7 weeks along! Over halfway through the first trimester and the weeks are rolling by thanks to a little one who keeps me very busy.
The nausea has actually evened out. Like my pregnancy with Bella, I feel the sickest at night. Also the food aversions are the worst then as well. But it’s nothing like how sick I was when I was pregnant with the twins. And I am so thankful for that. I take a Zofran in the evening and I’m usually ok through the next day. I don’t take that for granted at all.
I have to admit, as I was looking for pics to go with this post, I started craving blueberry pancakes something fierce. Being that it’s 10 PM and I’m the only one home, that’s not going to happen, but man. I really need pancakes right now.
Anyway, here’s the past week for you!
How Far Along: 7 weeks 2 days
Size of baby: Blueberry!
Sleep: Having to pee all the time means I wake up and have a choice: Be uncomfortable but get a good night’s sleep. Or pee and then lay awake in bed for an hour trying to fall back asleep. Spoiler alert: I choose sleep.
Total Weight Gain: O_o It’s not pretty. That’s ok, there will be time to lose it after the baby.
Symptoms: Lots of peeing. Nausea but it’s normal? It’s weird to have normal sickness. Also – I’m so, so tired. I took 2 naps on Sunday. My poor daughter.
Maternity Clothes: Everything but the tops. I haven’t bought any yet because in my mind, that’s going too far at 7 weeks… I can wear them. Just not buy them. I don’t know.
Go-to eats: Salad, cereal, fruit. We also started juicing and I’m loving that. Except when Sam leaves a half gallon of it in the fridge and it smells like kaley/beety/oranges in the morning. ::barf::
Best moment of the week:
Gender: I keep thinking of this one as a girl, but Sam is convinced it’s a boy. And either way we really don’t care as long as it’s healthy.
What I wish people knew: It’s really, really hard to feel “excited” about this pregnancy. I am, but it’s toned by a numbness that comes with the PTSD of what I went through and keep expecting to happen again. This is normal, but it’s still very difficult not to beat myself up for.
What I’m looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat soon!
Milestones: Arms and legs are coming along! Yay for limbs!
