6 week bumpdate

How Far Along: 6 weeks and 2 days

Meds: All taken daily – Prenatal, Omega + DHA, Folic Acid 1 mg, Vitamin D 2000mg, Vitamin B12, Probiotic, Estrace 400 mg, Prometrium 200mg, PIO 1ml

Baby is the size of: a grain of rice

Best Moment This Week: Seeing baby blob on the ultrasound, being so shocked I forgot to ask for a photo, and realizing that baby is measuring ahead.

Total Weight Gain: Not sure. I stepped on the scale the other day and I actually was down a bit. I need to start tracking it consistently.

Maternity Clothes: I’ve noticed on my really bloated days some pants/shirts are feeling tight, but I’m trying to work with what I’ve got in my closet. I actually purchased my first maternity wear today. I got a plain t-shirt from Old Navy (currently too big, but will grow into it) and a dress from Thyme Maternity to wear to my Godson’s baptism next month. I wanted something comfortable that I wouldn’t be squeezing into.

Stretch Marks: I have some pre-existing stretch marks from my pudgy belly. Nothing new though.

Sleep: Super tired in the evenings. I have been going to bed between 8-10pm which is about 2 hours earlier than I normally do. I also napped Friday and today. I try to resist the urge, but my husband insists I get some sleep rather than being grouchy.

Symptoms: Tired, hungry (which turns into HANGRY if I don’t eat), sore boobs, bloated, lots of milky discharge… but I’m NOT SICK at all! Whohoo!

Food Cravings: Nothing unusual yet this week. I won’t deny it. Last week, I wanted ice cream and fries. And candy! I never eat gummy candies!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing! I’ve only had two nauseous moments when we were driving but that was closer to the beginning of week 5.

Movement: Just gas. Pffffffttttt….

Baby Bump: Barely there.

Gender Prediction: BOY! We do plan on finding out, but I’ve been saying boy since we experienced our loss in October.

Labour Signs: Hell no. Too early.

Belly Button In or Out?: Innie to start!

Wedding Rings on or off?: On.

Happy or Moody?: Ohhhh… I’m generally happy, unless I’m hangry. I have noticed a decreased patience level and increased irritability level. My stupidity tolerance is at zero.

Purchases for baby: The “Coming Soon” frame and a baby blanket from Costco.

Miss Anything?: Hot baths, sex

Looking forward to: Passing our loss milestone at 7 weeks, 1 day. Our next ultrasound at 7 weeks, 6 days.

  1. Hahahahaha! Your stupidity tolerance…mine is almost always at zero!! That made me laugh so hard!! Glad things seem to be going well so far! Hopefully you don’t have to experience much nausea at all!


  2. Awww it sounds like everything is going so well for you! I’m so excited!! I missed hot baths too. I like my water super hot so it was a bummer when I couldn’t do that any longer.


  3. This mad me realize I missed a few questions on mine lol. You can take a hot bath as long as it’s not over 100 degrees for up to 15 minutes. The discharge is normal, use panty liners cause it gets worse! Gas has been my enemy too and appears fly it only gets worse also lol. You sound very preggo and that makes me happy! XO
