5 weeks symptoms showing up
ButterflyBaby1107 posted:
I am only 5 weeks, but there is no doubt that I am pregnant now! I am feeling totally exhausted, light headed, nauseous, sick, and tender swollen breasts. I have been struggling all day. I wanted to get some exercise in, but am feeling too exhausted. I don't remember having all these symptoms this early with my first one.

I don't handle it well lol. I don't sleep very well, I usually wake up around 3 AM extremely hungry but if I drink a glass of milk, it holds me over until morning. I found that breads (since we're supposed to eat lots of it anyways) helps, oats n honey bars are my best friend!

I know! I am eating everything I lay my hands on, and if I don't, I get sick. I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling like a large lazy slug...5 weeks in and my pants barely fit already.
I swore up and down that if I ever got pg, I wouldn't complain because I wanted it so bad, but now that its here, its really hard to not comment on how miserable I've been, and as my lovely DH keeps saying, I'm barely pg
