Today I am at 5 weeks, 0 days. The 6th week started! And my baby is now the size of an apple seed. Just a week ago it was a poppy seed – and now an apple seed! Such a growth spurt. (Just noticed I spelled “poopy seed” instead of “poppy seed” LOL)
Breasts feel a bit sore sometimes. And they got bigger. In fact, one of my friends eyed them suspiciously and asked me whether I am pregnant. Well, I told her about the progesterone suppositories and suggested it’s their effect. I am not ready to start telling everyone!
No morning sickness yet.
This morning got REALLY scared. I was sitting with my laptop and then jumped off the couch and went into the kitchen and then felt this strongest rush of blood to my head and all of a sudden realized I can’t see. Like, at all. You know how sometimes if you get up too quickly you get this rush and everything goes black for a moment? Well, it was the same – only it was a bit longer than a moment. Maybe three seconds or so. It was really scary. I knew I was standing staring at the window – and it’s a bright sunny morning outside – and I don’t see a thing.
Now I remember my mom telling me she lost her consciousness a few times with both pregnancies (me and my sis). In a shower, in the subway (no ventilation or air-conditioning and in rush hour). And I got my mom’s weak blood vessels. So I guess I should be more careful.
I also developed some weird morning running nose thing. Every morning, it’s running – and then everything is normal. Maybe I became allergic to something? Like my wool blanket? I don’t know.
Other than that, nothing to report.
Oh, and now the really scary thing. Was reading a pregnancy book, and it described how you give birth to the baby, and then the placenta, and that then you pass on blood clots. Attention: “notify your caregiver if those blood clots are bigger than a lemon“.
Yikes. I mean, YIKES. Blood clots the size of a lemon?
Anyway, back to happy thoughts. All that is still 35 weeks away. Apple seed – I love my apple seed
