6 weeks

*****This post was originally written on 10/25/11*****

OH.  MY.  GOD.  Please let me stop peeing every 2 seconds.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  I know that I’ve been drinking more water so that’s partly to blame but since yesterday I feel like I’ve been running to the bathroom literally every hour.  Sigh.

It was tough going out with my co-workers last week to the Cheesecake Factory.  Sometimes I get drinks when I go out with them and sometimes I don’t, but I have a feeling they know what’s up.  Last weekend was also the first party I’ve gone to since finding out I’m pregnant and it’s so hard coming up with reasons for why I didn’t have a beer in my hand all night.  Ugh, like I just want to start telling people now because it got really annoying.  And I really wanted a beer…or some gummy worms soaked in vodka.  Again….sigh. 

Now I sound totally ungrateful, so I need to end this on a positive note.  Less than a week to our first appointment!  I can’t wait to see the ultrasound – maybe that will make it seem more real?  Still hard to believe I’m growing something every time I look down at my tummy :)

  • How far along?: 6 weeks
  • Baby is the size of a: sweet pea
  • Total weight gain/loss:  back at my starting weight, which is good because I thought I totally overdid it last week and could have sworn I gained a few
  • The Bump: just bloated
  • Symptoms:  Having to pee all the time.  My forehead has completely broken out.  And starting to get a little queasy, but usually some crackers help and I’m okay.  Thank you Goldfish!
  • Food Cravings:  Hubby bought me pumpkin ice cream last week :)  Oh, and breakfast food.  Had a few bagels and some hash browns last week, hubby made me a homemade Egg McMuffin over the weekend, and I literally just had a yummy dinner of pancakes.
  • Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: No specific foods are making me queasy.
  • Sleep: Getting up to pee once or twice a night…not fun.
  • What I miss:  Beer.  Definitely beer. 
  • Weddings Rings On or Off: On
  • Any Names Picked Out Yet: We started talking about a few but hubby is just in no rush!
  • Movement: N/A
  • Maternity Clothes: N/A
  • Labor Signs: N/A
  • Best Moment of the Week:  Hearing my co-worker tell me she’s going to be a grandma in April…I wanted to tell her so bad I’m expecting, too. 
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to:  Still waiting for the first appointment and ultrasound to come!
