I'm going to attempt to post week by week updates. I was technically 5 weeks on Saturday, but the weekend was super busy with a birthday party, college football and date night with Mr. MBC.
Weight gain - 2 pounds...I really think this is all bloat and lack of pooping. I've barely eaten anything over the past week.
Symptoms - Still having some cramping, but no more spotting! YAY! My boobs still feel like punching bags and have began to overflow the bra cups. I'm exhausted by 7:30 or so each night. But the tale-tell sign is the constant trips to the bathroom. Last night, I got up 3 times to go pee. I already have sleep issues, and all the peeing is not helping. Lastly, indigestion. It doesn't matter what I eat or drink. I have it after every.single.meal. But I'll take that over morning (or all day) sickness.
Clothes - I'm still wearing my regular clothes. However, I did buy 2 Bella Bands last week. They are like heaven with some of my pants. I've decided I'm going to buy a couple of knit dresses that are work appropriate and mix them up with cardigans, scarfs, etc. I'm hoping I can make it for a little while without having to buy true maternity clothes.
Coming Up This Week - Mr. MBC and I have our first ultrasound this week, Thursday. I cannot wait to see the little blob that is growing inside me. I'm very anxious about it because several people have suggested to me that I may have twins in there based on my HCG's quick doubling time. Comparing my numbers to those on the Beta Base site, I'm much more in line with twins than a singleton. Mr. MBC and I will be happy with either, but the thought of two babies at once is a little scary. But as my mother pointed out, I don't know the difference between one newborn and two newborns. She's assured me that I'm going to be exhausted either way. Thanks Mom :)
