Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re 7 weeks along! Our little Eggroll should be about as big as a blueberry. Hands and feet are beginning to emerge from arms and legs. So far, my symptoms have been next to none… just some breast tenderness, slight fatigue, and more frequent bathroom breaks. Speaking of which… it may be due to the rise in hormones or the iron in my prenatal vitamins, but I have been suffering from horrible constipation! It’s so frustrating not being able to get some relief. I’ve been eating lots of fruit and veggies to try to combat the issue, but yesterday’s epic event proved to me that I’m fighting a losing battle. Time to break out the prune juice. Sorry for the TMI, but I want to be open and honest and document everything, because for me, pregnancy is a shrouded mystery I’m slowly uncovering by my own experiences. There is so much about pregnancy that isn’t common knowledge! So just in case there are other newly pregnant women out there going through the same thing, at least they know they’re not alone.
No morning sickness thus far, thank goodness. My mother and sister never experienced morning sickness while they were pregnant, so here’s hoping I’ll be as lucky.
