Bump Update: 6 Weeks

on May 2, 2012

See that bump bloat? Pregnancy bloating is no joke.

How far along? 6 weeks

Baby’s size: sweet pea

Total weight gain: -.5 (I don’t really know how I lost weight. I’m attributing it to the fact that my preggo body seems to only want foods that are at least semi healthy – I haven’t wanted peanut butter m&ms, cookies, or chocolate in weeks)

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but my yoga pants are really the only comfortable pants I own now. Wish I could wear them to work.

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep:  had some rough patches this week. I’m trying to train my body to sleep on one side in preparation for the 2nd trimester and can already tell a pregnancy body pillow will be necessary.

Best moment this week:  blood work and doctor’s urine test both confirmed pregnancy

Food cravings: oranges (I used to hate oranges so this is weird); had a grapefruit craving but it gave me major heartburn, so I think it’s now an aversion 😛

Food aversions: Greek yogurt! Eating in general wasn’t fun this week. Every time I ate, I would get a stomach ache, so it made me less excited to eat. Saltines were my friend.

Gender:  team green

Symptoms: Holy bloating batman – the bloating was bad this week.  also my boobs are gigantic and sore; Queasiness most of the time, but no throwing up yet (yay!); still exhausted – would be happy as a clam if I could go to bed at 8 pm :P; the stomach aches are probably the worst – I tend to get them anytime I eat, and again when I’m trying to get ready for bed (I did discuss this with the doctor, she said most likely my stomach was not enjoying pregnancy and would need some time to adjust); hello super sniffer (see my super sniffer post from earlier)

Belly Button in or out? Innie

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy Happy Happy although, I did notice some pretty drastic mood swings. Hubs will probably need to be treated for whiplash before the baby comes.

Looking forward to: still looking forward to telling people and our next doctor appointment which is next Tuesday.

What I miss: I could have gone for some sushi this week
