7 Week Bumpdate

Due Date: April 10th, 2016

7weeks

How far along? 7 weeks 6 days (I am farther along now but am just posting this because I was not feeling very well. This is still the 7th week update.)

How big is the peanut? A blueberry

Total weight gain/loss? Still down  2.5lbs

Maternity clothes? Not yet. I’ve just been wearing loose-fitting items.

Sleep? I am sleeping a lot! My only problem is that I get nauseous when I sleep on my side so I’ve been waking up a few times in the middle of the night with the desire to dry heave.

Best moment this week? It did not start out good but ended up that way. Saturday morning (7w6d) I woke up and had red clotting. We went to the ER and had a multitude of things done – exam, blood work, and ultrasound. Thank goodness baby’s heart was beating away and measured 7w3d (a few days behind but they said that was nothing to worry about).

Symptoms? The nausea has kicked in and is quite the force to be reckoned with. My acupuncturist put these little bandaids with one small bead in each at various ear points. This helped immensely!

Food cravings? Nothing specific but I’ve been eating a lot of carbs because that has helped keep my stomach settled.

Food aversions? I can eat some fruit now but am still pretty much unable to eat anything too sweet.

Gender? Still saying little girl

Names: We’ve thrown a few around but have pretty much decided that we will wait until we find out if we are having a boy or girl.

Labor signs? None

Belly button in or out? In

What I miss? Nothing right now

What I’m looking forward to? Finding an OB

Milestones? Baby
