7 weeks with baby #2

How far along: 7 weeks

How big is baby: a Blueberry. baby center's info on baby growth at 7 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. I get a random craving like a lions choice roast beef sandwich or el maguey and I can keep it down if I'm really craving it. Those were the only 2 meals in the 7 day period that I knew as I was eating it that it would stay down and wouldn't hurt. Most things turn my stomach as I'm eating them. Thank God for granola bars. 

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: Not much. Just keeping my head down and Vicks on my nose until the end of the first trimester (gives me more reaction time to smells). 

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. I had to stop my prenatal vitamins half way through the week. They make me sick the entire day even if I take them on a full stomach as I'm falling asleep. I've tried everything including different brands. If I don't take it, I still have queasy times during the day but I can actually eat and keep my food. I have yet to actually throw up but I've been kneeling at that throne many times already and have been able to stay strong through sheer will power. I'm starting to loose that battle which is why I have to take a few weeks off the prentals. My OB said it was fine when I called to ask and they said to try to take flintstone vitamins. I'm trying but even they set me off for hours. I took a few weeks off of the prentatals with Cole's pregnancy too and it got me through. 

How can watching my two year old run around exuberantly even make me nauseated?

What I'm looking forward to: Getting anxious to have an explanation why I am zero fun and decline every invitation right now. 

Best moment of the week: Getting to tell my family and some of Greg's. We haven't gotten to tell the rest of his but we're hoping to fit it in soon. Schedules have been off and lots of his family has been sick. We're not going anywhere near that again. We want to tell them face-to-face. 


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....
