Today, I am officially six weeks pregnant.
When my husband comes home, he will take the weekly belly pic of me, which will eventually be scrapbooked into a pregnancy scrapbook. Most of these blog entries will probably go, too. (If nothing else, when my kid grows up, s/he’ll realize that his/her mother has always been cheeky, and this is not a new development. 😉 )
At six weeks pregnant, some symptoms are starting to happen here and there. My breasts hurt. I sincerely hope that they do not grow, because if they get any bigger, my breasts will be bigger than my head. 😛 I can already wear my bras as weird hats. (Kind of like a beanie or something? But for someone with two heads? Or maybe a padded helmet and face mask if I go with the push-up variety?)
Periodically, my tummy will feel icky. If there’s something fried involved, then I’ll feel just plain nauseous. But otherwise, the only way to describe it is “an acid-y feeling”. Like the acids in my stomach are going to burn a hole through. It doesn’t matter what I eat or when. It shows up. And it kind of hurts. No heartburn, though. (Has anyone else ever had that?)
Headaches? Varying degrees, but generally there. I had a few minutes last week where my head actually didn’t hurt. However, my ears have been ringing for about a week and a half now. Sometimes, it’s just a quiet hum. Other times, it’s high pitched, loud, and painful. But it’s always there. Even with the TV off and no appliances running, I still have noise. Unfortunately, it’s all inside my head. I hate that there’s nothing that can be done about tinnitus. There’s less than nothing to do about it at six weeks pregnant. 🙁
But I’m still pregnant, and still looking forward to being a mom again. And this time, I’ll get to be a mom the way I think I should be a mom. 🙂
What was six weeks pregnant like for you?
