6w1d - Symptons/Cravings

I'm 6 weeks, 1 day pregnant. It's amazing at how fast little Orville can affect my body, but with that pregnancy hormone going up everyday, it's happening very fast!

These are symptoms I've experienced thus far:
1. Fatigue - Ahh I'm always tired, I've been in bed by 9pm lately!
2. Insomnia - I wake up in the middle of the night and lie awake even though I'm tired. Insomnia goes good with Fatigue haha
3. Really sore boobs!!
4. Bloating - which is actually kinda cute because of the little bump haha
5. Frequent urination - if you know me well, you know I already go to the bathroom a lot...yeah, I'm going even more!
6. Heartburn - Which I've NEVER experienced before, thankfully it's not happening too often.
7. Always hungry! - My goal is to not gain a million pounds during this pregnancy, so I'm continuing to try to eat healthy as I have been doing so I'm trying to find healthy snacks for when about 10 am and 3 pm hit and I feel like I'm gonna die if I don't eat something!

I'm proud to say that so far I've experienced NO NAUSEA!!! Fingers crossed that continues!

These are cravings I've experienced thus far:
1. Tuna - which Dr told me not to eat, so I won't
2. Raw Onions - Eww, right?! Yeah, I've never eaten or liked raw onions before but lately I want them on everything! Cooked onions will do too! :-)

So that's pretty much what I can think of right now! It's so fun experiencing things I haven't experienced before! I've been praying for pregnancy symptoms for more than a year & a half, so I'm not complaining :-)


  1. You think you have to pee alot now?!?!?! Wait until you have a 5 lb baby sitting on your bladder!!! You will have to pee again by the time you flush!!!
    So fun though :) And when that baby comes, you will forget all about it... Can't wait for Orville to arrive!

  2. this is great news. i know, i hate giving advice butwith lillie i wish someone would have told me this....... all women try to sabotage your pre-baby body by telling you "eat this for the baby, or youre pregnant, eat!!" dont!!! hahaha.. i gained 65lbs with both BUT with Lillie I ate everything anyone gave me. with buddy, i ate healthy and went to the gym to do zumba -3days a week until month 9. anyway, i still gained the same GYNORMOUS amount then, maybe i should just say, enjoy being pregnant- i did!!! you will rock it and have a beautiful baby in the end no matter how much you gain.

    1. I craved Black Raspberry Milk Shakes with Ryan, Cream Horns with CASEY! (sounds better than onions & tuna)
