Six Weeks

I don't make it to week six very often. Most of our losses are of the chemical nature, and happen in week 4 or 5. Week Six is a good thing. This is only my fourth time at week six. I am feeling pregnant now. I am hungry, but nothing sounds good. I feel vague moments of queasiness. I am tired. My breasts are so very tender. This is very different from my pregnancy with Will. I didn't really have sore breasts with him. This time. . . ouch, I can't even sleep without a bra.

In the spirit of my "Act As If" Campaign, I have put the little widget up there to the left. I am a little nervous about it and have almost taken it down 1.4 million times in the last five minutes.

But it will stay there until I have this baby in July.

Week six is good! I am looking forward to watching your ticker tick up!

I hear ya, sistah. Having never made it past 7 weeks with my three prior pregnancies, I was stunned almost continually that I was somehow STILL pregnant. Even now, it's shocks the sh*t outta me, truth be told.

Putting my pregnancy ticker up (I think I did it at 10 wks?) was sure to jinx this 4th pregnancy, I was convinced. Almost daily I think of taking it down, even now.

I told myself I would put up a ticker after my appointment yesterday. Maybe I will. You are giving me courage!

First, I wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for the really thoughtful comment you left on my blog yesterday. I was having a tough day, and I kept going back to re-read it because it made me feel so good.

And second of all, a belated congrats to you! Especially on the sick-feeling part... that is good stuff.

I know it sounds strange, but in retrospect the part of my pregnancy (well, my 4th one, the one that finally "worked" hahah) that I look back on with a smile the most is the early days of increasing nausea and boob weirdness. It was so overwhelming but at the same time it was like the beginning of being carried away on this rocky boat (and losing all control) to the island of Becoming a Mom, after which nothing will ever be the same.

Cannot wait to follow along again this time around! All the best...

Yay for 6 weeks and bravo to you for putting up your ticker. I'm just not that brave (I wasn't with Lemy either), but I'm fiercely cheering you and this baby on every step of the way! ((hugs))
