5 Weeks: Still No Symptoms

It's been a week since I found out that I'm pregnant.  I must say, though I'm bursting with excitement inside, life doesn't feel much different on the outside.  I've learned that pregnancy is all about being patient.  It's very much a "waiting game".  You wait two weeks to find out if you're pregnant.  Then you wait before telling anyone.  And then you wait to the doctor.  Ugh!  It's awful!  I want to tell everyone I pass on the street that I'm pregnant!  I want my co-workers to know so badly.  And my students!  And my mom, for heaven's sake!  I want to actually feel pregnant so I know the baby's still there!  (Multiple follow up pregnancy tests have confirmed that it, in fact, is!:) )  I'm sure it will all come soon enough.  We're planning to tell our families at Christmas...I've got some pretty great ideas up my sleeve.  So, until then, I'll (try to) wait patiently and continue blogging about it.

How Far Along: 5 weeks

Size of Baby: An appleseed

What's Happening:
The embryo doesn't look like much more than a tadpole right now, but at five weeks, it's already starting to form major organs (heart, stomach, liver, kidney) and systems (digestive, circulatory, nervous).  In the next week, it will also nearly double in size!

Symptoms: Still none!  I've been a little extra tired, but that could be due to the darker, drearier days more than anything.

None of those yet, either.

Best Moment This Week:
Buying the book What to Expect When You're Expecting!  It definitely made it more "real"!  And telling a few of my very close friends!  It's like a tiny weight off my shoulder with each person I tell!
