Today I am exactly six weeks. It’s kind of exciting when you make it to the next week. I am hoping that all is going well in there and that everything is ok. I got used to having a lot of ultrasounds when they thought I might be at high risk for an ectopic. Now that I only have one a week it’s harder because my brain creates all these worries on things that could go wrong. I know soon I won’t even get an ultrasound every week and it might be once a month whenever I go to an ob. I hope I make to an ob.
Because I had all of those ultrasounds early I already have pictures of my little turtle from two different times. I decided to write on each one the date and how far along I am and put them in an album. I want to continue to keep putting my pictures in there so I can watch the progression, share with family if they want to see, and some day show my child their first pictures. I hope I get that far.
How am I doing so far? Pretty good. I feel pretty normal when I eat at regular intervals. If my stomach gets empty I start to feel gross and I have to eat some protein to feel better. I have found these great granola bars with 7 grams of protein. I freaked myself out monday. I had the day off and I was wearing a red valor track suit sort of thing. When I wiped I had red fibers on the paper. I freaked out thinking that it was blood, but then realized it was red fiber from my outfit. Good god that scared me. I continually feel like my period is coming, but I have no bleeding. The internet says it’s my uterus stretching and stuff, but it makes me feel nervous each time. My concentration level is also way down. I am having to try extra hard to stay focused on work stuff. Hopefully that will get better.
Is it friday yet? I hope that all of you are doing well with where you are in your journey and I hope that you will all get your bfp’s soon.
