6 weeks 2 days

Every morning I wake up grateful for the gift that's growing inside of me.  I still can’t believe this is happening but the idea is settling more as each day goes by. I literally have a countdown in my head of the ultrasound date October 24th, 17 more days! Those days can’t come any sooner.

I’m very excited and currently obsessing over baby books. I just got the Pregnant Body book, which is amazing (pictured above).

I’m very very tired and take naps almost every day when I get home and if not that I’m passing out by 8:30, still shocked about that one.  A new thing is that I can’t hold my pee overnight. For the last five days I’ve been getting up around 4:30 to go and it’s been interrupting my sleep. I still have sore boobs still and now a dull backache in the evenings. BUT I love it all and I’ll take it any day everyday.  I’m still so amazed.

I had a hair appointment this week and had to tell my hairdresser why I wasn’t getting my hair dyed. She was so excited for me and then she said to share in your joy I’m pregnant too! What!!!! She’s seven weeks pregnant. I was so excited for her especially since she had also suffered a miscarriage this summer. Pretty amazing stuff I tell, how life works right?

Other than that not much going on just patiently waiting, not like I’m not well versed and waiting . . .

Until next time friends, how is everyone else doing?

I think your signs sound promising, Cyndi! I, too, was exhausted early on, taking naps almost every day which I normally don't do unless I am sick. And I also ended up waking up around 3:30 or 4:00 a.m. to go to the bathroom which also wasn't normal for me. It's so hard to wait for those appointments! Try your best to keep busy! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

oh yeah! I was SO tired! I went to sleep around 9 which is unheard of for me! I am better at staying up now, but boy that first trimester is crazy!

I can't wait to hear about your u/s. Hurry!

Oh, and I have the Human Body book by DK, as well as a few other and love them! The illustrations are awesome. I will have to look into the pregnant body book for sure!

I'm so happy for you!

All sounds like its going great so far!! Tiredness was my biggest symptom early on...naps were my best friends and on the days I wasn't at work I often slept for half of them!! Can't wait for you to have your scan! xx
