Today marks 5 weeks and 5 days along in this pregnancy and I thought I would keep track of my symptoms.
Breasts: Slight tenderness when poked (still slightly freaked out that they don’t hurt like before), have slightly gotten bigger so I have started wearing a sports bra as I don’t want to purchase larger bras until I am further along.
Nausea: A few times after meals or while giving myself the Lovenox injection but so far nothing too bad. Have noticed my sense of smell is getting stronger which doesn’t help with nausea.
Tiredness: I feel sleepy after meals and in the afternoons mostly. Sleep solidly throughout the night which is a nice change.
Bathroom Runs: Seem to be normal at this point, still looking at the toilet paper for blood every time I wipe (sorry for the TMI).
Strange Aches and Pains: I get this dull pressure under my left rib and I am not sure if its caused by gas? Sometimes feel small stomach cramps but not often.
Bloating: Throughout the day, it makes me look 5 months pregnant and super gassy
Other Strange Symptoms: My facial peach fuzz seems to be turning into a full on blond beard!
Mood: I seem to have no patients for my poor husband, hoping this goes away sooner than later! Have moments of doubt that this pregnancy will not stick and other moments where I want to tell everyone that Im pregnant. It’s still a rollercoaster…
Food Cravings: Haven’t had any as of yet but when I am hungry I have to eat right away..the hunger pains hurt like crazy.
PIO Shots: Husband has been doing a great job with doing my butt injection each evening. The injection sights are supper itchy and sometimes they sore but its nothing too bad.
Feeling like this is the 2ww all over again, except this time I cannot POAS to confirm everything is going well. Just have to keep my mind occupied until next weeks ultrasound and hope and pray that our little guy keeps growing and staying strong.
