How far along? 6 weeks, 4 days!

Total weight gain/loss: -2.5 pounds

Maternity clothes? not yet!

Stretch marks? they were there long before I got pregnant!

Sleep: I am exhausted constantly. I cannot get enough sleep!

Best moment this week: Having a couple days off of work to be lazy & sleep!

Movement: none.

Food cravings: anything with cheese!

Gender: I had a very vivid dream last week that we are having a little boy. He looked just like C!

Labor Signs: nope.

Belly Button in or out? still in.

What I miss: feeling like myself! I have been very nauseated and completely exhausted for about a week now.

What I am looking forward to: my 1st doctor's appointment & ultrasound this coming Friday November 6th!

Weekly Wisdom: If you are a mother already, be nice to newly pregnant women. We WILL over-analyze every symptom or twinge that comes up. Remember when you were pregnant for the first time!

Milestones: Making it past 6 weeks (which is when I had my miscarriage last time)!!

5 weeks 1 day

This is me at 5 weeks 1 day pregnant. Now, I know that I am not skinny by any means, but I need a starting point right? Here's hoping I don't end up looking like a whale before this is all said and done! It will be worth it though!

Beta HCG #1

was 1,652!! I had it drawn this morning and the nurse just called to let me know. She said it was "very positive". I go Thursday morning to have my 2nd beta drawn. Praying for it to at least double!!!

The test line came up so fast on this test, and the line is SO dark! I am really thinking/hoping this is our sticky baby!! =)

Change in plans!

I couldn't wait to tell C in person, I ended up calling him Sunday night! I emailed him the picture that I posted on here and then I called him and told him to check his email. He was SO EXCITED!! I am so very excited because he is flying to Indiana today, so our week apart is over! I have missed him so much!! Only a few more hours until I can see him =)

So my due date is June 21, 2010 (for now). I called my doctor's office and they put an order to check my Beta HCG next week when I get home. I am praying that my numbers are normal and that they double! If that checks out well, then my first appointment is for Friday November 6th!! I CAN'T WAIT!! Only my mom and best friend know right now. We aren't going to tell anyone else until I have an ultrasound and see that everything is going well. We may even wait until the 2nd trimester, I'm not for sure. After my miscarriage in March, I just can't go through having to tell everyone that we lost the baby again.

I am praying this is our sticky baby!!!

I didn't see this coming!

I'm in shock! I have been very sick with pharyngitis and an upper respiratory infection for the past 3 days, so I haven't been paying attention to any sign/symptoms that my period was going to start...or not start. I had a short dizzy spell and a little nausea earlier this afternoon and thought maybe I should just take a test. You know, just to be sure. I was completely shocked when it said "Pregnant"!

I am out of town visiting family and I won't see C until Thursday night. I do not want to tell him over the phone, but I don't know how I am going to wait 4 more days. I guess that gives me plenty of time to come up with a cute way to tell him! I am trying not to be overly excited given what happened the last time, but it's hard not to be. I know if it is meant to be then everything will work out fine =)

I can't wait to see C and tell him the great news!!
