First prenatal appointment is Monday. Present symptoms include:

Sore boobs

The sore boobs is not that bad. But the fatigue, it is surreal. I am most energetic at 4-5 a.m., and by afternoon, I'm aching to take a nap. I'm still a night owl, so I have been staying up too late. I can't seem to sleep more than 6 hours without needing to urinate, and then I can't go back to sleep.

The only food craving that could reasonably apply is cheeseburgers. I can't has enough cheezburgers. I would eat them every day were it not for the aforementioned concern of gaining too much weight.

I took some saltines into work with me in case I got struck with nausea. Ate a few the other day just cause I was hungry. They never, ever tasted so good.

My allergies seem to be a little worse right now, but that could just be the season... oh well, I got my new prescription of Xyzal so I should be good.

6 weeks

Last night I discovered that I am getting too fat, too fast. I had to order some adjustable mat pants. The next size would just not fit right around my bloated belly. I told a friend about how fat I was getting and she automatically assumed that I interpreted my fatness as "showing" - I set her straight. I wish this was showing, but I know it isn't. I'm just eating too much of bad foods that cause me to bloat and gain weight. I know how this works. I got super fat before. If I don't stop it now, I will be sorrier than a mofo.

I had always fancied myself as one of those women who would not get too fat while pregnant, and now I feel like a hypocrite. I would almost (but not quite) welcome a little morning sickness to counteract my appetite. Apparently, 6w is when it starts. I'm 6 weeks now, okay.

On the other hand... )

i knew there was a reason i didn't want to tell my mom about the pregnancy. her reaction couldn't have been more dull. I was very hurt. told her off a little. i was even more disappointed than I feared I would be. no one else I've told has reacted this way, like it was a bad thing. "uh, well how do you feel about that? are you happy?" D: Not, "congratulations!" but "oh, well, i knew that was coming. i mean I figured it was."

a little while later she called back to tell me she was sorry for reacting that way. that made me feel better, but I still don't feel good.

i have a bad feeling that i am going to be my own cautionary tale about telling ppl too early. well, at least i got my h1n1 vaccination.

I expected that we would have to ttc for a few months and maybe by the first of the year I would be with child. I did not expect it to happen the first month. And now I'm in denial, a little. Guess I should stop drinking coffee & diet cokes...
