6 Weeks (Eeeeeek!)

Yep, still sinking in that munchkin 2.0 is coming.  It's been over two weeks since I found out, but for some reason it still doesn't seem real.  Doesn't help that my first appt isn't for another 3 weeks.  Maybe once I see him/her (and please dear God let there only be one in there!) on the u/s I'll feel more in touch with this pregnancy.  For now I'm too busy with work and keeping up with my little menace to dwell on the fact that I really am knocked up.

Speaking of my little menace - this weekend I discovered that him being quiet = him getting in to something.


While I was busy filling his bathtub he was behind me quietly unrolling half a roll of toilet paper. He's standing there looking at it like that because I had just asked "What are you doing?!?".  Gotta love my little troublemaker!

Anyway, I figure I'll start my weekly check-in, just like I did with munchkin 1.0, so here we go:

How far along? 6w0d - it's the size of a sweetpea and starting to sprout a nose, eyes, ears, chin and cheeks.

Weight loss/gain:  My starting weight with this pregnancy is 133 - 1 lb more than when I got pregnant with Andrew.  Considering how much my weight is fluctuating on a daily basis with bloat and crap I'm not even going to note it here yet.

Maternity clothes: No way - I should have a while before I need to break in to my box of clothes.  Unfortunately this pregnancy is opposite seasons so I'm not sure how many I can re-use.  At least being pregnant over the summer means I'll get to wear lots of skirts and dresses this time instead of sweaters.

Symptoms:  A little bit of queasiness, sleeping like crap and unfortunately cement bowel started early this go around.  Yay.

Sleep: It's hit or miss already. I woke up at 3:45 this morning and never fell back to sleep.  I'm tired.

Best moment this week? Nothing has happened yet.

Movement: No, still have a while for that! Hopefully it'll be sooner than 21 weeks like it was with Andrew, though.

Food cravings:  None to speak of.

Belly button in or out?  In and should be that way for quite some time. It never popped out with Andrew and I'm hoping it's the same this time.

What I miss?  Nothing much yet.

What I'm looking forward to?  First appt on 1/29 and getting to see what's in there.

Milestones:  Nothing yet.

What I'm nervous about:  My ability to handle 2 kids.  This thought it still kind of terrifying to me.

And there is absolutely nothing to see besides a little bloat, but here I am at 6 weeks:

  2. yay!! You seemed to do so well adjusting to having Andrew, I think you'll be just fine with two. And summer maternity clothes are fun! Lots of skirts and stretchy tank tops.

    1. I hope so! If this one is as rambunctious as Andrew we are in for it! I am kind of looking forward to summer maternity clothes, just not the heat.
