This week was so weird. For the most part of the week, I totally forgot that I was pregnant. With no symptoms, no real life changes, it didn't really feel like there was anything different happening.
I went to the doctor on Friday afternoon to get my first checkup and get some advice on some sharp shooting pains I'd been having in my lower left abdomen. The appointment in general was pretty boring, a second urine test confirming my pregnancy (which was a good thing, I was beginning to think I made the whole thing up) and then sent me off for a round of bloods. He was a little concerned about the pain, but think that it's something to do with a cyst that the baby is sitting on (or something along those lines). A big relief- nothing to worry about.
Then, after a really uneventful week, today hit (5 weeks + 1 Day) and i'm nauseated, headachy, emotional. My breasts are MASSIVE and sensitive (overshare). My belly has also gotten a little rounder and it's already so much harder to hide- I think a few discerning people have their suspicions.
As awful as morning sickness is (which we have nicknamed 'love sickness'- trying to be cutesy), it's nice to have something to remind me of the new little guy we have growing in my belly.
