Today has been my first full week back at work since vacation, and the BFP. It has officially been THE LONGEST WEEK EVER.

Yesterday I won the award for “most fatigued woman in the office” so I rewarded myself by leaving work early, going home and sleeping for 90 minutes. It was fabulous.

Today I have been blessed with AF-like cramps that I am not trying to think about. I’m running to the lady-toilet every 20 minutes making sure nothing is going wrong. I can’t wait until I don’t have to feel this worry all of the time. (Although I’m sure I will continue to worry always.)

This weekend, it’s supposed to be around 50 degrees. People will be wearing shorts and acting a fool because of it. I am SO opening up windows in our house to air that shit out. I am also going to attempt to drag the hubs to BRU just to peruse. We’ll see if that happens. I’m sure I’ll get a “it’s way too early to go there” speech from him. We’ll see. I might spark the waterworks to get my way – should my hormones cooperate.

Dear intestines: Make up your mind. Thx.

In a mere 48 hours, I’ve gone from nearly shitting my pants to no movement AT ALL. Thanks pregnancy! I’ve only ever suffered from the big “C” once. It was not pretty.

In non poop news…I made an appointment at the clinic that utilizes the hospital we want to go to. I feel bad not seeing the NP I’ve been seeing for YEARS for my first appointment, but it seems like I should start out at the clinic right off the bat. Oh well.

This new clinic has the choice of seeing a set of doctors or midwives. GREAT. Another decision. I had always assumed doctor, but now I don’t know. Le sigh.

Also – I’m pretty much going INSANE not telling anyone about the babe. I REALLY REALLY want to wait, but not telling is almost killing me. I’m going to have another chat with the hubs tonight and see what he thinks. I’m tired of lying and having this great news and not being able to share it with anyone!!

The reveal to the inlaws.

I don’t know if I’ll keep this up forever, but I’ll post it for now.

Get out of my head, you bad thoughts, you.

Category baby business, not so much

For some reason today, I’m overcome with thoughts that something is wrong and this baby won’t be born. I can’t stop thinking about it. I mean, I still feel effed up and that’s good, but I feel like I’m going to go to that appointment in 2 weeks and they’re going to tell me that there’s no heartbeat or that something is awry.

I can’t shake it either.

I suppose everyone feels this way once in a while while pregnant, but I wish I could make it go away.

5 Weeks.

Uh, holy bloat…Batman.

How far along? 5 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: minus 2 lbs.
Maternity clothes? No. Although after sweating non-stop for the past 3 days, I’m wondering why polyester maternity clothing is even allowed.

Stretch marks? No.

Sleep: Aside from my kitty being a dickhead, been sleeping well. VERY weird dreams though.

Best moment this week: Sleeping in on the weekend. (I wish every day was a Sunday.)

Yes. Plenty of it in my bowels.
Food cravings:
Gender: I haven’t even thought about it. I’m kind of not letting myself think about it.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out?
What I miss:
Feeling like I’m on solid ground and not on the deck of a yacht in stormy seas. (urp)
What I am looking forward to: That first appointment! (2 more weeks…)

Weekly Wisdom:
Read my post below – get over pooping in public restrooms. Just get over it.
Nearly crapping my pants. Not a good milestone.
