Symptoms: gluten intolerance! (odd I know) gained weight in my stomach already (my belly was enormous with DD), very sensitive to pants and things putting pressure on my belly already...
Food: trying to stick too paleo
Exercise: prenatal pilates! walking w/ my 28lbs toddler on my back...
Body changes and other milestones: belly getting fatter already I already sort of look like a baby bump but my belly wasn't exactly fit beforehand LOL
Thoughts: Can't wait for my home birth! I think it *may* be twins!
I'm trying to eat paleo, too, so I'll be interested to see how your experience is going.
Weeks/Days along: 5 weeks 3 days
Appointments: None yet, but I think I'll make a confirmation appointment with my midwives just to have an opportunity to ask some questions. There may be a chance that my BMI will risk me out of a birth center birth so I might need to interview hospital midwives.
Symptoms: I was feeling pretty good for the past week but this morning I had a bit of a scare. I started spotting and got a major cramp that has mostly gone away. I also felt ill and like I couldn't regulate my body temperature. After a good amount of rest, food, and water I feel a lot better.
Food: I had resolved to start the paleo diet the day I took my test and rather than toss it I figured I'd try it out anyway. I just modified it to include dairy. I'm hungry every couple of hours and can't eat much at a sitting, which will be something to get used to.
Exercise: Some weights at home, walks in the neighborhood, and I'd like to start swimming regularly.
Body changes and other milestones: Nothing yet. I'm a little worried that I'm never going to show because I'm overweight already.
Thoughts: I'm still really concerned about mc because it took us so darn long to get pregnant. I just wish I could tell everyone. My mom will be so happy! She has been wanting grandkids for 16 years. Unfortunately for her I didn't get married until 3 years ago.
