Bumpdate | 4 Weeks

Bumpdate | 4 Weeks

How Far Along?:  4 Weeks!

Weight Gain: About a pound so far, but it's all bloating! I'm really trying to eat healthier this pregnancy AND workout as much as possible!

Gender?: Not sure yet! We swayed girl and hope it worked!

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of a poppyseed! Baby is now known as a blastocyst, a teeny tiny ball of cells and is busy settling into its new home (my uterus), prepping for all the major development that's about to happen in the first trimester. The first placenta cells are forming, which is so cool since it's what will support this little baby until delivery!

Symptoms: I'm pretty tired, but I honestly feel pretty normal.  I have a little bit of bloating, but for the most part I feel totally fine. I'm slightly gassy and do pee more and go to the bathroom more than normal though. I'm sure things will be must more exciting in a few weeks.

Any Food Cravings?: Beef...Seriously ALL the hamburgers. I normally am not a huge meat eater anymore (I mean I was Vegan there for a while haha) so it must be something about the iron that my body is craving. I'm also loving eggs right now...and smoothies. I'm sorta all over the place.

Sleep: I LOVE sleep. If I had the time to I would nap during the day and I definitely don't enjoy waking up in the mornings haha.

Stretch Marks?: Nothing new, hoping it stays that way!

Maternity Clothes?: Not yet, I'm hoping I'll have a while before I have to break those bad boys out.

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On. I hope it stays that way!

What Do You Miss the Most?: So far, nothing!

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: Hitting 5 weeks! That's around the time this little bean gets a heart beat! It's also about to be March and the twins turn THREE!

Labor Signs?: NOOOO and it better stay that way for a long time.

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: Finding out I was pregnant! I can't wait to enjoy this pregnancy!
