Let’s talk about what six weeks pregnant feels like and what the beginning of pregnancy looks like from a second time mom.
What the Beginning of Pregnancy Looks Like
Okay so, 6 weeks pregnant symptoms… halfway through the first trimester! It is so crazy to me that I am 6 weeks pregnant for the third time. Things are so far so good, I was feeling pretty awful with both of my past pregnancies at this point. This week has been a pretty one for us as a family. Anthony has had a major project at work and has a lot of late nights and early mornings. I have come to my moms about an hour away from where Anthony and I live to get some campaign shoots and work done. I also had to get fingerprints done for my graduate program practicum I have to complete this semester! So its been quite a busy week but we will slow down this weekend and get some quality family time because we are doing a staycation I am super excited about!
Let’s talk about what you are here for: what six weeks pregnant feels like!
What Six Weeks Pregnant Feels Like
First Trimester Pregnancy Symptom: EXHAUSTION
What six weeks pregnant feels like part one: One of the major symptoms I am feeling is EXHAUSTION. In my opinion, I think exhaustion is just as bad as morning sickness. Pregnancy exhaustion is the only exhaustion that literally takes over me no matter what, and I become a nap potato. I hate adult naps they make me feel lazy and unaccomplished but for some reason being pregnant, I have to take them or I cant make it through the day. Not even, coffee helps. The bad thing is I am only 6 weeks pregnant and have another 6 weeks before it gets slightly better. I am hoping these next 6 weeks of pregnancy fly by!
First Trimester Pregnancy Symptom: Breast Tenderness
What six weeks pregnant feels like part two: At this point, my boobs HURT. I mean like there are times that they hurt by the touch, which is terrible when you have a 15-month-old who finds comfort in putting her hand inside your bra. The boobs are growing up and the nipples are growing also can you believe this happens already at 6 weeks pregnant? You would think after 3 pregnancies I would be used to it but I am NOT. It is okay though, I need my body to do whatever it needs to prepare for the months of breastfeeding after the baby arrives. 6 weeks pregnant and it is only the beginning the darker areolas will soon come!
First Trimester Pregnancy Symptom: Nausea or vomiting
What six weeks pregnant feels like part three: NO nausea or vomiting. This is definitely something I want to remember because with Alyssa and Aaliyah I had MAJOR nausea and vomiting. It’s definitely something you can be feeling right now. Its totally normal because of all the hormones your body is feeling.
I hope you enjoyed my post on my 6 weeks pregnant symptoms!
