5 weeks 0 days

Before I dive into the fun stuff, let me tell you that there was a looooong discussion last night. Boundaries were redefined, apologies made, and things are back to normal. All is okay for now. Thank you for the support :)


How far along: 5 weeks, 0 days
Total weight gain/loss: umm, about 5 lbs, all from IVF
Maternity clothes: no, but using a BeBand already from the IVF weight gain and bloat.  I'm assuming it will even out some point!
Stretch marks: way too early for those!
Sleep: All the time, but due to kidney issues (still not fully diagnosed) I have to move to a chair and sleep upright about halfway through the night.
Movement: way to early for that!
Cravings/Aversions: Food.  All food.  The things I dislike I seem to dislike more.
Gender: at this point, we have decided not to find out...let's see if we hold steadfast to that!
Symptoms: Incredible nausea associated with strong odors.  I can't empty the trash anymore because it makes me dry heave.  BBs are up a cup size (blaming the IVF, again).  Gas/constipation funness.
What I miss: Chai!!!  Big cup of morning tea...but it's already been over a month, so I'm getting used to it. SEX!!  But we are hoping to be cleared for that soon!
What I look forward to: seeing the heartbeat next week, passing the first trimester safely!
Moods: Great mood because I'm so happy about this, but if something irritates me, it REALLY irritates me. 
Milestones: WE'RE PREGNANT!  That's an amazing milestone!
Medical Concerns: elevated thyroid levels - taking Syn.throid 25 mcg daily (it is UNDERactive, not OVERactive as I first thought)
Weekly Wisdom: Sleep when I can, eat frequently
Best moment this week: Finding out the good news!
Worst moment this week: Pain from kidney crap
