Aug. 30: 7 Weeks
Size of baby: According to babyzone.com, he/she's about the size of a blue berry. I read this a few days ago, and then, unexpected had blueberries for lunch… it was a little awkward. lol
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I think I’m up about 3 pounds. It’s hard to tell… I’ve fluctuated by a couple of pounds up and down for months.
Maternity Clothes: Still several weeks off from this… I hope! Though, I did try on my bridesmaid’s dress for my brother’s wedding in October… it’s tight, not gonna lie. I think it’s because the extra weight has all happened in my chest! Makes it very hard to close a zipper!
Gender: I know what I feel/hope it is… but I’m not tellin’!
Movement: Way too early I think.
What I miss: TMI aleart… being able to poop. Lol This is has been my biggest/most life effecting symptom so far.
Sleep: Sleeping like a rock… until I have to pee. =P
Symptoms: Still a little dizzy in the mornings, but have switched up my schedule so that I eat breakfast first thing… that seems to help. Also a little nauseous… but more “pre-scary-carnival-ride” nauseous than post. ;) Also have been absolutely EXHAUSTED! I spent all of last weekend lying around with no energy to do anything.
Cravings: Food, food and more food. I’m hungry ALL the time!
Best Moment this week: Starting to actually FEEL pregnant. I think I’ve been in denial, but the symptoms are finally starting to make it feel real!
(P.S. I hate the word “symptoms”… makes it sound like a disease! What other word can I use?)
What I am looking forward to: Telling my parents and brothers! We’re going to go down this weekend (Labor Day) to visit and I’m going to tell them. Funny side note: I’m actually at my parents right now writing this… but Jacob wasn’t able to come down (I’m here in the middle of the week for a bridal shower), so I need to keep it a secret… so hard!
