Weekly re-cap of pregnancy #2: Week 5

Week 5 
(Aug. 27 to Sept. 2) 

Symptoms: Oh God. The nausea. Please stop. Also: dog nose has returned, and every smell on the planet offends me. Heartburn (already, what the #$&@?). And pregnancy brain — I’m an airhead again.

Body changes: Bloaty. Possibly a slightly bigger rack, but compared to my nursing knockers, nothing really compares, does it?

Cravings: None. Don’t want to eat. Go away. But if I have to eat? Then maybe vegetarian pizza. Or Cheerios and milk.

Aversions: Get the meat away from me! I hate you! I also hate chicken. And pork. And eggs. GROSS GROSS GROSS. My pregnancy-induced vegetarianism has kicked in again.

High point: Hearing my family doctor say it could be TWINS!

Low point: Feeling like CRAP all the time.

Paranoid moment of the week: Still half-expecting period and/or Bad Things To Happen. I hate the constant paranoia of the first trimester.

How does this week compare to Week 5 during pregnancy #1? I didn’t really feel bad until Week 5 last time, but this time around, feeling bad is already old news. The symptoms seem much more severe, too.

  1. Congratulations! I missed the original post but so exciting! I'm also expecting our second…I'm 25 weeks along and my son is 19 months, so the two will be 22 months apart. My first trimester with this pregnancy was HORRIBLE. So sick. And taking care of a toddler when you feel like that is a lot harder than you think it is. But I made it. And we're having a girl, so I think that explains my level of nausea! Can't wait to follow along!
