5 Weeks

I'm 5 weeks today and that is pretty much all I have to report. I still feel relatively unpregnant. My only obvious symptom being burping. I'm quite the burper nowadays. For a couple days there I would have some mild nausea or that really hungry feeling. Sometimes it would be so fleeting I almost wondered if it was my mind playing tricks on me. I haven't had those feelings for a couple days though. I'm trying not to read too much into that. Pretty much I feel the same as always.
I haven't called the doctor yet. I think I will wait until I'm at least 6 weeks or more. With Tyler they allowed me an extra ultrasound and blood test to assure me that everything was fine. I kind of doubt they will be so obliging this time after having a perfectly normal and healthy previous pregnancy. So going this early is pretty much pointless. I wonder what the schedule is normally. When do they do the first ultrasound? Guess I'll find out.
So there you have it. My update at 5 weeks. Not too exciting, but I'm still excited for this new life!

I'm pregnant! It is a surprise pregnancy, but we're still excited and happy! The tentative due date, according to the Baby Center's due date calculator, is June 25th or 26th. Yay! A June baby! I always thought June would be a good time to have a baby. I'm only a little over 4 weeks so I'm hardly feeling pregnant - and that is fine with me. We'll see what the next few weeks bring. Tyler will be 19 months old when this baby is born. Not bad. I was aiming for about 2 years apart, that's close enough.

I am so excited for this baby! Now that I know all the fun, and not so fun, parts of pregnancy I am excited to see what this one brings. I'm excited for all the little milestones and excited to be able to share it with Tyler. I wonder what he will think when I'm big and fat! I told him this morning that he was going to be a big brother. He was way more interested in his breakfast. haha! I can't believe I'm going to have 2 kids!

Well, off we go on our new adventure! Hopefully this time I'll be better about updating.
