I have come to think of this pregnancy as a Wii Fit game. The game that's an obstacle course and you have to jump over logs that come towards you or dodge big black balls that can knock you off if they hit you.

My weeks are those logs and I am so scared that I am going to get hit with one of those black balls and I will get knocked down.

I am taking this pregnancy one week at a time. Actually more like one day at a time. Today I reached my first hurdle. I am 5 weeks today. That may not seem like a big deal to some people but its a big deal for me. My first miscarriage was at 5 weeks. I also got my blood test back from this morning and it was 3,419. 7 days ago it was 220, so its going up nicely. The nurse said the numbers look great. I have to continue the progesterone injection every night and estrogen twice a day.

I have our first ultrasound on the 17th. I am looking forward to that and I pray all will go great with that. That will be my second hurdle I need to get through. I will be 6 weeks and 3 days. MY babies never make it past 6 weeks, so this will be a huge hurdle.

My symptoms are about the same. Just more tired, which is all good. Trust me I am not complaining! I just think my body is telling me "hey rest a bit while I get this baby to develop!"So I do. I am usually in bed by 8 pm. On the weekends I take naps during the day. Something I never used to do.
I also need to eat every 2 to 3 hours. I get very hungry. I cant seem to get enough salad and fruit, which is good. At least I am not craving cakes, ice cream or candy.

I am just taking one week, one day, one hurdle, at a time and I'm enjoying every minute of being pregnant.
I pray I will reach the end of this obstacle course. I know it will be long and there will be many hurdles that will need to be jumped over and in the end, my sweet baby will be put in my arms.
