Week 5

Whenever I read someone else's blog and they become pregnant, I feel like the weeks just FLY by. All of the sudden I'm reading and they go from pregnant to 8 weeks pregnant, to 12, to 20, to baby.
So why is this taking forever for me! (ha). Any how, Today is a technical 5 weeks. I have a blood draw Wednesday afternoon, and then a meeting with my general practioner to be referred to an OB-GYN.
It feels like waiting a week for a second Beta is nuts. It's fine, it's just me that's nuts. I'm getting better about realizing that their's really nothing I can do but take care of myself and if this baby is going to grow, it's going to grow. So I'm trying not to think about it.
I even bought my first pregnancy book yesterday.
It's so exciting to think about all of these things. That in 35 weeks - Lord Willing - my husband and I will have a baby in our arms. And if that's not God's plan, there's really nothing I can do to change it, so I just need to be happy for each moment I have being pregnant.

So here are some updates:
Achy boobs, like really achy.
Veiny boobs. Some dark blue hues.
Still have AF type cramps, but becoming a little less frequent. Now I really only feel my uterus when I'm sitting or lying down.
Tired, but then again, it was the first week back at work with kids, so there were some competing things for my energy there.
I get pretty nautious only when I don't eat a meal (not that I skip meals, but waiting for lunch at work, or eating breakfast late)

People we've told:
My mom (who has already started buying gobs of clothes)
My small group that I've been meeting with for the past 9 YEARS! They knew we were doing IVF so I had no choice!
All the people at the doctors office that I've been scheduling appointments with.

I really am looking forward to our Ultra sound NEXT Wednesday (9th). I feel like seeing a heartbeat is just monumental. maybe I'll feel more like sharing with others after that.
Praying for a good Beta this Wednesday!

There really comes a point when the weeks fly by. Doesn't take long at all and then you start panicking about what all you have left to do! :)

I had the cramps for quite some time. Into the second tri for sure.

You're doing great, girl. Enjoy every minute of it!
