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.

Lurking...

How do you handle the constant hunger? Are you able to sleep well through the night?

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 yet....lol.
