Five Weeks

My little baby is 5 weeks old today. I can’t wait to start “feeling” pregnant. Not too much has changed. I’m still extremely tired, and I’m still constipated thanks to the lovely progesterone shots. I’ve also been getting dizzy the last couple of days, which my IVF coordinator says also is from the progesterone.

Last night, I had my first major food aversion/nausea. We went to our Kiwanis club meeting to announce our pregnancy. Everyone brings dinner to the meeting, and one woman brought spaghetti for her and her daughters. The meat sauce totally made my stomach lurch, and that and the smell of soap kept me nauseous throughout the night.

I’m actually kind of looking forward to having morning sickness. It will let me know my baby’s still alive and growing in there. I don’t know if last night counts as that or if it was just random nausea from food smells. I’m just counting down the days to our first u/s so I can see my baby’s heart beating.

    Before you know it, your little baby will be five weeks old on the OUTSIDE! hehe šŸ™‚ Time goes by *so* fast. I remember having slight nausea at times when I was pregnant with Lucas. It was mainly in the morning, and nibbling at a bagel would help. I ate a lot of bagels back then. šŸ™‚ Didn’t have it so much with Meri. But with both pregnancies, I was freaking EXHAUSTED!!! Luke especially. I would go to bed at like 7:30 p.m.!

    I had nausea but never threw up during my whole pregnancy. Don’t worry if you don’t either.

    How exciting… With my first two I had no smell aversions. With my 3rd every odor made me nauseous ! Keep up the good work!
