4 Weeks Pregnant
Weight: Starting weight 105 lbs
Symptoms: Near constant, light cramps, trouble sleeping after about 5am, constantly tired, acne
How I am Feeling: Scared about starting a new job next week at 4.5 weeks pregnant.
Best Thing about Pregnancy: Telling Dan and seeing his excitement was one of the best feelings in the world.
Worst Thing about Pregnancy: I have had non-stop cramps since about a week before I even found out that I am pregnant.
What I am Looking Forward to this Week: Getting the test results from my first appointment and knowing that everything is okay.
I found out that I am pregnant on Sunday, Feb 21 around 6am. Dan was still asleep. I decided not to tell him until yesterday, his 32nd birthday. I bought him a camcorder for his birthday. The card said: This is for you to record all of the happy moments in the coming year and beyond. Love, Julia & Baby Vickery (due to join us on Nov 3, 2010).” He got to “Baby” and didn’t finish. After many exclamations, hugs and kisses, I showed him the home pregnancy tests. He was so surprised and so happy.
Our conversation this afternoon went something like this:
Dan- How's the baby doing?
Julia- Good. You see, there were only 3 pieces of pizza left and I ate two. I thought you would want me to have it, since I am carrying your child and all.
Dan- That's messed up.
Julia- It's fair. One piece for you, one for me and one for the baby.
