Just in case you were wondering...

Although it's not exciting, I decided to post today with a symptom update for two reasons. One, so I'll have a record of what symptoms I had, and when, and Two so that anyone else who reads this looking for "symptoms and when other people experienced them" can hopefully get some answers.

Here's the rundown:

I'm 5 weeks, 2 days today. I've had sore boobs (especially nipples) the whole time (I love this symptom and hope it stays because it calms me.) I have had some nasty heartburn - mostly at night - and indigestion/fullness throughout the day, even when I haven't eaten much. I've had some diarrhea for the last week, off and on. (Sorry ladies, we're brutally honest here, aren't we?) I haven't had any headaches, and I don't feel like I've been overly tired during the day, although I feel like I fall asleep on the couch more easily at night these days. The streak of blood that I had the other day has not reappeared (and honestly, a normal pregnant woman who is not psycho-analyzing her tp probably wouldn't have noticed it.)

By the way, this is not pregnancy related, but I am ALWAYS cold in the winter. I think I need to start a Mr. Rogers routine and keep a cardigan in my coat closet to wear whenever I'm not wearing a coat. (And for the record, I'm wearing a coat now. In my house.)

It's odd. When I'm pregnant I am always freezing. Always.

Yay for sore boobs!

I'm a total Mr. Rogers. I change into a hoodie and extra socks the minute I get home.
I like symptom updates!

Huh. I am 5 weeks 3 days. That's funny. Do you think that women "spending time together" online can get the same cycles? I've been Mr. Rogers for as long as I can remember. I have a bunch of cute hoodies and sweaters that I just wear with my outfits. That way I'm not always wearing the same sweater! I hope you get warmer and that your nipples stay tender! :)

everyone tells me that pregnant women get hot....not me, still as cold as always. I would love to be warm :)

Sounds good to me. All of that is pretty much in the range of normal and healthy. I hope the heartburn eases up, though. I hate heartburn.

I'm so glad that you are getting reassuring symptoms :)

With my son I had horrible morning sickness from 7-17 weeks, losing 6 lbs and finally gaining weight slowly at 5 months (but he was still 8 lbs 5oz and 2 wks overdue lol.) This pregnancy I will be 12 weeks tomorrow and have nausea all day and vomiting every 2-3 days, but hey after severe male factor, 2 fresh IVF cycles and a frozen cycle, I will gladly barf for few more wks if it means a healthy baby!
