Week Five
~ Doctor Appointments and Cravings!

Even though I know it is true and had a confirmed pregnancy test at my OB's office, I still feel like this is a dream. I guess when I feel that first flutter of movement, it will set in that this is really happening. Or when I need to wear maternity clothing or someone asks what my due date is.

I am so anxious about tomorrow's OB appointment. I am not feeling pregnant very much except for being tired in the afternoon, some very slight morning nausea when waking and already a food aversion to bacon.

I worry about how I will handle four kids, but I know that with each child, they do not get less love; you develop more love to go around equally. Being a mommy is the greatest gift, and I feel blessed to be getting a chance at doing this again.

Doctor Visit ~ April 13

Had my first OB appointment. It was to fill out a ton of paperwork and to get orders to take to the lab for blood work. I am to also start taking baby aspirin beginning today for my Lupus Anticoagulant Antibodies. I have my first OB exam appointment scheduled for April 27. I will discuss cerclage plans with Dr. L. at that time.

I went to the lab today after Dr. L's office. I had the OB profile blood work done. The results will be in by my next appointment with Dr. L.

Fears and Apprehensions ~ April 14

I know I am very early still (will be 6 weeks tomorrow) but I had been having some morning sickness when waking last week but now it seems to be gone. I still am peeing a lot but that may be because I am drinking more water. I always felt dizzy when pregnant with the boys and that has yet to happen. No sore boobs either. Wish I'd get a sign. I have never wanted so badly to feel nauseous as I do now. I hope all is well with Baby B. It is going to be a very long two weeks until my first OB appointment. Oh how I hope my uterus measures at eight weeks.

Food Cravings ~ April 15

Well I guess it must be true!! I really am pregnant! I just realized that in the last week I have been craving spicy foods. I have had in the last week, Mexican food, nachos with jalepenos, Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich and Hot N' Spicy Ramen Noodles. Yum!!
