baby a : 5 & 6 weeks

How Far Along? 5 weeks

Size of Baby: Appleseed {0.13 inches}

Gender: n/a at the moment

Weight Gain: none so far…that’ll change for sure

Maternity Clothes: i dabbled some at target and destination maternity only because this bloat is UNREAL.

Nursery: currently has a cat tree in it and all of jazmyne’s toys. i have absolutely no motivation to even think about designing a nursery.

Movement: unless i have the jolly green giant in there i won’t be feeling much for a while.

Symptoms: the sure sign that should have tipped my off were my tatas. good lord. i literally hold them when i go down stairs. i’m also mega bloated. i look 4 or 5 months pregnant (see 6 wk bump photo below) that’s obviously not a baby. my doctor said it’s due to my tilted uterus and the amount of water i’ve been drinking. hooray….
and lastly, just exhausted. so so so tired.

Sleep: since i have been to tired lately, i am making it into my jams by 8:30 and passing out as soon as my head hits the pillow. not uncomfortable yet.

Cravings: pho! give me pho at any time in the day. i want it and i want it now. and milkshakes.

What I Miss:  cold cut meats. i am such a sammie girl and i miss just some good ol’ turkey! le sigh. coffee. oh my god. coffee. of course i had to exnay the 20 oz triple shot white mocha every morning. and i miss it so. helllllo water.

Best Moment This Week: seeing  baby a for the very first time! that’s way too early for an ultrasound you say…i’ll explain at the bottom, keep reading.

Looking Forward To: the next ultrasound in two weeks! and announcing that we are pregnant!

**k so here’s a little story about a girl with pcos. pcos, poly cystic ovarian syndrome, meaning my cycles are a mess and i have chronic cysts building up on my ovaries. fun right?! no. remember a couple weeks back where i had to go to the hospital because a cyst ruptured? yeah i can thank the not so nice witch from pcos land for that one. anyway, like i said, it messes with a woman’s cycle. while regular women would ovulate on day 13-15 i didn’t ovulate until day 25 throwing my dates completely off! so for the first week and a half that i knew i was pregnant, i thought i was closer to 8 weeks when i went in for my ultrasound. not even close people. when the tech started going in on baby a (literally) he was really confused by my dates and asked if i was sure. he was able to find the heartbeat but it was only 100 bpm, which i later found out from a call from my doctor that said that was way too low and i should be prepared for a miscarriage. (HOLY SHIT) something an expectant mom loves to hear, amirite?! after re-downloading all of my ovulation tracking apps and going over my dates with a magnifying glass, i called our midwives and explained my mess up and they assured me that me REAL first day of my last period definitely matches up with baby a’s size and heart beat. PHEW! i was a mess for a day and a half ya’ll. i was so upset and crying and just a complete mess. thank goodness it was all just a big date mix up and everything is a okay!

How Far Along? 6 weeks

Size of Baby: pea {.25 in}

Gender: n/a at the moment but i am convinced it’s a boy!

Weight Gain: still none

Maternity Clothes: yep got 3 pairs of preggo jeans and a couple shirts and tanks. i’m telling, ya’ll the bloat.

Nursery: still in shambles

Movement: nada

Symptoms: HELLLLLLLO NAUSEA!! it, excuse my french, fucking sucks! tic tacs seems to working for a bit but it’s like i became immune to their magic. i recently posted a status on facebook asking fellow moms what they did to ease it since i had none of this with jaz. i got some good advice and i’m trying all of it! zofran will be my last resort but i’ll go there if i need to.

Sleep: still exhausted so i’ve been sleeping well. cale did however, have to find me an extra pillow to put between my legs when i am laying on my side. it’s just so uncomfortable without it there.

Cravings: remember how i was craving pho? ew. don’t even come near me with that. i don’t even want to think about it. lately i have been craving salt. anything salty. which is weird because i never even cooked with salt. this baby is a gamechanger.

What I Miss:  i really wanted a spicy tuna roll the other day. but other than that, i’m not really missing anything.

Best Moment This Week: telling close family and friends. my sister cried, which was so sweet! so did my best friend, i facetimed her right after we took the test, it was just a big ol sob fest. woo

Looking Forward To: next weeks ultrasound to check in on baby a justttt to be sure everything is indeed okay and he is growing as he should.

 

after only doing two of these, i’ve decided that i’m only going to update y’all every couple of weeks because answers will be redundant and that’s just boring. so let’s say i will do an update with these questions every 4 weeks. i will keep doing the weekly bump photos and just include those all together at the beginning of the post. sound good? GOOD!
now here are the two ultrasounds we have gotten thus far and you can see baby a has grown over 8 times his size since our 5 week ultrasound! I’m growing a baby dinosaur, you guys. 

grow baby, grow!

always,

jess

  1. I hear ya on the nausea – morning sickness is no joke! I feel extremely sick within 2 minutes of waking up every morning, the nausea will stay around for a few hours, and then it’s back again every night. I feel like I read every single website or tip there is on morning sickness but have felt little relief. So many people told me I would feel better as soon as I hit the second trimester but I am now almost 16 weeks and still so sick. 😁
