5 Weeks Pregnant Update

April 13, 2013 - 5 weeks pregnant

Today I got my HCG (the pregnancy hormone) numbers back from the blood work that I took at my first OB appointment. HCG was 1792 and my Progesterone was 23.2. What does that mean? That means viable pregnancy!!

I am completely full of energy this week. 
Monday we went to the gym and I worked making sure to maintain the recommended heart rate that the doctor told me to. 
Is it sad that I have never been more body conscious and weight conscious until I found out I was pregnant. It was cool to go to the gym here and there when I was the blame for my weight. But now with this inevitable weight gain, I feel like I am one extra snack of Oreos away from looking like Kim Kardashian does. 

Luckily baby, you have allowed me to get more sleep then I did the first week I found out you existed. Those stomach cramps were the pain in BUTT!
and per usual, your Daddy is one cute ball of excitement.

He told our neighbors about you while we were out doing yard work - and of course they are so excited for us.

A wave of exhaustion hit me and I apologized to Amos for not making dinner because I definitely pulled out everything to get it started and then laid down and went to sleep for hours.
Luckily, he cooked dinner for me because I was starving when I woke up and said the right thing, "no need to apologize hunny, your pregnant with our baby." THANKS .. cause honestly I do forget sometimes and I feel like the least I can contribute to our household is cooking my husband dinner.

Baby, your Dad keeps fussing at me on a daily basis about NOT eating enough. I keep telling him that I am really no more hungry then I was before I was expecting. However, that answer is not good enough for him. Grant it he is probably right but I have quit snacking for so long that I really have no desire to increase my intake.
I will though for the sake of not being fussed at by Amos. So - off to make me a bowl of cereal.

  1. Congrats on your pregnancy! Very exciting!!

  2. Love it! You have a really great guy there. Mine would get so mad at me during pregnancy as I fell asleep during almost every movie we tried to watch. I felt bad, but hey, I was tired! Congrats to you :)

  3. Aww, Amos is sweet! Maybe he can teach Ashish to cook! LOL! I love reading your updates!

  4. OH MY! So happy for you. I just know I am going to love all the updates!!! Congrats!

  5. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you and your husband! Dont worry my eating patterns didnt really change when I was pregnant either. So as long as you are getting at least your three meals and a couple of snacks you should be fine, unless the docs tell you to eat more. I only gained 25lbs my entire pregnancy (which the docs liked because I already had weight on me) but the weight jumped on me afterwards! LOL!!! You are going to LOVE the extra attention though! LOL!!! Enjoy it!!!
