Having been through the first trimester three times, my nausea has always kicked in at pretty much exactly 6 weeks.
Today I am 4 weeks 5 days.
And I’m feeling a bit, salivary.
It’s the only word I can think of to describe it. Is this my imagination?? I am not sure.
Otherwise, on the symptom front, I have had NOTHING. Even my sore boobs have settled down.
This makes me nervous that nothing is happening and I’m heading for miscarriage, although I haven’t had a single speck of spotting either. I’ve stopped taking my temperature and taking pregnancy tests as neither of these things are now reliable indicators that everything is OK. If I am going to miscarry, the first thing I’ll see will be spotting or blood. I had a very brief flash of pain yesterday, which worried me, but nothing since.
I’m in a kind of holding pattern. Every trip to the bathroom, I steel myself for the worst.
I have a doctors appointment on Tuesday evening and hopefully an early scan will follow soon after I reach 6 weeks. Seeing a heartbeat at six weeks puts me at an 80% chance of success, whereas currently it’s about 20%, so this scan is going to mean a lot.
I’m generally feeling pretty damn positive (given everything we’ve been through!), but I think that’s just my personality and doesn’t necessarily mean it’s all going to be OK.
And so, we wait.
Lordy, I’m itching to sort out all the baby stuff in the loft though.
