Hi ladies! Well I know it's pretty early but I was hoping I'd be feeling more by now. I'm currently 5 weeks, 3 days in. I know with DD, I didn't get nausea etc until I was at least 6 weeks along, but still. I guess I just want to feel something so I can have a warm fuzzy that everything's OK down there. I have been feeling some occasional cramping, and I've been pretty tired - more, I think, than usual. A couple nights ago I had to apologize to DH because I was so tired that I was snapping at him. I've been going to bed a little earlier and that seems to help some. I don't remember being this tired, this early with DD, but since she was my first, I got to sleep a lot more than I do now! I definitely think that has something to do with it. I was joking with DH that sometimes it's hard to tell if I'm pregnancy-tired or just normal-tired, since I'm tired all the time lol.
I have my confirmation appointment with my doctor next week. First ultrasound, not sure when that will be, but I will insist that it not be before 8-9 weeks. That is what I did with DD and it lowered my stress levels a lot. With my first pregnancy, they had me come in at 6 weeks. Then it was a couple more weeks of gut-wrenching waiting and wondering until we confirmed it was a missed miscarriage. Not going through that again, no way. I'd rather go in at 9 weeks and if there's no heartbeat, at least I won't have to have that extremely stressful wait again.
