I forgot we were doing a weekly, so I just found this! I am 5 1/2 weeks now. My nausea comes and goes, haven't lost any food yet. My nipples got sore last weekend, I had to dig out my tube of lanolin. My butt got big, and I am definitely showing!
I am also having major joint problems. Both my knees are sore. They get stiff and inflamed and there was one day it was hard to walk. Usually it's only one knee at a time, and they seem to take turns. Plus, I think my sacrum is getting bad again. Last pg I had troubles with it from 2 months on.
I broke down and actually told dd. We weren't hiding it from her, people around her, including us, were talking about it, but one particularly tough day, I told her there's a baby in my belly (she's 20 months, I think it's a better word than 'uterus' ) and I pinched my fingers together and said "it's this big!" And I added, "it won't be coming fo a looooooong time" Now when I ask her where the baby is she points to my bulge, and when I ask how big it is, she pinches her fingers together, grinning. It's so cute.
We're all sick right now, though, so that's unfun. She hasn't been sick since she was 4 months old, so I wonder if it had to do with changes in my milk, ie less antibodies?
