Bumpdate | 5 Weeks

Bumpdate | 5 Weeks

How Far Along?:  5 Weeks!

Weight Gain: Nothing really yet! Still fluctuating between113-115 which is my normal.  I'm really trying to eat healthier this pregnancy AND workout as much as possible so I don't gain as much as I did with my last two pregnancies! So far so good! I've worked out three times this last week and I always feel so good after!

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

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of an apple seed! Our little embryo is now measurable at a wee 0.13 inches from crown to rump. In the next week, baby will almost double in size. The heart will start beating by the end of this week! Grow, baby, grow!

Symptoms: Lately I haven't noticed any really obvious symptoms. I'm more tired, my hair is greasy, I'm gassy sometimes, but for the most part I feel pretty normal! Although I did have an ugly coldsore show it's face and I'm not happy about it. I usually get one in every pregnancy so I knew it was coming but gahhhhhh I need this to go away. Hoping since I'm fairly symptom free that it means this will be a nice pregnancy...I can dream can't I?

Any Food Cravings?: Eggs. This seems to be a theme with me in pregnancy.

Sleep: I actually have a little bit more energy this week, but I still get tired more quickly. I'm also not sleeping as soundly as I did before. Not sure why but I hope I can sleep better here soon!

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

Maternity Clothes?: Not yet! But I have starting looking at my favorite maternity sites for ideas!

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?: The twins are turning THREE here soon and the air show will be in town! Even though Wes will be gone in the field I think it will be a good week!

Labor Signs?: Nope!

Favorite Memory From Last Week?: This last week has been a crazy one and one day Wes went out and got cheeseburgers, fries, and a milkshake for me! It made me so happy and we just cuddled on the couch and watched Netflix. I love moments like that!

P.S. Make sure to check out the maternity tee that I added to my shop! Totally appropriate for how I feel this pregnancy haha!
