I've been really lazy this week, and it's not just because I'm "in a family way." Well, it is, but I'm totally milking it. What?? This could be the only time I ever have being pregnant! Hubs has been really nice, even though he knows I'm taking advantage. But it does get boring sitting on my butt all evening after I get home. Last night I did a little Wii Fit (don't worry, I took it easy) before becoming a couch potato, which was a nice change. I haven't been cooking either, so while my diet isn't nearly as bad as it used to be there's definitely room for improvement. It's taking a toll on my intestines too, which is only fun if hubs is laying on my side of the bed and I want him to move. Heh heh. I'm so gross.
So today marks the beginning of week 6; I've officially logged 5 full weeks of pregnancy. Apparently our little offspring is the size of a sesame seed and will soon have eyes and some other stuff. I forget what, but luckily there are tons of websites around to remind me. I feel pretty much fine, except for my ridiculously sore boobs. And I wouldn't say I'm exhausted, but I am more tired than usual, especially when I get up in the morning (today I slept through two snoozes, which I never do). So yep, I'm just cruising along so far.
I'm still trying not to worry about every little change that goes on with my body, or fret over what might happen, or what the chances are that something might happen. That said though, yes, I have asked Dr. Google about everything. At least I'm training myself to stop searching once I find an answer that puts my mind at ease! The manual (What to Expect) helps too. I thought about asking the gyno for a beta, but I doubt they'd even do it. It's not exactly a hold-your-hand-every-step-of-the-way kind of practice. So I think I'll just wait it out. My acupuncturist made me feel better on Tuesday though, he said the spotting I had before testing was probably the corpus luteum and wasn't worried about it. And he has me on some herbs that are supposed to help the little sucker stick and grow appropriately. I'll keep seeing him through the first trimester, and I get to go once more before my gyno visit, so that should help keep me calm in the meantime.
Back to work I go! It's almost Friday, ladies!! I hope you're having a great week :)
