Been carrying my little babe around for five weeks!! This was my first full week knowing that I was pregnant. We’ve processed the initial shock although it still feels surreal that we are finally pregnant. Something that we had planned many months for showed up within a month of being off of birth control.
They don’t warn you of the emotional roller coaster that you go through the first few days that you know you’re pregnant. I was completely overjoyed when I saw those lines cross on the test. My heart was beating out of my chest. We have felt absolutely over the moon this past week. I’ve felt so happy and complete. Also, the fact that you’re growing a human….freaking awesome.
I am rather healthy, no history of diseases which could be seen as a complications. I do have poor circulation in the legs which something we will definitely monitor. Walking and exercises will help me keep the fluids flushed and my body limber to carry. I’m planning to exercise 3-4x week. I also have started taking my prenatals as well! I was on. Hormone balancing supplement for the past 4 months which contained enough folic acid for my new little babe.
No size changes yet! Just feeling and looking a little bloated. Oh and super sore nipples and boobs! It’s crazy and actually the first symptom that made me think I was pregnant. I’ve had light and intermitent cramps everyday mostly at night. These are normal as it is the egg attaching to the uterine wall and growing. If these are to get stronger and more often then I would be worried.
No cravings! I naturally have such a sweet tooth so I obviously had a few sweet treats. I actually find myself not hungry, probably because there is so much on my mind.
TIP: Take your prenatals! Folic Acid is extremely important to your little appleseed.
It helps the baby’s neural tube develop into their brain.
I am so excited to share how I’m feeling week by week with you all!
What symptoms did you have at 5 weeks?!
