5 Week Update

I've decided to do my weekly updates at the end of each week. I'm not sure if this is what other girls do, but I want the updates to be a review of the week. So, I'll actually be 6 weeks tomorrow, but I'm posting at the end of the 5th week.

How Far Along? 5 weeks

How Big is Baby? About the size of a sesame seed : )

Total Weight Gain: the same

Maternity Clothes? no. I did accidentally buy a maternity shirt at Gap a few years ago. So, I still have that. My friend also gave me a shirt this week. I can't wait to go shopping!

Stretch Marks? no. I'm using the oil every night. My family is very prone to stretch marks, so I know it's inevitable.

Sleep: Not so good. I'm still waking up a lot. a whole lot. I usually use the bathroom about twice in the night, and I've been waking up so hungry! It's hard to fall back asleep with a growing stomach. This is very new for me. I've never had problems sleeping. Also, the past two days I've gotten a cold. My throat is sore, so that doesn't help much.

Best Moment of this Week: Telling our best couple friends and telling my best friend that I grew up with. I also bought a set of newborn gowns. They are so sweet!

Miss Anything: Cold medicine?

Movement: I can't wait!

Food Cravings: I'm not having cravings or nausea.

Anything making you queasy or sick? Not really. Some things do smell a little bad. I was driving to work this morning and could smell the soup in my lunchbox on the seat next to me. How weird! I'm glad I'm not sick, but it also sort of worries me. The book I have said nausea can mean a stronger pregnancy. I know I shouldn't worry, but of course I do.

Labor Signs: nope

Symptoms: Still have the breast tenderness. It's gotten much worse this week. It's hard for me to get comfortable at night. I've been pretty tired too and the hunger comes and goes.

Belly Button in or out: in

Happy or Moody most of the time? Happy! I've been more moody at work. I have less patience for my kids.

Looking Forward to: Our doctor appointment. I feel worried, because I don't feel pregnant. I think it's just been a while since I found out now, and the adrenaline is wearing off. I need someone else to tell me that everything looks good. When my symptoms go away, I get scared. The good news is, I take tests every once in a while and the line keeps getting darker. : )

Were you guys already having nausea at 6 weeks?


  1. You're so cute!

    I never threw up and only had a little nausea. My main symptom was just fatigue. I was pretty much symptomless after 10 weeks, but even before that I didn't have many. I felt like you though. I really wanted strong symptoms. I guess I was just lucky, and so are you!

  2. I didn't get sick either. I'd only feel a bit nauseus when I would get too hungry but snacking helped that. I always get antsy the week before our appt. It feels so good when you see your baby :) I'm almost 12 weeks now and don't really have any symptoms. I'm glad though because then I can enjoy it more :) can't wait to hear about your appt!!!

  3. You need someone who tells you everything looks good? Well...YOU're looking great! :D greats from Germany!

  4. I never really had any symptoms and I have a healthy 6 month old upstairs sleeping in her crib :) Try not to stress and stay off google :) Trust me!

  5. EEEEK I'm so excited for you!! This is crazy but we just got married and went on a long honeymoon. I came home and was checking up on blogs and coudldn't find yours so I assumed it had been deleted. Well what do I know, I spotted it today and youre preggo!! Yay!!

    congratulations again, even though it's a little late!!

    1. Oh! and i know you're just a few weeks along but if you hadn't taken the test when you did, could you of told you were pregnant at all? Like, could you tell right away or not at all if it weren't for the test.

    2. Not at all if it weren't for the test! My missed period was the only strange thing!
