How far along: 6 weeks 0 days
Total weight gain/loss: I actually think I may be down a couple pounds from last week, so I'm starting a weekly weigh-in at home -- 115 lbs this morning according to my not-so-accurate scale.
Maternity clothes: Still sticking with either the belly band or stretchy pants/skirts.
Stretch marks: way too early for those!
Sleep: As often as possible!!! But I work 10 hour days and then need wind-down time when I get home, and can't STAY asleep. I nap a lot on my days off.
Movement: way to early for that!
Cravings/Aversions: Cravings: Ham sandwiches. Which is weird for someone who didn't eat meat for 16 years. LOL. But it's the best thing to me right now!!! Aversions: Stinky odors, red meat...
Gender: at this point, we have decided not to find out...let's see if we hold steadfast to that!
Symptoms: Almost constant nausea, worse at night (unless triggered by something else). The ever present sore BBs.
What I miss: Chai!!! Big cup of morning tea...but it's already been over a month, so I'm getting used to it. I have switched to Rooibos (which I adore) and kind of tricks my body :). Sex is allowed, but because of my exhaustion isn't happening :( Thank goodness for AA batteries ;-P
What I look forward to: Seeing the heartbeat in 2 days (we hope!). Starting to show. Passing first trimester!
Moods: Generally still quite good :) Just have to watch the irritability so I don't get out of hand and become SUPER BITCH!
Milestones: 1st u/s and seeing the sac :)
Medical Concerns: elevated thyroid levels - taking Syn.throid 25 mcg daily (it is UNDERactive, not OVERactive as I first thought)
Weekly Wisdom: Keep food on hand at ALL TIMES. I get nausea worse when I am hungry. This is difficult when I'm on the phones allllll day, but I'm learning how to do it.
Best moment this week: Seeing that u/s! Starting to tell random people that we're KU.
Worst moment this week: Slipping on the stairs the other day and falling...it scared me soooo much. But all is well, as far as we can tell. We'll know Monday!
