Week 5, the beginning of this incredible journey!

3 years ago

I am approximately 5 weeks pregnant now, and I see my doctor on Friday. I'm somewhat nervous for the needles and bloodwork, but it's all for my little bundle of joy so it's completely worth it! 

How far along? 5 weeks & 1 day!! (Ithink!)
How big is baby? Size of a sweet pea
Total weight gain/loss: Some weight loss, I think the lack of appetite and lack of alcohol could be to blame!
Maternity Clothes: None yet, but I am bloated and the boobies are hurting! 
Have you started to show yet? Nope! 
Sleep: Sleep has been pretty good, with the exception of waking in the middle of the night out of a dead sleep and running to the bathroom to pee, but I'll take that anyday for our little peanut!
Best moment this week: Telling our family, and having my husband be extra supportive of me and help around the house more!
Miss Anything? Kinda missing my 2 cups of coffee in the morning, but a small halfcaf will do for now!
Movement: None
Food Cravings: Nothing out of the ordinary  yet, maybe salty foods ? 
Anything make you queasy or sick? Nothing yet
Gender prediction: I think it's going to be a girl, L thinks its a girl, T thinks its a boy and so does Daddy!
Symptoms: Tired, Lower back pain, bloated!
Major purchases this week? Pregnancy chalkboard! :) 
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound on Friday, really hoping for a strong heartbeat <3
