5 Weeks Update

Today I am 5+2 pregnant. My plan is to these updates each week on Friday when my week turns over, but you kinda gets in the way.
Here is an update of my 5th week of pregnancy.

I told my husband, along with my mother I was pregnant when I was 4 weeks. I told my mom right away because when I had the MC last year, she told me no matter what she wants to know when I am pregnant again, so she can be there for me if needed.

I have felt nauseous this last week, mostly once I got to work, which is about 2 hours after getting up. 

I am crampy, but nothing bad. Feels almost like someone has a bunch of ropes attached to my insides, and they are being pulled; sometimes all at once, sometimes at random times.

I've had heartburn for years already, so this is not new to me. What seems different is that it seems like the heartburn has been travelling more north than before. There are times when I am feeling the burn more in my throat instead of just my chest.

My boobs hurt! Not as much as I thought they would, which I am uber thankful for. My nipples always hurt, but the boobs really only hurt when I take my bra off. Stairs + no bra = NO FUN!

I cant sleep properly. Sleep for a few hours, then up for a while, then sleep, then up, then sleep.....etc etc. It has made the 12 hour work days seem extra long.

I am slightly constipated. I can still go, but definitely not as often as normal. I get crampy for a couple days until I am able to. It is a very uncomfortable feeling.

I'm craving pickles. I know I know, so cliche!! But I cant get enough of them. I could probably eat a whole jar. Last year all I wanted was grilled cheese sandwiches.

I am looking at these symptoms as a good thing. So is J
My last pregnancy, besides the cravings, I felt much of nothing. I don't remember being uncomfortable at all. Maybe the last pregnancy was doomed from the moment it started.

Overdue Update

I have been a bad blogger, and have not been able to find the time to sit and write. It probably doesn't help that my computer has been in for repair for a week now UGH!! but that is another story.

Now for my TTC update.
For about just over a week now, while at work I have been feeling just... off.
At work, I have been feeling a little sick. Not like I was going to vomit or anything, but just not well. My heartburn was also worse than normal.

By the time I get home from work (after working 12 hours) I used to be able to stay up a good 2 hours before going to bed. Lately, I get home and within 45 minutes I am crashing on the couch. I go to bed, and can only sleep for 2 hours at a time, then up for 30-45 minutes, then sleep for another 2 hours. This was really making working 12 hours difficult.

On CD27 - 12dpo, my BBT temp plummeted from 36.87 to 36.48, and below the coverline. The next day the temp raised very very slightly, and my CM was tinged brown. At this point I accepted that my first cycle on clomid was a failure.

On CD29 - 14dpo, the day before AF was due, my temperature jumped right back up to 36.89. I didn't have any of my normal AF symptoms, like cramping, so I thought I would use a cheapie to test.

The test was very faint, but the line appeared right away.
I got dressed and drove to Shoppers immediately to get a couple tests. Went home, tested again and this is what happened..................

I am so excited and nervous at the same time. This is my first pregnancy since the MC i had in May last year. I am worried that it will happen again.

So today, I am 4+1 and due May 31, 2013.
