7 weeks (and 2 days)
I am just over 7 weeks pregnant now and feeling like crap. I guess thats a good thing. Previously I had just been really tired and achy, but on Saturday that changed. I started feeling sick. I haven't thrown up at all, and I don't know if I would call it nauseous, but I am constantly feeling just yuck. My stomach never seems to settle whether I'm full or hungry. I can't complain though. Symptoms mean things are going well, right? I am being cautiously optimistic about things. My next ultrasound is a week from today. Hopefully good things continue. I will probably start actually posting these blogs if things look good then. My book says if the fetus looks good at 8 weeks the miscarriage rate drops to 3%. I will feel much more comfortable when I have a 97% chance of a successful pregnancy. Of course, I don't know if I will ever be totally comfortable with everything. We'll see.
