I thought this would be fun to post now and then.  Fill in your info, and share with us!  This always helps me to remember that however I am feeling now is just temporary...pregnancy is ever-changing, and finite!!

 

This Week I Am ___ Weeks Along.

 

This Week I Am Feeling...

 

This Week I Love...

 

This Week I Despise...

 

 

 

So for me...

 

I am 5 Weeks Along

 

This Week I Am Feeling... energetic, then tired, then energetic, then tired.

 

This Week I Love... sleeping on my tummy and rocking my toddlers while I don't have a big tummy in the way.  Thinking about baby names.

 

This Week I Despise... the sight of leftover food and my son's gooey medicine.  Yuk!

This Week I Am 6 Weeks Along.

 

This Week I Am Feeling sleepy, queasy, sore breasts, kinda cranky, easily gagged...  Mmm, fun.

 

This Week I Love being able to sleep on my back and my stomach, to still pick up kids and carry them or put them on my lap if I want to, to still be able to eat anything I want to without worries about aversions.

 

This Week I Despise waking up early.  7am feels like 3am.  Seriously.  Makes taking my kiddos to school such a nightmare.

This Week I Am Feeling...
I am going to copy Jen's answer because this is exactly how I feel on all three points!
"really nauseous most of the time...and nervous in the moments when I'm not...oh and worried about all the stuff that has to get done for this move to happen!"

This Week I Love... limonata - not exactly the most healthy thing to drink, but a guaranteed reprieve from nausea, at least for a moment.

This Week I Despise... well, about 70% of all food sounds/smells gross and I'm not crazy about the fact that I woke up at 4:30 and couldn't get back to sleep (although I'm sure I'll make up for that by sleeping through a good part of Sunday).

This week I am 6 weeks along.

This week I am feeling energetic then extremely tired, like Teacher Momma.

This week I love spending qt with my DS (thinking about how things will be so different in October).

This week I despise waking up at 4:00 or 5:00 when my cat or DS make some sort of noise and then not being able to fall asleep.

This week I am almost 5 weeks along.

This week I am feeling energetic in the mornings and exhausted by 8pm. I've been falling asleep while snuggling dd to bed, then waking around 12-1am, cleaning up and having *me* time and then falling back asleep until dd wakes in the morning.

This week I love being with dd and dh. Also, cleaning and organizing like mad. :)

This week I despise sarcasm and cigarette smoke (from walking around in the city-it bothers me so much)!


Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

This week I am 7 weeks.

 

This week I am feeling generally ok, as long as I eat regularly. I am not fond of this -- I am not generally big snacker, and I really don't want to gain too much weight with this pregnancy. Plus I expect to be interviewing for jobs shortly and need to fit into my best work clothes.

 

This week I love eggs, fruits, vegetables, and pickles. This is such a welcome change from my first pregnancy, where I craved things like ramen noodles and fast food.

 

This week I despise everything that I have ever used to treat hypos (dangerous low sugars -- I am type 1 diabetic.) And since the first trimester makes you prone to hypos if you have good control, this is a serious problem. Fortunately honey seems to be going down OK for the moment.

This week I am feeling like pregnancy was not such a great idea. I'm still loving the baby that will result, but pregnancy is not my friend.
This week I love my new stretchy work pants, all fruit, snuggling, and clean sheets.
This week I despise nausea, my alarm clock, and my completely out of control mood swings.

This week I am 5 weeks along.

 

This week I am feeling exhausted and bloated.

 

This week I love sleeping on my stomach, cuddling and rolling around on the floor with my ds, and getting fresh air outside.

 

This week I despise the smell of the refrigerator and cat food and waking up at 3 am for no apparent reason every night.

This Week I Am 4 Weeks Along.

 

This Week I Am Feeling...Excited, totally blown away by the results of my impromptu Valentine's Day pregnancy test!  But thinking back I've been unusually energetic and simultaneously worn out from all the activity, and wanting food ALL the time.

 

This Week I Love...late night time to myself.

 

This Week I Despise...feeling tired from staying up too late.  (Not fatigued like my last pregnancy though.  Whew!)
