5 Weeks & 1 Day Pregnant!

I know I have been so bad at blogging! Would it be okay to blame it on my constant tiredness?!

Today I am 5 weeks and 1 day! Time sure is flying by if you ask me! We are still on cloud 9 and not sure we are getting down any time soon. We were soooo nervous and excited to get our first Beta and when it came back at 108 we were relieved and excited. Then we were told to come back on Monday for another Beta. That wait was more nerve-wracking than the first! We were not even fixed on a number but more of the fact that it was going to double. We then got the call after many hours of waiting that our beta had doubled and even a little more to 349!

Everything has been going great. I still continue on my twice a week acupuncture appointments because they help with relaxation and help minimize the risk of miscarriage. I love our acupuncturist! Did I ever mention that she told us we were pregnant before we even tested. On Thursday, December 20th we went for our weekly appt and she felt my heartbeat on my wrist. She said "it feels great girls!" I felt the heartbeat she was talking about and it felt weird, like pearls rolling through my blood. Well after that we felt great! The next day towards the evening I felt menstrual like cramps, lower back pain and sorry for the TMI but loose stool. Exact symptoms I feel a couple days before I start my period. I literally sat on the toilet waiting for it to start. I thought it was a bust. Then after four hours it went away. Suddenly something told me this was the  our embryos implanting. The next day like clock work I felt the exact same "period like" symptoms.  A couple of days later my symptoms were a nagging headache, pulling, light nausea, and tiredness. I napped two-three times within a day. There was just not enough sleep to make me happy. 

My symptoms continue off and on. I had a horrible pregnancy cold. It started with a sore throat, runny nose, and ear ache. It went away after a couple of days, I have lower back pain and period like cramps which tell me that everything is going great. Tiredness continues daily and I just started feeling bloated the past day and a half!

How far along? 5 weeks & 1 day!!
How big is baby? Size of a sweet pea
Total weight gain/loss: None! Which is a good thing! LOL
Maternity Clothes: None, but I sure am getting bloated. 
Have you started to show yet? Not yet
Sleep: Isn't sleep amazing?! I could nap anywhere. Im just trying to make sure I lay on my left side only. This has been hard for me since I am normally a right side sleeper. I will do anything to keep this pregnancy!
Best moment this week: When my wife texted me this morning and said "Our babies are the size of a sweet pea!" She was SO happy and excited!!
Miss Anything? Honestly, nothing yet. LOL
Movement: None
Food Cravings: Turkey, Turkey, Turkey, and more Turkey!!! YUMMO!
Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing yet
Gender prediction: We will be finding out how many babies we have growing in my womb in a week so as of right now a boy and girl!
Symptoms: Tired, Lower back pain, cramps, bloated and more tired!
Major purchases this week? Snoogle pillow!
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound to see how many are growing and their heartbeats <3

Wishing everyone lots of baby dust and happy and healthy pregnancies!

Thinking of you today. Hope the morning sickness isn't bad or not there at all yet. Try to remember that the being tired doesn't last forever, you will get your energy back soon. :) Take care, lots of hugs, Ryann.
