Bumpdate | 6 Weeks

Bumpdate | 6 Weeks


How Far Along?: 6 Weeks!

Weight Gain: 3 lbs. I some how lost a pound in the last week. Not sure how since I haven't moved off my couch and I'm eating the same. But hey...I'm not complaining!

Gender?: Not sure yet, but we are hoping it's a little girl! I really want to look into the early blood gender test this time around.

How Big is Baby?: Baby is as big as a sweet pea! Our little one is about 0.25 in from crown to rump and will probably double in size by next week.

Symptoms: I started to cramp pretty bad this week which made me nervous, but I was told that it's normal this early on. Still exhausted as all get out and bloating. I feel like a balloon that keeps getting pumped with more and more air each week...my boobs are much more tender this week, so that has been fun. Morning sickness also started to rear its ugly head. SO far no vomiting and I'd like to keep it that way!

Any Food Cravings?: Nothing so far.

Sleep: Every chance I get I find myself dozing off. I can't count the number of times Wes has found me on the couch just passed out cold. I can NOT stay awake to save my life.

Stretch Marks?: Just the tiny ones from the twins which are pretty much invisible under my extra belly skin. Hoping I don't get any new ones this go around.

Maternity Clothes?: Not yet!

Wedding Ring On or Off?: On.

What Do You Miss the Most?: Having energy! What I would give to have even a fraction of the energy the twins have...

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: I'm so excited to spend Father's Day with my amazing hubby this weekend. He really is a rockstar for putting up with my moody self!

Labor Signs?: Nope!

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: Seeing our little peanut! Baby was too little to measure, but we got to see the heartbeat flickering away. I can't wait to actually hear it!
