5 Weeks

*****This post was originally written on 10/18/11*****

The past few days I have been trying hard to modify my diet so that I’m eating more healthy snacks and getting enough calcium and other vitamins.  I really miss counting calories – I feel like I’m going to gain weight so quickly because I’m eating a lot more.  But when I weighed myself this AM, I lost another 0.6 compared to last week, so I guess I’ve been okay with keeping on track.

I worked out on Sunday and felt dizzy and very tired afterwards.  It scared me because I really didn’t push myself like I normally do on the treadmill.  I did a quick walk for the majority of it but jogged for about 5 minutes.  I guess I’m going to have be more in tune with my body and just take it easy.  It almost seems like I’ll be better doing 20-30 mins each day instead of doing 45 mins every few days. 

It’s getting hard keeping this a secret!  We did tell both sets of grandparents this past weekend so they all know and are very excited.  Sista also knows now, too :)  I can’t wait to tell our closest friends but I doubt we’ll spill the beans to anyone else before the first appointment on Halloween.

  • How far along?: 5 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a: appleseed
  • Total weight gain/loss:  lost 0.6 today (down 0.8 total since 4 weeks)
  • The Bump: Definitely no bump yet
  • Symptoms:  Still bloated.  Still hungry.  Still tired.  And my boobs started to hurt and I can tell they’re already getting bigger, ugh!     
  • Food Cravings:  Bagels.  I finally had one today when I had to go into Boston for a work tradeshow.
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Not yet!  But I noticed when we went grocery shopping last Sunday that my sense of smell was definitely stronger.
  • Sleep: Mostly sleeping through the night, taking a few more naps than I normally do.
  • What I miss:  Counting calories…it just used to really keep me on track.  And coffee…I officially gave it up last week and I was doing okay without it until this AM. 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: I started searching but hubby doesn’t want to really think about any until we find out the gender.  I want to start making a list now!
  • Movement: N/A
  • Maternity Clothes: N/A
  • Labor Signs: N/A
  • Best Moment of the Week:  Telling my parents that I’m expecting!
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  Still waiting for the first appointment and ultrasound to come!
