@MarieBelleI did hot yoga before pregnancy, and I’m downgrading to a more basic yoga class (with normal room temperatures). I haven’t been to the doctor’s either, but yoga classes are in general considered great for expecting moms because you’ll get an early start on the breathing techniques (Lamaze is based off of yoga breathing).

I am also continuing to run, though shorter distances than I did prior to pregnancy. Will double check with my doctor, but pretty sure these are ok since they are activities I did before pregnancy.

@Mrs. Jaguar:  Congrats on your pregnancy! I have been quietly following your story on your blog and I couldn’t be happier for you. It is also fun to see what to look forward in the next few weeks!

@MarieBelle:  This week we were on vaca and my cousin who we were visiting wanted to take us to a vineyard. I made up some dumb excuse about being on an antibiotic. They bought it but they joked “are you sure you aren’t pregnant?” I hope I laughed it off convincingly! Also, I do do yoga but haven’t since we found out we were expecting. I would just tell the instructor at the beginning in case they want you to modify any positions.

Have any 4/5 weeks NOT had any sore boobs/nausea? I have to pee frequently and feel gassy/bloated (hot, huh?) but otherwise no sore boobs or upset tummy. My boobs are maybe a tiny bit bigger, but that’s it.

@MarieBelle:  Did you buy a special baby journal? And if so which one. There are so many choices out there.

@mrsrangrang: I had a bad case of road rage the other day. I almost followed the guy and freaked out on him. πŸ™ My DH was not impressed he was like you could get shot.

@laceandpearls10:  I have no advice. My concern is a winter coat. I live in a cold place with VERY long winters. I need a down coat, but would need to buy like XL which I wouldn’t use after. Sucks it can be expensive.

@MrsKitchenQueen:  I am just barely not quite 4 weeks and no sore boobs or nausea yet. Heartburn is really bad though which I never get.

Nothing new to report. Still nervous over here with it being so early and all. I go in on Wednesday to get my HCG levels tested, then again on Friday.

@LuluH:  Good luck with the HCG test!

I also got a journal, this one, and I love it. It is beautiful and quirky and I love the prompts. I like that it is “non-traditional.”

@MrsKitchenQueen:  Thats a nice journal! Wish i saw this before! haha I saw some pregnancy journals but they were mostly fill in the blank and told you what to write. So i ended up buying a normal journal with blank pages that I could fill in myself since i didn’t want to be limited. I do really like that one though!

Thanks for all the advice on the exercise! looking forward to yoga tonight, and taking it easy my first time and listening to my body πŸ™‚

Anyone else feel like a bloated whale?  I cannot stand to have anything on my waist. I stupidly wore slacks today. Ugh.

@LuluH:  I’ve been wearing dresses with leggings whenever possible. Or just lounge pants when I’m at home.

@LuluH:  Lol I’m right there with you. I bought maternity pants today lol, even though I’m only 6w1d. They are amazing comfortable. I have lost 4 pounds so far but nothing fits. The one pair that was comfy has a hole in the crotch πŸ™ so I caved and I am so glad I did. My husband totally judged me until I told him it was like sweatpants but slacks. He’s uber jealous lol.

@apex:  I should change my avatar to Shamu.  I think I am going to live in dresses for the next few months.  They are the only thing that looks/feels comfortable. Apex your DH cracks me up. He should be jealous.

Hey ladies, just popping in to say that I had my follow up ultrasound today, and baby looks well! 138bpm, measuring exactly as he/she should be…and the ultrasound tech said the hematoma didn’t look like anything threatening.

I have my OB appt this Thursday, so I’ll let you know what they say πŸ™‚

Oh, and I told my parents and sister this weekend – they’re so excited.

Also, going on day 4 of no nausea. YUSSS!

@LuluH:  Thanks, and yes, I am a bloated whale too. I had a “serious talk” with DH yesterday and told him not to let me have any bad food because I was turning into a fatty. I’ve been wearing skirts/dresses to work for the past week and a half. 

πŸ™

@luli29:  Thank you!  I haven’t been in here too much since after the wedding, but it’s so nice to see some familiar names in here!  I was thrilled to see your positive update! Congrats to you too! πŸ™‚

 

I’ve also been feeling hugely bloated the past couple of days.  I work part time, and I was kinda thrilled to find out I’m only working 2 days this week, so I can spend the rest of the week at home in sweatpants. Not sure how I’m going to get through 5 days of week next week, since jeans/work pants are not my friend right now.
