4 weeks!!

I still can't believe I can actually say that I'm 4 weeks PREGNANT! It's so surreal. But definitely real! Today's test really showed that, haha. So dark.

I can also say... I'm ENGAGED!!

That's right. After almost 21 months of dating, Doug popped the question. My heart is so happy, it could explode! The ring is gorgeous and we BOTH can't stop staring at it!!

I'm excited to finally be able to start taking weekly belly shots AND a weekly pregnancy questionnaire! I also have my first OBGYN appointment today, just to meet with them and I'm sure they'll do some tests and ask some questions, although no ultrasound. Still have 13 more days until that!

How far along? 4 weeks. <3
Total weight gain/loss: I was up to 119 at one point (due to bloating/OHSS/fertility drugs, etc.) and am now back at my pre-IVF weight of 115.
Maternity clothes? My regular pants don't feel (thanks to the bloat) and neither doese my bra, so I'm already wearing my Be-Band, which I figured (that's why I bought it so early!) And I have one maternity top which is definitely the most comfortable. But fortunately, I'm a huge fan of long tanks, so I have a lot of those which come in handy to try and keep this big bloated belly (and baby!) warm.
Stretch marks? I don't *think* so - but last night I looked down at my boobs and SWORE that I was already getting new ones. (I have them already on my boobs/butt from a huge growth spurt when I was 10.)
Sleep: I wake up in the middle of the night to pee. I wake up early and can't fall back asleep. I'm exhausted all day, but am having a tough time falling asleep at night. I think a lot of it (and my other problems) are attributed to the OHSS though.

Best moment this week: Getting my BFP! Very closely followed by getting engaged!
Have you told family and friends: Yes - all of Doug and I's family and close friends know, with the exception of my Grandma, who we will be telling in person this weekend.
Miss Anything? Feeling comfortable. Again, it's from the OHSS and I can't wait until it goes away!

Movement: Obviously not.
Food cravings: No more than usual. But I am starving ALL the time it seems.
Anything making you queasy or sick: The thought of a burger and the smell of smoke - left me running to the bathroom, spitting and dry heaving. Luckily daddy-to-be ordered some patches and will be quitting VERY SOON!
Have you started to show yet: Definitely - unfortunately, it's all bloat/OHSS at this point. Can't wait until I am more comfortable and have a real BABY belly!
Gender prediction: I have some mommy's intuition that there's a boy in there. Either a singleton boy, or boy/girl twins. Daddy is guessing girl/girl twins. We won't know if it's 1 or 2 for 13 more days, and we won't know the gender(s) for 14 more weeks!
Labor Signs: Obviously not.
Belly Button in or out? Same.
Wedding rings on or off? Engagement ring - ON! <3
Happy or Moody most of the time: Over the moon, ecstatic, excited, thrilled!!!!!! With lots of happy tears.
Looking forward to: March 5th, when we find out if we're having ONE or TWO!!

(So so bloated from OHSS!)
