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.
