Pregnancy

5.21.14–7 weeks

How far along:  7 weeks 1 day.

Total weight gain? Unsure.  I’m still really bloated from OHSS and weigh 3-5 pounds more in the evening than I do in the morning.  (That’s all fluid weight, as evidenced by the 3-4 bathroom trips I make per night!

Maternity clothes? Not yet … but my pants are definitely tighter and I need a hairband to get many of them buttoned.

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: All the time–I’m exhausted!  I wake up a few times per night to use the bathroom (which is totally abnormal for me), but fall right back asleep afterwards.

Best moment of this week: Seeing Pat again at my first regular pregnant lady OB visit!  I had to request an ultrasound and it was on an old, terrible machine, but the little heart was beating away1

Miss anything? Coffee, so much.  And to a lesser extent, wine.

Movement: Not yet.

Food cravings: Nothing specific.  I’m actually not very nauseated, but many things often don’t sound very good to me.  Salty things always do!

Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing specific.  Occasional waves of nausea but they don’t seem tied to anything in particular.

Gender: Can’t wait to find out!

Labor signs: No, thank god.

Symptoms: First and foremost, fatigue.  Some food aversions, but nothing too problematic.  Bloating.

Belly button in or out? In.

Weddings rings on or off? On.

5.29.14–8 weeks

How far along: 8 weeks 2 days.

Total weight gain? Unsure.  A few pounds?  Still really bloated from OHSS and look unmistakably pregnant in a tight (or not so tight) shirt.

Maternity clothes? Not yet … but my pants are definitely tighter and I need a hairband to get many of them buttoned.

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: A lot… still tired but perhaps the exhaustion let up a bit?  Still waking up 1-2 times per night to use the bathroom, but no trouble going back to sleep afterwards.

Best moment of this week:  Telling a few good friends….earlier than I’d expected but my appearance is making it hard to hide!  (I’ve noticed people doing a double take, and I’d hate for friends to wonder why I’m not sharing the news.)  The friends were so lovely and excited for us (particularly those who were aware of our struggles… although we were pretty close-lipped about them, a few friends were aware).

Miss anything? Still coffee and wine!

Movement: Not yet.

Food cravings: Nothing specific, but lots of things sound not-good…

Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing specific, but nausea waves have increased this week.  I guess being hungry makes them worse.

Gender: Can’t wait to find out!

Labor signs: No, thank god.

Symptoms: Fatigue, bloating, nausea.

Belly button in or out? In.

Weddings rings on or off? On.
