Well, I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and start tracking how things are progressing.  Sorry if you think this is cliche, but this blog is like a journal, and I would love to be able to look back on this later and remember what was going on.  So here goes...

How far along: 6w1d

Size of baby: sweet pea

Physical symptoms: sore boobies, some nausea, weird pain in my rib cage, exhaustion

Weight gain/loss: I actually lost 2 lbs, because my body is still adjusting after IVF and trying to get back to normal.

Maternity clothes: I actually bought maternity leggings because all my regular ones cut into my tummy.  I do have to use the rubber band trick on most of my pants, and I definitely have to wear baggy clothes or else people think I'm 3 months pregnant already!

Stretch marks: Not yet

Sleep: I fall asleep fast, but I wake up a lot to pee during the night and also because I have some weird-ass dreams.  I toss and turn a lot due to being uncomfortable.

Best moment since last week: Our first ultrasound yesterday!  We got to see and hear the heartbeat, which was amazing.

Movement: Way too early.

Cravings: Not yet.  I'm hungry all the time though, and almost everything sounds good.  I do really want a cold turkey sandwich, but that is probably just because I'm trying to stay away from lunchmeat for the most part, so I just want what I can't have.

Gender: Still way too early.

Labor signs: Way too early!

Belly button:  Innie

What I miss: Alcohol!  I know that sounds awful, but a margarita just sounds so awesome to me all the time, and a virgin just doesn't cut it.

What I am looking forward to:  Our next ultrasound in 2 weeks :)


  1. LOL about the margarita. I'm not a drinker (very often) but when I was pregnant I wanted a beer so freakin' bad. I would sniff my husband's sometimes.
