7 weeks

Yes, I am well aware that I completely skipped over 6 weeks. I'm pretty sure that I napped pretty much all the way through week 6. Sorry! But here is the latest update! Time is still dragging by as we wait for our very first OB appointment. We still haven't told anyone in real life other than a couple of my close friends who have followed our journey very closely.

Best Moment of the Week: Shopping for and trying on maternity clothes! My jeans and shorts absolutely will not button! I tried a bella band, and it works for most times, but there are some shorts/pants that it just won't stay put. So I have busted out the maternity shorts to wear to work. My XL work shirts cover up my belly for the most part, but it won't be long before people will start noticing. I'm sure that most of my belly at this point is just bloat as the baby is only the size of a blueberry.

Entertaing Question/Comment of the Week: Hmm. Nothing really entertaining being said this week. But I expect that will change as soon as we start sharing the secret with others!

Obsession: Looking in the mirror to see if I have a real bump or just an extra roll of fat!

What I Am Most Looking Forward to This Week: Definitely our doctor's visit and hopefully an ultrasound showing a beating little heart. That will make me breathe a small sigh of relief. My biggest fear is that I will go in to my appt and the doctor will have me pee on a stick and it will be negative and they will wonder what kind of psycho I am thinking I am pregnant all this time.

What I Miss The Most: Working out at the gym. I know that it is perfectly safe and normal and even good for me to work out, but I am still paranoid. I hope that after visiting with the doctor, she will help to put my mind at ease and I can get back into my gym routine. I have been doing Prenatal Yoga and Prenatal Pilates DVDs at home so I am at least getting some exercise.

Symptoms: Still T-I-R-E-D! My boobs have quit hurting and aren't quite so sore. I had a couple of days of on and off mild queasiness but (knock on wood) no full blown morning sickness. I am thankful for that, but in the back of my head I can't help but wonder if that means things are not developing like they should. And the newest: constipation! Ugh! I'm trying to drink lots of water, eat healthy, and do my exercises to help keep things moving, but so far I've not been too successful.

  1. Yay! I've been hoping for an update. I had to take a break from FF, that place was making me crazy!
