6 Weeks

I have a new routine it seems.  I go to bed, sweat like crazy, create a heat pocket on my side, move to the middle and then wake up after sleeping only like 6 hours and can't go back to sleep.  Then I'm up for 2-3 hours and then I go back to bed for a couple more.  It is weird.  I thought now was the time I was supposed to be able to sleep, before I get huge and uncomfortable.  It seems I am not the only one, click here.  I also have to take a nap after being up for about 4 hours in the morning (after the SECOND time I wake up).  So essentially I am taking two naps a day. 

Felt ok today, just dizzy again.  Wish I could stay asleep, this broken sleeping is messing with me, but at least I'm not in school for the next two weeks.  Feels like I'm dreaming during the day sometimes.  Took our doggies to the dog park, did ok out and about and then came home to take another preggo pic.  Gained a pound this week, not too shabby.

I don't know if you can tell in this pic but I totally have a bump.  Wasn't sure if it was a baby thing or if I was just getting chubby (eating so many small meals during the day now just to feel better), so I googled it and looked at other slender girls who were 6 weeks pregnant.  They all had a mini bump like me so I guess it's normal.  

I have always had a super flat tummy, you could actually see my muscles.  Now, I have a small pooch forming right in the front, the size of the middle of my hand.  It's cute, we noticed it for the first time today.  So fun!  I understand that it could be your "bowels distending" or your "uterus expanding" like What to Expect When You're Expecting says, but it's cool none-the-less - no matter what it is.  ;)

Went to Christie's to watch Scrooged and had to come home because I started feeling nauseous.  Was so cuddly on her couch under a blanket, I think I got too hot.  Got clammy and sweaty feeling (like at the mall last weekend), and felt instantly better when I walked outside to my car where it was cool.  Ate some ginger candy, took some deep breathes through my nose (yoga breaths), and am feeling a bit better now.  These are life savers, they are ginger chews and when I eat them I immediately feel better.  I like ginger to begin with but if you don't, they are still pretty yummy, like candy but gingery.  

I think I need to make more of an effort to get on the treadmill every morning.  I normally only run/walk 3 days a week but I bet if I do it every morning, at least walking, I will feel better.  It will just get my blood flowing and wake me up a bit, I don't know.  I'm still trying to avoid barfing, ugh.  I also didn't take my afternoon nap today because we went to the dog park, need to make more of an effort to rest too before I start feeling sick.

I feel like I'm on a boat that's rocking and swaying sometimes.  I heard that these work for this kind of feeling when pregnant, I need to get one.
