Pregnancy: Week 6

And so it begins!

I found out I was pregnant at 4 weeks and 1 day, and when I hit that 5 week mark I decided to start documenting it mostly as a way to deal with all the emotions of being pregnant after a miscarriage.  So here goes all about my 6th week of pregnancy!

I’ve been aware of my pregnancy for about a week now and I have mostly been trying to ignore it. Having had an early miscarriage 2 months ago, I am not sure this baby is going to “stick” and I would rather not get attached.  Because I don’t feel pregnant yet, its actually pretty easy to ignore.  However, as the date of my previous miscarriage approaches, the days slowed down to … what runs slower than molasses?!?  It just felt like time stopped and I was never going to get to the other side of 5+2.  My anxiety is currently through the roof, and I am just generally sad and withdrawn.  I feel more tired than usual, but at this point I am expending so much emotional energy freaking out that I am not surprised.  I am hoping the weeks following the date of my previous miscarriage will be better!

Cravings: wild rice cooked in bone broth with ghee, CARBS, CARBS, CARBS, fat (avocado and sardines), oh and CARBS.

Aversions: none

What I Actually Ate: Pretty close to my regular diet with some extra wild rice, sweet potatoes, and avocados.

Workouts: I was an emotional mess this week, so I gave myself a pass. I did a few strength workouts at home (20-30 minutes), but that was it.
