Okay, so here I am sitting at 5w6d which I'm very happy about.. another day means closer and closer to the end of the first trimester.. but anyway, This may be a little weird but last night when I was went to get in the shower after I had undressed I glanced in the mirror and noticed blue veins all over the place.. they stand out more on my chest and on my breasts and there were quite a few going down through my stomach. is this normal??? Is it just from increased blood flow for the baby.. this is my second pregnancy which the first only made it to 4w3d so it's quite a difference than last time.. so I don't really know what to expect....
Also, I've still had the increased fatigue, increased urination, headaches that have been coming the past few days, and some increase discharge along with a few sparatic cramps, the nausea has been coming and going.. still haven't gotten sick.. although when I wake up I feel sick but when I eat I feel better,, not to mention I'm starving all the time it seems like and are constantly wanting something to drink...but I've found myself in the bathroom a couple mornings, I haven't thrown up I have just been having some gagging sessions.. is this normal or should I say does it all sound normal?? My appointment is still pretty far away it feels like its not till Jan 2nd so I'm really hoping it flies by so I can be reassured everything is okay!
everything you've mentioned sounds completely normal. Someone else made a post that said something like: the more symptoms the better. If you are still having symptoms and are noticing new ones too, that's a good sign. I have fair skin and my veins stand out like a sore thumb when i'm pregnant. Good luck...btw i'm 7 wks today by my own calculations...no doc appt yet for me either.
