5 weeks + 3 days

Today, I'm pregnant. That's pretty much all I can say with any certainty; I don't know how it's all going, I don't know what's happening in there... but the pee sticks are still staring at me with double lines & I'm holding on to that.

My 7 week ultrasound has been booked in a few weeks time, so I'm really just twiddling my thumbs and counting down the days until that appointment. We're in that ridiculous early phase of pregnancy that I remember so well from last time - where it feels like you've known about it forever, but it's only been a few short weeks. 
This time around, I'm feeling a lot queasier than I remember with Georgia. Not actually sick, just a motion-sickness type sensation. My boobs themselves aren't sore, but the nips feel really sensitive. I'm bloated up the wazoo, but that's likely a result of the progesterone pessaries. I've also broken out in huge, horrible blind pimples that are SO sore... I have skin like a teenager right now.
I'm not going to go back for follow up hcg levels, because I know that I'll just obsess over whatever that number would be. Instead, I'm stopping at what I've already had done (14/17dpo) like I did with Georgia, and hoping for the best. Every day that I wake up with nausea, or without my period appearing, or with pregnancy tests still showing positive, I thank my lucky stars. One day at a time! I just wish those days would hurry up a wee bit..
