Bumpdate | 6 Weeks

Bumpdate | 6 Weeks

How Far Along?:  6 Weeks!

Weight Gain: I actually lost weight! Earlier this week I was about 115 (Which is still normal for me!) But this morning I weighed myself and I'm 113.6!

Gender?: Not sure yet! We're really hoping for a baby girl, but of course a healthy bub is the most important thing!

How Big is Baby?: Baby is the size of a sweet pea! Little babe is measuring roughly 0.25 inches long at this point and the heart has most likely started beating! This babe is growing so fast, that in a week it will have doubled in size.

Symptoms: Practically none! Besides these stupid cold sores. It's been so frustrating because when one seems to go away another (or two) pop up. They don't get gross though, more like a rash? It's odd. My midwife prescribed me Valtrex, which is an antiviral pill. I take it twice a day for 3 days and then once a day for 30 days. Hoping this kicks it for good! Other than the hormones causing a cold sore breakout, I'm just tired and peeing more haha. Nothing exciting and I'm hoping to keep the morning sickness at bay!

Any Food Cravings?: Eggs and salads! I've also been a fan of burgers.

Sleep: I'm so tired all the time and lately when I fall asleep, I end up waking up every couple hours to pee. It's already begun haha.

Stretch Marks?: Nothing new, hoping it stays that way, I can't imagine getting any new ones after the twins haha.

Maternity Clothes?: Not yet! But I have starting looking at my favorite maternity sites for ideas, this pregnancy I'm determined to look cute and be comfy. I also don't want to ruin my non pregnancy clothes like I seem to do in every pregnancy haha.

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

What Do You Miss the Most?: So far, nothing I have been feeling pretty good!

What Are You Most Excited For This Next Week?: My FIRST ULTRASOUND!!! Ahhh y'all I'm both excited and a bundle of nerves. The first one always makes me anxious. Not having symptoms this pregnancy has made me a little nervous, so praying everything is okay! I'm also looking forward to the twins' birthday party and celebrating them turning THREE!

Labor Signs?: Nope!
