week 6

Every day is a new landmark. A day I didn't know if I'd ever see, and thus am immensely grateful for.

I left the entire weekend empty as I feel the need to really take a deep breath and rest. We got a bunch of pregnancy related books that I want to read... not to mention it's freezing in New York and I'd rather be inside than anywhere else.

Symptoms: nothing new really. Had some slight nausea this afternoon, but I took a nap and it went away. I have been ravenous, but trying to eat healthy. Can you believe I seem to have gained 2 lbs in the past month?? This is worrying to me, as they say 4 lbs is what you should gain in the first trimester. This was enough to get me to go back to the gym- did 45 minutes on the stationary bike and walked on the treadmill. I still feel really cautious and don't want to over exert myself, but I realise I need to get back to moving.

I used to workout 4-5 times a week, mainly running and elliptical. But I have maybe been to the gym twice since my IUIs in early December. This is not good.

I walk to work, so that automatically gives me 40 minutes of walking a day. But I want to try to get to the gym for low-intensity excercises 3-4 times a week. And I also need to look into a pre-natal yoga class.

Have a great wknd!

That weight is probably water weight- right after you become pregnant your body holds on to so much fluid! I wouldn't stress :)
