This week I am 6 weeks pregnant. As of last Saturday (today is Thursday) it has been 2 weeks since my period was supposed to arrive. A positive pregnancy test confirmed it. I have had pregnancy symptoms the last two weeks but they have not been constant. At times I have felt very tired. Other times I feel nipple tenderness, a diarrhea like nausea. What is constant is the frequent urination.
During the day there is no problem. I am home with my toddler and I run my own business so no need to ask the boss for a bathroom break. During the night is a different story. I have to get up every hour almost. I know I know this is due to the extra blood volume but peeing so frequently is really interrupting my sleep schedule.
As I am only 6 weeks pregnant, we have not told anyone about the pregnancy yet. Just you Internets so it is our little secret. Here is to hoping everything is going well so in a few weeks we can tell our friends and family. I might wait a while to announce it via Facebook. A contact of mine started posting on Facebook the second she found out and her pregnancy feels so long. I’m accustomed to people waiting until the end of the first trimester to tell everyone. Then the pregnancies seem so much shorter as they are 1/3 complete before I even know they are pregnant.
Here is to hoping the new baby is developing well.
