Just a quick update

The big news: Chris' team won their football game Saturday by 31 to 12! It's the first game they've won this season. He even got to play quarterback on the last play of the game.

Now, on to the pregnancy update:

Still feel tired a lot. More symptoms are beginning to slooooowly creep up. My breasts are starting to feel more tender. My back and legs are starting to hurt more. And I have to pee every 10 minutes. Last night when I got home from work, I had a headache and a fever (99.6). Tylenol took care of it, and I woke up with no fever. Maybe it was a fluke thing. I'll keep an eye on it.

Got two of the books I ordered in. What to Expect When you're Expecting and the What to Expect Pregnancy Journal and Organizer.

My first prenatal appointment will be November 6. Hopefully, we'll get to hear a heartbeat. Roberta used to do an ultrasound every visit. I hope she still does. My belly is so bloated it's had to tell if it's baby or bloat. Would like an ultrasound on the first visit to date the pregnancy. By my calculations, I'll be 7 weeks on that day. This makes me due around June 25. If I actually got pregnant a month ago and had a preiod even though I was pregnant, that would make me almost 11 weeks, and my due date would be May 30. Big difference. Although I do really think I'm only 4 1/2 weeks right now (will be 5 weeks Thursday). I suppose we shall see.

Weight gain so far: 2.4 pounds. Have decided to weigh every Thursday morning, as a way of keeping up with the weeks.
