5 weeks sounds so much more official than 3 and 4 weeks! I am a full week past when I should have had a period and the baby(ies) have been growing for 3 whole weeks! Pretty cool.
I definitely have some paranoia. I've researched ectopic pregnancy quite a bit. I've also had recurrent dreams about spotting. Just dreams though, no spotting.
Yesterday I thought that maybe my boobs were less sore. But to relieve my anxiety, by night-time, they were about as painful as they've been yet....YES!!!
I still feel a lot of random twinges and such, but nothing intensely painful except a few short muscle spasm. Those were weird.
My abs are really sore, and not just the lower ones. That seems weird too. I'm not working out besides walking the dog and I really don't feel like I could at the moment. But I want to start ramping up the walking a bit. And maybe start yoga again, but I'm afraid of twisting and stretching far due to discomfort. Maybe it's from the IVF. I've also worried that I have mild OHSS. I haven't really gained any weight, but I am massively bloated. (Hopefully my kids haven't noticed that I've worn the same pair of jeans 3 times this week.)
I am hungry often and need to eat immediately or else I get extremely jittery. I had to buy a bag of jelly beans just to finish shopping at Party City with my mom the other day.
I'm peeing nearly once an hour even when it seem like I haven't had that much to drink. But I'm also way more thirsty which is making it easy to get the right amount of water in me.
I'm also very gassy, but that one's not so fun to talk about : )
Other than that, I feel really good; no food aversions, no real cravings. Although I'm starting to freak out about eating leftovers.
I'm super tired too. Like I mentioned before, I occasionally take a short nap during my prep period, around 11. And luckily for me, Stella is so excited about getting out of her crate when I get home, that she leaves me alone for a good 45 minutes or so which gives me another nap.
