Alright it is time for my first baby bump update! With my pregnancy with Addison I did these weekly but I don't think I'm going to do them that frequently with this one (sorry kid you are already getting shafted). I'm thinking maybe every other week. Maybe every 3 weeks, or maybe when I can remember to do it.
Thank you to Addison for my still existing pooch
How far along:
Well according to my doctor I am 5 weeks and 5 days but that is not possible since took my first pregnancy test on 2/2 and got a positive which would have put me at 2 weeks and 5 days getting a positive, and that is not humanly possible (way to early the baby isn't even fully implanted at that time). SO with all that said I am pretty sure I am at least 6 weeks and a few days so I am going to go with that.
As a back story to this I had my ultrasound on Tue. and we did see the heartbeat after quite a bit of searching. The baby implanted far back in my uterus and was hidden behind the yolk sac (which keeps the baby alive until the placenta can take over completely near the end of the 1st trimester) so we had a hard time getting a measurement since she had to go through the sac to get the measurement. She said she could easily be off and that at my next appt we would have a better idea about the actual age better.
How big is the baby:
The size of a blueberry
Our little #2. You can see how the doctor was measuring through the yolk sac. She said it was 5w3d give or take 5 days. I think it more in the give 5 days off range.
Total weight gain:
1 lbs so far but I have been so hungry this pregnancy so much more than with Addison plus I am not having much morning sickness so eating is much easier.
Pretty good, waking up at night to go to the bathroom but I did that before I was pregnant :)
Best moment of the week:
Getting to see our little one on the ultrasound and seeing the flicker of a heartbeat!
Red meat, which I had with Addison too.
Chicken, particularly chicken that I have to cook, if I have to see it raw I can not eat it.
Headaches, some nausea but mostly in the afternoon after 3 and at night. I feel pretty bad right before it is time to go to bed.
No clue, everyone says it is a boy but I have a feeling it is another girl myself.
What I'm looking forward too:
Our next appt so I can get a correct EDD, of course I was early with Addison so I would expect the same thing with #2
What I miss:
Strangely I miss things that I didn't even really eat/drink that often, like beer. I can't tell you the last time I had a beer before I got pregnant but as soon as I can't have it it looks so good to me.
March 27th, It is strange being so "normal" this pregnancy. With Addison they monitored me so much closer because of the miscarriage with my first pregnancy, I don't think I went more than 2 weeks without going to the doctor. 1 month seems like such a long time.
