5 weeks

Already! This week went by pretty quickly and for that I'm glad! It still feels like the time until my first appt is dragging by so slowly! We still haven't told anyone in real life other than the same select few friends. It's so hard to be around our families and not share our news though! I can't wait until we can spill the beans.

Best Moment of the Week: Getting my box of maternity clothes in the mail from Old Navy! We're going to Branson this summer and I needed cute stuff to wear. I picked things that are high waisted and flowy, because I won't really be showing by then, but I won't be able to wear my normal shorts & jeans either.

Entertaining Question/Comment of the Week: I was talking to a coworker earlier in the week and we were discussing our husbands. I told her that DH told me that I had been extremely cranky lately, and she asked "Are you pregnant?" Uhm, yeah! But I didn't tell her that. I just kind of blew the comment off. :-)

Obsession: My Baby Center app on my phone. It gives me a fact/tip every day. At lunch I *have* to read my fact/tip!

What I Am Most Looking Forward to This Week: Making it past 5w4d. That's the day I had my miscarriage the last time, so I think that if I can get to 5w5d I will feel so much better!

What I Miss the Most: Sleeping all the way through the night! I have a hard time getting comfortable since I am used to sleeping on my stomach. And I wake up to pee around 3am or 5am (or both!) every night. I guess this is God's way of preparing me to get up with the baby!

Symptoms: Still very tired. I took a personal day Friday to work on my transcription class and had to take a 2 hour nap after lunch! Still have a strong aversion to the smell of oranges. One of the children opened his orange juice and the smell almost did me in. I had to stand on the other side of the room until he finished it! And a new addition to the list: indigestion! I've always heard that if you have indigestion, then your baby will have a lot of hair. We'll have to see if this turns out to be true!
