Today I am officially four weeks pregnant. That means Silk Sprout has been alive, making itself quite comfortable in my belly, for the last 2 weeks. Sprout gets the official title of "embryo"; a very notable achievement!
How am I doing? Fine! Not too many symptoms so far but here are the few that made the list:
Cramps:Well, really light- almost more like just pressure or a squeezy feeling. These have been very on-again and off-again.
Super Powers: Just one, my incredible sense of smell. Yesterday I went for a walk in the park during lunch, and could smell french fries as if someone was eating them right next to me. I looked around, but the culpable McDonald's bag was at least a block away!
Giant Boobs: Are they really going to get bigger? There is already a very noticeable change! Sawyer ate my best bra a few days ago so I have been wearing sports bras every day. I may just keep doing this forever!
Queasiness: As of yesterday I would have said I hadn't had any "morning" sickness, but after eating lunch I felt ill for about 2 hours. Not throwing up ill, just feeling yucky. So much for being one of the lucky 25% that never gets nauseous.
Fatigue: Not too bad yet, but noticeably sleepy by the end of the work day (or was I always that way?)
