5 Weeks Pregnant
5 Weeks Pregnant
I'm writing this draft at 5 weeks pregnant. As you may of read from my previous pregnancy post we have already told our close family and friends we are expecting but we have refrained from telling anyone else as it is still early days. I am such a blabber mouth I have wanted to tell so many people but I know it is best to wait!
At the very start of my pregnancy I had a lot of cramps at night with all the changes that were going on in my uterus but now thankfully for now they have worn off. I know they are a continuous symptom throughout pregnancy and totally normal. I know it sounds strange but I kind of miss the pain and twinges cause it reminded me that there is the start of a little baby bun in there!
I have had a few symptoms so far. I have been extremely tired and I've never been so tired in my life! It probably doesn't help going to bed past midnight when I am up for work at 7am. (I will look back at this sentiment when baby arrives and laugh at myself cause I am sure I will be a million times more exhausted!)
For the past couple of days I've been very grumpy! Lots of ups and downs.
I went through a couple of days where I was anxious and worried. Which is normal. I think?
I am always hungry and thirsty, I'm like a bottomless pit. I drank a lot of fluid even before pregnancy so now it's heightened even more. Food wise it takes a lot more to satisfy. I think I am going to be one of those expectant Mothers who put on about 5 stone! Dreading that!
I have had lots of cravings already. The leading one is for fruit juice! I can't get enough of it. Tropical, orange, apple! I could easily drink a litre a day. I also went through a couple of days of having lots of herbal tea, decaff coffee and lots of bottled water too. Liquid diet much? Not really.. let's move onto the food! My love of crisps seems to of tripled since becoming pregnant which I didn't think was humanly possible. I am enjoying a lot of cheese! I'm also eating lots of fruit, especially Kiwi's and Oranges. I am totally off meat and chocolate. Yes, chocolate!
I've been buying little bits and pieces as it just makes me even more excited. I now have a big hamper full of unisex baby grows, sleep suits, snow suits, hats, socks, mittens, bibs, blankets, and cardigans! I love to look through it all and organise it over and over again. I thought I would upload a picture of the first toy we have bought for the baby. Isn't it cute!?
We are both very excited to be parents and are wishing away the time. I can't wait to get a bump and to tell the world that we are going to be having a baby! Even more so I can't wait to see our baby on the sonograph for the first time and I am dreaming of the day our baby is in our arms!
I can't wait to meet our November Sparkler.
