Today is the last day of week 6. Other than feeling tired I am doing pretty good. No nausea the last 5 days...? I did have nausea in weeks 3-5 and the first couple days of week 6. Im not sure why, maybe hormones, maybe other causes? In week 5/6 it was pretty strong, mostly in the morning or when I was moving around a lot, or riding bus/tram/train. Sometimes randomly throughout the day. Eating candied ginger really helps. Anyways, the last 5 days were fine. Just tired all the time. During the day I am tired literally all day. At night I have to pee more often. I always had to get up at night atleast once though (often twice), so I'm not sure if its so much more often (2-3 times). I have noticed that when I have to pee, no matter what time of day or night it is, I just cant hold it, I have to go right away. It gets uncomfortable, not painful, but very uncomfortable.
Well, Christmas was awesome, really quiet and relaxing. Lots of food. Oh, but not eating things that you shouldnt really eat in the first trimester or generally in pregnancy is hard, pretty much all the cheese and meat you eat for breakfast here is 'off-limits' :( I am learning as I go and I am not stressing out about it too much because I know I am doing my best. I did eat a cheese I thought was ok but then realized later it wasnt :( (it was made with pasteurized milk but had a rind that wasnt so great) And my favorite breakfast cheese is camembert :( thats a tough one for me.
Anyways, everything is good :)
