Sweet! I'm already annoying our baby!

Waist Measurements: 34" at belly button

Weigh In: 123lbs

Pregnancy Symptoms this:
  • Weird food...snack, cravings
  • Still not hungry...
Pregnancy first this week: I have been eating the most random things this week, one day I had Hot tamales, sunflower seed and teddy grams all in one sitting. Still no food aversions. I am very thankful for the ease, so far, of this pregnancy.

My Pregnancy Brain: Still not really felling pregnant. I hope I start showing soon, its going to be so much fun.

Pregnancy Prep: I picked the colors for the baby room :)

Dr Visits: Nope

Belly Shot:
What the baby looks like this week: S/he is about two-and-a-half inches long. Already has pretty much every structure, organ and system needed for life, s/he is a perfect little miniature human being. One thing I love is s/he can officially be Bugged By Me. Reflexes have developed, so if I push on my uterus, s/he will squirm and move in response. I love this quote for Alpha mom "you can't feel it, but it sure is fun to imagine getting flipped off by your fetus."

Scary Week

Waist Measurements: 34" at belly button

Weigh In: 122lbs

Pregnancy Symptoms this:
  • Sciatic Nerve Pain...ouch
  • Never Hungry...hence the weight loss
Pregnancy first this week: Paul finally got to see the baby :) He cried when he saw the heart beat. I'm sure the build up to it helped...not finding a heart beat. She tried for about 5 min...felt like 20...she couldn't find a heart beat, the baby is really low. She decided to play it safe and do an ultrasound. As soon as she put the transponder down we saw the heart beat ***sigh***. Oh yeah, the Dr. told me to lay off the prenatal vitamins they are taking away my appetite.

My Pregnancy Brain: Still not really felling pregnant. Seeing the baby today was really reassuring

Pregnancy Prep: Still nothing...

Dr Visits: Had one today! :) I love the Midwife's I chose!

Belly Shot:
What the baby looks like this week: Our baby is just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, an is now almost fully formed. S/he's already busy kicking and stretching. S/he is officially a fetus, and is now human-baby looking with non-webbed fingers and toes.

Graduation Week!

Waist Measurements: 33" at belly button

Weigh In: 123lbs according to the wii.

Pregnancy Symptoms this:
  • Irritable...I need to be careful or I might end up a single mom...lol
  • make the tiredness go away
  • back pain
What I Learned: How easy it is to cry when your pregnant....over anything.

Pregnancy first this week: The back pain.. it sucks, its a sharp shooting pain down my lower back.

My Pregnancy Brain: Because I really don't have many pregnancy symptoms, I've had my episodes of doubt. Am I really pregnant? I almost re-took a pregnancy test...but I didn't . I can't wait till next monday when I get to hear the heart beat.

Pregnancy Prep: Still nothing...

Dr Visits: None this week.

Belly Shot:


What the baby looks like this week: S/he is officially a fetus by the end of this week. S/he over an inch long, and has a heartbeat strong enough to be heard with a Doppler.
Most importantly the most delicate and critical development period is over. I can breathe a sigh of relief over that.

No More Tail!

Waist Measurements: 33" at belly button (looks like it was just a gas and food baby :))

Weigh In: 123lbs according to the wii. (again I'm not bloated anymore, so that helps)

Pregnancy Symptoms this:
  • Cold :( it sucks cause I cant take anything for it.
  • Irritable...Paul's loving it lol
  • The tiredness continues
  • Certain food smells make me nauseous
What I Learned: It really sucks to be sick while pregnant.

Pregnancy first this week: Other than my first cold while pregnant nothing too exciting happened.

My Pregnancy Brain: Its been a little scary being sick seeing that a fever could cause severe damage to the baby. Luckily I haven't noticed a fever yet but I'm definitely on the look out just in case I need to take some children's tylenol.

Pregnancy Prep: Still nothing. Soon I hope.

Dr Visits: None this week, we have one the monday after the wedding where we get to listen to the heart beat...I can't wait.

Belly Shot:What the baby looks like this week: The baby is about the size of a grape this week. S/He has fingers and toes and eyelids and ears. External boy and girl-parts are present, but won't be really distinguishable for another couple of weeks...Bummer. It's heart has finished dividing into four chambers, and the valves are starting to form. Oh yeah the embryonic "tail" is completely gone.
