♥ five weeks ♥

So with my first pregnancy, I documented photos of my belly month to month. I think with this one, I’ll do it week by week. With our daughter, I never blogged about the progress or anything like that except posted photos each month on Myspace…hahaha yea, that was cool back in the day. This pregnancy however, I’d like to do weekly updates. So that’s what I am going to do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you read my previous post, you would know that right now I am five weeks along according to the first day of my last period cycle. As you can see here the 9th of February was the date :

LMPduedate



 So we shall see. That is how I came up with the due date. However, maybe an ultrasound may change that date. When I was pregnant with my daughter, my mom swore they had my due date off because she came two weeks early and was the prefect weight for a full 40 week baby. But I had seen three different doctors, had three ultra sounds and never once did my due date change. So I’m wondering if this pregnancy will be just like that.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So for right now, this is what it says for a baby developing at five weeks:

So it totally looks like nothing yet but it sure is completely uncomfortable and painful I must say. I’m so miserable it’s not even funny. I’m in such pain right now. I have been in really bad amounts of pain. The cramps feel like I’m in labor. They become so severe I feel like I am having contractions. Sadly, it’s normal for me and I cannot wait until this passes. I beg my body to make it go away. I get woken up all hours of the night in pain and spend about an hour crying in the living room trying to get it to stop. I don’t see how something so small could cause so much pain.

And because of all the pain, I’ve also been extremely bitchy lately. My husband can’t stand to put up with me most of the time now. While I’m at work, I’ve been trying to keep to myself because of how bitchy I get and whinny and complainy {that’s a word LOL}. I’m only like this because the pain is there 24/7. It never lets up. So until it does, I’ll be a grouchy preggo woman.

And here is my first official baby bump photo:

Now I have to tell you, I feel like I am HUGE for five weeks. Seriously. When I was pregnant with my daughter, this was the same look I was at at FOUR MONTHS. That’s a huge jump. Not that I am as skinny as I was with my first pregnancy. But I’m bloated like a mo’ fo’ and feel super huge. It’s very hard to hide it sometimes.

I know they say you always get bigger faster with your second but damn LOL. I feel huge. On the upside, according to the scale, I have lost five pounds. So I like that. I’m sure next week, that won’t be the case. I will probably have gained it all back.

I have also made up my mind this time around I want the epidural. I really do. With my daughter, I didn’t have a choice and had to do the entire birth all natural. The only thing in my IV was water and no drugs even afterwards. I never ever want to go through that again. It was the most horrible experience ever. Natural birth sucks ass. But I’m glad I got to do it. Just don’t ever want to again.

So back to the baby bump thing. Which will it be?

Of course, since we already have a daughter, my husband wants a boy more then anything in the world. I, on the other hand, only want girls. I want twin girls. I have no idea why I’m so obsessed with the idea of twin girls but I want that and have for a long time.

I have decided I do not want to find out the sex of the baby either this time around. Not yet anyway. We found out with our daughter at 19 weeks. This time, I want to wait til the baby shower to find out when I cut into the cake to see if it’s blue or pink. So it will be hard waiting, but I want to do it that way. I don’t think I could go the entire pregnancy without finding out at some point. The suspense would kill me. I do only know one person who had done that. It was so much fun and she has a lot more patience then I do with waiting. My cousin {who is pregnant right now} found out during her baby shower when she cut into the cake and saw it was blue. So that’s the way I planned to go.

I cannot wait til my first doctor's appointment. I have never wanted to go to a doctor so much in my life as I do right now. Just have to wait. But it’s so hard. I’m so excited. Plus I just want to make sure everything is going smoothly. The wait is killing me.

So this was a bit more of an update then I thought it was going to be. But what can I say? I can’t seem to stop talking about it.
