I'm six weeks pregnant today. For some reason it seems like a milestone to me, though I can't say why. For some reason it seems to be a trifle silly to really think of being pregnant before this point. Of course it's also the point at which you can guarantee having symptoms.

For the last week or so I've been hungry nearly all the time. The past few days I've also been needing a lot more sleep. And today I had my first incident of prolonged and pronounced 'morning' sickness, brought on by a 90 minute commute home after a day that was busy enough that I hadn't had time to eat anything since lunch. Symptoms are good. We like symptoms, they mean the pregnancy is not yet doomed. I would actually feel more reassured if I were throwing up like a bulimic and an all-you-can-eat buffet, but you have to work with what you've got.

I hope they're both OK in there. I probably sound a bit morbid, and maybe some people might get the mistaken impression that I don't want both. I do want both of them, though. I want them very badly. I just feel sometimes like actually expecting to get two babies out of this is a bit greedy. I feel as if expecting things to go well is bad luck, and I gotten a tad superstitious about this sort of thing over the past three and a half years. And so I do hope for the best case scenario, two healthy babies in June, but I certainly don't count on it.
