ridiculous! My face is breaking out mildly (I normally have very clear skin), my hands and skin are CRAZY dry (which is a really weird symptom, but its been since I got my BFP or thereabouts!) and my hair is a little greasy looking...but even with the mild breakouts and the slightly greasy hair, I think I look BETTER than normal
I was cleaning and caught sight of myself in the mirror today and went "Holy smurf, I usually look a LOT worse when I'm in my sweats wielding Windex and rags" Weird!
I'm also a straight bitch, have no patience, and am starving but want NOTHING in the world to eat, so I eat a little of everything and still never feel satisfied or enjoy it :/ But at least eating keeps the barifness down to minimums.
And I have pink discharge (due to progesterone vag-bullets) and mild cramping (the normal stuff), and progesterone headaches.
First ultrasound is in exactly 2 weeks and I'm MORE than ready for it. Counting down the days is gonna kill me, I swear.
Can't wait til there's more to see than bloat. Just gotta get through a little at a time. Just gotta pray the progesterone does the trick and keeps me knocked up so you all can watch my freaky belly take over my whole body like it did with DS1---and watch me enjoy every last second of it as much as humanly possible (considering my paranoia).
