Not much to update this week, and I guess it hasn't even been a week since my last post anyway. My symptoms are very slowly increasing and pretty different from last time. I'm starting to get tired every afternoon (ok, that's about the only part that isn't different) and I take a nap on my days off work. I get teary-eyed really easily. I've started to feel just a tiny bit nauseous around bedtime and have had some really mild heartburn a couple times. Very unlike last time, it takes a lot for me to feel full. I just want to keep eating! The biggest thing about all of this so far is just that it's really hard not to tell people!
Apparently this baby is about the size of a small pea now and growing quickly. Even though there's no baby bump yet (and probably won't be for quite a while), here's the 5 week photo. Yes, there is a bump, but that's just a whole lot of bloating!
Oh, one more thing. Those of you who have been pregnant (more specifically, those of you who have tried to get pregnant) are probably familiar with desperately searching for that second line on the pregnancy test. Although I thought there was no way possible I'd get pregnant this cycle, I still got the positive pretty darn early. Luckily, it doesn't matter and a line is a line, no matter how faint! This was the first test I took last week.
And, just for fun, I took a different (and less sensitive) test yesterday.
That's all for now!
