6 weeks with baby #2

How far along: 6 weeks

How big is baby: a Lentil Bean. baby center's info on baby growth at 6 weeks

Weight gain/loss: Down 4 lbs

Stretch marks: None yet this time. But, I'm sure they'll come.

Sleep: Vivid dreams started already leaving me feeling unrested when I wake. Frequent peeing (5-7 times no joke) doesn't help. 

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Averse to just about everything. The flu didn't help anything. 

Movement: None yet. I felt Cole earlier than the average woman does at 12 weeks. I was a lot thinner then tho but I've also had a kid already and know what to look for so it could go either way. 

What I'm worrying about: A little bit more spotting. I had none of this with Cole. Its unsettling and throws me off until it stops. I try not to be obsessive but thats just downright scary. 

What I'm loving: Not much at this point. I'm so grateful for this little miracle but I truly can't wait to be past the first trimester. I wish the stork was a real thing...or at least I do until around 14 weeks. Then I love being pregnant. 

Symptoms: Nausea. Extreme fatigue. Then there was a whole slew of new symptoms due to the flu but we're going to try to forget those asap. Had to run to the bathroom because of a picture of someone's chicken wings on facebook. 

What I'm looking forward to: Getting anxious to tell family. 

Best moment of the week: Maybe not best but sure is funny (hind-sight). I was climbing into bed and I said to Greg "I suddenly feel hungry. Like, nauseatingly hungry. No...wait...just nauseated." Its crazy how fast my stomach can turn. I have to constantly be grazing. 


About Me

My photo
I'm a new wife and an even newer mom. I have a secret dream to be super-mom. I love to craft, cook, dance and fill my life with as many adventures as possible. I'm slightly crunchy granola but enjoy a good steak. I'm right brained and type B (with some type A tendencies). I thrive best when I get to use my creative juices. I dabble in photography and party planning. I play piano and have a dream to learn the cello. I want to make the most of this one, short life I find myself living.

About This Blog

This blog was originally intended to be a personal journal of my pregnancy journey and all that that entails--shared with only a few close family members. It was a way for me to keep them posted on all things baby and occasionally post a picture of my growing torso so they could see the progress. After several posts, I started to get hooked on other blogs and became motivated to attempt to do more with mine. We'll see how it goes....
