Miscarriage No.1 – 7 week update

So I found out a few days ago I was 7 weeks pregnant. Say what?!

I am 7 weeks and 3 days according my calculations from the first day of my last period. I actually think I’m not that far gone. I’m probably about 5 weeks pregnant. This would tie in with the digital test I did last week that said 2 to 3 weeks.
Wow! Pregnant again. I still don’t think it has really sunk in yet. This was my plan. I have a very structured life plan! This baby is very much wanted. Even though I suspected I was pregnant for weeks before my positive test. It is still a little bit of a shock.
This morning I felt a wave of panic. There is so much we need to do. I need to buy things. I need to get the nursery ready. In reality I can’t do any of that until we find out if we are having a boy or a girl. We will be finding out. I wish I knew already!
I’m going to start my bump updates although  as you will see there isn’t much of a bump. I only started doing these once I began to show with Rosalie so I was already quite far gone. I want to have a record from the very beginning this time.
So here we go…
How far along? 7 weeks and 3 days
Maternity clothes:  No. Although I have found that my super high waisted skinny jeans that I live in are now becoming a little uncomfortable. I have returned to wearing my high waisted American Apparel leggings. It feels good to be back in them.
Stretch marks: No stretch marks. Although today I am going to buy some body butter and start my nightly applications.
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty hideous this week. Although last night actually wasn’t so bad. Nick keeps going to bed at the same time as me and I hate falling asleep with him there. It means I cant take over the whole bed! A day hasn’t gone buy when I havn’t got out for a wee. Something I never normally do. Its so strange that something so small is already disrupting my sleep so much.
Best moment this week: Finding out I was pregnant. I did think I was pregnant. See this post here. However it was so nice to have it confirmed and to see that I was actually 2-3 weeks. I have been to the doctor and I have booked my dating scan.
Miss anything? Coffee. I have switched to decaf for my morning coffee. It’s just not the same.
Movement: Every now and then I feel a kind of bubbling sensation. Sort of like a popping.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really. With Rosalie I felt sick all the time but I havn’t felt that nauseas this time so far.
Gender: We don’t know yet. I cant wait to find out. I really really want it to be a boy.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: I have terrible spots. I thinks its called pregnancy acne all over my face! Is that a symptom. They are really big painful, lumpy ones. With Rosalie my skin did get better so hopefully that will happen again this time. I am not enjoying the pizza face.
Belly button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On. They shall be staying on for the whole time… hopefully.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy. Nick may say otherwise. Happy about the baby, Moody that he doesn’t help tidy the house.
Looking forward to: Getting my scan date. I have random periods and I had negative text results all through the early weeks of pregnancy. I didn’t get a positive test until 20 days after my missed period. I therefor think I have ovulated late. I think I am more likely to be only 5 weeks pregnant which would mean baby would be sue at the end of June. I would like to have that date confirmed so I know exactly how far gone I am.

Update – I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks and 3 days based on the doctor’s original calculations, you can read about it here. Doctors advised my hormone levels at the time of miscarriage suggested I was only 6/7 weeks pregnant.
