7 weeks!

How far along: 7 weeks

Size of baby: Blueberry

Physical symptoms: Boobies are still sore, and they are getting even larger.  As far as morning sickness goes, I now have nausea pretty much all day, even though I haven't actually thrown up.  To be more accurate, I alternate between nausea and being starving.  Sometimes I can't even tell the difference.  No, I am not complaining, because I know that morning all-day sickness means the baby is still in there.

Weight gain/loss: I think I'm up about a pound now.  It's hard to tell, though, since I can't tell the difference between IVF bloat and pregnancy bloat anymore.

Maternity clothes: I went maternity shopping with my best friend (who is ready to pop), and bought 2 pairs of work pants and an adorable shirt.  My BFF also gave me a ton of hand-me-down maternity clothes, which is awesome.  I can actually wear almost everything now with plenty of room to grow.  And the pants are actually adorable! (plus, I love how the stretchy panel holds everything in.  No more love handles haha!

Stretch marks: Not yet

Sleep: I still fall asleep pretty quick, but I am now waking up 2-3 times a night to pee.  The dreams are getting weirder and more vivid, which also keeps me from sleeping very soundly.

Best moment since last week: Well, as odd as it sounds, the morning sickness showing up.  I feel like it is proof that something is going on inside of me, even if it isn't a whole lot of fun.

Movement: Way too early.

Cravings:  I think it's still early for craving, although I begged the husband to bring me ice cream yesterday after work.  I don't know that it was a craving---I'm pretty sure I'm just a fat ass.

Gender: Still way too early, but I am so eager to find out!  (I did have an amazing dream about having a baby girl)

Labor signs: Way too early!

Belly button:  Innie

What I miss: Margaritas, cold lunchmeat, a normal appetite.

What I am looking forward to:  Our 8-week ultrasound next week!


  1. Can't wait to hear about your 8 week ultra sound!

  2. I was hoping for an update!! LOL at the fat-ass comment. Yay only 1 week to go until the u/s!

  3. I have the same all-day nausea, punctuated by moments of hunger (they come on fast!), but most of the time I can't decide if I'm nauseated or hungry. Fun!

    1. Oh the joys of pregnancy...I wouldn't change it for the world :)

  4. I will be ready for those 8 week pictures! I'm sorry about the mornng sickness. Somehow I have made it 13 1/2 weeks with twins and no puking. :)
