Even though I've known for a little over a week (I am now 5 weeks!), it still hasn't really sunk in yet. I really thought I would feel different. Don't get me wrong, I am so happy that I can hardly stop myself from smiling. I mean that I thought being pregnant, I would feel like something was going on down there. Occasionally, I feel a slight twinge but that's about it. I'm sure that is the way it's supposed to be but I guess I thought I would have this glowing aura of light shining on my belly at all times...hahaha, yeah right.
So far, the only symptoms I'm experiencing are:
- peeing more often
- more tired than usual (although that has gotten better)
- tender ta-tas (they don't hurt really, just a little tender)
And thats it. No morning sickness (knock on wood), no heartburn, no real cravings (although I've had a hankering for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich) or food aversions (except raw onions, but I had that before getting pregnant). I'm feeling really good.
I did have a scare the other day when I couldn't get my blood sugar to go down. It stayed high most of the day. I finally had to give myself a shot when I got home from work. It's been fine ever since, but it was nonetheless scary. I have an appointment with a nutritionist on January 29th so I'm hoping that will shed some light on what foods are good to eat while pregnant and to help control my blood sugar at the same time.
And just so you know how much I wanted to make sure I was actually pregnant, here is a picture of all the tests I took (not including the digital, which of course, didn't last).....
I took the last one on my birthday because you are the best birthday present I could have ever asked for. I really wanted to be a mom by the time I was 30 but you obviously had other plans. I will be a mom while I am 30 and I'm ok with that. Because I am going to be a mom. I am going to be a mom. Wow.
