6 weeks, 1 day

Posted on

One week, 2 days until my ultrasound. I can do this… I can make this…must…stop…Googling.

I want to trust my body and feel like it’s doing everything it’s supposed to be doing, but this morning I woke up and my boobs didn’t have their normal achy soreness. I have no nausea. And to top things off, I have been feeling sharp pinches in my cervical area this morning which are freaking me the hell out. No bleeding or anything, just a feeling like something is taking a tiny tweezer and squeezing the top inside portion of my cervix/bottom of my uterus. The pinches come and go, but they’re not pleasant…

I am struggling to stay positive about everything. I have to keep repeating to myself that this is all completely out of my hands–seriously. There is not one thing I could do differently to keep this baby if the baby decides it doesn’t want to stick around. The ball of cells has been set in motion, and about 80% of the time, it forms a healthy happy baby who drools on things and poops. If someone told me those were my odds for winning the lotto, I’d certainly buy a ticket.

About Sunny

I'm a happily married, 31 year old gal who is just starting her journey to conceive. I also have ovaries that may need a jump start. This blog is an attempt to channel my obsessive research on my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome into something positive....like a pregnancy test. That would be awesome. I also hope that other women with this condition will find support in this blog. There are a lot of us out here! Happy reading, whatever your journey may be.

  1. “If someone told me those were my odds for winning the lotto, I’d certainly buy a ticket.” I love this! Might add it to my collection of quotes to help me stop freaking the heck out!

    I had the same “tweezer” feeling around 6 to 7 weeks with both pregnancies. From what I understand the embryo is still embedding and digging into the uterine wall at this point and it can cause some discomfort. I think this is a brilliant sign that things are going just as they should!

    As for disappearing symptoms – I got ’em! And when I do have a “symptom” It is super ridiculously mild (like last night at the ballet I could SMELL everyone around me, including my husbands super narsty breath!) I assure you: feeling like crap is not a reliable indicator of a healthy pregnancy. Hang in there and enjoy feeling good and your boobs giving you a break! Hell, maybe celebrate and allow the Mr. a grope or two 😉

  2. I think I wrote about this to Belle too – would you describe it as “lightening crotch”? LOL Because I had crazy weird sharp pains in my cervix / vag and I googled it and apparently lightening crotch is a normal thing. I asked my OB and she said it’s just things stretching and moving around for the baby/ies.

    Also, I think my nausea didn’t really start to settle in until 7 weeks. It was only off and on until then. Then at around 7 weeks I think was when I started being nauseous every day, all day. You’re still very early and symptoms will come and go.

    YOU CAN MAKE IT!

  4. The symptoms I had came and went too. I know its impossible not to worry, but I promise you aren’t alone. And I had some cramping early on too. Can’t wait to hear about your ultrasound 🙂

  5. you are reading my mind and i’m telling myself the same thing. 80% are good odds! I mean, my FET was only 45%-50% change of working and i was happy about those odds so we should be happy about 80% odds! if it makes you feel better my symptoms are coming and going too. mostly i’m just tired all the time – that is the only consistent, but i could easily just be worrying myself into being tired all the time! As far as cramping, i’ve had some weird pulling sensations as well and i know that’s common.

    just hang in there. it’s out of our hands now. hoping we both get wonderful u/s news

  6. 80% is great odds. You are doing it. Freak out and all it sounds like perfect pregnancy progression to me 🙂
