This is my 7 week pregnancy update! Things got pretty intense this week and there were lots of emotional ups and downs.


Major Symptoms:

  • Fatigue

It is just always there. It doesn’t matter how much I sleep, I’m just always tired.

  • Nausea

There was no appeasing it this week. One day I ended up throwing up 3 times. I was miserable with it. I have food aversions to just about everything!

  • Spotting

I noticed brown spotting one night just before bed. It was such a small amount, but enough to heighten my anxiety. It was gone by mid next day, but I had a follow-up HCG to check that all was fine.

Minor Symptoms:

  • Bloating

This comes and goes. Some days it is there, some not.

  • Reflux

This is like the bloating. It isn’t very frequent, but it is happening here and there.

  • Emotions!

With the spotting and nausea, I was a bit of an emotional wreck this week. Hormones certainly don’t make things any easier.

  • Poor Sleep

Whether it was from the anxiety or hormones, I’m not sure. However, I really struggled to sleep well this week. I was uncomfortable and just super alert. It makes facing the day that bit more challenging.

Until next time!
