6 weeks

Sorry for the lack of posting, this past week was seriously insane.  I worked 40 hours in 3.5 days so that I could have a long weekend for a friend's out-of-town wedding.  Then, after the wedding, DH and I went to visit my family to tell them our news!  We decided to go ahead and tell them now, since (heaven-forbid) if the worst were to happen again, we would definitely want to have their support.  We didn't tell them about Baby M until after we had already lost him/her, so we thought we would share the good news this time while we could.  And I am SO glad that we did.  They are all so ecstatic for us, and they had the best reactions!  One of my little sisters jumped and screamed, and the other told me she had to hold back her excitement because otherwise she would have peed her pants.  Haha!  I love them.  :-)

And now... my weekly post!

How far along?  6 weeks, 1 day.

Weight gain/loss:  Up 0.2 pounds from last week, but still down 0.2 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight.  And still super bloated!

Maternity clothes?  Yup, maternity jeans.  And I wear my elastic-waist (but surprisingly, not maternity) work pants every chance I get!  I haven't caved and bought bigger work pants yet; I've just been doing the rubber band-through-the-buttonhole trick to give myself a bit more room.

Stretch marks?  Nope.

Sleep?  As much as I can get.

Best moment this week?  Me and DH telling my family we were pregnant again.  Their reactions were priceless!

Food cravings:  Everything, as long as I'm not feeling nauseated.

Gender:  I still think it is a boy, but DH says girl.

Belly button in or out?  In.

Movement?  Way too early.

What I miss?  Caffeine... and not being exhausted ALL of the time.  (Again, of course I don't really mind.  haha)

What I'm looking forward to:  Our ultrasound tomorrow... feeling kind of nervous but mostly excited.

Milestones:  I now feel nauseated on and off all day, every day.  I take this as a good sign. :-)  Also, we have now told all of our parents about Baby C!


  1. I'm so glad everyone was very excited about the news!! We also decided to go on out with our news when we are :)

  2. Wow, you are showing already? Awesome!
    Due to the lack of support last time, we also think that we'll shout the news from the rooftops - when/if there is a next time.

  3. Joanna -- Well, I don't know if you consider it "showing", since at this point it is really just bloat since the baby is so small. haha But yes, I have had wicked bloat for several weeks now, and it definitely looks like a bump!

    Mary and Joanna -- I'm sure you both will have news to share soon. I think about you both often. Sending tons of BFP dust to you both! :-)
