4 weeks (first weekly update!!!)

I can't believe I actually get to post one of these! This is so exciting!!

How Far Along? 4 weeks

How Big is Baby? the size of a poppy seed. so tiny!

Total Weight Gain: none

Maternity Clothes? of course not

Stretch Marks? hopefully not!

Sleep: I was so excited the first 3 or 4 nights, that I didn't get much sleep. I would just lay there thinking about how amazing this was! Even last night, I woke up really early and couldn't fall back to sleep thinking about it all.

Best Moment this Week: Finding out we have a baby on the way!!! And telling our families! I also read today that the heart should start beating around the 21st day. It's incredible to think our baby already has a beating heart!

Miss Anything:  nothing at all. so happy to move on to this new chapter of our lives!

Movement: not for a while!

Food Cravings: Well the two days after we found out, I couldn't hardly eat because I was so excited! Now, I'm starving ALL the time.

Anything making you queasy or sick: nope.

Gender: I guess boy right now.

Labor Signs:  yikes.

Symptoms: I've had some cramping off and on since before my period was due. It isn't constant, but more like sharp pinches a few times a day. Towards the end of the 4th week, I think it's mostly stopped. My boobs have been really sore. I've started sleeping in a sport's bra. The size hasn't changed though. I've felt very sleep the past two days starting around 1. It's so hard to stay energetic in the classroom when you can't stop yawning! The main thing is the starvation!!!! I am hungry all the time! I'm scared I'll gain a ton of weight. I've never been so hungry!

Belly Button in or out: in

Happy or Moody most of the time? Really happy. This is the happiest I've ever felt in my life. I do get a little moody at work when the kids act up or I'm tired. I do find myself tearing up sometimes when I think about this sweet, little baby!

Looking Forward to: Our first doctor's appointment on Valentine's day! <3

  3. I'm seeing a trend because I thought the same thing. Nice to get to see you! How fun!

  4. Haha thanks guys! Maybe in the next one, I'll remember to smile!
