Rainbow Baby Bump

I freaked out last night. I was having pretty intense cramps. I was in tears as Joseph was praying for me and our baby. I appreciate all the responses. This is where it started going down hill last pregnancy, but I’m trying my hardest to be content with however long I have with this baby. Today marks 5 weeks. I guess I’m probably going to do one of those weekly updates, I don’t want to be insensitive, I’m just trying to celebrate this baby. I know that some of you may not find my blog as applicable to your lives now, that is completely ok. But know, that I hope with all my might that all of you get your babies, and soon.

How far along: 5 weeks, but this update is for week 4.

Total weight gain: I’m actually down a pound, but its hard to say I’m down from my pre-pregnancy weight, ya know, because I’ve been pregnant for all of 10 seconds.

Maternity clothes: Nope. But I do have some shorts and such from a couple summers ago that are too small in the waist, but I’ve been muffin topping in them about once a summer. I think I’m going to go ahead and convert them to “maternity” shorts. But other than that I’m good.

Stretch marks: No, but I have started to think about getting some stretch mark cream. There are so many choices.

Sleep: Rough. I am super tired, but don’t sleep well.

Best moment of this week: Yesterday at my families derby party, Joseph was holding our sweet niece(born 1/1/14) and it was kinda fun to think that this time next year we’ll be holding a baby about the same size, but baby will be ours!

Miss anything: Blue cheese. It was like the night we found out we were pregnant, we went to Red Robin to celebrate, I wanted a big juicy blue cheese burger and onion rings. We were getting ready to order, when I realized, I can’t have blue cheese. Now I’ve been craving it ever since.

Movement: Baby is only the size of an appleseed.

Food cravings: food, and lots of it. I eat about every 2-3 hours. Maybe red meat.

Anything making you queasy or sick: getting too hungry.

Have you started to show yet: Just the bloat

Gender: No clue. Joseph says boy, I think Girl.

Labor signs: too early..

Belly button in or out: In, but I can hardly wait for it to be out!

Wedding rings on or off: I’m pretty bad about remember to wear rings, but just because I’m forgettful.

Happy or moody most of the time: Easily Cranky.

Looking forward to: Telling our families next weekend.



Oh little baby.

I have always like the progression of pregnancy pictures, so I could hardly wait to start our. I did on week 4. I know its kind of pathetic. And no, that isn’t a baby bump(obviously, just some prebaby fat.)


As far as feeling pregnant, I do. My uterus feels busy. Not crampy, or churning, but heavy, and like it has a lot of work to do. Laying in bed I can just feel it. Something I couldn’t do even 2 weeks ago. Thinking back on the last two week wait, if I was laying on my belly, I had this same feeling, a busy uterus. Just from like 8 day past ovulation, but I remember telling Joseph that my uterus felt hard.

We are going to clean out our nursery(it just has boxes from the move) as soon as Joseph release his game(TUESDAY woo!) I called and set up our appointments. We have our first ultra sound at 7 weeks 6 days (September 6th) then the 12 week appointment October 8th. I think we’ll tell our families the weekend of September 27th since my younger sister will be back in town from college.
