4 weeks, 4 days

It may be science and my body, and may just be my crazy mind, but in the one week I have known I have been pregnant, I have become a pregnant woman. I cannot stay awake past 9 pm. I have horrible headaches and weird tummy twinges. I have gas my little brother would be jealous of. It's kinda amazing.

I also had spotting. Light, brown, and it's stopped, but it was enough to scare the crap out of me. Being me, I decided to hope for the best and let it go. Then I mentioned it to DH, who was in Orlando this week for work, and got a ridiculous tongue lashing (I've always gotten a kick out of that phrase) for being proud and not relaying on doctors when that's what they are there for. In the end I had to admit he was right, and I know that allowing myself to be vulnerable and leaning on medical help is going to be one of my biggest challenges with this pregnancy.

So, I did call, and I had blood work taken Friday to check my HcG levels. We should hear just how well Lil G is progressing on Monday or Tuesday.

This week also brought a lovely surprise from Sarah, known on GP as sauma790 -- a little Happy BFP gift of onsies and baby socks. Now all sorts of baby clothes make me weak in the knees, but baby still my heart. Sarah, thank you so, so much! I cannot wait until your BFP so I can return the favor!
