Leftovers: 6 weeks, poop, etc.



  • I think I’m 6 weeks pregnant today. That means at 6 weeks 4 days I’ll have my first ultrasound. My first ultrasound with Pip was at 6 weeks 4 days and it did not go well. Please please please let this one be different.
  • This morning I finally pooed. Twice actually. I’ll spare you the details but it had been a while and was quite the relief. I am actually wearing skinny jeans today after DAYS of being too full of shit to squeeze into them. It’s nice. Rather than enjoy the temporary escape from constipation, though, I promptly freaked out. Why the sudden poop? Does it mean my baby gave up? Did I poop it out? GAH! We infertiles can’t win.
  • Aside from whether or not I have a live baby in me, all I can think about is food. I’m constantly hungry. Not just a little hungry, either. I can eat a huge bowl of food and then an hour later eat more. It’s weird. I hope it is pregnancy related hunger and not stress related hunger.
  • Still super tired at night. I also get incredibly whiny. The Professor just laughs at me.
  • No bleeding with the PIO injections the last two nights. Awesome.
  • Tomorrow I’m having a Thanksgiving trial run with a few recipes. I’m super excited about the eating.
  • I’m a terrible blog reader and poster right now. My brain is seriously consumed with only two things: baby and food. I’m starving right now but it is only 9:30 a.m. If I eat my chili now what will I eat in an hour? If the ultrasound goes well I seriously need to stock my office with snacks otherwise I might start stealing food from the office fridge. No one wants to be that person…
  • I bought myself a treat the other night: some gold sequin flats on sale at Sear’s of all places. I love them and can’t stop staring at my feet when I walk.

I have nothing else to say unless you want to read more worrying about my lack of symptoms and how dang hungry I am so I think I’ll cut this short. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend full of delicious food and agreeable husbands!

    Yaaaaa for updates! Congrats on the poops. Sending many many thoughts that everything is wonderful and perfect at you u/s next week!

    I don’t know if this imagery will help or not, but I thought it was brilliant and thought of it often in my early days when I was afraid every cough or sneeze or stretch (or poop!) would dislodge my embryo – right now it’s like a grain of sand stuck in the middle of a peanut butter sandwich (on toast, even, if you like!). There is nothing physical that you can do right now that would cause it to move from its cozy little burrow.

    Also, you are making me hungry! Heehee. Hope you have a good weekend, too! Keep on eating and enjoying what you can whenever you can!

      You know, I read on a blog ages ago that she visualized her uterus to be a jam sandwich. Strange but sometimes it is the only thing that gives me peace!

    Wow, you and I are too similar with our worrying. Yesterday I was a lot less constipated than I have been lately and had the exact same thoughts…”why am I less constipated, there must be something wrong!”. Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Looking forward to hearing about your great ultrasound next week! I have to wait until 7 weeks for mine.

    so happy you pooed!!

    grrr, but thanks for reminding me about tgivin trial runs… gotta do one myself. also, that’s when we plan on telling my family that i’m high-tech knocked up. so maybe if dh and i screw up tgivin dinner the family will forgive us in light of the news. (aside from the innerwebs here, the only person i’ve told is my pilates instructor).

    blood spraying, rumps, poop … I need to remember not to read you posts while i have my lunch 🙂
    STOP thinking !!!!!!!!
    And for the hunger, don’t worry it will stop once you stop breastfeeding … so get a few packs of granola bars or dry fruit to munch

    Applause for agreeable husbands!

    I love your updates! I too am completely consumed with food and baby. Can’t believe how hungry I’ve been!! And I’m super nauseous when I don’t have enough food in there. I think the key is to eat little snacks all day. Congrats on the poop!

    Dude, the hungry is your symptom!!! Maybe two babies fueling the 9:30am need for chili. (gross, btw… chili is not a breakfast food!). I hope your peek at the babies goes well!!

    This u/s WILL be different, Belle!!!

    Oh, I’ve been hungry for the past 7 months. I definitely attribute it to pregnancy not stress, or anything else that it probably is. Of course, I’m also too fat 🙂 (The box of mallomars I’ve been consuming is not helping.)

    Good luck next week! I hope the next 4 days fly by!

  11. November 2, 2012

    Don’t stare at your feet while you walk! You will run into something!!! hahahaha

  12. November 2, 2012

    Good Luck! I’m sure the time will go fast for you! Fingers crossed for a great u/s!

    The food thing is normal (at least for me). I swear I eat my weight in food every day.

    Yay for poop! I’m just a week ahead of you and am also hungry all the time…with a side of nausea. Hope the next few days go quickly — ultrasound day will be here before you know it!

  15. November 2, 2012

    This u/s will be different! Yay for poo! And I am totally jealous of gold sequin flats. I do need to find some new shoes for my new job…I don’t *think* the guidelines specified a color for shoes.

  16. November 3, 2012

    YAY for poop! It’s a nice surprise when you actually get relief multiple times a day or 2 days in a row!

    The extreme hunger is a very promising sign. I really have a good feeling about this pregnancy for you! With my twins, I was insatiably hungry from 4-6.5 weeks until the morning sickness began. I am excited for your ultrasound, I really think that it is going to be good 🙂
