Baby Brown Bumpdate - Week 6-8

After finding out we were expecting, I knew I would want to remember everything I am feeling right now, so bear with me as I catch you all up on the last few weeks of my pregnancy! If baby posts aren't for you, feel free to come back in a few days  for regular scheduled blogging.


Bumpdate || Week 6

How ­­far along: 6 weeks.  First doctor visit is schedule for 8 weeks on August 20!

Due date: We are thinking somewhere along the lines of late March or early April.

Baby Size: Lentil bean?? 

Weight gain: I've been around 136-138 for a while now, so lets go with 138 as my starting point.

Maternity Clothes: Nope. Haven't even thought about them other than the fact that this gives me a reason to shop, which the hubs isn't too happy about!

Stretch Marks: lathering up already with lotion - I can't imagine they will stay away forever though.

Sleep: Not sleeping the best.  I have already started to wake up in the middle of the night having to pee, continuously trying to get comfortable, etc.

Gender: wayyyy to early to tell, and I am still in disbelief this is happening to think about having a baby girl or boy right now! 

Name: We've been talking about names forever, but always end the conversation with "we will talk about this when the time comes" and now its here! We have names for a girl, but boy names are up in the air.

Movement: nada.

Best moment this week: sharing the news with D.J. - it was a sweet moment that had us in complete shock! I'll let you all in on how I told him in another post.

Looking forward too: being able to share our secret with the rest of our family and friends!

Husband is: loving his baby mama.  He's always telling me how beautiful I look, giving my belly kisses, and decided he has "quit" clubhouse casino so he doesn't loose anymore money. 

Food cravings: nothing in particular.  I did by Poptarts at the store yesterday because they were totally calling my name sitting on the shelf.

Anything making you queasy or sick: everything.  The first sign of pregnancy was nausea.  It has been a tad bit better lately, and I've been trying to make sure I eat enough, but nothing sounds good and I've noticed I already can't eat as much as I could a few weeks ago.

Labor Signs: ha - that's a joke.

Missing Most: being able to see D.J. everyday.  I'm back at home now as he finishes out the season.

Symptoms: nausea, sore ladies, a little spotting, and a constant nervous feeling when anyone I haven't told comes around or talks to me longer than one minute! Keeping this a secret is super hard!

Nursery: been thinking about things, but obviously still digesting the news.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I have a feeling these babies aren't making it 9 months.

Mood: loving this little life growing inside me!

Workouts: not happening.  My energy has gone out the door, but I'm hoping that next week I can get back in the swing of things and feeling better.

Questions for mamas: Best app for tracking pregnancy?


Bumpdate || Week 7

How ­­far along: 7 weeks.  Getting antsy for this doctors appointment next week!

Due date: Hoping for an official date next week

Baby Size: a cute little blueberry

Weight gain: staying constant between 136-138.

Maternity Clothes: Doing some blog stalking of other mamas out there and what they bought first.  We have a few weddings coming up, so I will need something to wear for those!

Stretch Marks: Loving the Palmer's lotion to prevent these babies.

Sleep: Meh. Not the best.  Having very vivid dreams and still waking up to pee. 

Gender: having a little baby girl intuition in my mama heart. 

Name: thinking hard on boys names still.

Movement: tummy is turning upside down still with nausea.

Best moment this week: the hubs got moved up to the next level in baseball this week! He is officially an Akron Rubberduck!

Looking forward too: our doctors appointment next week and making a spontaneous trip to MAINE this weekend.

Husband is: so excited about his promotion and be able to continue to chase his dream.  Mama and baby are so so proud of him!

Food cravings: nothing crazy.

Anything making you queasy or sick: everything in the mornings. 

Labor Signs: maybe I'll delete this question for now??

Missing Most: deli meat.  Turkey sandwiches are my go-to!

Symptoms: nausea, nausea and more nausea. Low energy and already getting up in the nights running to the bathroom to pee.

Nursery: we know what room the nursery will be, but still it's a junk room for now.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I have a feeling these babies aren't making it 9 months.

Mood: happy happy happy!

Workouts: a gym? hah.  maybe next week.

Questions for mamas: I can't even think about questions for other mama's right now! I'm sure they will start coming.  Please share anythings you feel is necessary for me to know!

Name: still no boys names set in stone.

Movement: nothing - still too early.

Best moment this week: by far the doctors appointment! It was a little sad that D.J. couldn't be there with me, but it was truly amazing.  There is a little baby baking away in my belly.  I heard the heart beat. It was one of the most amazing moments in my life. 

Looking forward too: D.J. being able to see the next ultrasound.
