Gah! I'm only 5 weeks pregnant but could easily be mistaken for being so much farther long!
Bloat has got me BIG time in week 5 and I'm HUGE!
I mean, I'm not a skinny minny in any event, but usually I can suck my pot belly in, but NO chance of that!
I've started taking Fybogel twice a day as Its safe in pregnancy and is meant to help.
This week I've been mainly feeling feeling exhausted to the point of falling asleep at my desk and bloated.
Heartburn gets me every now and then but it's manageable!
I also found out this week that the hospital that I want to eventually give birth in has accepted me into their care, so I can now expect a letter soon with my first antenatal appointment booked for around week 10 ahead of my scan at week 12!
I also re-tested with my Clear Blue Digital to see if I had progressed from PREGNANT 2-3, which I should have, and low and behold I saw this.
Guess it means everything is happening as it should! (Fingers crossed!)
Did I mention that the number of weeks you are pregnant is actually calculated from the 1st day of your last period?
Therefore, although you wont actually conceive until at least 2 weeks after your last period (you tend to ovulate around 14 days after your period), this is the way the docs calculate it- so my CBD may say 2-3 weeks pregnant, I am actually (In the eyes of the doctors) 4-5 weeks. Get it?
