7 Weeks

How far along? 7w0d - it's the size of a blueberry and generating 100 new brain cells per minute.

Weight loss/gain:  It fluctuates so much on a daily basis that I can't even tell what is real gain.  Yesterday I was up 4.2 lbs and today it was 2.2 lbs.

Maternity clothes: Not for a while yet.  I did buy some new ones online from Old Navy and Gap because it was 35% off, but I don't anticipate wearing them for quite some time.

Symptoms:  Nausea is coming in waves recently, which is kind of new since I had almost none with Andrew. Bloating gets worse throughout the day and I still can't poop.

Sleep: Kinda sucky.  Andrew woke me up at 12:11 AM today and I had trouble getting back to sleep.

Best moment this week? Still nothing since nothing has happened.

Movement: Not for a while.

Food cravings:  None to speak of.

Belly button in or out?  In (hopefully for the long haul).

What I miss?  Regularity

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:  I hate myself for even thinking this, but I keep wondering if we made a mistake by going for 2. We have a good routine and not that it's easy, but we have a good thing going. I worry about screwing that up.

Still nothing to see besides my bloat, but here I am in all my pale poofy glory:


  1. We haven't started trying for #2 yet, but I think its going to happen quite a lot later in the year.... I completely understand about feeling like you don't want to mess up a good routine! We have a great one too and sometimes I think, really? We really want to change what we have worked so hard for? But, I know the answer is a big YES, and I am sure it is for you too. Before you know it, you'll have #2 and a new great routine :-)

    1. Thank you. Like I said, I hate that I even think that. I know eventually it will seem like second nature to have two kids, but right now I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.

  2. You are like the tiniest and cutest thing evahhh!

    1. Thanks! I don't feel tiny and cute, though, especially in the afternoon when the bloat reaches ridiculous proportions!

  3. I'm sure every mom feels like this while pregnant with #'s 2 or more. You can do it! It will totally be an adjustment, but that doesn't mean a bad adjustment.

    1. Thank you. I know I'm being stupid, I just worry about what impact this will have on Andrew and how big of a change it will be for all of us. I know in the long run he will love having a little sibling and we will love him/her to pieces. I guess maybe this is the hormones talking...
