How Far Along: 5 Weeks
Baby is the size of a(n): appleseed!
Gender Predictions: no definite feelings yet, but one of our friends think it’s a girl, and our nephew thinks it’s a boy! (and that we should name him “Knuckle Sandwich”)
Weight Gain: Maybe a pound or two. I’ve been so hungry! Started at 120 lbs.
Maternity Clothes: None yet, although I have my eye on some really cute ones from other blogging mommas.
Stretch Marks: None! Hoping my mom and my nanny’s good genes help me out! I also have Mother’s Friend cream on the way.
Belly Button In or Out: In
Wedding Rings On or Off: On
Sleep: Pretty good right now. I’ve been extremely tired.
Best Moment This Week: Positive tests and telling everyone!
Miss Anything: Sushi 😦
Movement: None, but I can’t wait!
Cravings: I don’t think I’ve had any true cravings yet, but I’m preferring salty/spicy foods. Anything sweet just tastes too sweet. Also, steak and cheese have been tasting odd to me. Two of my favorite things and they may be out for a while.
Symptoms: Sore boobs for sure! I had a little bit of nausea early on, but it seems to have ceased as long as I eat often. I’m hungry about every two hours right now! All in all, nothing too crazy. Pretty normal stuff!
Noteworthy Moments: A lot of people predicted this! My husband’s cousin (after making comments about me being pregnant) said the last time he made comments joking about someone being pregnant, my sister in law actually was! A co-worker told me he knew I was earlier in the week before I told them… he said I did something, like a mannerism, that his wife did the same thing while she was pregnant and he just knew. My boss also said he had a feeling I was too!
