Up Early Again

So funny, the last few years I have definitely been someone who wakes up early. Not true, when I was younger! This is even more pronounced the last few weeks. I am pretty exhausted at night and am asleep by 10 at the latest. Like clockwork though, I wake up raring to go between 3 and 4. I don't mind it so much though. I have so much on my mind it is nice to have this quiet time.

I have been having a lot of what I think are regular pregnancy symptoms this week which although not tons of fun; are giving me a certain degree of comfort. I have started to have a lot of nausea this week. Never in the morning though; always at night. I was supposed to go to a dinner for work last night but I was just too sick to go. Most people do not know I am pregnant and it would be pretty embarrassing to have to run out of the restaurant. I have also been having some pretty severe muscle pain. The Dr's office has told me that it is round ligament pain and is nothing to worry about. Knowing that, I just kind of roll with it. I just need to get out of bed very slowly, if I stand up to fast-wow! I do find myself wondering if the early onset of this symptom could be a sign of twins.....

I have been taking it very easy this week and the spotting has subsided. I think they may have been right and I may have been pushing myself too hard. When you are so used to being on the go all the time it is harder than you would think to pull back . I think this is something that I will struggle with god willing all through this pregnancy.

Only 3 more days till our first ultrasound. I am nervous and excited. I do have a really good feeling about it though. As cautious as I try to be, I just know there will be a heartbeat on Tuesday, I just know it.


  1. I'm glad to hear of your symptoms (but sorry to hear how they make you feel)! Can't wait to hear about your ultrasound!

  2. So excited for the u/s! Take it easy getting out of bed - don't you know you're pregnant?! :D
