5 Weeks Pregnant


How far along: 5 weeks.

How big is baby: About the size of a sesame seed.

Total weight gain: I originally lost 5 lbs. then gained 2lbs. back, thank goodness.  I was starting to worry why I would lose and not gain.

Maternity Clothes: Still none…like I said, let’s not rush this and enjoy every second I can in my normal clothes.

Sleep: The fatigue has dwindled down.  I slept like a baby the first night back from Michigan, cuddling close to my husband.  I have a little bit more energy.  Still peeing every 30-45 minutes which can keep me up at night. My dreams are crazy and nightmares are frequent.  Very vivid and real.  I even had to text message mom to make sure she was okay because I was so convinced the dream was real.

Best moment of the week: Moving in to our new house and passing my NCLEX nursing boards.  I’m officially a registered nurse (BSN-RN).  It only took me 75 questions in less than an hour, I am very proud of myself.

Food Cravings: Water.  I actually have no appetite still…I have to literally MAKE myself eat.  It’s getting quite annoying.

Food Aversions: Nada.

Symptoms: The same: except MY FACE!  Oh no, the acne!  The little tiny goose-bump-like acne all over my entire face, neck and starting to spread to my chest.  This is NOT okay, BS.  I’m on a hunt to find a good skin clearing regimen, but I’m sure there’s not much safe out there.  I had to toss my normal BP routine.  The twins are bigger, tender, full, achy.  I pee just about every 30-45 minutes still.  The fatigue has let up a little bit, I have more energy.  No mood swings, no emotions, no anger and no morning sickness…yet.

Mood:  Calm, relaxed, chill.  Totally opposite of what I am normally, still.

Movement: Nada.  But the heart is pumping this week!

What I’m looking forward to: Moving completely into our new house and my first ultrasound September 5th.

What I miss: The gym, my full energy self and my morning cup of Joe.
