Hey my favorite online friends!
I'm patiently waiting for the rest of you to join here.
I felt baby move for the first time yesterday!!!! It was super cool. He/she did a twist under my right rib. I was hunched over and i think baby was uncomfortable and moved. Baby is still too little for me to feel kicks or punches but wow, so cool.
Kiley- i hope all went well! Update soon!
Got some family coming over for dinner so gotta run. Will catch up later this week.
I have no doubt we will be star . Some of our journeys will just be longer than others
Jessie that is so amazing . Keep an eye of for " popping " feelings feels a bit like gas moving around in your tummy around same time every evening .especailly when your sitting down ... That will be baby
Hi Regina! Nice to know your real name! BTW.... my real first name is Sara (Kiley is my maiden name and will possibly be a middle name if I have a girl ) But Jean really is my middle name. Thanks for all the wonderful tips, those are good to know!
Jessie- That is so amazing that you felt the baby move! I cannot wait to get to that point!
6w+6 days today! Appointment went very well. Doc said everything looks perfect. He confirmed that I ovulated from my left ovary which is what I thought... And this was the first time I have ever had ovulation pain from my left side. Baby measured two days ahead of fertility friendís guess. Funny thing is ff first marked my ovulation day on CD12 but then moved it to CD14 as I took more temps so it was right the first time! My due date is October 31st.
Symptoms this week: Monday and Tuesday I started getting nausea. Monday morning I did not get it until after my workout and Tuesday I got it during and it did not go away until late afternoon. It was not anything terrible, just uncomfortable. I figured out though what I need to do to keep the nausea away. Yesterday and today I drank a protein shake immediately upon waking before my workout I that did the trick! Absolutely no nausea at all! I start having some food aversion as well. I no longer like Shredded Wheat cereal or guacamole. And things seem spicier than normal. And I am like you Regina, I love ice water! My sense of smell is definitely heightened this week as well. Yesterday at work, it smelled like someone was making canned cat food for lunch LOL! Pregnancy brain has already started as well! It is very difficult for me to concentrate at work. And the other night I opened the dishwasher to put dirty dishes in but ended up taking dirty dished out and putting them away! Once I realized what I was doing, it was tough to remember what I actually put away to take out of the cupboards!
So far so good! I do plan on taking weekly bump pics. No bump yet, but I have attached my 6 week picture for you to at least see where I am starting from. Only thing different than normal is that I am slightly bloated so my abs do not pop quite as much anymore. Thatís another thingÖ I have to REALLY watch my sodium intake. It affects me a lot more now than it did pre-pregnancy. I donít know if any of you are on Instagram, but my username is sarajeanyoung (yep, thatís my real full (married) name) if you want to follow. Once we have officially announced, I will be posting bump pic on there as well. Right now I am posting fitness progress pics but also including hash tags like #sixweeks but no one actually knows what that means yet. I also attached my first ultrasound pic!! It actually turned out pretty well for it only being a 6 week scan. Looks like a little gummy bear.
I hope all is going well for everyone else! Going to pop over now to stalk the TTC board!
