First Trimester

Cold Hands and Feet

Dear Midwife,
I just found out I was pregnant last Monday. I am just going in to my 5th week. Over the weekend my hands and feet feel like they have been immersed in ice and stay cold. On top of that first thing in the morning and when I am very tired I have a "pins and needles" sensation in my hands.

OMG i am so sick of being sick and tired all the time. I am like nauseous and i feel gross all the time. i am so ready for the second trimester to start. Nothin really tastes good and nothing really looks good. EW!

The emotional rollercoaster

Everything is normal at least so far in terms of blood work. The only number I know is my beta hcg and it's really good. So, that's one less thing to worry about today. I've decided after much crying and sobbing that pregnancy is going to be the most difficult roller coaster of my life. It is absolutely terrifying and is leading me to OCD. You know, where you check the toilet paper every time you go. Or feeling your breasts to make sure they are still a little sore. If it weren't me I would find it comical!
