How far along? 7 weeks (and 2 days if you care about the details)
Size of baby: 1 Tic Tac (I picture orange flavor. Those are my FAVORITE)
Total weight gain/measurements: +1.7lbs, but S. says my hands are freakishly skinny

Maternity clothes: Heck yes. My lower tummy is getting harder, so I rocked the maternity jeans, though they were a little big. Otherwise, just elastic. I had one work event, so I wore leggings and a maternity shirt, that didn’t scream ‘I’m with child’.

Sleep: The past few nights have been tough, I am a tummy sleeper, and my tummy hurts! So I toss and turn (and snore like a trucker). I just bought the most amazing maternity pillow – a Snoogle. I am napped with it this afternoon, and I think Snoogling will quickly become my favorite thing to do.

Best moment this week: We had another ultrasound today! He (we are calling it ‘he’ or ‘him’) is a little bigger and we officially are Shady Grove Graduates!! Off to an OB. Plus, when you see a strong heartbeat (his was solid, 139) the risk of miscarriage decreased to less than 5%. That makes me feel amazing.

Miss anything? Sleeping.

Movement: Still got a ways to go.

Food cravings: Nah. I am still obsessed with food. Mainly talking about it. What did you have for dinner? How did it taste?

Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing specific. Life I guess. I am pretty queasy all day.

Symptoms: fatigue, mild cramps, bloat, constipation, A LOT moody (just ask S.)
