7 Weeks

Week 7 came in with full force last night.
I was up at 3 to pee
back up at 3:30ish (tmi) because of the acid like diarrhea that was threatening to kill me.
and then back up at 4am to hug the toilet and dry heave until around 5am.

AJ slept through it all...jerk ;)

Anyways, here is the weekly update, next week I plan on adding a photo or two. I think I'm going to try the chalk board with regular cloths and then do one in a black shirt so that we can really see the progression.

How far along? 7 weeks
How big is baby?  A blueberry (how freekin cute is that!)
Total weight gain/loss: probably down, I haven’t been able to eat that much in the past week.
Maternity clothes: Not yet, but I put on a pair of my favorite jeans and they were so snug! I’m blaming bloat, but I’m still getting myself some maternity jeans with Christmas money…those things cost so much I’m gonna get every dollar out of them I can!
Have you started to show yet? Not yet, but I have noticed my lower abdomen is growing a bit more, don’t know if it’s bloat or baby.
Sleep: my back is hurting quite a bit and I have been up a ton to pee.
Best moment this week: Seeing peanut! and how excited everyone in the RE office was. My nurse came running out to hug me and see the sono pics and Dr. H kept saying “that’s not you!” every time the heartbeat came on.
Miss Anything? Coffee…I realllly want a good cup of coffee…and decaf is just not the same.
Movement: Nope, baby is still too small.
Food cravings: apple juice is still a big leader. Mashed potatoes and pork gravy.
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Any reheated meat, Hubs had leftover steak and I about upchucked.
Gender prediction: girl…all we can come up and agree on are girl names…if it’s a boy he will be nameless.
Labor Signs: Nope
Symptoms: Week 7 came in with full force last night! I dry heaved from 4-5am last night!!!
Major purchases this week? Still nothing. But I am going out today to look for something to maybe paint with chalk paint for my bump photos. Don’t know if it counts as major since I’ll probably get it at the thrift store!
Weekly wisdom: even though the fried egg sandwich that your grandma is making you sounds like heaven on a plate, don’t eat it…it will not agree with the baby or the steroid and Metformin you are taking and you will pay later.
Looking forward to:  spending some time alone at home, now that the semester is over I can finally get to cleaning and organizing some things around here! And I don’t want to wait till I’m too big to clean out peanut’s room!


  1. Since you have no boys name, you're gonna get a boy! Get prepared haha try and think of at least one. ;)

    1. oh I have boy names...he just says no to everyone that comes out of my mouth! I have two lists...and he only likes 2 on my girl list...pain in my tush!

  2. Awesome awesome!!! Can't wait to see the bumpdate next week!!!


be nice. be kind. be loving.
